    Pubg player but gave a crack last night. Refreshing to have a high framerate all the time. Couple questions if I may..

    Any keyboard only reccomendations for build keys? The f keys suck..

    Can you drop a limited amount of items e.g. You have 5 bandages but want to drop 3..

    I can't answer the first question as I am on X1X and there's no direct build access, sadly.

    But on the second, yes you can choose from the inventory screen how many of the bandages/ammo etc you want to drop.

    On a related note, Epic have finally announced Xbox crossplay with PC.
    Yay now I can build a PC soon and until then jump on PC servers on my Xbox and see how I go.
    I'm now using kb/mouse on Xbox anyway so it's probably more fair to be on PC servers.
    I know lots of console players despise us kb/mouse users. :D

    Oki ill just have to figure out how to choose how many to drop.

    Crossplay favors PC, xbox people wont like it, even though alot probably use XIM4 etc.

    Wouldnt take much grunt to get 144fps @ 1080p, PC for sure mate. (be sure to get 144hz panel!)

    1060 be a good card, even a 1050ti!

    I use 'f' for walls, 'c' for ramps, and 'v' for floors/ceilings.

    The glider can only be deployed via jump pads.

    I stopped playing this a couple months ago due to the frustration of having a shitty internet connection and the constant patch updates. I was spending more time downloading updates than playing the game. But I finally got the nbn a couple days ago so I've been able to jump back into this.

    But damn, things have changed. I feel so rusty having to learn the map again. Different areas, new weapons, graphics look so much nicer and the game seems to be even more optimised than before. Although is it just me or did they reduce the draw distance a bit, even for those on maxed out settings? I could have sworn that when I was diving out of the bus I could see chests from much further away. Anyway, everything just feels much nicer and more polished now.

    Also I've noticed that you don't have to spend as much time on the lobby/island waiting for the server to fill up. Games start within seconds, not minutes. Seems like the online population has exploded.

    There is indeed. I think it's unlocked at level 100 with a battle pass. Been enjoying this quite a bit lately, one of the few multiplayer games I've been able to get into in the last few years.

    Quick question... I've played approx 3 games and sucked in all of them. Only have the free BR version. Seem to get a different skin each time. Is that by design? Or if you have bought the game you can change skins or something?

    With any game it's just practice, practice, practice. Start learning where the chests spawn so you have a chance of getting a good gun from the get go. If you're playing with randoms in squads there's a high probability you'll be put in a team that sucks, which doesn't help the gameplay experience.

    As for the skins, there's a set pool of plain skins which get assigned at random if you don't have access to any custom skins. If you want use one of the custom special skins you'll have to buy it from the store using "v-bucks". These can either be bought in cash from the store or you can earn the v-bucks for free in the full paid version of Fortnite by completing challenges. All the skins are purely aesthetic and don't give any competitive advantage.

    I got given a copy of the paid version by goose. Oh man that JW skin looks so cool though.

    Happy to join with some experienced players to get into the game :)

    Finally, Epic allows for username changes so I updated mine.

    The sound engine in this game is absolutely atrocious.
