Now that the latest update has landed for Fortnite, players will be able to take to the skies in a sneaky quiet way thanks to the addition of balloons. Balloons allow players to float skyward, jump higher and sneak up quietly on enemies.

Other components of today's update include:

  • Fortnitemares continues through November 4th. Finish all the challenges and unlock the Dark Engine Glider that will bring along some Back to the Future vibes.
  • Save the World players can check out the newest hero, Dim Mak Igor

One big change in the game is the "glider re-deploy" feature that has been in use for about a week now, with Epic gathering data and making adjustments.

We understand that not all players agree with this change, but we would like to continue with this functionality in the game based on the positive results we’ve been seeing.

As this feature remains available, we’ll begin making quality of life changes to its functionality. First of which will be prioritizing Glider audio over weapon audio within certain ranges, this will begin in v6.21. We also plan on adding additional changes in future updates.

Check out the full update notes on the Fortnite site.
