Fortnite: Ninja Guide For Beginners

Probably my favorite class in Fortnite, I consider the Ninja to be somewhere between the Soldier and the Outlander classes in terms of usability. With a decent mastery of melee weapons (mainly swords) and Dragon SLash that is great to take out large groups of enemies bundled together, it won't be rare to find yourself with the highest damage score on your team.

As for exploration, I believe the Ninja to be far more suited to it than the Outlander (although Keen Eyes does make them the better option when looking for valuable objects) thanks to their agility as well as the extremely addictive Mantis Leap that allows them to reach some high areas without having to build stairs. I personally found myself unable to fully appreciate the other classes due to the lack of this double jump, and I’ve even received complaints about my forts being hard to travel through (by non-ninjas).

Here is the list of Ninja heroes currently available:
 

Common - Legendary
  • Brawler
  • Fleetfoot
  • Assassin

Rare - Legendary
  • Stonefoot
  • Skirmisher
  • Dragon
  • Dim Mak

Epic - Legendary
  • Poisoner
  • Shuriken Master

Mythic
  • Swordmaster
 

Brawler
True to its name, the Brawler is definitely the Ninja hero you want to take into melee fights, possessing not only active skills that can be used to deal some high damage to enemies, but also passives one that increase her damage with edge weapons.

Perks (colored green, blue or purple according to the rarity level from which they become available):
  • Shinobi: Reduces fall damage by 10%.
  • Crescent Kick: Damages and stuns enemies for 3 seconds.
  • Mantis Leap: Allows the Ninja to jump twice.
  • Kickback: Reduces the energy cost of Crescent Kick to 15.
  • Five Winds Cut: Increases damage of edged weapons by 24%.
  • Dragon Slash: Dash 2 tiles forward and damage all enemies within 0.5 tiles of your path.
  • Kicking and Screaming: Crescent Kick applies Vulnerability to enemies hit. While active, Vulnerability increases damage taken by 40% for 4 seconds.
  • Assassination: Dealing damage with sword grants one stack of Assassination for 5 seconds. Increases damage dealt with sword by 5% per stack, and stack up to 5 times.
  • Quick Kick: Reduces the cooldown of Crescent Kick to 6 seconds.
  • Smoke Bomb: Creates a smoke cloud that damages and slows enemies inside for 5 seconds.
  • Pain Mastery: While under the effect of Assassination, critical hit is increased by 3% for edged weapons.
  • Hot Foot: Crescent Kick now deals energy damage. Damage increased by 100%.

Squad Bonus:
  • Sword Critical Damage: Increases sword critical damage by 35%.
 

Fleetfoot
With skills that are more focused towards exploration and traveling across the map, Fleetfoot Ken remains an excellent choice for fighting husks. Best used with ranged weapons, only getting close when you have the possibility to use Dragon Slash on groups of enemies.

Perks (colored green, blue or purple according to the rarity level from which they become available):
  • Shinobi: Reduces fall damage by 10%.
  • Mantis Leap: Allows the Ninja to jump twice.
  • Fleet: Increases movement speed by 12%.
  • Dragon Slash: Dash 2 tiles forward and damage all enemies within 0.5 tiles of your path.
  • Soft Landing: Reduces fall damage by 40%.
  • Throwing Stars: Throw three stars in a straight line, damaging enemies hit.
  • Assassination: Dealing damage with sword grants one stack of Assassination for 5 seconds. Increases damage dealt with sword by 5% per stack, and stack up to 5 times.
  • Long-Sassin: Increases the duration of Assassination to 11 seconds.
  • Three Mantis Style: Reduces the energy cost of Mantis Leap by 50%.
  • Smoke Bomb: Creates a smoke cloud that damages and slows enemies inside for 5 seconds.
  • Wind And Storm: While Assassination is active, grants 3% movement speed per stack.
  • Tail of the Dragon: Dragon Slash leaves a persistent trail that slows and damages enemies twice per second for 3 seconds.


Squad Bonus:
  • Stormborne: Melee kills increase movement speed by 30% for 3 seconds.
 

Assassin
Excellent in melee combat, Assassin is also great for exploring the map thanks to her boosted Mantis Leap.

Perks (colored green, blue or purple according to the rarity level from which they become available):
  • Shinobi: Reduces fall damage by 10%.
  • Throwing Stars: Throw three stars in a straight line, damaging enemies hit.
  • Mantis Leap: Allows the Ninja to jump twice.
  • Easy Sword: Reduces the energy cost of sword combo attacks by 60%.
  • Praying Mantis: The Ninja’s jumps can reach higher.
  • Dragon Slash: Dash 2 tiles forward and damage all enemies within 0.5 tiles of your path.
  • Assassination: Dealing damage with sword grants one stack of Assassination for 5 seconds. Increases damage dealt with sword by 5% per stack, and stack up to 5 times.
  • Long-Sassin: Increases the duration of Assassination to 11 seconds.
  • Easier Sword: Reduces the energy cost of sword combo attacks by 80% instead of 60%.
  • Smoke Bomb: Creates a smoke cloud that damages and slows enemies inside for 5 seconds.
  • Pain Mastery: While under the effect of Assassination, critical hit is increased by 3% for edged weapons.
  • Corrosive Blade: Critical hits from edged weapons deal 30% of the hit damage over time and slows the enemy hit by for 30%.

Squad Bonus:
  • Endurance Training: Increases maximum energy by 8%.

While the Soldier and Outlander classes do have skills that are oriented towards their specific roles, the Ninja remains a great substitution for them, and can even perform better under the right circumstances.
