Pick a spot and aim for it from the word go

First, you need to pick a location you want to land and focus on it early to avoid unnecessary adjustments when in the air. When you decide to jump from the bus, do not jump directly above the spot as you will miss it. Always steer in the direction you chose from the word go. This will reduce the number of seconds you spend falling off course. Every single second matters

Don’t deploy your chute the moment you see the prompt

Don’t deploy your parachute even if you see the prompt. Let the game auto deploy your chute. It does this at the last possible moment. This will buy you some extra speed minutes assuming that some opponents deploy sooner than you do.

Jump off the bus at the opportune moment

After picking your location landing faster in Fortnite is a matter of timing and jumping off at the most opportune moment. Wait until you are almost above your spot then jump. After this, you can use the control keys to enter a steep faster dive hence reducing time spent floating in the air on your parachute before hitting the ground


Avoid elevated terrain

The important thing to remember when you want to stick the landing is to avoid hills, elevated terrains or mounds because they will cause your parachute to deploy sooner than you’d think

Aim for lower altitude areas

Once the game detects that you are closing on the ground and it automatically deploys the parachute. To descend faster in Fortnite you need to aim for patches of land with a lower altitude so that you can delay chute deployment as much as possible.

Tilt your body to be at an angle

You will know you are going fast enough when your body is at roughly 45-degree angle to the area. A steep dive increases your falling speed as opposed to a leveled drop.

Press up, not down when the glider deploys

Once the glider is out, you are officially at a small distance away from your landing area and from here to speed up the landing process you have to press up again. When you press down it slow down your accurate landing

Practice again and again

Practice is important when you want to know how to parachute faster in Fortnite. As you keep on practicing you will get better at judging how far initially you need to dive off the Battle Bus in order to get to the specific location on the game
