Research points icon.pngResearch Points are rewards that are gradually accumulated over time in Fortnite Save the World. A certain number of Research Points are granted per hour, though the rate and maximum storage capacity can be increased through Skills.


By spending your research points, you will gain increased FORT stats: F.O.R.T. is an acronym for the four basic statistics in FORTNITE. Players can add onto these bonuses with Survivor Squads. Increasing survivor stats will increase the overall Homebase Power and assist the player's ability to complete Missions. You can upgrade your F.O.R.T stats with Research Points at the command tab.

Fortitude - Increase health and regen rate.
Offense - Increase ranged and melee weapon damage.
Resistance - Increases shield and shield regen.
Tech - Increases trap damage, ability damage, gadget damage, and healing done.

To achieve the maximum power level it is best to level your FORT stats equally, but ensuring you always level each skill per 10. This way you can utilize the bonus FORT stats.

Note: These stats can be manually reset if wished to do so.
