What to Do when you’re Low on Mats in Fortnite

Being low on Mats in Fortnite is one of the most pressing issues we see arise in the late-game scenarios. Most of the time, we find ourselves running out of Materials in the game, especially in heightened scenarios where we do not constantly check on our inventory. This, in turn, leaves us a lot more vulnerable to being shot down and being gained the height advantage. However, we can definitely still remedy this deficiency and increase our longevity in the match.

The first and best thing to do is pure prevention. From the moment you land in the map to the last seconds of the circle, prevention of the situation is the best type of counter you can have in the game. It is a low-risk and high-reward mindset, as you do not go into the enemy fire by simply seeking out materials in the game when you need to. At the same time, however, be prudent in where you harvest your materials. Do not go out into the trees and start chopping them down piece by piece. Instead, go inside of homes, and you can most definitely get a sufficient amount of wood and brick. Go for the floors, walls, stairs, chairs, beds, and attics. These in-house items are usually the ones with the fastest return with the best safety. If you see that the last circle is mainly open, then you have no choice but to harvest in the open. In the case that it does come to this, try to chop down trees in an area where there are plenty of them or in an area that is secreted. For example, it would be much better to harvest in the middle of 20 trees than it is from 2, considering cover and abundance. Further, it is much better to be safe into a little patch of trees that is not the main focal point of the current circle.

Second, if it really comes to it, is to keep the pressure. For example, one time, when I was low on mats, and literally had nothing left while my opponent still had more to go, I kept on lasering down endlessly with both my AR, SMG, and grenades. You do not want to run away. This will lead you to look weak and make the opponent gain a lot of confidence, making you a very easy target. Instead, try to fake the fact that you can keep taking on the fight. Aim to deconstruct the structure and keep going for the kill.   Third, is to edit what you already can. Being low on mats forces you to be creative with the current structures that you have built. Make windows and doors and try to edit your stairs. Whatever you do, try to maneuver through the structure with a purpose. Locate the enemy and attempt to shoot them down. Further, you could attempt to bring down the entire structure by dropping yourself off to the ground and taking down each material that serves as the foundation. By dropping down discreetly, you will take your opponent by surprise, especially if the structure is high. Essentially, try winning by fall damage.
