How to slide in Fortnite Chapter 3
Fortnite’s newest mechanic that lets you slide across the map. Here’s how to do it, along with details on how to slide cancel.
Epic Games added a slide mechanic in Fortnite Chapter 3, and here’s everything you need to know about it, including how to cancel slides during combat.
There are many changes to sort through in Fortnite Chapter 3. We have a new Battle Pass featuring Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Spider-Man as unlockable skins, and some new mechanics to give players an advantage in battle.
One of these allows players to slide across the map while running. This feature has been a part of games like Apex Legends for a long time and is now finally in Fortnite. It’s also fairly easy to pull off during combat.
Here’s everything you need to know about sliding in Fortnite.
How to slide in Fortnite on PlayStation, Xbox, Switch, and PC
You can slide in Fortnite by running and pressing the crouch button. As we said before, this isn’t too difficult to do during combat, and you just need to know which button to press..
Here are the default slide buttons on all platforms:
- PS4/ PS5: Press the right analogue stick down
- Xbox One/ Xbox Series X: Press the right analogue stick down
- Nintendo Switch: Press the right control stick down
- PC: Press the CTRL key
While this is the default crouch button, it’s important to note that this may not apply if you have changed it in your keybinding settings. So you’ll need to remember what button it is or reset it to the default settings.
How To slide cancel in Fortnite
Sometimes you might accidentally start sliding when you didn’t intend to, and this could seriously harm you during a gunfight. Luckily, the game lets you cancel the animation by pressing the crouch button a second time.
This will instantly get your character back into the running position. You can only slide down steep slopes such as hills, mountains, and slanting rooftops. Since you can use your weapon while sliding, this can be useful in battles.
You can also change the “slide hold time” when playing on a controller. This changes the duration for which you need to hold the crouch button to get your character to begin sliding.
