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 make sure they have good cover before attempting to use a the Medkit, as it takes a long time (10 Seconds) to use.
  • Players should really only attempt to use the Medkit at low HP , as the time it takes to restore health is long. However, if there is enough time, the Medkit can be used to restore any amount of health.
  • If the player is caught in the storm and has more health than 10 seconds worth of storm damage, they can use the Medkit to help them survive.
