Tips & Tricks for Beginners of Fortnite’s The Getaway High Stakes LTM
Communication Is Key
If there’s one thing we’ve already learned from jumping into Fortnite’s High Stakes game mode, it’s that communication is of paramount importance here. If you thought that playing Fortnite’s standard Squads was difficult without speaking to your teammates, this is on a whole other level.
Because High Stakes has a bit more going on than simply being the last team standing, you need to get a bit more tactical. You all want to land together, you want to call out enemies and stay alive, and you want to make sure you’re all running and gunning for the same vault to get that all-important jewel.
Things only get worse once you’ve got the jewel, with the carrier running 10 percent slower than usual, even if they do get a shield and health regen buff in the process.
Ensuring you’re communicating at all times in High Stakes means you can protect one another in times of dire need, or all wail on the jewel carrier on an opponent’s team all at once to stop them from getting away.
We strongly advise only playing The Getaway’s High Stakes mode with friends, or at least with people you can talk to easily on the mic. Otherwise, it’s just a recipe for disaster.
