With the new update making materials more valuable than ever, players will want to apply this tip to save some wood as they cross Loot Lake.

A video from Sam and Aidan of ‘The Gamer Couple’ breaks down the best way for users to get across the water in the center of the map.

Since the developers released update version 4.3.0, the importance of materials has become even more a focal point as most means of gathering them have been nerfed. 

Most users are aware that running through water significantly reduces run speed and can be the difference between making out of the storm and dying as the circle is closing.

This latest tip found its way on to Reddit where interested parties can see a shortened version of the video that demonstrates the method.

By using the tip from ‘The Gamer Couple’ players will save half of the materials and travel at the same speed as if they had built all the way across.

The tip tells users to utilize ramps and jumping to maintain a consistent stride.

A side-by-side view of the two methods proves that gamers can optimize their journey through Loot Lake.

While using a jump pad is ideal for crossing the vast body of water, sometimes that is not an option.
