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 Frag Grenade or their ally-buffing War Cry. Their only downside is that they don't have any other specialities besides combat itself.

The skills in the Soldier's skill tree revolve around improving Fortitude and Offense, granting offensive gadgets, and unlocking Evolution for Assault Rifles and Explosive Weapons.

Sub-classes[edit | edit source]

The Soldier Hero Class has 19 standard sub-classes, each with their own unique perks and bonuses.

Characters[edit | edit source]

In addition to sub-classes, Soldiers have 17 different character models that are usually tied to a particular sub-class. It is common, however, for events to release re-skins for sub-classes using characters not usually associated with the sub-class. For example, the character Jonesy is primarily associated with the Survivalist and Sergeant Variants, however the Fortnitemares 2017 event released a themed version of Jonesy with the Skull Trooper skin.

Eight of these Soldiers also appeared in the Battle Royale mode as characters who would be used by players who do not have any outfits.
