Soldier is one of four classes in Fortnite and can often be seen with heavy weapons, like the rocket launcher. Compared to the other classes, the soldier is a well balanced character, having many skills suited for guns, though not a lot of skills for secondary factors, like building and harvesting.

Specialties Edit

Each class has several different subsets of that character. These Specialties determine what perks your character will have.
