You are not alone in your confusion over how to use the much-requested feature in Fortnite. It’s simple once you know, but there’s no instruction. Here’s a quick guide to sliding in Fortnite.
Sliding is now available in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 – but you’ll need to know which button to click to use it.
