Powerful Hero Build in Fortnite Save the World

With the new hero system, the player is afforded more flexibility and creativity with which heroes they want to do. That being said, you still want to have an idea on what you want to build towards. If you are having a little trouble creating a solid build, these suggestions will help.

Each build will suggest 6 heroes – 1 Commander and 5 Support heroes. I won’t be marking a commander, you can choose that for yourself.
