How to slide kick in Fortnite
You may know how to slide in Fortnite, but what about slide kicks? Well, it turns out it’s basically the same thing, but swipe kick in Fortnite, you have to hit something with your body while sliding.
So first you’ll need to have a full speed meter, or enough to take you the distance you need, then you need to run, hit the crouch button to slide, then hit something while sliding to kick it. .
The only problem with sliding kicks is that they don’t deal much damage, which can make certain challenges difficult to complete.
How to dislodge a runaway rock with a sliding kick in Fortnite
Seeing as slide kicks don’t deal much damage, what you need to do to dislodge a runaway rock with a slide kick in Fortnite is damage the rock first.
Be careful though, the rock doesn’t have a lot of health, so just hit it with your pickaxe twice. If you hit it more, you risk dislodging it without kicking it first.
Once you’ve whittled down the rocks’ health with two pickaxe hits, back up until you’ve put some distance between you and the rock. All you have to do now to dislodge the daring fugitive is run, slide, and then hit the rock to kick it.
Since sliding kicks don’t deal much damage, you’ll probably have to kick the rock a few times before it dislodges.
