How to complete the ‘super jump’ for easy high ground in Fortnite
The ‘super jump’ is a strategy that involves phasing through structures to jump 1.25 stories in one motion. Find out how it’s done.
Building strategies in Fortnite are constantly evolving, which is one of the reasons the game is so popular. If we could teleport back to Season 4, all of us would be pro players by now – out-building all of the top pros of the time.
One of the more recent strategies that has entered into Fortnite is the ‘super jump.’ This jump allows you to phase through structures to gain high ground in only one jump.

If you’re a regular of the r/FortniteCompetitive subreddit, then you’ve likely seen several clips of this jump in action. A player jumps once and ends up 1.25 stories above where they started. They do this by building a ramp and phasing through a floor and a second ramp.
The strategy looks easy enough to pull off when you see someone do it, but it can be extremely difficult to complete on your own. You need to make sure your character is exactly in the right position to complete the jump, which isn’t always easy when you’re in a real game.
Thankfully, YouTuber RESPRiT – known for his in-depth breakdown of Fortnite building strategies – provided a guide for the ‘super jump’ that walks you through the steps you need to learn.
This video, as is the case with most of RESPRiT’s videos, is easy to digest and walks you through the practice steps of learning the move. More and more competitive players are using this one, and it looks to be an integral part of Fortnite moving forward.
This strategy likely isn’t something that Epic will ever be able to patch, either. Phasing through structures has always been an aspect of Fortnite, and one strategy isn’t going to change that.
