Ninja Thinks Turbo Building Setting in Fortnite Battle Royale is Broken

Top Fortnite streamer Tyler “Ninja” Blevins has seemingly acknowledged a major fault with the game’s building mechanics, specifically the setting “turbo building”.

One of the most central components to Fortnite is building, and being a skilled builder often separates the good players from the bad.

Because of how frequent building became and used as instant cover, developers Epic Games added a number of settings to improve the mechanics and allow for smoother builds.

The setting ‘turbo building’ was added back in February 2018, as well as other improvements such as ‘auto-material change’ and ‘building through stuff’.

Turbo building quickly became the default for many players across platforms, as it was no longer necessary to repeatedly press the build button, rather holding it down would continue the build.

“Turbo Building” allows you to hold down primary fire and continuously place the selected building piece (Toggled in the Game options). Now you can “paint” building pieces into the world quickly. This will be very useful for defensively building walls around you and sprinting up ramps while building them simultaneously.

However, at some point during recent updates to the game, some players have reported issues with turbo building, seemingly not placing the build when holding down the button/key.

And it seems even Ninja himself has now acknowledged the issue, in this clip taken from his live stream.

With constant updates to the game on a weekly basis, small glitches and issues are known to have cropped up previously so it is possible that an accidental change has been made to the turbo building setting.

The Fortnite development team are usually quick to resolve these issue, and with Ninja highlighting the problem on his platform Epic Games will no doubt be aware of players’ complaints.

Fortnite’s Marvel-themed Season 4 takeover is almost winding down, but there’s still plenty of opportunities to grab some last-minute XP boosts with our guide on the Week 10 challenges.

Season 4 of Fortnite has seen tons of new content over the weeks. On top of the ample supply of cosmetic unlocks, Epic has deployed everything from new abilities to secret challenges.

With the ongoing storyline teasing major changes each passing update, time is of the essence to get everything done before we reached Season 5. Once the rare items are gone from the game, there’s no chance at claiming them anytime in the future.

So if you’re trying to make every minute count and get the most of your experience gains, weekly challenges are for you.

Things couldn’t be simpler this time around and we’ve got you covered with everything there is to know about the week 10 objectives.

You’ll need to prioritizing vehicles early on to tick the latest challenges off your list.

First up, all of the usual tasks are listed once again. You’ll need to search some chests, find some quick kills, and collect various resources. These can all be smashed out in the blink of an eye without any real difficulty.

Vehicles will be a big priority over the next few days as there are three unique challenges to tick off. One will have you racing from The Fortilla to The Authority in under four minutes. Meanwhile, the other simply asks you to stay in a vehicle for a long period of time and travel the map.

Arguably the most difficult of the vehicle-specific challenges, you’ll need to eliminate a few enemies with them. This means you may have to catch some opposing players by surprise. Be on the lookout for explosives that could end your run before it really begins.

You can blitz through a handful of these activities at the same time but others require a more focused effort. Below is the full list of challenges for the latest week in Fortnite.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 10 Challenges

  • Search Chests at Upstate New York
  • Eliminations at Lazy Lake
  • Collect Metal from Slurpy Swamp
  • Catch fish at Heart Lake
  • Eliminate opponents by hitting them with vehicles
  • Drive a boat from The Fortilla to The Authority in less than 4 minutes
  • Ride 20,000 meters in a vehicle
  • Deal damage to opponents at Sentinel Graveyard

Expect the Sentinel Graveyard to be a hot drop for the next week.

You’ve still got a few weeks left to finish up the Season 4 Battle Pass. Though you may want to start rushing through not only these weekly tasks, but the secret challenges too. 

Every scrap of XP will help as you look to unlock the final rewards in the Marvel-centric update.
