Popular Fortnite duo Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore have found the perfect way to counter one of the game’s most controversial vehicles – The Baller.

The Baller was added to Fortnite in the v8.10 update for the popular battle royale title, with the vehicle using a Grappler attached to the front of the spherical cockpit to roam around the map, offering quick movement and protection from enemy fire to those who use it.

The addition of The Baller has been an immediate cause of annoyance for many Fortnite fans, with many games now dominated by the vehicle. Players have used Reddit to highlight the issues, with many Fortnite fans posting clips of numerous opponents hiding inside the vehicles in the final circle in an attempt to secure a Victory Royale.

The Baller has been a controversial inclusion in Fortnite.

How did Cloak and Tfue counter The Baller?

While players continue to struggle with enemies using the vehicle, Fortnite pro duo Tfue and Cloak have found a way to deal with the pesky Baller, showing viewers of their stream the perfect way to do it during their Sunday, March 31 run in Fortnite’s Luxe Cup finals.

When the FaZe Clan duo came across a pair of enemy players sitting inside a box while driving The Baller, the Americans acted quickly to make sure they could eliminate them.

Cloak pulled out his Rocket Launcher, while Tfue made sure to have a Boogie Bomb in hand. As Cloak fired a rocket to destroy the structure that was providing the enemies protection. Tfue immediately threw in a Boogie Bomb, forcing their opponents out of The Baller as they helplessly danced, allowing the pair to charge in and kill them with ease.

“That’s how you fucking do it right there boys,” Tfue told those watching his stream. “Get your fucking notepads out.”

This technique obviously requires the use of a Rocket Launcher and Boogie Bombs, and due to the ‘RNG’ nature of Fortnite, it’s not always possible to find these items around the map. However, if you and a partner can get your hands on these weapons, you should have a decent chance at getting rid of those pesky Baller opponents.

Where to find Fortnite Iron Man jetpacks

After many long months, the fan-favorite jetpack has finally been re-added to Fortnite. This time however it’s straight from Iron Man, due to the special Marvel-themed season. Here’s a simple guide for how you can get your hands on the item.

One of the more interesting and least-hated items added to Fortnite since its launch is the jetpack. After being available in normal modes for a while, the item quickly became a fan-favorite, and getting one was pretty much required if you wanted to stand a chance in the final couple circles.

Epic Games decided to remove the item back in 2018 and instead, limited it to a number of different LTMs. Now, it seems like the developer has at least temporarily reversed course, as the item is now spawning in the base game again with a Marvel-themed twist.

What is the Iron Man jetpack?

From everything we’ve seen, it appears as if the Iron Man jetpack operates basically the same way the older jetpack did back in 2018, and that this new item is basically just a simple cosmetic re-skin.

The jetpack takes the slot of one of your items on the bottom right-hand side of the screen. If you want to use it though, you don’t have to have the item selected. All you need to do is jump and then hold down the jump button in order to raise yourself into the air, allowing you to use your weapons. Operation, as expected, is fairly simple.

Where can I find the Iron Man jetpack?

Apparently, the only place to find the Iron Man jetpack is as floor loot appearing randomly around the map for the moment. There doesn’t appear to be any specific, sure-fire, place to find it, so you’ll just have to keep looking until it pops up.

The item also doesn’t seem to show up from chests, which means it’s even harder to find than some weapons and other items. Of course, this could all change as time goes on.

It’s currently unknown how long the item will be in the game for, although logic would dictate that the longest it would be available would be the end of the current season given its Marvel theme.
