Fortnite building is a skill that's worth learning if you want to compete at the higher levels of the game. The building doesn't have to always be used for defense, it can be used to get to high places to reach rare loot - such as inside the roof of a building - or to scout the map. You can also use the building as an offensive tactic. Once you get good enough at building structures quickly, you can box your opponents in by building four walls and a ceiling around them. 

 

There are three types of materials which can then be used to build, with each type of material having its own separate build time and health:

Wood: five-second build time per panel, starting health at 100, has 200 health

Stone: 12-second build time per panel, starting health at 90, has 300 health

Metal: 20-second build time per panel, starting health at 80, has 400 health

 

Destroying things like brick walls, trees, rocks, and cars will get you the respective material. You can also find them wherever you find loot - such as out in the open or in chests. The fastest way to accumulate loot in a match is by killing other players, allowing you to collect their materials when you run over their dropped items.

 

It's a good idea to learn what materials work best in different situations and build to your advantage. For example, wooden structures are the quickest to construct but are the weakest against enemy fire so it wouldn't be wise to use it over a stronger material when you're in a final circle, and using metal during the early stages of a match when you're constantly shifting due to circle shrinkage would just be a waste.

 

                                    

 

Be careful, though, as the longer the build time, the bigger the window for opponents to shoot down your panels so if you're engaged in a small one-on-one battle, we recommend that you use wood to build a small defense system as it's quicker to replace.

 

Use stone and metal to build a larger fort during the later stages of the game so you've got somewhere that's more reinforced to camp out in, plus being higher up increases your chance of landing deadly headshots. Just remember to reinforce the base of any high towers you build as opponents will often try and topple your structure from the bottom up.

 

Once you're familiar with building materials and types, you're ready to construct yourself some actual structures. Whilst you can build almost anything you can think of in the game, it pays to know some specific structures and builds that give you the edge in certain situations.

 

Panic wall

You'll probably encounter opponents who scramble to throw up the famous 'panic wall' during combat encounters several times throughout a single match. Depending on build material. they're great for getting a couple of extra seconds to hide so that you can either reload, heal up or run in the opposite direction during a fight. To build one, simply construct a standard wall.

 

Panic ramp

Similar to panic walls in that players often quickly build them during close-combat, panic ramps are fantastic for getting up higher than your opponent and implementing a surprise attack by dropping down on top of them.

 

Due to the slope, you can dip in and out of enemy sights by moving up and down the ramp, giving you added protection. If your foe is further away, panic ramps also make for an excellent sniping spot due to the added height. You can construct one by building three standard walls in an upside-down U shape and then placing a set of standard stairs between them.

 

V-shaped ramp

V-shaped ramps are similar to panic ramps except they consist of two sets of stairs instead of one, making the 'V' shape. They're best placed at the very top of a tower as you can move up and down the ramps on either side as needed and are a great vantage spot to look out and to snipe from. Build one by constructing two panic ramps opposite each other.

 

Sniper tower

If you've got a good aim, building a sniper tower will be a big advantage to you during a game's final circles as you can camp out at the top of one and pick far away players off with headshots. Construct one by boxing yourself in with four standard walls (or more if you want a bigger space), then build a set of standard stairs and move up higher. Rinse and repeat. Make sure to build a V-shaped ramp at the top if you want to snipe.

 

If you're more confident in your building abilities, you can even swap one of the bottom standard walls for a wall with a door and then place a trap in there, using the door to lure in unsuspecting players expecting to sneak in and kill you. Just remember to reinforce towers with stronger building materials at the bottom to lessen the chances of it being shot down and you fall to your death.

 

Healing room

Regardless of your ability, healing rooms should be something you incorporate into your play style as they give you an extra line of defense if you can't find a place to hide and heal up. To build one, surround yourself with four standard walls and then throw a roof over the top. They're pretty obvious to opponents and they'll more than likely try and shoot it down if they see one but at least you'll have nabbed yourself a few extra seconds to recover your health, improving your chances of survival.

 

Fortnite Traps and other objects explained

Whilst building different structures are incredibly enjoyable in itself, adding objects such as traps to them cranks up the fun meter by 1000, especially when they result in silly and surprising.

 

Like other loot, objects and traps can be found all over the map, whether it's on the floor, in loot chests and llamas or in supply drops.

 

Launch Pad

The Launch Pad is an Epic rarity item that hurls you high into the air, allowing you to use your Glider to fly away quickly and easily from enemy attacks or to outrun the storm. In order to deploy the pad, you must place down a floor tile first - make sure you install it away from any trees or buildings that could obstruct your jump.

 

You can't move or pick it back up again once it's been planted and has unlimited uses meaning your opponents can use it too, so make sure you're strategic with its placement to avoid being followed and killed. If you've built a sniper tower, using a Launch Pad can be a great way to escape quickly into the air if it's being sabotaged by another player.

 

Damage Trap

There used to be three types of the trap in the game: the Wall Zapper, Ceiling Zapper and the Retractable Floor Spikes, but they were removed and replaced with the Damage Trap, an Uncommon item which incorporates all three traps into one. Because of this, it switches its placement automatically between wall, floor and ceiling tiles.

 

The best way to use it is to place it somewhere such as inside the room of a house or the bottom of a fort, hoping an unsuspecting foe will accidentally stumble across it and meet their demise but more skilled players can actively box an enemy in with their own structure and place the trap with the enemy still inside for an easy kill.

 

Bouncer trap

The Bouncer Trap is an infinite-use Rare item used mainly by the player themselves to launch off of high places such as mountains or sniper towers as it negates fall damage. Whilst it doesn't deal any damage when stepped on, it can be used as an aid to kill enemy players when placed strategically as it can send them flying into Damage Traps or high enough into the air to get sniped by either you or other opponents.

 

Cozy Campfire

The Cozy Campfire is a one-use Rare "trap" used to heal up any surrounding players at a rate of 2HP per second for 25 seconds. Whilst it isn't a damage-dealing item, it's useful when combined with a healing room structure if you either don't have any other healing items or multiple teammates need to recover health quickly.

 

Try and save it for the later circles where loot is more barren as there's nothing worse than running out of recovery items late in the game, especially if you're in a team and nobody has anything.

 

How to build specific walls, floors, stairs, and roofs in Fortnite

If you want more advanced, specific types of structures, you can 'Edit' the wall or floor you are currently blueprinting, giving you a tile grid which you can then edit to create different structure types: walls and stairs consist of six squares (3x3) and roofs and floors contain four squares (2x2). By removing tiles, you can manipulate the original structure into different forms.

V-shaped ramp

V-shaped ramps are similar to panic ramps except they consist of two sets of stairs instead of one, making the 'V' shape. They're best placed at the very top of a tower as you can move up and down the ramps on either side as needed and are a great vantage spot to look out and to snipe from.
