In Fortnite: Battle Royale, you have to learn how to build well to win! It is necessary to be quick 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 the best buildings and do well in Fortnite.

Pick up materials

There are two ways to pick up the materials. Either you take the material from other players' corpses or you have to search the map. When using a pickaxe to break a certain object, it is necessary to do it as soon as possible, as the noise will show your position to your enemies. The quickest way to do this is to hit the blue circle that appears on the target to destroy. The tougher the object, the more hits it will take to destroy it. There are three types of building materials:


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 best for collecting wood.

Brick / Clay / Stone

These materials are not as common as wood, but they are much more resistant. The brick is good to have as an emergency for your fortifications if there is no metal available, as it is not effective against explosives. The best objects to pick up these materials are brick walls, chimneys and rocks.


This material is best for protection against damage. Metal constructions are able to stop rocket launchers and are perfect for use in the final stage 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 intelligently, you can reach originally inaccessible places by building stairs or bridges. Just be careful not to overexpose yourself while going through them. In addition, while you explore, chances are good that other players will find you. So, it is necessary to know how to take advantage of the construction of emergency walls or ramps to better position yourself and defend yourself in combat situations.


Building a wall quickly can mean saving your life if a fight starts suddenly. Select the wall in the construction menu and the material you want to use. That way, as soon as you hear a shot, you can immediately start building your interim defense. You must always be ready to place a wall as quickly as possible to absorb the bullets while fleeing or to gain cover while shooting back.


Any Fortnite: Battle Royale player must know how to quickly build a ramp. This will allow you to be covered by the building and gain a height advantage over the enemy. Hide behind the ramp to heal or recharge and show up just to shoot.

Final fortifications

Later on in the match, you will have to build a fort. The goal is to gain enough height to get 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 are forced to change positions. The ideal is to build a simple but effective structure.

Tower 1x1

This structure consists of four walls forming a square with a ladder in the center. This is the most basic tower and allows you to just check the area in front of the stairs. Therefore, it should be used only 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 walls with a ladder in the center. However, it offers a broader 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 time. Depending on your resources, your skill and the time available, you can build huge towers, with details like doors and windows, set traps and more. Your imagination is the limit!
