Every game a handful of players will be allowed to hit the ground faster either due to a glitch or real life cheating. 50 meters is the minimum you can open yet people are opening their chutes directly on rooftops with no glide. I’ve tested it gliding in and dropping directly above a POI and no matter what happens there will still be someone who gets to land before you do. This game brings in so much money that the effort they put out, in terms of fixing issues, is pathetic.
fuk ootube (24 days ago)
so since the glider is always constant given each player pops their glider in the same spot, could that not be neglected and rather the focus of the experiment be which player arrives to the point where the glider opens first?

8 months into the game and you're just now making a video that has been made thousands of times on the topic of how to land faster. Ok, whatever.

When I go to drop tilted I always feel like people land faster than me. HELP!

can you test of doing a corkscrew gets you on the ground faster compared to soaring and the other method mentioned

Perhaps worth noting for newer players: *trees count as terrain* when popping your glider. Let's say you find that beautiful low point in the valley to pop open that sweet season-victory royale glider, right? Make sure there's no tree under you because the thought of having 30'' of hard wood, in diameter, getting shoved where it doesn't belong *will* make your character pop open that shute earlier.

There used to be a glitch in season 0 where you could bypass the height your glider opens. Rip.

The real question i came here for is: once you've determined your "deployment point" (1 to 1.5 squares away) is it then better to jump off (almost) right above that place and jump down very steep? Or do you jump out even 1 square or more before that "deployment point" and go more diagonally?? Suggestions anyone? And no the answer was not in his graph
Kind Old Raven (1 month ago)
Doesn't matter. You'll land at almost exactly the same time, if done correctly.

Video starts: Moving while gliding and gliding straight down don’t make a difference.. *lands before the guy gliding straight down* haha
Shawn Stone (1 month ago)
Didn't even touch on the fact that jumping out of the bus before it is perpendicular to the POI is normally way better.
CPT Purrfect (1 month ago)
I believe it isn't just the ground DIRECTLY below you that is checked (for force opening the glider) but it is more like a sphere arround you. (maybe not perfectly round, but you get the idea), so it feels to me anyway.

If you land near hills or mountains your glider deploys soony than when away Edit: nevermind they covered this :p

Question. How come sometimes I jump straight down as fast as I can and someone will go whizzing right by me?

I did a ton of math on this. (More than I should’ve) but there’s more to just landing 1.5 squares away.. but it’s a good estimate. Maybe one day I’ll make a YouTube video on it. But then everyone will beat me to the loot
Jason Roberts (1 month ago)
how do u measure 1.5 squares?

I've seen so many fuckos not whip out the parachute until they're already practically on the ground
Big Auntie Sean (10 days ago)
If I jump as soon as the battle bus hits 0 and there are still players landing first then the “visual glitch” is just a way of explaining how players are consistently landing sooner than others. Seems like an issue that should’ve been address but the game is in its dying stage anyways, so it’s whatever.
Big Auntie Sean (10 days ago)
Thewalk4756 I have a clip from season 4 of a player shooting at me while I took cover behind a truck in moisty mire. Replaying the video I saw damage numbers coming off the wall that he was hitting, instead of me, and it killed me. So either this game is extremely broken in some aspects and they don’t put their “earnings” to improving the game or hacking is happening a lot more often. I’ve seen other games have this same delay issue but when it comes to a competitive game, this just ain’t it.
Yancey James (1 month ago)
They probably got lucky b/c sometimes fortnites not fair
PointBlank (1 month ago)
It’s a visual glitch
Thewalk4756 (1 month ago)
Hmm. I'd assume that for a popular game it would be hard to cheat.
Matt Pickard (1 month ago)
Moving does affect descent speed after deploying your glider, but your have to spin your character clockwise or counterclockwise. It creates an inward effect and actually does make you reach the ground faster.
Nirvana NeverDies (1 month ago)
Thanks for not shoving a bunch of fortnit propaganda in ur vid... you got straight to the point without all the bullshit free vbuks none sense 👍🏻👍🏻👌🏻

jeffrey gonzalez (1 month ago)
Gliding on your side or backwards seems faster too but I can't confirm it
Boshua Borman (1 month ago)
This shit is so obvious
LKA Fighter (1 month ago)
If everyone lands first, no one does.
xilliam (1 month ago)
LKA Fighter haha right on
Chris Ledger (1 month ago)
Look at your map and make your drop angle at the point where you have lots of speed but are looking as far down as possible and that is the best angle. Combine it with diving strait down/pulling out glider early for short and long drops and you always get the fastest drop from where you jump Unless terrain gets in the way
Eirnin (1 month ago)
Also when moving backwards with the glider deployed will make you hit the ground quicker but you won't move backwards as quick as someone moving forwards.
tabundo001 (1 month ago)
Second part is true, first part is bullshit. Cant go down faster.

NOTE!!! SKIP A THIRD OF THE VIDEO!!!!! and even then he doesnt cut the bullshit until towards the end...... 5 min video.... MAAAAAAAAYBE 10 seconds of it is actually relevant :l
The333er (1 month ago)
it's porbably not that much relevant if you are playing the game for some time...but if you're new it is idd relevant
Stoned420Guru (1 month ago)
FaZe Sweg you're a fucking idiot, it's a relevant you cunt. Showing visual proof you cunt. If I saw this video in just 10 seconds it'd be " fact, drop in low points and deploy 3 squares out and glide in 1.5 squares in, thank and like the video" But your dumbass would then reply "hur hur doi uh show us proof that it works hur hur hur I'm not just taking your word for it dur"
Joseph Xave (1 month ago)
You clearly haven't seen other fortnite youtubers, they are far, far worse. This guy is way better.
Daniel Rodriguez (1 month ago)
The video was actually good and short tbh, any clickbaiter would have make this video 13mins longer, asking for likes, subs and shares in the firsts 3-4mins while showing off his gameplay... This video was great tbh.
Jeremy Williams (1 month ago)
FaZe Sweg I actually thought he was brief and to the point he just had to explain how the glider has the same falling speed with or without moving forward that would have throw a bunch of people off
lilkrayziepimp (1 month ago)
They don't kn o nothing once ur chute opens angle ur camera at the ground a lil bit then glide forward for like 4sec then glide back a couple secs then forward again and ull b on ground

Juggaloturtle 420 (1 month ago)
But see the real question is how are some people not deploying until they’re like 20 meters above a building I’ve seen some people not pullout their glider till they’ve basically hit the floor already
That Guy (30 days ago)
No, it is a visual glitch.
Andrew Markhus (1 month ago)
they might find a lower place to deplpy their gliders
That Guy (1 month ago)
As multiple people already said, the final answer is that it is a visual glitch. Once you look at the person you see them pull their glider, even if they already had it out before.

Jumping perpendicular to the location on map to the path of the bus is the shortest distance. Hope people figure that out.
Michael (1 month ago)
I used to do this, but it is not optimal if youre trying to LAND there first. Because you glide, people who jump earlier can land first. For POIs reasonably close to the bus, you wanna fly down (along a path perpendicular to the bus path) to a spot on the ground BEFORE your poi, and glide in. You will land before the people who waited till the bus was perpendicular to the actual POI.
Boshua Borman (1 month ago)
Alec is correct, except for very long glides
Alec Winkelman (1 month ago)
Nah thats good for other games but you can actually jump earlier and get there faster than jumping perpendicular

At 2:22 the ocean now doesn’t work, you land last if you go to the ocean bcs you took more time to go off to the side Edit: also the other guy landed first because the one guy dive bombed rather than a normal landing
This is a really dumb comment written to seem smart
Miniweat (1 month ago)
Michael (1 month ago)
Depends how far you are from the ocean. In most cases, ocean is better because the height difference saves a lot of time. If you have to travel an extra few seconds to get there, then it's not worth it.
Danny (1 month ago)
Random YT no you dont, it takes like 2 seconds longer to glide but you pull the glider out later

What about gliding backwards?
tabundo001 (1 month ago)
In terms of going down to the ground it is the same speed, but in terms of going forwards it makes you slower. I realized it cause i used to look back at the enemies behind me while pressing S but they kept flying past me, so it is only okay if you are landing close to were you jumped off, if you need to cover long distances it will screw you up.
