Instructions for moving large rocks in Fortnite
In order to use Runaway Boulders to your advantage, you may knock them loose in a number of ways. A pickaxe is the simplest tool to use. Depending on the game system you’re using, the following buttons will allow you to equip your pickaxe: Use Y for Xbox, Triangle for PlayStation, and F for PC. Get up close with your harvesting tool and smash the rocks below the boulder, sending it rolling in the other way. A swing or two should be enough to knock it out of the way, but you can check its progress on the “health bar” that appears. The boulder will become loose and roll once the base has been demolished.
There will be times when you won’t have time to grab your pickaxe and start swinging because of an oncoming enemy. But, don’t worry yourself silly about it. Even with your weapon drawn, you can remove Runaway Boulders. You may forego the pickaxe and just aim at the rocks at the base. Similar to the other approach, it will finally break free and start rolling while revealing a health bar. This is a fantastic strategy for distracting or eliminating adversaries underneath you.
What are Runaway Boulders?
Large, spherical boulders known as Runaway Boulders are typically surrounded by smaller stones. They may be discovered on numerous hills and mountains in Fortnite, and after being dislodged, they can be rolled about the map. When they land on an opponent’s head, especially from above, they can cause serious injury. They can be useful during the game if you need a place to hide, want to do a fast task, or want to kill an unsuspecting adversary.
Depending on whether a runaway boulder rolls in your direction or not, its impact on the outcome of the game will vary. Regardless, it’s tempting to try to remove that rocky trap if you ever come across one. The ultimate triumph might be yours with its aid. Speculation is always welcome!
