Fortnite streamer and Reddit user ‘ImSpeedyGonzales’ uploaded a video to the platform that revealed a simple yet effective strategy for players looking to control their movement on top of Fortnite’s Loot Lake.
Since the game’s mysterious, purple cube dissolved into the lake on September 19, the water has taken on a curious, elastic property, allowing players to bounce across its surface.
Gonzales provided a remedy to this phenomenon, which might be simpler than it seems.
He stated that players should turbo-build a wall, immediately placing a floor on the structure just afterwards. This will allow players to stand on top of their build and remain steady atop the Lake’s flubber-like surface.
While it doesn’t allow players to walk across the Lake without vaulting into the sky, it does provide a means for them to build on top of it, with a bit more control over their own mobility.
One commenter suggested that players could build a pyramid directly beneath them, but Gonzales admitted that the technique could be a bit risky.
“I tried pyramids (not pre edited),” he wrote, “and you can only land on the tip of the pyramid, so it’s not very viable.”
Other players revealed their own strategies for the Lake, some stating that they built stairs on the jello-like surface, while others built ramps and a floor.
While the strategy might seem obvious, it’s the little things that count in taking a game – and this strategy could be one of them.
