The Mobile Version of Fortnite Battle Royale – How does It work?
Fortnite Battle Royale is a survival game produced by Epic Games. While PUBG, a similar game, is available at a price, Fortnite is completely free to download and play. Just destroy all enemies and win the game in a free and fun filled way. Isn’t that something you would just love, if you are die hard gamer like us, right?
Fortnite Battle Royale is exactly similar to PUBG in almost all respects. In fact, it is one of those games which follow the concept of last man standing. The bus carrying 100 players strays into an island. The island is quite huge and has no inhabitants of any kind. You, as a player, is left alone with 99 other players. You need to fight with the other players to survive.
The game is completely optimised for the mobile version and has everything that you have so far played on your PC. Or if you have played PUBG on your phone before – you should have a clear idea of how the game performs.
The gameplay is simple to understand. You are left with 99 other players in an uninhabited island and engage in a battle with the other players for survival. No friends, no teams and no comaraderie of any nature. Pure fight for survival is what the game expects you to follow. You need to destroy everything around you to be a winner.
When the game begins, you have a safety circle around you that is large enough. Thus you have enough room to save yourself. As you proceed with the game, the safety circle would go on reducing, thus bringing you and the other players closer. The gameplay becomes more and more intense and powerful – and even gory at times.
The Weapons and Ammunitions
Well, as soon you enter in the game arena, the first thing expected of you is to check the buildings around and collect weapons and other items available there. The game has a host of different weapons you can choose. Some of them are Assault rifles, Pistols, Shotguns, SMGs, Sniper rifles, Launchers, Melee weapons, and grenades.
The weapons come in multiple shapes, sizes and capabilities. Each of the weapons are classified according to the rarity and are color coded. Here is the classification of the weapons –
- Grey: Popular
- Green: Not common
- Blue: Rare
- Purple: Epic
- Orange: Myth
Apart from the weapons, you can also collect other items like wood and metal. You can get those items by destroying a few items across. Houses, trees, vehicles and whatever you find. You can use all these items you collect to build items for your defense. In fact, smashing the items around your location would help you make the location safer for you.
The items like wood and metal can be helpful in creating temporary shields to protect yourself.
Fortnite Battle Royale is one of the excellent options in terms of an excellent graphics. In fact, the game has better graphics than its closest competitor – PUBG. It may not be the perfect 3D game, but still it does come with a good graphical performance.
The colors are quite vibrant. The animations resemble cartoons more than a survival game. If you are looking for excellent graphics, it may not be your cup of tea. However, the game is quite beautiful enough. The game is quite lighter than PUBG.
