YouTuber Ali-A and a friend built the classic Modern Warfare map Shipment in Fortnite to have a 1v1 sniper battle.
Fans who were upset to see Ali-A leave Call of Duty will be happy to see him back in a sniper battle on Shipment – even if it happens to be in Fortnite.
Shipment became a favorite map for Call of Duty fans when it launched with Modern Warfare. It is one of the smallest maps in Call of Duty history and its size made it the go to map for 1v1 battles and challenges.
The map returned for Modern Warfare Remastered and then was remade as Shipment 1944 for Call of Duty: World War II.
Having started his YouTube career as a Call of Duty player, Shipment was the perfect map for Ali-A to build in Fortnite’s Playground Mode.
They created their tribute on the football pitch in Pleasant Park, which conveniently happens to be a similar enough size to the tiny CoD classic.
The famous containers of Shipment were recreated with metal materials in Fortnite’s Playground mode, leading to a more colorful recreation of the 1v1 battleground.
The battle was close and tense throughout, playing a little slower than a CoD match thanks to the long reloads and heavy handling characteristics of Fortnite sniper rifles. The video ends with another 1v1 on the Shipment build, except this time with shotguns. The full video can be seen below:
