Fortnite battles can sometimes lead to the opponent housing themselves in a 1x1 that can be a headache to deal with, but FaZe Clan’s Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has an insane way of ending those stalemates.
Ever since Fortnite Battle Royale launched in September 2017, players have been constantly finding new ways to improve their building kills and coming up with ingenious methods for taking advantages in numerous scenarios.
While 1x1 builds are sometimes seen as a solid defense from attackers, Fortnite pro Tfue has shown off a new way of easily overwhelming unwary players.
While replacing enemy walls is a common tactic used when faced with someone in a 1x1, the manner in which Tfue managed to do it in this particular instance was incredibly crafty.
He jumped down to meet his opponent’s elevation and took a whack at the Wall with his Axe, revealing a critical hit indicator. TFue then created space by retreating above his Ramp and quickly swinging at the indicator.
This let him destroy the Wall through his Ramp, safely exposing his opponent. A quick Wall replace and edit later netted him an easy kill.

The technique can be incredibly useful for flushing out players that routinely look to retreat into a defensive hut. It should be noted, however, that the move also risks the opponent taking a free shot if the trick isn’t done quick enough.
With a bit of practice, though, TFue's ingenious trick could be a valuable trick to have during build fights.
