Managing your inventory in Fortnite can be a crucial part of survival, both choosing the right weapons and making sure you can easily navigate between your items.
If you manage to get some kills or are lucky enough to find lots of loot you will likely need to drop some of your items to make space for better ones.
Fortnite Battle Royale currently has over 25 different items in the game, and many of the weapons range in rarity which can affect their statistics and how useful they are in battle.
How to drop items in Fortnite
Dropping weapons you don’t want or wish to share with teammates doesn’t seem completely obvious at first.
To drop a weapon you need to go into your inventory which you open by pressing ‘I’ on your keyboard, the the down button on the PS4 or Xbox one controller.
On the inventory menu you will be able to view your weapons, ammo and resources, it is also the menu that will allow you to choose which weapons you want to drop.
The bottom right corner of the screen will tell you which button you need to press to drop an item, which is typically X for PC, square for PS4 and X for Xbox One.
Then you just need to press the drop button when hovering over the weapon or ammo that you want to get rid of.
Alternatively, if you have a full inventory, you will automatically drop the item you are holding if you try to pick up something else.
