    Yeah that's completely different to using a xim against other pad users though.

    Not really, pad players are just as fucked either way.

    On Switch, my friends list shows people are playing Fortnite, but in-game it says none are...?

    Even through epic friends list it was saying you were offline, was totally wierd. I did just get disconnected from a game when i was on 7 kills (typical) and it said they were experiencing party issues so maybe related. Im getting some food and if anyone is on later we should try get a squad going (if its even possible) yeah only 1 map mate

    @H1ggyLTD yes there's only one map. The friends inv issue was the same last night when I was trying to join Dave but said he wasn't online in game. I've sent you an epic friends request which I believe you can accept in game.

    @Mrsyms1 not sure if I have you on my friends list but I'm just having a bite to eat as well and will be online after the footy if you/anyone wants to team up.

    I don't have a mic though unless my PS4 2.0's work on the switch for chat.

    Didn't quite get the win here, but the winner and I got 20% of the overall kills between the two of us. I got 6 right off the bat just from where I landed... Could have won it but unfortunately found myself attempting to dodge rockets from a dude in a Port a Fort.

    I don't know how you do it, Duff. I've managed no more than 3 kills a game. I can regularly survive until the final 5 and I've won once, but I just can't aim for my life in this game!

    @DangerousDave_87 well, it depends where you drop in many respects. If you drop close under the early path of the bus you'll be in for a fight early. If you wait until later and move away from the flight path you'll be more isolated for large periods.

    One thing worth doing in later stages is remembering which route the bus took across the map, since that will dictate the angles other players are most likely to be approaching from.

    Whereever you are aiming to land you should remember the glider takes a while to fall - you can cover roughly 2 grid squares in my experience so don't wait until you're right over or in line with somewhere before you drop, go earlier. Ideally you'll be 2 squares away when you hit glider height.

    Don't over emphasise item rarity either, even the common tactical shotgun is great for killing people. I'd favour it over the technically better pump action for the fire rate. Also wouldn't fire on people in the late game unless you reckon you'll easily get them. It's tempting to go for snipes but someone you haven't seen will probably know you're there as a result.

    I recommend the Builder Pro control scheme as well, makes building quickly very easy in a pinch and really good for outmanouvering people.

    Because mouse and keyboard users get put against other k&m users, xim users get put with pad users. Or am I mistaken and they are all in one pool?

    Either way xims are cheating on just about any other PS4 shooters and they should work out how to ban them.

    I've had the Xim for a few years because I get terrible thumb cramps from the constant clicking of L3/R3. It certainly wasn't bought specifically for Fortnite!

    It doesn't make me a better player either, it just allows me to actually play the game for longer periods. Moaning about people using M&K is like moaning that someone is using an Xbox controller on a pc. You use what you find comfortable.

    Just win my first solo game (having previously won a squad game in which my 3 teammates all died very early on). My most aggressive play yet (with 5 kills) and I had to try and predict the level of dip on the sniper rifle shots (managed 2 headshots). Ended the game with 4 people spectating me, which didn't panic me at all. Haha.

    I donít see the problem ending the game with one kill. The objective of the game is to survive right? There is some games where I donít see people till the final 10

    I'm actually the same. Its more that I don't get a lot of practice in with combat and tend to die when I reach the last 2 or 3.

    If you want combat practice it's best to drop near-ish the bus path (avoid Tilted and Dusty Divot for now as they're really, really busy) and you should get a few people dropping with you. It's good practice for dropping early and finding a weapon. I like to check and see where other people are dropping relative to me, finding a chest ASAP then focusing on hunting down the others.

    I landed at Risky Reels one game yesterday and had 6 kills right off the bat which was fun.

    I've noticed player numbers drop to sub-50 really fast so if you're dropping far from the bus it's not surprising at all that you're not seeing many people until the end. I was visiting some locations for the various challenges and if they're away from the bus I didn't see anyone for a while too.

    I've gotten quite good at spotting people as the circle closes in though, had a lot of flanking kills on unsuspecting people. I like to get to the edge of the safe zone early then stalk around waiting for people rushing to get there last minute.

    Who else is having the dreadful lag after the last update? It's just going nuts. Mine seems to be broke, if anyone else is facing the same? Let me know please. Pubg is as buggy as it gets.

    @Duffking I tried to join your game last night when I seen you were online however as it did with Dave there was no option at all to join you stating no friends online.

    I hope they sort that out.

    I've seen you both online when I've appeared online. It doesn't always bring you up on the main screen as a party option, but if I hit the plus button your names are frequently listed as online.

    Holy mother of mercy! I managed 3 Victory Royales in a row! :o Managed to confuse a tower builder in the final game by building concrete walls everywhere. He soon had no idea which one I was behind and as soon as he stuck his head out to destroy one I got my only kill!

    Had this downloaded on the ps4 pro and hadn't played it much. Just gave it a bash on the switch and it's great. Won my first game. Decided to download to my Xbox so I can link accounts . Great fun
