Fortnite: Fast Building Guide

Hello guys! In this article, I will teach you how to build faster in Fortnite Battle Royale on both PC and Consoles (Xbox and PS4). Wall and ladder building is the key to effective self-defense. These structures may save your life and that’s why you must know how to set them up as quickly as possible. You may be very good at aiming, but if you are a poor builder you will lose.

The first thing you should understand: building technique for PC and consoles is absolutely different! That’s why this guide has 2 parts.

Fast Building on Consoles

When you play on console, the main issue is that you have only one controller. This controller is responsible for everything. In the beginning, all the players had difficulties with the building because the game had terrible controls scheme. Switching between the structures was too slow and players had to use different tricks.

Now the things changed and you have access to Builder Pro setup. That’s the key to the fast building. It has an optimized comfortable button setup. Use Builder Pro and you will be much faster than many of your enemies.

  • If you can’t master fast building with a controller, try to use mouse and keyboard with your console. I know that many of you will say that they are true console players and don’t want to cheat. But this may really be a good alternative for some of you. I have seen a lot of comments telling that switching from controller to keyboard was a good step.

Anyway, the winner is the winner. If you feel that using a keyboard is better for you in this game – don’t hesitate to use it. But there are many cool builders who use a traditional console controller. It’s really possible to master building with a controller.

Fast Building on PC

The default building keyboard controls are not the best. By default, your building keys are F1 – F5 which is not so comfortable to use. But PC players have an advantage: the keyboard has a lot of keys and you can bind different structures to different keys.

If you play on PC I recommend modifying the default layout and rebinding the structures to the other keys. Use your Q, E, F or Z, X, C keys for this. These keys are located close to the main WASD keys and it’s much easier to use them rather than using F1 – F5. For example, you can bind F key for a Wall and a Q key for stairs.

There are also several advanced tips for making your experience even better:

  • Adjust your mouse sensitivity right. If you want to act fast your mouse should be fast too. The sensitivity must be in a comfortable zone. I don’t put any numbers here because every player has his own personal preferences. Just try and find out what works for you the best. But remember that default sensitivity is not always what you really need.
  • Using a gaming mouse with extra keys is much better for building than using a keyboard. If you have a gaming mouse like Razer or any other you can bind Wall and Stairs to the side buttons. In my opinion, this is the fastest and the most comfortable way of building. Your left hand will not leave WASD keys which will allow you to move, while your right hand will be responsible for selecting structures. That’s the fastest way in my opinion.

Doesn’t matter which keyboard layout you select. The key thing is practice. The more you try the better your skill will be. Try different bindings; find what you need and start practicing. Only practice makes perfect!
