The Soldier is one of the four playable Hero Classes available in Fortnite. They are a well-rounded class, with passive abilities revolving around optimizing ranged combat, either through reducing recoil, reducing reload time, or simply increasing damage using Assault Weapons. They also have various active abilities that give them some degree of versatility in combat, such as their Frag Grenade or their ally-buffing War Cry. Their only downside is that they don't have any other specialities besides combat itself.

Characters[edit | edit source]
In addition to sub classes, Soldiers have 13 different character models that are usually tied to a particular subclass. It is common, however, for events to release re-skins for subclasses using characters not usually associated with the subclass. For example, the character Jonesy is primarily associated with the Survivalist and Sergeant subclasses, however the Fortnitemares 2017 event released a themed version of Jonesy with the subclass Urban Assault.
The current Soldier characters are:
Traits[edit | edit source]
Each Hero has a set of Traits that are gradually unlocked as the hero is Upgraded. These include activatable Abilities, passive Hero Perks, and Squad Bonuses that apply when a hero is slotted into the respective slot in the Hero tab.
The following is a list of all traits from the Soldier class. To view a Sub Class' specific trait tree, see its individual page above.
When slotted into one of the Squad Bonus slots in the Hero tab, a hero's Squad Bonuses are applied to the player's primary hero as a passive perk. A Hero has either a Support Bonus, a Tactical Bonus, or both, which are shown in their respective slots on the Hero screen.
