#1 4 x 4 Box Strategy- This is the most common form of protection in the game. For this build you need to create four squares side by side forming a square to block attacks from the enemy.

This might seem like a very obvious thing to do, but many players after winning a fight tend to heal in open. That makes them sitting ducks for the enemies to get easy kills on them. Therefore, making a box and healing inside makes it harder to attack you for the enemies.

#2 Walling Using Turbo Build- This technique is very beneficial when you are against Mini-Gun or Drum gun spam against your defensive wall. Building a single wall over and over might not be possible.

Using turbo build places a wall as soon as it gets destroyed. Thus, you can withstand long bullets spam and save your precious health before getting into a fight with the enemy. You can also edit a few parts of your wall and backfire at them. Refer to the picture given above for editing.

#3 Suprise Ramp Edit- This building is a little offensive in nature but as we say Offence is the best form of defence. While building a ramp over an enemy while pushing, you can quickly edit the ramp backwards and it will break your foremost ramp to give you a straight look at your enemy while they are not prepared to react. Thus, giving you the upper hand in the match. To see this technique in visual, Watch this video:
