If you don’t know what box fighting is, it is essentially the act of building, editing and fighting using the various build pieces in Fortnite. It is fast-paced and you will instantly know if you have come up against a player that is better than you at it because before you know it they will have “taken your walls” and it will only be a matter of time before he edits in and finishes off the job.
