Slide-in Fortnite Season 1 Chapter 3: Following the Chapter 2 Finale and scheduled downtime, Epic Games unveiled Fortnite Chapter 3 in its entirety this morning. The most major upgrade since Chapter 1’s conclusion established Chapter 2 was waiting on the other side. Epic Games created a brand-new map featuring new and old locations, weaponry, and gameplay.
Sliding was one of the new mechanics that leaked a few weeks ago. While no one knew what to anticipate, teases and previews leading up to Chapter 3 made it clear that the game would include sliding.
In Chapter 3, ESTNN describes how the sliding technique works and how to improve it in order to obtain Victory Royales.
Chapter 3 Learn How To Slide
In Fortnite Chapter 3, sliding is as simple as it gets. You must sprint while holding the crouch button to accomplish a slide. This will start the sliding animation for your character. You can also slide down an inclination more quickly, such as a steep slope. Another thing to keep in mind is that while sliding, you can still shoot your weapon. This strategy could help you avoid hostile fire while still rewarding precision.
Sliding had never been a feature in Fortnite Battle Royale until now. Learning all of the mechanic’s ins and outs may take some time. Sliding, on the other hand, appears to be a valuable skill to acquire early on when the Chapter 3 meta emerges. There will definitely be some innovative uses for the slide.
How To Slide In Playstation
Simply start running while holding down the crouch button in Fortnite to slide. This is the right analog stick for PlayStation users, although it will be different for other platforms. Press the same button one more to halt sliding.
Sliding is best done while sprinting down an incline or a steep slope, as it allows you to move faster and further, although it may also be done on a fully flat surface (albeit not very far).
When you have the upper hand, you can also fire weapons while sliding, which is a useful approach for stunning unsuspecting opponents. It takes some experience to become acclimated to this, so practice before launching an ambush.
For PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC use the slide commands
The following are the buttons you’ll need to slide in Fortnite on different platforms:
|Platform/Console||Command to Slide|
|PS4||Press the right control stick|
|PS5||Press the right control stick|
|Xbox One||Press the right control stick|
|Xbox Series X|S||Press the right control stick|
|Nintendo Switch||Press the right control stick|
These are the default commands, so if you’ve altered your key bindings or controller settings, you’ll need to start sliding with the button you specified for ‘crouching’ in Fortnite.
There’s also a parameter in Fortnite’s settings to modify how long you have to hold the ‘crouch’ button to enter sliding mode, which might make it a little easier to do in the heat of battle.
