The main feature of these strengths is that they can be updated in a way that provides more security to the player.
In this sense, there are different types of pieces with which you can create the strengths of each player among which are:
Modalities of game
There are two game modes in Fortnite which differ mainly in the objective that you want to complete in the game. These modalities are: Fortnite: Save the World and Fortnite: Battle Royale.
The first game mode (Fortnite: Save the World) consists of a game of few people, usually four, who cooperate in order to complete several missions distributed throughout the territory. The story of this game mode consists of the existence of creatures called “husks” which behave like zombies, then, the players act as the heroes of the territory and have the goal of saving as many people as possible, building shelters to throughout the territory and stopping the spread of these creatures.
The second method of play (Fortnite: Battle Royale) represents the most popular game mode today, since it takes place on an island with a finite territory, where approximately 100 players face each other at the same time, eliminating each other little by little, in order that only one player or a group of players survive. In this sense, it can be played individually or collectively.
The players start without any resource or weapon, so it is necessary to go through the space in which the game is developed to obtain weapons and sufficient resources to survive before the other players. The special feature of this game mode is that the terrain in which it develops is reduced every certain period of time, which encourages players to get closer and closer, forcing them to face each other constantly.
How to update your character
In Fortnite each player can create an avatar that has specific qualities that will depend on the taste of home player. In this sense, each player has personal tools that can be updated to improve the abilities of the avatar.
However, to achieve this it is necessary to have the so-called V-Bucks, which represent the currency with which the game is handled internally. This coin is obtained from the game play game Save the World, and can be used when you are in the second game mode. With this coin you can buy both cosmetic items, to decorate the avatar, and battle items, to improve the game skills of that avatar.
It is for this reason that the save the world mode is being updated so that the only way to enter that game mode is to buy a kind of access that allows the player to enter this world a win V-Block. This is the way in which the creative company of the game manages to obtain gains of the popularity of the same one.
In this sense, updates to the avatar in the game are difficult to obtain if you do not buy access to the game mode of saving the world, although it should be noted that the Battle Royale mode is still completely free.
