A clever Fortnite fan has found a new way to kill enemies who build a ramp over your head when you enter into a build battle.

The technique, uploaded to Reddit by a user named ‘VanguardCR’, is extremely easy to perform, and doesn’t even require a lot of materials to do.

The strategy works best when an opposing player is building a ramp over your head, but could be used in other situations, depending on how close you are to an enemy who is trying to get the higher ground over you.

When an enemy builds a ramp over your head, you will need to build up so you are only one level below them, allowing you to place a structure on top of them – through their own ramp.


Then, simply place a pyramid piece on the top of their ramp, meaning they are no longer able to build past that point, and are essentially trapped on the ramp they were on.

All that’s left to do then is to use the new Glider re-deploy system to jump off of your ramp, and swing around onto theirs, landing behind them and giving you an easy elimination.

Fortnite fans who watched this technique are clearly impressed by it, claiming that it will be a new meta in the game, and something that players all over the map will soon start utilizing as a way to counter enemy builds.


The glider re-deploy portion of the strategy can still be used to jump around onto enemy builds when they have placed a floor to stop you from building the cone, but it does mean that your enemy won’t be trapped, and will still be able to build away and escape.
