In Fortnite: Battle Royale, you have to learn to build well to win! It is necessary to be fast and tactical in the construction and also to know how to manage your resources.

Check out this guide to learn how to take advantage of best buildings and do well in Fortnite.

pick up materials

There are two ways to get materials. Either you get material from the corpses of other players or you have to search the map.



When using a pickaxe to break a certain object, it is necessary to do so as quickly as possible, as the noise will show your position to your enemies. The fastest way to do this is hitting the blue circle that appears on the target to destroy. The stronger the object, the more hits it will take to destroy it.

There are three types of building materials:

Madeira Island

The most common material, but also the least resistant. You should only use wood to build stairs and bridges while exploring. The thickest and tallest trees are the best for gathering wood.

Brick/clay/stone

These materials are not as common as wood, but they are much stronger. Brick is good to have as an emergency for your fortifications if you don't have metal available, as it is not effective against explosives. The best objects to pick up these materials are brick walls, chimneys and rocks.

Metal

This material is the best for protection from damage. Buildings made of metal can stop rocket launcher attacks and are perfect to use in the final phase of the game. Remove metal from vehicles found in cities and towns. Ideally, you should always have around 300-400 metal units with you to quickly repair your damaged fortifications.



emergency construction

Buildings are a fundamental part of Fortnite: Battle Royale. Using them wisely you can arrive in originally inaccessible places, building stairs or bridges. Just be careful not to overexpose yourself as you walk through them.

Also, as you explore, there are high chances that other players will find you. Therefore, it is necessary to know how to take advantage of the construction of walls or emergency ramps to better position yourself and defend yourself in a combat situation.

Paredes

Building a wall quickly can mean saving your life if a fight starts suddenly. Select the wall in the build menu and the material you want to use. That way, as soon as you hear a shot, you can immediately start building its provisional defence.

You must always be ready to put up a wall as quickly as possible. to absorb the bullets while fleeing or to gain cover while firing back.

Ramps

Any Fortnite: Battle Royale player needs to know how to quickly build a ramp. This will allow you get covered by construction and gain height advantage over the enemy.

Hide behind the ramp to heal or reload and appear only to fire.

final fortifications

Later in the game, you'll have to build a fort. The objective is to gain enough height to have a wider view of the map and catch your enemies from a distance. Since the eye of the storm is always moving, you won't have much time before you're forced to change your position. The ideal is to build a simple but effective structure.



Tower 1x1

This structure consists of four walls forming a square with a staircase in the center. This is the most basic tower and allows you to just check out the zone in front of the stairs. Therefore, it should only be used as a temporary solution. If the enemy is attacking with a grenade launcher, it is vital that you also build a roof to protect yourself.


Tower 1x2

This tower also consists of four rectangular-shaped walls with a staircase in the center. However, it offers a wider view of the entire surrounding area. This is the tower that will offer more comfort and protection, but it needs more materials than the 1x1. Therefore, you should try to manage your resources in the best way, depending on the situation at the moment.

Depending on your resources, your skill and the time available, you can build huge towers, with details like doors and windows, placing traps and much more. Your imagination is the limit!
