How To Counter The Stairway To Heaven


If you've played a game of Battle Royale, odds are you have seen a number of people attempt to build a never ending structure into the sky. This technique is called Building a Stairway To Heaven, allowing players to avoid direct contact with other fighters and thus greatly increases their chances for victory. While the success rate for this technique is borderline overwhelming, there are still a number of ways to counter it so you don't end up on the wrong side of one.

Here Are The Best Ways To Counter The Stairway To Heaven Technique:
1) Always keep an eye out on the sky above, especially near the edges of a storm. If you see anything that looks remotely close to a Stairway To Heaven, immediately attempt to shoot it down. Breaking just one piece of the structure will bring the rest of it tumbling down.

2) Players looking to pull of a Stairway To Heaven will have loads of preparations to complete before attempting to build it. Because of this, they will usually look to land in areas dense with both trees and rocks, like Moisty Mire, Fatal Fields, and Wailing Woods. Even if you aren't looking to build a Stairway to Heaven, head to one of these areas to stop any player before they can even start looking to do so.

3) The final thing you can do to counter players looking to build a Stairway To Heaven is simply build one of your own. If you pick a different landing spot at the beginning of the game than others looking to build the massive structure, you can do the same as them and meet them in the sky for an epic battle. Beat them at their own game!
