Looking to improve your Snapchat story with higher kill Fortnite wins? This how to guide is exactly what you need to become a top slayer in your solo matches.

A new YouTube video breaks down a practical and detailed guide to help you improve your slaying abilities when going solo in Fortnite Battle Royale, and rack up kills to impress friends and boost your stats.

YouTuber “MonsterDFace”, known for insightful and entertaining Fortnite tips and tricks videos, details how to chase for high kill games in his latest guide.

Obviously, for players looking to rack up kills, playing aggressively and optimizing your kit to include a diversity in range, accuracy and power is key.

MonsterDFace rather surprisingly recommends not looting every building where you initially land, but instead focusing on getting sufficient materials and appropriate weapon to engage enemies.

He also advises you farm trees as you travel, but without wasting too much time farming instead of pushing for kills.

Players should also take note that it is vital to maintain high health and shield, and always look to carry shields, in case confrontations get a bit hairy.

Finally, he advises:

“Never try and make these games shotgun battles, but if you’re chasing that high kill game you better get your hand-eye coordination on point, and you better be warmed up.”

One tip you can apply immediately is to focus on positioning, using the optimal camera angle to line up shots better in close quarter situations.

All of this will of course come down to practice, but application of all the tips in MosterDFace’s guide should have you increasing your kill count in no time.

Fortnite Houseparty: How to use new video chat feature & get free Wrap

With Fortnite’s brand new update, Epic Games has added integration with Houseparty, which allows players to video chat while playing the hit battle royale game. You’ll even be able to unlock a special wrap for your weapons.

Fortnite Season 4 is almost on its way out, with it set to end at the tailend of November. Despite this, Epic Games still has a few cards up their sleeves for players before Chapter 5 starts. One of these new features is the implementation of Houseparty, a service that allows players to communicate with each other.

Added in the v14.60 update, the new Houseparty feature will be available for Fortnite players to start using on November 18, according to Epic Games’ blog post. But how does it work and how can players set it up? Here’s everything you need to know about the brand new feature in the popular battle royale game so that you can be ready when it goes live in-game.

What is Fortnite x Houseparty?

Epic Games/Houseparty
Players will soon be able to use the Houseparty video app within Fortnite.

According to the company themselves, Houseparty is a social media app that allows eight people to video chat at one time. Think of something like Zoom, FaceTime, or Google Hangouts, but only for eight people. Players can add friends and invite them into private video chats.

For the Fortnite implementation, players will need Houseparty installed on their iOS or Android device in order to properly frame the camera on your face. That being said, the chat will appear on the side of your Fortnite game while you’re playing.

Unfortunately, the Houseparty implementation will only be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC for the time being, so if you’re on Xbox or Switch, you’re out of luck for now.

Fortnite x Houseparty in-game reward

Players who link their Houseparty account with their Epic account will be rewarded with a free in-game Rainbow Fog wrap, which can be used on any weapon in Fortnite. The wrap itself is pretty cool to look at and seems to be at least partially inspired by Houseparty’s hot pink and yellow color combination.

Because the app is only available on PlayStation devices and PC, players on other systems have another way to get their hands on the Rainbow Fog wrap.

According to Epic, from November 20 and November 26, players who play five Fortnite matches with friends will receive the wrap by December 4, 2020. It’s unclear if this method is available for PC and PlayStation players as well.

Fortnite x Houseparty account link instructions

Linking your two accounts is a bit of a pain. Between downloading apps and signing up for services you more than likely don’t have accounts for, it’s hassle in order to use this new service. That being said, it may be worth it to those who want a new way to chat with their friends or if you simply want the new weapon wrap.

  1. Download Houseparty on your iOS or Android device and create an account.
  2. In the app, link your Epic Games account with your Houseparty account using the in-app prompts.
  3. You’re two accounts should then be linked and video calls will show up on screen the next time you start up Fortnite on your PC or PlayStation device.

All in all, it seems like a great feature for those who want a new way to chat with their friends. Here’s hoping that Epic implements more services like this in the future.
