    @H1ggyLTD No mate. Drop into a remote location and grab your resources and practice, try to avoid the named locations if possible.

    Also when building remember wood offers the most HP when when first placing it down, metal is the least and is easiest to destroy until it's finally built, brick is the in between.

    I'm not an expert at building by any means but the settings I'm using are;

    Builder Pro
    Sprint cancel reloading - on
    Reset building choice - on
    Turbo building - on
    Auto material change - on
    Controller auto run - off
    Auto open doors - off
    Auto weapon pick up - off

    Cheers

    I always think, in any mp shooter, you should just be able to walk around the map in single player just checking stuff out without the stress.

    @H1ggyLTD I know what you mean, however the skill level is pretty low on the switch at the minute whilst people are getting used to the game so at the minute you've got a bit of a free pass.

    I played a squad game earlier and my 3 team mates followed me around like lost puppies, I was running off and bringing weapons back for them!! :D

    Good games mate. Got a few wins and some kills so all happy :) i recorded that shotgun rampage how funny. You seemed pretty good and more than happy to squad up anytime. Will play on switch next time aswell lol. Crossplay was flawless for me, what a great feature!

    Yeah, thanks for the games. Shame the PS4 couldn't be cross play, I do enjoy the switch one but I miss the smoothness of my PS4. I went of and done a few challenges.

    The shotgun rampage was brilliant. Upload a link to YouTube.

    Drop me an invite anytime I'm on as I much prefer duos/squads.

    Yeah hopefully Sony will play nice soon. I was on X so probably had a slight advantage over you lol. Will level it up and go on Switch next time. Was good fun anyway, thanks again! I do usually play squads or duos, but i like the big modes aswell as i find them good practise, as there is more people firing at you and more to deal with. Bit more hectic and you can go on some crazy rampages.

    Were you guys using headsets or just the inbuilt communication?

    I played Duo for the first time tonight. I got my partner involved as she has her own Switch. She's never played a shooter outside of Splatoon and literally draws a perfect circle around the enemy with her crosshair as she tries shoot them. However, she bought me back from being downed and bagged the winning kill on our third attempt. I think she's hooked now.

    No comms as i wasnt sure how it worked on crossplay as it was my first time doing it on Fortnite. Will sort that next time or il jump on Switch :) well done on the win! We won i think 2 out of 4 games on teams of twenty and we were both getting plenty kills. not dieing quietlyshould be the link to that video from earlier. i already had 8 kills but 1v11 is too much lol. Should get a squad of 4 going over weekend

    How do the Comms work? I mean.. I only have my wireless Sony 2.0s. I know the headphones work for sound not sure the chat does though.

    @Mrsyms1 great clip, like a shooting gallery. I hate the heavy shotgun as well

    I never used to use heavys and always used a pump, until the last update and i now use a heavy, as i find they do better headshot damage than pumps now. Not sure if thats correct but its just how it feels to me now. Really digging the thermal rifle now aswell, that 70-80 headshot damage is savage if you cant find a bolt action. What guns do you like to use?

    Shotguns, snipers and rocket launchers seem to be the only viable guns

    Yeah aside from early CQ fights most guns are a bit useless.

    Got a 13 kill match last night and still came 4th :cry: Though I'm pretty sure I got fucked over by two people working together in solos, they'd built a big fort and weren't shooting one another.

    I picked this up so I had something to play on my Switch, fully hooked now and playing it on the Xbox as well, got the battle pass too. Had a couple of second place finishes but I haven't done any building yet so I just get ruined if I do make it that far.

    Tried this out with my son today cos he's enamoured with it. How the fuck does anybody play this game. I thought pubg had a steep learning curve, with this I ran face first into a cliff.

    Here I am learning to point it in right fucking direction or work out the buttons when everyone else is whacking towers and floors everywhere and rinsing me on contact.

    Maybe the switch is not the right platform for me...

    @crashVoodoo Lol, yeah I always felt exactly the same, I've tried to get into it a few times. If you keep going you will get the hang of it - twenty hours into PUBG and I never had any confidence I could win a firefight, but I'm already way more comfortable in this.

    If you're on Switch are you using the joycon? Cause yeah that's playable but less than ideal.

    Hahahaha Pubg Corp. have dropped their lawsuit against Fortnite. Well, well Pubg boys are going to be pissed and I have an idea how hard they are going to be trolled on the community. I can't stop laughing. :lol:

    @samyboy I've translated your comment into a language those who don't spend all day on IGN will understand:

    "Some cunts will annoy some other cunts while everyone continues to not give a shit"

    I'm hoping the week I've had away from this game hasn't lead to a massive increase in player skill. I was enjoying playing against other hopeless folk who couldn't build any coherent structures.

    @DangerousDave_87 not to fear, I won a game of squads last night after my team mates died ASAP and I ended the game on 11 kills - the standard can be very low at times.

    I can't seem to see an option for allowing/not allowing cross play, is it set as enabled by default? could of sworn I seen a message below the map stating same platform one time but it's not there now.

    My Sony 2.0 headphones work both with game and chat so that's a bonus

    Got absolutely slaughtered tonight. Barely managed a kill per game and went down like a fly. Guess I'm shit, then!

    Yeah. Another failure. I just just can't down people quickly enough. Well. Unsurprising for a week off, I suppose.

    Won 2 games today. Also managed to die first in 2 games. So that evens out nicely.
