This Fortnite exploit allows you to gain high-ground in seconds. All you need is a boat.

Boats are almost exclusively used for mobility in Fortnite Chapter 2. Their rockets are slow-firing and do little damage to players, which only makes them effective for clearing a path or breaking some structures.

Apart from the ATK in Chapter 1, boats might be the most balanced vehicle that Epic has ever added to Fortnite. They’re great when you need to move but heavily expose anyone who is standing in the back.

Well, one Fortnite player has found a way to make boats a bit more powerful. You can gain high-ground by parking a boat under a structure, hopping in, and jumping out. Here’s what it looks like in-game.

This probably won’t work every time – as you need to be in a position to phase through the bottom of the structure. When it does, though, you’ll gain high-ground without having to use any of your materials.

Next time you want to get involved in a massive build-battle, just drive your boat up, get out, and start shooting.
