Hey what is going on guys, in this video today
we’re gonna be going over a few different advanced tips for close range engagements
in Fortnite. Now, my general thoughts on “advanced tips”
or “advanced techniques”, is that a lot of the time they’re really not all that helpful. Especially some of the crazy advanced building
and high ground techniques I’ve seen in various video. Are they really cool to watch? Absolutely. But a lot of those tips are so advanced that
the average player or even above average player, really has no chance to truly master them. So what I tried to do with the advanced tips
in this video is to definitely make them advanced, but at the same time, try to keep them as
simple as possible. I know that doesn’t really make a TON of sense
when I say it like that, but I think you guys will understand what I mean when you see them. And, I truly believe that even though the
tips are advanced and situational in nature, with a little bit of practice really anyone
could be able to master them. So, without further ado let’s get right into
it. Alright, so i’ve purposely arranged these
tips in order from simplest to most advanced, but I think they’re all pretty close to equal
in that regard anyway. The first tip we’re gonna cover is a really
powerful, relatively simple, and super underused counter for when you get ramped over in any
kind of build fight. What the majority of players will do when
they know they’re about to get ramped over, is try to place a pyramid on top of the opponents
ramp to block them, and then surround them with walls to put them in a box. From there you can either make some kind of
an edit play, or the more common thing people do is try to place traps on the walls. I’m not saying this is a bad technique because
I honestly do it all the time myself. It’s simple, it’s been around forever, and
it’s really effective against the majority of players. But it also does have it’s fair share of downfalls. First off, this techniques has been around
for a while now, so the vast majority of players, and especially good players are gonna know
how to counter it. That means sometimes you’ll go to place your
cone, and you’ll end up getting coned yourself, or you’ll get edited down on, or you’ll just
simply get out-shotgunned if it turns into a point blank fight inside the box. Plus, for the cone and box strategy to be
most effective, you’re gonna need multiple traps, which definitely can be problem especially
early in games. So, not a bad technique by any means, but
there is a decent amount of risk with it. So let me show you guys a clip of another
option that I personally think is just as good if not better. And for all of these clips I’m gonna show
what its gonna look like from your point of view, and also what it’s gonna look like from
the enemy’s point of view….So as you just saw, instead of placing a pyramid to stop
your opponent, and then trying to box them, you simply place a wall to block them from
continuing to ramp up. Your enemy definitely won’t be expecting it,
and it’ll take them a second to calculate their next move once it happens. With that, you should have more than enough
time to easily take high ground which will give you every advantage in the fight. I think it’s a pretty easy technique to execute,
but also incredibly powerful when done correctly. And here’s another quick clip of it. Next up, we have a really powerful advanced
tip for killing an enemy in a 1×1 once you’ve gained control of one of their walls. What most people will do in that situation
is go for a simple window, corner, or top row edit, and then get a shotgun shot off. Again, definitely not a bad idea, and I personally
do that all the time, but there is some risk there. Once you take someones wall, what some players
will do is track you with their shotgun crosshair, and wait for you to open the wall with your
edit. Once you do that, it’s pretty much a 50/50
shotgun fight at that point, which I’m sure we all know can be pretty hit or miss a lot
of the time. So, let me show you guys an interesting little
alternative that I personally use in a lot of situations. Try to pay attention to what happens in the
clip, and I’ll be back in about 25 seconds to explain it…Alright so here’s what happened
there. I started off by making the typical corner
edit that most people would make in that situation. But, I knew that my opponent was gonna be
expecting that, and he was going to shoot as soon as it happened. So after making the edit, I immediately reset
it. What that does is it leaves the wall at right
around 50 health, so when that opponent takes the shotgun shot trying to hit you, he hits
the wall instead and actually ends up breaking it. Then once that happens, you can get a shot
off with nothing in your way before he even has the opportunity to shoot again. And if you don’t kill him with the first shot,
simply place your own wall, and then do a simple edit or repeat that same technique
again. Here’s another good example where I actually
do that technique 3 times in a row. Moving on, we have a cool little advanced
tip for dealing with players who are behind one of your ramps. This probably most commonly happens when you
box someone who you’ve ramped over, but there’s a lot of different ways you’ll find yourself
in this situation. Much like when you take someone’s wall, what
a lot of people will do when you have your ramp between you and them, is they’ll track
you through it with their shotgun and wait for you to make an edit. And I’d say it’s even easier for them to do
that when it’s a ramp compared to a wall, because you’re a lot more limited on the type
of edits you can do. Really the only one that the majority of people
are comfortable with is cutting the ramp in half and then talking the 50/50 shotgun fight. Here’s another really simple and super effective
option for this situation. It will confuse the heck out of your opponent,
and give you a very easy opportunity for a kill…So as you saw there, by flipping the
ramp, since you’re opponents body is initially inside of it, you’re able to shoot through
it. But, from your enemy’s point of view, what
they see is what appears to be a normal ramp blocking their shot. It’s simply a really easy shot to hit that
your enemy won’t be expecting because they think the ramp is still protecting them. And what most people will do after they get
hit the first time is become startled and jump backwards. What that will do is it’ll make the ramp go
from shoot-throughable to not shoot-throughable. That’s definitely not the official term for
that but hey let’s go with it. At that point they’ll be so confused about
what just happened to them, and how you managed to hit them even though there was a ramp in
their face, that all it should take is a simple ramp edit to finish them off. Or, when the situation occurs in a box with
no roof on it like in the clip I just showed you guys, you can just ramp up one or two
levels to the side, and kill them from a nice little high ground head glitch. So here’s another clip where you can see it
in action again. So, I hope you guys enjoyed this video and
if you watched the entire thing be sure to let me know with a comment down in the comment
section below. I wanna do more advanced tip videos like this
in the future so I wanna know, did you guys think these tips were a little too advanced,
not advanced enough, or pretty much just right. Whatever feedback you give, I’ll be sure to
