Strategy Guide

Calculated - Emote - Fortnite.png
The risk was calculated... but I'm bad at math.
This section outlines a strategy. Feel free to add tips, tricks and general advice about the topic.


  • Players should aim above targets at long ranges to compensate for bullet drop. The further the target the higher the player should aim.
  • Players should aim in the direction a target is moving at long ranges to compensate for the bullet travel time. The faster and further the target the further the player should aim.
  • It functions much like the Semi Auto Sniper Rifle an due to it’s faster-than-average bullet rate and low bullet drop in some case it can substitute for your Assault Rifle.
