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.
