About the Author
Read an Excerpt
A few things before we drop in. This book was designed with a single idea in mind: what I wish I had known about gaming when I was starting to get serious about it.
This isn’t really meant to be the kind of book you pick up and read starting on the first page and ending on the last, though you can do that if you want. It’s more like a reference book—an encyclopedia, by me, for gamers like us. It’s a compendium of some of the tips and tricks I’ve collected over the years, arranged in one place so that you can look to it when you need some guidance on the little things or the big ones. Whether you’re brand-new to gaming, or you’re a grizzled veteran, I think you’ll learn something new.
The best place for a book like this is right by your computer or your console. It’s meant to be used, not just read and then put on the shelf. You can look at it when you have questions or feel stuck. Revisit it occasionally to see if you learn something new. Write your own tips or discoveries in the margins, and dog-ear pages you find especially useful. If you ever ask me to sign your copy, I want to see that you’ve really put it to use.
There are a couple content features in here you should know about before you start reading. “Hot Fix!” boxes explain quick ways to address common errors, while boxes marked “Ninja’s Way” are specific illustrations of how I personally handle the challenges that I’ll describe in more abstract terms in the main text. There are also exercises and even a little game. Finally, I’ve added a list of resources at the back that you can check out once you think you’ve exhausted what I’ve written here. There’s only so much you can say in a single book, so I want you to know where you can go when you’re ready to take your game to the next level.
Unlike games, you only get one chance when it comes to books, so I’ve tried to make the wisdom in here as timeless as possible. That means I don’t talk much about how to play specific games. Instead, I talk about gaming. I’ll use Fortnite, Apex Legends, and plenty of other games as examples throughout the book, but most of the content in here is meant to be bigger than any one game. Games come and go, and you’ll have to go with them. But if you pay attention to the lessons in this book, you’ll find that you’re never really starting over. Who knows—maybe you’ll even beat me someday. Or not. That’s up to you.
See You In-Game,

This book taught me a lot about how to use assault rifles, when i started I would aim wrong and my accuracy was bad. but after reading the book i went to school and i really showed my skills. my killstreak was above the roof if it wasnt for ninja I would never be able to get this good thank you Tyler, you taught how to get this victory royale.
Tyler "Ninja" Blevins, I just wanted to thank you for helping me make up my mind during this rough period in my life. I want to kill myself now, so thank you for aiding me in making that decision.
I used this book in hard times in my life. When my parents were fighting and arguing I used this book and its wonderful scripture to help me through these times. I would kneel down and pray to the God Ninja. Ninja is God. I tried to share my religion with most of the Middle East after I graduated college. They tried to cut my hand off. I am a missionary for Ninjaism now and I will be for the rest of my life. I go nowhere without this book. 5 stars.

Somebody once told me the world is gonna roll me I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed She was looking kind of dumb with her finger and her thumb In the shape of an "L" on her forehead Well the years start coming and they don't stop coming Fed to the rules and I hit the ground running Didn't make sense not to live for fun Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb So much to do, so much to see So what's wrong with taking the back streets? You'll never know if you don't go You'll never shine if you don't glow Hey now, you're an all-star, get your game on, go play Hey now, you're a rock star, get the show on, get paid And all that glitters is gold Only shooting stars break the mold It's a cool place and they say it gets colder You're bundled up now, wait till you get older But the meteor men beg to differ Judging by the hole in the satellite picture The ice we skate is getting pretty thin The water's getting warm so you might as well swim My world's on fire, how about yours? That's the way I like it and I never get bored Hey now, you're an all-star, get your game on, go play Hey now, you're a rock star, get the show on, get paid All that glitters is gold Only shooting stars break the mold Hey now, you're an all-star, get your game on, go play Hey now, you're a rock star, get the show, on get paid And all that glitters is gold Only shooting stars Somebody once asked could I spare some change for gas? I need to get myself away from this place I said yep what a concept I could use a little fuel myself And we could all use a little change Well, the years start coming and they don't stop coming Fed to the rules and I hit the ground running Didn't make sense not to live for fun Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb So much to do, so much to see So what's wrong with taking the back streets? You'll never know if you don't go (go!) You'll never shine if you don't glow Hey now, you're an all-star, get your game on, go play Hey now, you're a rock star, get the show on, get paid And all that glitters is gold Only shooting stars break the mold And all that glitters is gold Only shooting stars break the mold
