How to counter a player in a 1×1 turtle in Fortnite Battle Royale

A clever player has demonstrated a way to counter players who use the 1×1 turtling technique in Fortnite Battle Royale.

Turtling is when a player builds a square box, generally one wall wide with a roof, and hides in it while they attempt to heal or reload their weapons.

YouTuber MarcosGonzalezTV explains that usually when players come across enemies who have boxed themselves up, they will typically start shooting out one of the walls in an attempt to get at their enemy.

When this happens, enemy players will simply build a ramp, and start rebuilding the wall through the ramp at high speed, meaning the offensive player is unable to breach the box and attack.

Gonzalez, however, has found a clever trick that stops enemy players from being able to build the ramp in the first place. By walking up to the wall, players are able to place a pyramid piece down on the floor of the box, immediately blocking the space for a ramp. 

All players need to do then is break down the wall and take on their adversary, with their enemy left defenseless and unable to build to protect themselves.

Since Fortnite’s release in 2017, building has become a hugely important part of the game. Fans of the popular battle royale spend hours practising and perfecting their building strategy as they attempt to get an upper hand over opponents.
