If you’re new to Fortnite Battle Royale then you may be looking for some pointers to get started, or if you’re a more experienced player then perhaps you’d like to top up your existing knowledge. Either way, we’ve got advice on how to play Fortnite to get you started along with a set of Fortnite tips for all the things you should know before playing.

As well as the main points of interest, which are Named Locations on the map, there are also lots of Fortnite Landmarks dotted around the place. These pop up as a notification at the top of the screen when you arrive, and so far we’ve flagged about 50 of them in our guide. If you’re specifically looking for Fortnite EGO outposts then we have a separate guide on them too.
Epic has done away with the old Battle Pass challenges in favour of Fortnite Missions this time, which is a similar system but rather than being called Week 1, Week 2, etc. each one now has a specific theme, with eleven challenges to complete rather than the previous seven. There’s a lot of sweet rewards to earn, and we have complete guides for every single challenge this season. That’s a lot of challenges and missions!

These are contained within Fortnite itself, so aren’t quite as exciting as your regular Trophies or Achievements sadly, though with 50+ of them to tick off there’s plenty to keep you busy if you want to complete the set.
