Vehicles are once again enabled for Arena and the Fortnite World Cup Online Open for May 25 and 26 after fixing a glitch that caused players to be stuck.

A massive game-breaking bug popped up in Fortnite Battle Royale last week that caused players to become stuck in vehicles like the Baller and leave players completely vulnerable to eliminations.

Epic Games disabled vehicles for that weekend’s World Cup qualifiers as they worked to iron out the bugs, which have now been fixed and vehicles have once again been enabled for competitive players.

Epic GamesFortnite Battle Royale’s Baller has also been controversial.

Epic Games employee Loomin announced the vehicles have returned in a Reddit thread.

“We have fixed the issue with players getting stuck inside vehicles in the latest update,” he wrote. “Vehicles are now back in Arena, and will also be enabled for the Fortnite World Cup Online Open this weekend. Best of luck!”

Players that relied on Ballers and Quadcrashers for mobility will now have those options back. Fortnite Season 9 did introduce the Slipstreams for a way to traverse the map without the need for vehicles, meaning when they were disabled players weren’t at a complete disadvantage.

For better or worse, Ballers are back and look for them to play an important role in the qualifiers going forward, as they have been in the past.

Fortnite World Cup’s meta has shifted greatly

Players who were able to qualify in for the first week of the World Cup are now looking at an almost completely different game now. 

Gone is the Pump Shotgun, a weapon that many players relied on for eliminations, and in its place is the Combat Shotgun. 

We also have to mention the Drum Gun, a weapon voted on by the community for a return that is now running rampant in the competitive scene.

It’s now easier than ever to qualify for the World Cup – or harder depending on how you look at it.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3 flooded the entire map after Midas activated the Device—but now players get their turns to flood something of their own: their inventories with loot stolen from the Fortilla Vault.

Chapter 2, Season 3 changed Fortnite’s map drastically, in one of the biggest revamps ever for the game, namely by washing away most of the game’s northwestern points of interest and sliding in the Fortilla, a brand new set of islands in the southwestern quadrant.

Aside from wanting an excuse to travel to a new destination, players can now be additionally motivated to explore the Fortilla because they can defeat a boss, obtain a keycard, and then reap the benefits of boundless, formerly vaulted loot.

Fortnite’s Season 3 map, a flooded masterpiece with some intriguing additions.

South of Holly Hedges and west of Rickety Rig, you’ll find the Fortilla: a set of small islands surrounded by about five larger islands—all covered with structures resembling a tropical shanty town.

How to open Fortilla Vault

  1. Drop at the Fortilla in Fortnite Season 3
  2. Scour the area for Ocean
  3. Eliminate Ocean
  4. Pick up Ocean’s Fortilla Keycard (and other loot)
  5. Follow the Keycard’s directions to find and unlock the vault!

 

As mentioned by YouTube’s ‘Gamerz World,’ the best way to find Ocean is to glide around on one of the map’s boats and listen for her because she’s a talker.

Once you defeat Ocean, you’ll get three great pieces of loot: Ocean’s Burst Assault Rifle, Ocean’s Bottomless Chug Jug, and the ever-important Fortilla Keycard.

The Chug Jug is a nasty item, as it gives you full health and shields (and offers free refills). The gun is also mighty strong, but not nearly as exciting as the keycard, which will grant you directions and access to the Vault.

The Fortilla is an expansive set of islands, covered in henchmen and beach decor.

When you have the Fortilla Keycard selected from your inventory, the game will show you arrows towards the Vault. Follow those directions, make it to the Vault, and, voila, loot as far as the eye can see. 

The new Fortilla Vault is the latest in the game since Catty Corner’s Vault was discovered. While you got some sick loot from that one, nothing is quite as quenching as Ocean’s bottomless Chug Jug.
