If you are a viewer of some of the pro Fortnite players like Shroud, Ninja, Myth etc, you must have heard about the word “Scrim”. If you know about Scrim then its really great but a lot players dont know what exactly Scrims are and how to join Pro scrims.
Don’t be confused, I will give you all the details about some of the Pro Scrim Discord server as well Pro snipes.
Also, We have complied a list of Fortnite pro snipes and Fortnite pro scrims Discord servers, often known as ProCord. And these servers will allow you to play with like-minded players and improve your Fortnite skills.
So, Lets get started!
Scrim is the shortened word for “scrimmage”, which usually means the teams will play against other pro Fortnite players to practice. So, In simple words its basically a matching of players for practice.
Since, there is no matchmaking system in Fortnite, the players who wants to practice together has to join a Scrim.
To join a scrim discord server, there are two ways, Firstly through sniping and Secondly by having a Matchmaking key. Though most of the Fortnite servers are open to everyone, some require a minimum K/D ratio(Kill/Death). This ratio is generally 2 which is easily achievable by most of the players but it still prevents newbies from getting screwed by the pro players.
Fortnite scrims are available in various formats i.e. Solo scrims, Duo scrims and Squad scrims.
When all the players who has to practice together, join the same server at the same time, it is called a Snipe.
The players will go to the same server and one of the player will start the countdown and they will all search for the game at the same time. This method does not guarantee if all the players will be in the same server or not but most of the time this technique works. 😉
So coming back to the second way of joining a snipe i.e. with a Custom Matchmaking Key.
What are Fortnite pro scrims?
Talking about Fortnite, a pro scrim is the same as described above. A pro scrim usually consists of professional players who practice Fortnite together.
