With the game being the global sensation that it is, there's a lot to learn about not only getting that all-important "Victory Royale", but also the changes to the map as the seasons progress, and the challenges you can seek to complete.

Disco Domination Rules

This mode tasks two teams of 50 players each to take over dance mats with disco balls to score points. It's a variant on the classic Domination game mode found in other games, but there are a couple of key differences.

Firstly, the points disappear when the storm is about to close in, meaning you'll need to capture points again once they reappear. Taking over

Best Strategies, How to win

Avoid the central mound with the airbase on it like the plague. This is where the circle is moving into and is also where all the players congregate to farm skill-based tasks for challenges. If you're serious about winning the game, don't go near it. This also plays into how the game itself will resolve as most of the players will be distracted with their kill counts and other skill challenges, so opposition will be minimal.

For those that are looking to win the game though, note that you can't build on the dance floor and that you are vulnerable while dancing. If you have collected lots of materials, you can build outside the dance floor to provide some cover, but having someone spot you while dancing is the best way to avoid any untimely deaths.

The dance floors will always spawn in the same places each match, usually towards the ring where the storm would be heading towards next. You can anticipate this by simply waiting a little bit further in. Each stage also increases the rate at which the score ticks, up to a total of three times. If the game is still going after this point, the respawn rule becomes null and void, meaning death is permanent in the match. It will end eventually, even for the players in the centre racking up their kills.

Other than that, the same general tips will apply for any other Battle Royale game in Fortnite. You can check out tips for Fortnite vehicles, as well as learn how to maintain your health in our Fortnite healing items guide.
