Playstyle Royale: You can only build

Fortnite_playstyle_header

This is Playstyle Royale, where I head into… wait. This isn’t the (long neglected) series you all know and love where I play PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds while adhering to arbitrary rules. This is that, but in Fortnite.

Fittingly, the rules this week say I can’t use a weapon until I’ve made it into the final two. My only defence? Building.

As usual, I’ve given myself five attempts. I probably should have written ‘unless’ rather than ‘until’, but I’m an optimist at heart. The intro stands: let’s do this!

Playstyle Royale: Desert Sightseeing

This is Playstyle Royale, where I head into Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds and try to win my chicken dinner while adhering to arbitrary rules. It’s been a while and the desert map hasn’t yet received the Playstyle treatment, so I thought it’d be nice to kick off this year with some sightseeing.

As a sightseer, each round I’ll try to visit four locations I’ve deemed touristy enough to deserve my attention, and I’m forbidden to loot anywhere else. As usual, I’ve got five attempts before I have to call it quits.

Playstyle Royale: Dump The Evidence

This is Playstyle Royale, where I head into Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds and try to win my chicken dinner while adhering to arbitrary rules. This week, I’m going with Godwhacker’s excellent suggestion in the comments from last time:

“Dump the Evidence”.

You’re allowed one kill with a weapon, but then it must be dropped, in order to outfox the Hampshire Constabulary who are fast catching up with you and your trail of murder. You can keep the usual four weapons in your inventory and switch between them, but each gun and any attachments must be disposed of after it’s been used, ideally somewhere it can’t be found easily. I’m also going to embrace my role and try to take out every player I see – I wouldn’t be much of a hunter if I didn’t. As usual, I’ve got five tries to reach the number one spot. Let’s get to it!

Playstyle Royale: Newb School

This is Playstyle Royale, where I head into Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds and try to win my chicken dinner while adhering to arbitrary rules. Tonight, I’m hoping to share my supper with RPS’s very own Alec Meer – who has never played the game before.

As if that didn’t make things hard enough, this week’s rule is that Alec is the only one who can use his weapon.

That means that this week you get two after-action reports, with my version on the first page and Alec’s on the second.

Playstyle Royale: You can only use smoke and stun grenades

This is Playstyle Royale, where I head into Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds and try to win my chicken dinner while adhering to arbitrary rules. This week’s rule comes from Balnakor, who suggested this in the comments from last time:

“Conflict avoidance: loot up how you like, but you can’t use any weapon apart from smoke/stun grenades until you are in the last two.”

For added tension, I’m only giving myself five attempts. It’s going to be a tough one.

Playstyle Royale: You must go for every crate you see

Crate header

This is Playstyle Royale, where I head into Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds [official site] and try to win my chicken dinner while adhering to arbitrary rules. This week, I must hunt down every air drop I see.

Crates are a game player’s best friend. I love cracking them open and sucking out their loot-containing innards. The crates in Plunkbat offer even juicer innards than most, and contain weapons that can’t be found anywhere else in the game. They’re also death traps.
