What's The Use Of Editing Buildings

Editing buildings allows you to customize the structures you have built. The changes can be practical to get the Victory Royale, or for aesthetic - let your imagination run wild!

Edit Buildings For Your Convenience

Create Windows To Give You Vision

Creating a window on your wall will provide you a means of spotting and shooting down enemies. It also provides you some cover so that other players won't be able to hurt you back!

Create A Door For A Sneaky Exit

While enemies are busy shooting down the front of your Fort, create a door to sneak away from danger! You don't need to waste precious time destroying the wall you just made!

Scout Your Building's Lower Floors

Editing an opening onto your floor allows you to scout the lower parts of your structure or building!

How To Edit Buildings

Editing may look like a tedious task, but as soon as you get the hang of it, you'll be editing structures on the fly! With practice, you can even learn how to edit structures in the middle of a build battle!

Stand Close To Structures To Open Your Edit Menu

Standing close to a structure built by yourself or an ally will show the Edit prompt. You cannot edit structures built by enemy players.

Erase Mistakes By Resetting Your Edits

If you're unhappy with the edits you have made, you can use the Reset option to return all of the panels that you have edited.

There Are Some Edits You Just Can't Do

Some edits cannot be done. The panels will turn red if the edit you want is not allowed by the game.

Editing Walls - Door

Doors allow you to enter closed structures as well as provide an escape route without the need to destroy your wall.
