Going up against an enemy that decides to ‘turtle’ can be a difficult situation in Fortnite.

‘Turtling’ is when a player will build themselves into an enclosed 1×1 structure in order to quickly heal, reload, or get away from the action momentarily.

Everyone has been in a situation where you are constantly trying to break the walls of an enemy structure as they continuously spam the build button, making it incredibly difficult to reach them.

Luckily, YouTuber and Redditor MarcosGonzalezTV has put a relatively simple counter to ‘turtling’ by using grenades and a variety of building options.

A player must create some sort of ‘crevice’ for the grenade to stay in after being thrown, which will successfully bring down the enemy structure and allow for a better chance of getting the kill.

The full tutorial can be viewed below.
