Get the best drop in Fortnite!

In Fortnite, the quicker you land in your desired drop spot, the quicker you can loot. Landing faster will guarantee that you are the first at your chest, so you can punish the enemies faster. Everyone knows how to drop, but you can use tips to ensure you have the best drop in the game. We have prepared a guide to help you be the first player on the ground.

How to land first in Fortnite

These are the best tips to land first in Fortnite:

  • Select an area near your preferred drop spot. It has to be close, avoiding being too far away from your flight path.
    • Preferably between 150 to 300 meters.
  • The glider will open automatically before you hit the ground.
    • Ensure that the glider will open as close to the ground as possible.
  • After you jump from the bus, dive straight down to go faster.
    • Make sure you look at the map to see the speed of your diving.
  • You will need to avoid any hills, mounds, mountains, or elevated terrain.
  • Look for the lowest altitude location and go to it.
    • Having water near your drop spot will make it easier, as water is at the lowest altitude in the game.
  • If you want to land on tall buildings you will have to jump sooner.
    • Make sure you get the timing and angle right.
    • Deploying the glider sooner can get you further.
