Making the most of winning close quarters fights using consistent and meaningful builds is one of the main factors in Fortnite to securing a Victory Royale.

Wall replace battles are high-pressured, tense situations in which a single mistake or mistimed build could mean exposing oneself to a killshot.

YouTuber ‘ImSpeedyGonzalez’ put together a video to demonstrate the minute changes anyone can make to their game to overcome critical wall-replace battles that could be the difference to winning engagements.

Epic GamesIt doesn’t matter how high a build is, if the enemy is one wall away.

During wall replace battles, players will oftentimes pickaxe the wall to set up their own wall in order to get the valuable ‘edit’ function to the build.

ImSpeedyGonzalez says that a common mistake he sees players make is “wall replacing by holding down fire/place build [which adds] a 0.15-second delay” to your build.

Instead, he suggests spam clicking your build to avoid the 0.15-second delay and build at a much higher rate of 0.05 seconds.

The workaround to the delay is functional playing with a controller or mouse, but if playing with a mouse, he has another layer to the strategy.

Manually bind your ‘place build’ to the Scroll Wheel Down key and keep scrolling down while tearing down a wall. This is to ensure that the time between the wall coming down and setting up your own is reduced as much as possible.

Fortnite is a multilayered game that can be as competitive as anyone is willing to take it. Practicing these mechanics are the best way of improving your game before the start of Fortnite’s Season 7 that begins December 6.

Epic Games have confirmed that a Fortnitemares Afterlife Party event with J Balvin is set to rock the Main Stage in Party Royale. Here’s what you need to know.

Over the years, as Fortnite has grown more and more in popularity, Epic Games have teamed up with TV shows, movies, and musicians for a number of live events. 

This has included everything from something as simple as a DJ playing a few songs from their living room to showing off new trailer for a Star Wars movie. Though, it’s stretched all the way to Travis Scott having a jaw-dropping concert live event too. 

With Fortnitemares now being live, the next event will involve Colombian artist J Balvin debuting a new song during an ‘Afterlife’ concert. So, here’s everything you need to know. 

What time is the J Balvin event in Fortnite?

Just like a number of other events in Fortnite, there will be an initial showing before a number of encore shows so that everyone has the chance to get involved. 

The initial J Balvin show will get underway on Saturday, October 31st at 9 pm EDT/1 am GMT/6 pm PDT and 2 am CEST. Though, if you miss the live showing, there will be two other showings.

The first replay, according to Epic, will happen a day later on Sunday, November 1st at a much reasonable time for European fans – 1 pm EDT/6 pm BST/10 am PDT and 7 pm CEST. The second replay will be five hours later on the same day. 

How to get J Balvin Party Trooper Fortnite skin

While these events have, sometimes, given all players free rewards, the J Balvin event will be a little different. 

Instead, anyone who owns the Party Trooper skin that attends the Afterlife Party will unlock an exclusive J Balvin style. However, you don’t have to wear the skin to the event to unlock it, you just have to own it.

Where to find the J Balvin event in Fortnite

If you want to watch the event, as we’ve already noted, it’ll happen inside Party Royale. That’s slightly different to the usual Battle Royale and Creative modes. 

To access it, you’ll want to select the Party Royale game mode in the lobby screen and then search when the event goes live in the menus. Be sure to get in early for the live showing as you don’t want to miss out!

  1. Load up Fortnite
  2. Enter the Battle Royale lobby screen but change the playlist to Party Royale
  3. Search for a game and wait
  4. Once inside, head over to the Main Stage area on the east of the island and enjoy!

The Main Stage is where you’ll be able to find the Fortnite music events.

Obviously, you won’t be able to drop in and watch the show until the date and time that Epic has revealed, so don’t try and get involved too early. 

If you manage to get in, though, make sure to enjoy it and get involved with the party.
