Port-a-Fort is a Rare Utility Item in Battle Royale. Upon detonation, it creates a large 3 tile high structure that can be used as a fort. The fort is made completely out of metal, spawns with no hitpoints, and has bouncy tires at the bottom so players can go up to the ramps on top. The Port-a-Fort is great in combat when structures need to be built quickly to ensure survival, or for new players who are still unfamiliar with the building mechanic. It also provides a great vantage point for sniping. Port-a-Forts drop in stacks of 1 with a maximum stack size of 5, and can be found in Chests and Supply Llamas.

Port-a-Fort was originally found in Epic but was demoted to Rare on Patch 5.40, The Port-a-Fort was then Vaulted on the initial release of Season 7, and finally was unvaulted in Chapter 2 Season 4.

With Hotfix 14.10.2, Port-a-Fort was Vaulted along with the Boogie Bomb in Arena and competitive modes. Port-a-Fort then we're vaulted in core modes with Patch 15.00.
