The new item coming to Fortnite, the Port-A-Fort, has caused quite a stir amongst the community. Here are some reactions by content creators:
Looks like it builds everything with metal, wont be an issue and wont really be a difficult item to counter considering the amount of time the 1×1 foundation would take to build. Just ez shoot it out, gonna be interesting to see how its used tho https://t.co/sA72RIDti9

its not a problem tbh, its just annoying. Just like the guided missile isn't "broken' it's just annoying to deal with. Feels like they're giving tons of crutches to players, but meh. I think it could be fun.

it's only like 3 high lol you can build above that in like 3 seconds.

Just saw the Port-A-Fort video…
I was a expecting something a little bit smaller but DAMN this should be interesting. “PandaLuvr748291” playing on their mom’s iPhone 6 is about to be a damn beast at building.

Idk how much more useful it can be than building a wall and a stair. Plus most people won’t sacrifice something in their inventory for it.
I’m excited for the trolls/memes

How do y’all feel about this new #Fortnite Auto build? As someone who isn’t great at building, idk if I would feel skillful using it.

Many people think that Epic are aiding players that aren’t good at building too much and this item won’t help these players to strengthen their building skills. The fort is made of metal and is 1×3. As Myth stated in his tweet, it should be easy to counteract if it is seen being built, as metal takes the longest to build as can easily be shot down. It would also be easy to build up to this fort as it is not that high.
It is important to remember that this item will be taking up an inventory slot and it’s hard enough for players to decide what to hold in their inventory without adding this item to the mix! It will be interesting to see how players use the Port-A-Fort in the game.
