Fortnite Season 8 has included a brand-new Trap item to the game, with Armored Walls making your structures much more powerful. Here’s how to find and use this new defensive item.
Following the news that Fortnite will be crossing over with designer fashion house Balenciaga, Epic Games has brought even more content with the September 21 hotfix. In this small update, they’ve announced a Fourth Birthday event, given players the chance to unvault an item, and added a new Trap.
The Armored Walls Trap covers builds in thick metal plating, giving “any building piece a whole bunch more HP.”
Here’s how to find and use this powerful new item.
How to get Armored Walls in Fortnite
Creating a safe area to hold down is one of the most important strategies to winning a game of Fortnite. Maintaining the high ground and having solid cover is ever-important and now your defense can now be even stronger thanks to the new Armored Walls Trap.
These Armored Walls have arrived in Fortnite Battle Royale matches with the September 21 update. In the accompanying announcement, Epic Games revealed that Armored Walls can be found in Supply Boxes and on the ground. So, it shouldn’t be too difficult to find them, you just need to loot around.
How to use Armored Walls in Fortnite
Armored Walls are Uncommon Traps, so will go into the Trap inventory slot. Like placing the old Damage Traps or Bouncers, you just need to approach one of your own structures with Armor Plates in your inventory and press your Trap keybind, e.g T.
The wall will now become a thick metal structure with 2,500 HP, so the enemies will have an extremely hard time breaking through. However, it works both ways, so be careful you don’t box yourself in!
Here’s a quick summary:
- Build or approach one of your walls in Fortnite
- Have the Armored Walls trap at the ready
- Press your Trap button to apply it to the surface
And that’s how you can find and use Armored Walls in Fortnite Season 8! For more guides, check out how to level up the Fortnite Season 8 Battle Pass fast.

According to the Battle Pass, Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 will end on Friday, June 3, 2022.
While Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1 did not have an event to bring things to an end, data miners have uncovered strings in the v20.40 update files, and these indicate that Chapter 3, Season 2 may end with a live event.
The data miners mentioned an in-game countdown, a pre-event lobby, as well as brand-new skins for Paradigm and Jonesy. However, it’s worth keeping in mind that these are leaks, so take this information with a grain of salt.

This would be the second consecutive time that Epic have started a new season on a weekend, with Season 2 kicking off on a Sunday.
Of course, it’s still possible that Epic Games could delay it by a couple of days, as most Fortnite updates release on a Tuesday. That would mean the patch is unlikely to launch any later than June 7, 2022.

At the time of writing, Epic Games haven’t revealed what content players should expect when Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3 finally goes live. The developers will probably drop teasers near the release date of the season update.

This has caused speculation about the arrival of iconic villain Darth Vader in Chapter 3, Season 3. Epic Games have previously added other Star Wars characters like Obi-Wan Kenobi to Fortnite, so this wouldn’t be surprising.
