Fortnite Snipes (Scrims)


Fortnite Scrim Snipes work by coordinating participants to synchronize their ready-up in an effort to be matched into the same round. It isn’t always 100% accurate, but following the steps below will greatly increase your chance of being matched into higher-quality matches than the standard matchmaking system.
1. Make sure you’re joining in your region and on your platform. If you haven’t already made your designations in #welcome , be sure to do so. Fortnite will automatically place you into the region that best serves you, but you can also manually set your region in-game if you are unsure, or want to attempt to participate in another region’s scrims.
2. React to matches you want to participate in. Scrims are held every hour, with notifications for upcoming matches posted 30 minutes prior. To participate in a scrim, react to these 30-minute reminders in order to be mentioned in the 2-minute warning. This warning will include your countdown timer which you will use to sync up with the rest of the participants.
3. Before the match starts, be sure to Load your match. To do this, select your game type (SOLO, DUOS, SQUADS) and hit Play, and then as soon as Loading content (100%) is reached, hit Cancel and stay in the matchmaking lobby. This will preload your content and speed up the process for the next time you hit Play in the current session. Doing this will greatly increase your chances of being grouped with the rest of the participants.
