How to slide in Fortnite: What button to press

To slide in Fortnite, you need to be running and press the crouch button. If your PC is using CTRL for its default key binding then that’s what we’ll go with here–but it might not have been set at some point during game play!

You can only slide down angled surfaces, like hills or mountains. I found it a bit harder to pull off slides on gentle slopes as opposed to sharper angles- You also have the option of holding crouch button instead if you want that type control over your rider’s momentum (which is controlled by RT/R1).

One option you can change is the “slide hold time” under controller options in your settings menu. This allows for a slightly altered crouch button timing that will allow frictionless sliding when applicable – YAY!
