Champion Spotlight: Ninja
Ninja was a limited-time free champion available to all players, who logged into the game for seven days between the period of 16th July 2021 and 15th October 2021. This was in conjunction with a promotion with the popular Fortnite YouTuber Ninja. He is the first champion of his kind as Ninja is not available to be summoned from Shards and if you didn’t get him between this time period you will never get him.
I LOVE NINJA! He is amazing and can be used everywhere on your account!
Ninja has a strong A2 for killing bosses whilst also providing some AoE control for waves. With a good A1 decrease Defense and an A2 that can place and activate HP Burn multiple times plus a hard-hitting A3 that also reduces the Cooldown of A2, he is great for Clan Boss, Dungeon bosses, and Doom Tower Bosses (if you can keep him alive).
You need to be aware that Ninja favors his A2 over his A3 on auto, sometimes you will need to change his AI to get the best out of him!
Ninja brings a completely new mechanic in his passive. Firstly, Ninja is able to increase his attack by 10% up to 100% and his critical damage by 5% up to 25% each time 1 enemy is hit by his A1, A2, A3. This may sound a bit complicated but it means for the passive to increase by 1 stack, he needs to complete all 3 attacks individually on a single enemy. This passive is especially brilliant for Clan Boss and Doom Tower boss fights as, more often than not, there is only one enemy on the boss wave.

Passive – Escalation [P]
Increases Ninja’s ATK by 10% (up to 100%) and C.DMG% (up to 25%) each time a single enemy is hit by all three of Ninja’s Active Skills in a single Round. This effect can occur multiple times against the same enemy.
When fighting Bosses, will increase Ninja’s ATK by 20% (up to 100%) and C.DMG by 10% (up to 25%) instead.
Ninja is so good, I use him everywhere and he is amazing in nearly every place, with his control, his bosskiller A2 and his decrease defense A1.
