The trick is a pretty handy one -- sure, it requires a bit of savviness when it comes to constructing builds, but it will surely save players a lot of future headaches.

Fortnite is currently in the middle of its "Nexus War" event, which has brought a slew of Marvel Comics characters into the game in a fight against Galactus. Even when the "Nexus War" crossover comes to a close, it certainly won't be the end of Marvel's partnership with Fortnite, with Epic Games' Worldwide Creative Director Donald Mustard hinting that this is only the beginning.

"The reason why we called this season 'Nexus War' is this is just the start," Mustard said during a recent podcast appearance. "This is just the start of lots of stuff we have planned for many years in this Marvel integration. This is not the end; this is the beginning."

Fortnite is currently available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. You can check out all of our previous coverage of the game right here.
