Fortnite is a battle royale game that tests players to their limits by exposing them in a fight for survival. Players need to hone their fighting and scavenging skills to gain an upper hand against their opponents. While a hands-on approach is more feasible when it comes to honing your in-game skills in Fortnite, we must not deny the importance of spectatorial learning. In this guide, we will discuss how to spectate online matches among your friends in Fortnite
Rather than often spectating, gamers help us discover strategies that normally wouldn’t have occurred. Once we discover new strategies and precise maneuvers, we can try them out in the Creative mode or implement them in real-time matches. Upgrading skills is the only way players can move up the leaderboard in competitive gaming, and spectating matches is just part of the lesson.
How to spectate your friends in Fortnite
Fortnite had to remove the Watch Game feature to prevent what is commonly known as stream sniping, where a spectator watching the streamer on a separate screen can reveal their location to a friend providing them an unfair advantage and consequently bringing down the spirit of the game.
The only way you can spectate your friend in Fortnite is to be in their lobby. Once you are in their lobby you have to wait for a window of 30 seconds, because it is not possible to spectate what’s going on in the battle bus. After 30 seconds, follow your friend around and watch them take on their opponent until the end of the game.
How to spectate stranger matches in Fortnite
With the removal of the Watch Game feature, players cannot spectate a stranger, they might have played with previously. However, there is an in-game feature that lets players spectate an opponent who has eliminated them in the game.
If the player you are spectating dies, the camera will shift to the other player following the same logic indefinitely until the end of the game. After your elimination, spectate the turn of events to learn the dos and don’ts that will lead you to your Victory Royale.
