How to rotate quickly with Fortnite's Baller vehicle

Fortnite’s latest patch added a new vehicle into the game and while it’s not an offensive juggernaut, it does have its uses when it comes to mobility.

Among the changes introduced with Fortnite’s v8.10 one of the largest is the introduction of the new Baller vehicle. 


This vehicle certainly isn’t as powerful as the Stormwings were but the Baller makes up for this with its interesting mobility.

We’ve seen the Baller is able to combo with a Pirate Cannon, resulting a lot of distance being covered in a short time, all while bringing the Baller along.


The Pirate Cannon isn’t the only way to rotate quickly with the Baller though, as now more options have been discovered.

The Baller has opened up many new rotation options.

Another new addition to Season 8 of Fortnite is the volcano point of interest. This location took the place of Wailing Woods and is also the site of our next rotation trick with the Baller.

Reddit user dwarvencactus uploaded a video to show how to use the volcano and Baller to go anywhere you want.

The video shows how the Baller can ride the lava all the way up into the air if you hit it at the right spot. From there you’ll be able to eject from the Baller and glide to pretty much any place on the map.

If you still have questions after seeing the video, the original poster laid out exactly what is being done.

“You just drive into the main lava waterfall, there is a sweet spot which will send you up into the sky,” dwarvencactus wrote. “But make sure you don’t go too high or you die.”


The Baller has certainly shown its worth the first few days it has been available and there’s no telling what players will uncover next.


How to find Fortnite Season 3’s Fortilla key and open the Vault

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.
