As Fortnite’s 7th season rolls on, here are some incredibly useful tips that will bring returning players back to fighting shape

Both competitive and casual Fortnite players have been seeing a noticeable uptrend over the past few seasons. While there are no definitive active player statistics to verify this, multiple creators have noticed this trend

Most notable of all is Hypex, perhaps the most notorious data-miner and Fortnite content creator. Social media impressions on his account is through the roof

Just halfway through the season, Hypex already passed last season’s impressions and almost doubled the views from all of season 3. As more and more players return to Fortnite, now’s a pretty good time to refresh returning players about the major meta developments in 2021

This list was inspired by u/pinicking

Crafting options

Access a crafting menu which are available at practically every major POI

Cars -- use them

Cars were perhaps the most notable addition to chapter 2. Learn where the fastest cars spawn and use them as overpowered early game movement

Wear your parasites

This season featured an "out-of-this-world" update. No, seriously. Aliens and stuff, pretty cool. Just make sure to wear this guy if you want to save yourself from a 200 pump

Pump shotgun is still meta

Speaking about a 200 pump... hello old friend. Yes, pump is still in the game. Yes, it's the only close range gun that can do 200 damage in one click. Some things never change

Placement meta

FNCS and Dreamhack Majors have all slowly drifted to a placement forward meta. Frag out in the endgame but make sure you're also getting deep placements in upcoming competitive events

Best of luck to all returning players; follow us on Twitter for more Fortnite updates!
