When the Battle Royale game begins, you'll find yourself in a waiting area, right up until all 100 players have loaded into the game. In this area, nothing matters at all, so feel free to scavenge around and test out any weapons you come across. You'll definitely want to give automatic weapons a try if you can find them, as there can be some pretty severe weapon recoil to deal with, as well as a randomised bullet spread with automatic weapons.
Meet the Battle Royale Battle Bus.
Once the Battle Royale game eventually begins, you'll be transported to the Battle Bus, and a timer will count down to when you can jump out. Bring up your map to tell which way the Battle Bus is headed, as the starting point of the bus itself will be randomised each game, so you'll have to always check manually on the map to see if the Bus is due to pass over any landmarks on the map. You'll need to choose when to jump out of the plane, and ideally aim to land nearby a building on the ground.
This is because the second that you eventually hit the ground, you'll want to immediately make it to your nearest building, as this is where you can find all the weapons and ammunition in Fortnite Battle Royale. You won't find any weapons or ammo just out in the wilds of the map, as it's instead all contained within houses and other buildings. Make sure any ammo you've picked up is loaded into your equipped weapons, and then scavenge your surroundings for any useful items you can pick up.
