It will give you two advantages: The wall will defend you from upcoming attacks for a few seconds and the wall will also hide your current location. So, you have some time to cover yourself.

Step 2: Fortnite Offensive Play

You can see your enemy from below, so aim in the direction of the enemy and start shooting at that time the wall is almost demolished. Start shooting and it will destroy your wall and eliminate the enemy as well. But keep one thing in mind: the ammo. Do not use too many ammo to destroy the wall. Hopefully the enemy will not expect this type of counter-attack and it will amaze him. If you have limited ammo and don’t want to waste it on the wall then don’t shoot the wall just point in the direction of the enemy, wait for the enemy to destroy the wall and then shoot.Fortnite Battle Royale Counter Attack

The stairs you have built for you offensive play are going to help you now. If you have a friend with you in the Fort then it is going to be a big surprise for your enemy.Fortnite Battle Royale Firendly Fire When you realize an enemy is shooting at your wall and is out of ammo and has to reload, then quickly get into a good position and eliminate that noob! But if you think your enemy is smart and not wasting his ammo than tell your friend to get into a benefiting position and attack at the same time. Having two or more targets will panic the enemy and he will miss a few shots for sure. The rest is upon your aiming skills! 😉

Essential Tips to defend your Fortnite Fort:

Before moving out offensively, try to find out how many enemies are near, and oif you have enough skills to kill an enemy or not. You have to analyze the whole situation before proceeding. Everyone is good at something, let the fight happend for your favors, move the enemy into a position where you want him to be!

  • No Shame In-Running:
    The main goal in Fortnite is to survive so it does not matter if you run away from an enemy or eliminate him, you don’t have to feel shame when running. If you think more than one enemy is coming towards your Fort or you cannot handle an enemy then its simple: Jump from the Fort and run.
  • Analyze the gun of the Enemy:
    You have to analyze what type of weapon your enemy is using: If you have bad luck and your enemy is holding a rocket launcher then just jump from the Fort. If he has a rifle then try to go for a long range fight, if he has a shotgun then do not let the enemy come near to your Fort and avoid the close-range fight.
  • Enough Equipment:
    If you are planning to fight back then before fighting kindly pay attention to your inventory. Check if you have enough equipment left to eliminate the enemy or not. If you have only enough for one, then just take him down and run afterwards. Note: You also have to pay attention to the building resources as well because in most of the stand your ground situations you have to use a lot of resources.
  • Enough Shield And Healing Items:
    In a fight, most of the times both sides face some damage so before playing offensive you should have some healing and shield items in your bag pack. Because if somehow something went wrong these items will save your life!
