In Fortnite Season 4, a new theme was introduced. Epic Games confirmed that characters like Thor, Wolverine, Captain America, Iron Man, and others will be featured in the game. The new Fortnite season also came up with better in-game mechanics and features.
However, it wasn’t just the new characters and features that came along with Season 4. Some new tricks were also discovered. One such amazing trick allows the players to run twice as fast as other players in the game. So here’s how you can also increase your movement speed.
How to run faster than other players in Fortnite?
- You need a Spicy Fish and a Pepper as these two items heal your character. These items can be stacked on top of each other to get a speed boost for a certain duration of time.
- Now all you need to do is look for a fishing rod that can be found in different variants on the entire map.
- With the help of the fishing rod, you need to catch the ‘Rare Spicy Fish’.
- On consuming the Rare Spicy Fish with a Pepper, the movement speed of your character will increase significantly.
A Reddit user who goes by the name of ‘bigmanhenry‘ conducted a small test. In his video, the character ran from one point to another on the map without any consumables in almost 14 seconds. After consuming the peppers, the character saved about four seconds while covering the same distance.
On consuming both the fish and the pepper, a big difference could be clearly observed in the movement speed of the character. This time he was able to save 7 seconds which made the running speed almost double.
There are other ways to speed up your running speed via Bouncers, Crash Pads, or even the new Marvel skins. However, those can be difficult to find at times so you can always opt for this neat little trick to increase running speed in Fortnite.
