Fortnite like a snowball. It’s a game that’s constantly rolling and evolving, picking out everything in its path. That’s the best comparison I can think of with Chapter 3’s recent debut of the extended battle royale. With this new Chapter, new upgrades to an already winning game system set itself apart with its structuring mechanics. The new addition is all about movement.
Fortnite tend to derive inspiration here and there, possibly even in the form of one Between us rip-off game mode. This time, however, the influence seems to come from more of the movement shooters, especially the battle royale genre. Apex Legends. Fortnite has now integrated a momentum-based slider into its arsenal, and that’s a big deal, especially if you’re in the competitive crowd.
Slide activity according to your character’s momentum. If you’re going down a hill or you’re traveling at high speed from gliding downwards, you’ll get a huge boost. This mechanic really has a lot of applications that have been explored in high-level gaming. Fortnite Streamer and content creator Billy Bicep shared this piece of slideshow technology: As you can see in his clips below, he can get out of his car with a well-timed instant slide, then shoot, get back into the car, and keep moving.
Slides are a hugely useful tool, especially with this new season where it seems like a lot to move and orient the car. It makes switching seats to shoot while driving alone in a car a thing of the past, since the speed reduction is unrelated to the car’s sliding technology. Slides also have another built-in advantage: when you import slide animations, you can Almost instantaneous snap target to target.
The slide presence can be felt in construction battles and also in smaller construction skirmishes. REMOVEilly Bicep showed a way to your advantage when you’re stuck in a left side peek situation, it will normally force you to fight with a shorter field of view (because the left side view is smaller than the right side). But now, if you slide over it, you can almost instantly aim anywhere you want throughout the slide animation.
A simpler yet equally effective application of the new tool is simply to use it to move faster, adding even more options in different situations. As seen in Clip of Billy Bicep Below, players have discovered a build pattern that allows them to keep slide speeds high and consistent. There are many potential uses for this technology, including getting out of a fight quickly and safely.
While playing the past few days with friends, I talked and thought about future possibilities with the new mechanic. Imagine building a ramp while sliding into an enemy, building a wall, then editing it to initiate a quick and safe attack. Or slide to low ground instantly in teamfights while building to mix and dodge opponents. Or even simply slide down a hill to hold the cell phone while shooting the target. It really feels like such a simple addition to the game, but it breathes new life into it Fortnite, even for players like me who might not be the most technically savvy with the game and its higher level strategies.
But I can’t talk about the game’s new motion options without giving it New Spider-Man web shooter item. While playing the Battle Royale mode, players can find book bags containing one of Spidey’s most iconic tools. When equipping web shooters, they gain the ability to shoot web from one structure to another. This means swinging from trees, buildings, player-made structures, and even skiing down the street with the pull from moving cars. Every time I get this item, the game goes from Fortnite arrive MarvelSpiderman’s, with some of the best spin on the web I’ve felt since playing that game. The environment becomes a new world of opportunity as the right player chooses a web shooter, thanks to this new ability’s unprecedented level of mobility. All that said, it’s probably still not worth watching the nightmare fuel that is Batman and Superman with Spider-Man’s hand.
Fortnite A lot has evolved and changed, and the game has only deepened since its launch in 2017. These new motion options, as simple as they might sound, open a new door to the game. and greatly adds to the player’s creative freedom in both competitive and casual play. Here’s hoping that Epic Games will bring even more changes to player movement in the future.
