Fortnite is definitely on the unique side of things when it comes to Battle Royale games. The game has some awesome mechanics that, if utilized well, can be both deadly and hilarious to look at.
Fortnite requires quick thinking and creativity if you want to become one of the best. The possibilities seem endless, and that's exactly what makes this game so popular to both play and watch.
Read on for 10 awesome Fortnite moments that perfectly showcase what this game has to offer when you use its mechanics to their fullest extent and why it's as popular as it is.
Twitch streamer Stormen finds two people duking it out on the Fatal Fields. Instead of letting them kill each other, he decides to literally jump in and takes out both players with some spectacularity along the way.
Stormen went in at high speed and came out of the fight with two eliminations to his name. This is a great example of showing us how creativity in gaming can be rewarded by some of the best moments you'll experience in gaming, either live on stream or in-game.
Taking a shot from an unexpected angle always works. Twitch streamer cdnthe3rd knows this particularly well. When he spots his enemy, he takes a very quick sniper shot through a crack in the roof, leaving his poor opponent wondering what the heck just happened.
This clip proves that even when you think you're safe in Fortnite, you might not be as well protected as you thought. So stay on your toes at all times, and check your roof every now and then -- it might be in need of repair.
This unknown player might have just proven school can be very useful when it comes to gaming by showing his knowledge of physics with this impressive kill.
After jumping on some bouncy tires, he perfectly throws his grenade at his enemy, resulting in an exploding kill that leaves behind only a pile of loot. So maybe pay a little more attention to your teacher the next time they are explaining something. It might as well give you some valuable skills.
Not that long ago, Fortnite got an update that made all player-built structures that are not connected to the ground destroy themselves. However, a player in Twitch streamer Soapyfries' game doesn't seem to know this and learns about it the hard way.
Soapyfries destroys the first piece of this stairway to heaven and watches until his enemy drops to his death. From now on, this unfortunate player will definitely read through all the patch notes.
A lot of Fortnite players believe traps are weak and useless. Twitch streamer Alucotv shows us that this is not the case at all. He tactically places his trap underneath his unexpecting enemy and then proceeds to destroy the floor above him, making his enemy fall to a painful death.
This clip shows us that traps can be very powerful when used the right way. Traps can also be really annoying when it comes to dying from them, and I may or may not be speaking from experience here.
Sometimes hiding is your only option. It doesn't seem all that manly, but it surely can pay off, as YouTuber Chemicalgaming shows us. After letting a squad of three players pass him, he pops out of his hiding spot and sprays down his enemies while they are focused on his friend.
These unfortunate players surely won't trust a virtual bush ever again, and maybe you shouldn't, either -- or this is what might be waiting for you as well.
Sometimes you've got to take a small hit to pull a big heist. Twitch streamer Shadoookietv proves the truth behind this saying in a hilarious manner.
After getting downed by two enemies, Shadoookie crawls to safety with his spike trap as his only form of protection. One of the enemies tries to follow him and is inevitably impaled by the spikes. The teammate rushes over to his fallen ally and tries to finish off Shadoookie. He then proceeds to revive his teammate, not realizing one of his feet is still on the trap, finishing off both him and his ally.
When your resourses are limited, you need to be as efficient as possible with what you have. Twitch streamer Gingerpop does this by trapping a poor unarmed player and tossing a grenade at him, saving himself some valuable bullets.
Not only was this highly effective, but it's also hilarious to watch (although I can only feel for the player who got trapped and humiliated live on stream in front of hundreds of viewers).
Massively popular Youtuber Vikkstar123 is trying out rocket riding with his squad. Near the end of the game, they spot three enemies on a hill. Within moments, Vikk gets launched towards them and completely annihilates his enemies, gaining a really satisfying triple kill.
What looked like the action of a madman got heavily rewarded in favor of Vikk and his team, proving once again that achieving something big requires you to take some risks.
Twitch streamer Lolhero shows he belongs among the best Fortnite players out there. In this clip, he 1 v 2's a duo with his impressive building skills alone. This is some of the highest-level Fortnite play you can get and requires a lot of quick thinking and precision.
This GIF doesn't do justice to the full video; I highly suggest you watch that.
These clips prove why Fortnite is as popular as it is and why it will most likely continue to grow and become even better. I hope you're having a great time playing Fortnite.
