To change the construction materials, you may change the controller configuration to custom and assign a custom button to the material you like to change with.

Should you change building materials?

If you didn’t already know, the various types of materials have varying degrees of strength. In descending order of strength from weakest (Wood) to strongest (Steel) (Metal). The fact that many of the top players would switch to metal while being shot at indicates that the opponent will have to work harder to get past the defences.

In contrast, when you’re constructing structures to climb up skyscrapers and up mountains, It is preferable to choose a weaker material and avoid wasting any metal or brick that you have already accumulated. A good reason why metal is much more difficult to come by than brick and wood is because it is far more expensive.

How to know when to switch?

When to transfer positions is best determined by observing the more accomplished players. If you watch footage of Ninja, Tfue, and many other professional players, you will notice that they employ various types of construction materials in different scenarios. As a result, you will have a clear grasp of the materials and when they should be used.

To become proficient at anything, like with any other game, it is necessary to observe how others perform. Afterwards, you may use those tactics to your own gaming experience.
