Reddit user and Twitch streamer Fluffyox recently made a post describing a technique he discovered to not take fall damage when falling from great heights.
The streamer recently discovered a technique allowing players to not take fall damage in Fortnite Battle Royale by using the Grappler to his advantage in-game. Hang tight, this might sound tricky but it isn’t so hard.
In the video, you can clearly see Fluffyox wait to be extremely close to the ground before firing the Grappler and exploiting the physics to not take any fall damage whatsoever – despite falling from a huge height.
So, to allow others to learn the technique – Fluffyox took to Reddit to explain exactly how he pulled off the stunt.
“Vertical distance contributes less to the range than horizontal distance. Pure Horizontal range about 6.2 tiles, while pure vertical range is 7.2. They balance out at 4.8×4.8.”
“If you are out of range of the target surface when you fire (reticle shows a red X when fired), you can still successfully grapple if you move within range by the time the grapple reaches the max distance.”
Obviously, that sounds extremely over-complicated and technical for those who just want to not take fall damage in Fortnite Battle Royale without all the rocket science.
He’s basically saying that if you grapple toward areas 3.5-4.5 tiles away and 3.5-4.5 tiles high you can live through any fall. I guess it’s just all about timing.
It’s still complicated, but it’s a crazy way to not suffer from one of the game’s most frustrating mechanics.
