Building in Fortnite

Basics of Fortnite

Steven McDermott, Writer

As you may know, you always have a pickaxe in your inventory. Well you use that pickaxe to break things for materials. You can also use the materials to build. You may also use the materials to upgrade your weapons.


If you turn on ‘turbo building’ it will do what it says it does. To build straight up, you’ll have to crank. Directions on how to crank list.

  1. Place a wall
  2. Place a ramp in front of the wall
  3. Place walls all around you
  4. Jump and then quickly place a floor then a ramp under you
  5. Repeat directions, 3 and 4, until you want to stop building
