Fortnite players can mantle up and over objects in a fast fashion to either outplay their enemy or evade their pursuit. Here’s how you can mantle objects in Fortnite and how to do it within 30 seconds of busting through a door.

Fortnite has evolved a lot over the years, adding crazy ways for players to get around the map along with collaborations that introduced the ODM Gear and Web-shooters.

As well as this, the game’s core mechanics have also evolved, as Fortnite now features sliding and mantle mechanics which give the game a much better flow and pace. Mantling is especially great for those who enjoy Zero Build, as it allows players to reach heights without the need for building.

That said, some are wondering how to mantle objects in Fortnite, perhaps provoked by an in-game Quest, so here’s our guide.

How to mantle objects in Fortnite

To mantle in Fortnite, simply press and hold the jump button and move in the direction of the object you wish to mantle. You can let go of the jump button once you have fully mantled the object. If this is not working for you, make sure you have ‘Hold Jump’ as your Mantle Activation method in the settings menu.

Combine this with a slide before you jump and mantle the object to improve your movement greatly.

How to mantle within 30 seconds of busting through a door in Fortnite

Fortnite players trying to complete the Summer Escape Quest that requires them to mantle within 30 seconds of busting through a door can follow these steps to complete the task:

  1. Enter a game of Battle Royale.
  2. Go to a building with a door you can bust through.
  3. Bust through the door and then look for a place to mantle, whether it’s inside the building or on the outside.

Alternatively, you can also mantle before you bust through a door. As long as you do it in the span of 30 seconds, the game will mark the quest as completed.
