If you want to know how to ignite structures in Fortnite, we’ll explain how to do just that.

Setting stuff on fire in Fortnite pleases that arsonist we all have deep down inside of us.

And with a plethora of weapons and items Fortnite has, it should be super easy, right? Right? Let’s see.

How to Ignite Structures in Fortnite Chapter 4: Season OG?

We got some bad news for you guys. It looks like Epic has Vaulted every item that can set stuff on fire in its current OG Season. Earlier, there were a ton of items that could ignite structures, like Fireflies, Primal Flame Bow, and even ordinary Gas Cans. But they have all been Vaulted for the current Season. Season OG will last until December 2, 2023. So, if you are keen on igniting structures, you’ll just have to wait for a few more days.

One thing that you can try is to destroy the only car Season OG has: All Terrain Kart (ATK or Golf Cart as some players like to call it). Destroying vehicles may set nearby structures on fire so you can try driving up the Kart next to a building and then blowing it to bits.
