In late July of 2019, Fortnite held its first Fortnite World Cup Finals, with a staggering $30 million prize pool. The winner of the solo event was 16-year-old Kyle Giersdorf. He took home $3 million in prize money. Needless to say, Fortnite’s esports scene is booming, and players are more driven than ever. Regardless of whether it’s to compete in one of these giant tournaments or simply to get more than a couple kills without dying, many people are constantly trying to improve.


1. Adjust Sensitivity

One of the first and easiest things that everyone should do when they begin playing a new game is to adjust their sensitivity. It’s a common theme across most shooters that beginner players set their sensitivity way too high. If you’re playing on a PC, you should begin by turning off mouse acceleration in the Windows mouse settings. This is an old setting that subtly changes how far your mouse moves. Turning it off allows you to have more consistent aim. Beyond this, there are many other sensitivity settings for both mice and controllers. In general, a lower sensitivity is best. However, if it’s too low, you’ll struggle to quickly adjust to enemy movements. At the end of the day, a sensitivity should feel comfortable.
