Elemental Damage / Buildings

Recommended Posts

In Fortnite we can find  3 types of elemental husks: Fire, Nature, Water a husk without element uses physical damage. Physical husks have a "standard" colors. Only smashers, zappers, husks, husky husks can have elemental damage.

You will start seeing elemental husks once you are in Canny Valley. elemental husks

Elemental husk Damage type and mechanics
Fire husk Fire damage, the damage is first applied on your shield, then health
Nature husk Nature damage will target your energy first then shield and at the end your health
Water husk Water damage will target your shield first then energy
Physical husk Physical damage will target your shield first then health

Elemental Damage vs Elemental Damage

As you might have noticed your guns can roll Damage Elements, there are 5 kinds of elements that apply to weapons: Fire Nature Water Physical Energy

Some numbers:

Attacking with the same element (f.e Fire vs Fire) will only deal 67% damage of the supposed damage Attacking with a counter element will deal 100% damage of the supposed damage Attacking with any non-counter element will deal 25% damage of the supposed damage

Element Is weak against Is good against Comment
Fire Water ( ⇩ 25% damage ) Nature ( ⇧ 100% damage ) Fire element damage is only good against Nature husk
Nature Fire ( ⇩ 25% damage ) Water ( ⇧ 100% damage ) Nature element damage is only good against Water husk
Water Nature ( ⇩ 25% damage ) Fire ( ⇧ 100% damage ) Water element damage is only good against Fire husk
Physical Fire Water Nature ( ⇩ 50% damage ) Physical ( ⇧ 100% damage ) Physical element damage is only good against Physical husk
Energy - Fire  Water  Nature Physical ( ⇧ 75% damage ) Energy is decent against all elements, the only downside is that it deals only 75% of the supposed damage

Elemental Damage vs Walls

By default, husks are dealing 100% base damage on structures. Once you place the wrong material against an elemental damage husk their damage is increased to 200%.

Material Is weak against Is good against Comment
Woodmetal Fire ( ⇧ 200% damage )  Nature / Water ( normal damage ) It's not recommended to build with wood
Stonemetal Water ( ⇧ 200% damage ) Nature Fire ( normal damage ) You should always build with Stone when you face Nature husks
Metal metal Nature ( ⇧ 200% damage ) Fire Water ( normal damage ) You should always build with Metal when you face Water husks.

I don't like tables!

  • When you face a Fire husks its recommended to build metalMetal ( because metal constructions provide more hit points ), it's ok to build with Stone.
  • When you face a Water husk it's recommended to build metalMetal, do not build wood due to the low amount of hitpoints that wooden structures provide.
  • When you face a Nature husk its recommended to build metalStone, do not build wood due to the low amount of hitpoints that wooden structures provide.
  • When you face a Physical husk its recommended to build metalMetal ( for the increased durability of your structures ) but it is also not bad to build metalStone
