Insane Highground Retakes That Will Win You More Build Fights!

  • Published: 21 September 2019
  • In this video, I showcase 4 advanced highground retakes that you all need to learn. These high ground retakes are both extremely practical and useful, as well as complex and advanced. Fortnite has come a long way since Season 2 and 3 where highground retakes were very simple and basic. Now, we have intricate combos of moves like Thwifo cones, Bugha jumps, scissor ramps, cone jumps, 90's, reverse jumps, reverse 90's, and tons of other building techniques. My goal for this video is to teach and help you learn some of the best and most effective retakes in Fortnite Season X and beyond. For each retake I show to get highground, I will show an example from a pro like Bugha or FaZe Sway doing the retake, why it works, tips and tricks to help you do it, and the entire highground retake technique itself. In order of appearance, the retakes are as follows: an insane double protected cone jump by Parallel Beats and NRG Edgey, a new FaZe Sway retake by Bugha that utilizes a cone rather than a ramp + a double edit depending on which combo you use, an interesting combo of reverse jumps and moves you dont' see a lot, and finally, a reverse 90 cone jump onto a ramp followed by a Thwifo cone. Overall, if you're looking for the best highground retakes for console, PC, keyboard and mouse, and controller, then this video is for you. These high ground retakes will not only help you win more build fights, but they will help you improve as a player, and get better at building and Fortnite!

            With the edgey retake where he double side jumps why do I keep jumping into my 2nd pyramid? How would I position myself better on my first jump to land my second jump? Constantly jumping into the second pyramid

              This works in 1v1s only. But when i use some retakes people just take their smg or scar and destroy my stuff.

                        I have a question, can you take highground without 2 ramp just one? You don't use much mats for do this this? or this is only for creative? thanks for an answer I will appreciate

                                                        Always cone myself or wall myself off with the retakes at 3:48 I thwifo cone but I add walls to the left or right side like Mongraal and Sway. As it gives u a lot more protection. Can anyone help me why when I do this I pyramid and floor myself or Run into my wall, I’ve tried it fast I’ve tried it slow I don’t really know what I’m looking for and what I should and shouldn’t be doing, even bubba puts wall to his left or right..

                                                          The retake at 3:48 I put Walls to the right (like mongraal) it’s a thwifoncone variation. But can someone tell me why I can thwifo come but as soon as I try this retake I either cone and floor myself, place a wall in front of me or place the pyramid then another pyramid instead of a ramp to run up, it’s really frustrating

                                                                                    On the first retake I keep landing on a flat instead of a flat + ramp. Any tips?
