With every new update, Epic Games keeps adding newer content to Fortnite. The newest mechanic in the game is known as the Versus board, which can be used to challenge other loopers on the island to a deathmatch. The Versus Board in the game is a part of the Dragon Ball x Fortnite collaboration. These boards are present all over the island and can be accessed by every player, provided they can reach them before being eliminated.
That said, it’s currently unclear how long these Versus Boards will continue to be in Fortnite. Given that they’ve been added so late in the season, they might stay till the current season ends. Alternatively, if the community appreciates this mechanic, then Epic Games might keep it for a more extended period before removing it from the game modes.
Fortnite Versus Board Locations
As mentioned before, the Versus Boards are a brand new mechanic in Fortnite. These boards can be found where bounty boards once stood on the island. Since these boards are placed all over the island, here’s a map that will help you figure out where every board is located on the island. That said, these boards appear as a small icon on your mini-map once you get close to them.
These Fortnite Versus Boards are nothing but a modified version of a Fortnite Bounty Boards, but with a slight twist. If you’ve ever picked up a bounty in Fortnite, you would know that the mini-map shows an approximate area where your target will be. These Versus Boards, on the other hand, reveal your enemy’s location and your location too. So both of you can see where you’re located. You can then choose to either face your enemy in battle, or you can hide till the timer runs out, or someone else eliminates your enemy.
How to use a Versus Board
Using a versus board isn’t that difficult. All you need to do is approach one of these boards and interact with them. The default keybind for this action is the “E” key on the keyboard. This binding can be changed by accessing the settings menu in-game. If you manage to eliminate your enemy before they eliminate you, you receive XP for your efforts. Given that the XP earning mechanic was slightly complicated this season, this new mechanic in Fortnite comes as a breather.
Finally, these Versus Boards are still new in the game. Since almost every player in the lobby will be gunning for these the moment they land, watch your back while trying to approach one. Moreover, there’s a high chance someone or the other will challenge you to a Versus battle anyway. So you might want to focus on picking up the loot before hitting a Versus Board.
