Airplane ‘Bumble’ vehicle coming to Fortnite Battle Royale according to leaks

A new vehicle has been discovered in the game files of Fortnite following the v6.22 update on November 4, and its description sounds very much like it will be a plane.

The game files relate to vehicle sounds for something called ‘Bumble’, but it is the types of sounds that indicate this will not be a land vehicle.

Instead, this new vehicle will almost certainly be soaring high in the sky, with sound descriptions such as ‘Overhead distant’ and ‘Travel Cue’.

Of course, none of this has been confirmed by Epic Games officially, these are simply raw game files, but given the file names it is difficult to fathom what else the ‘Bumble’ could possibly be.

Considering the recent change to gliders, allowing players to use them at any point in the match, it would make sense that more items were added allowing you to get up high.

Potentially the Bumble could also be a helicopter or another form of air vehicle, but most fans seem to be predicting an aeroplane.

Update: FNBRLeaks have now shared another leak relating to the Bumble on Twitter, and this all but confirms that it is indeed a plane.

The sounds described in the game files above can be heard in the video below, and you can distinctly hear a jet engine flying and the air rushing by. This would presumably be what a player on the ground would hear above them.

There’s no hints whatsoever as to when this vehicle might be added, although there is every chance we won’t see it in game until Season 7.

On the other hand, it could be as soon as next week, you never really know with Epic Games and their Fortnite surprises.

Presumably, a vehicle like this would be found at certain locations on the map, perhaps only one or two in total, but how they would affect balance and matches, especially in the closing moments will be interesting. 

How an air vehicle interacts with the storm would also be notable, as in other battle royale games with air vehicles, the storm often causes them to malfunction to prevent players simply flying around outside the zone.

Fortnite’s Marvel-themed Season 4 takeover is almost winding down, but there’s still plenty of opportunities to grab some last-minute XP boosts with our guide on the Week 10 challenges.

Season 4 of Fortnite has seen tons of new content over the weeks. On top of the ample supply of cosmetic unlocks, Epic has deployed everything from new abilities to secret challenges.

With the ongoing storyline teasing major changes each passing update, time is of the essence to get everything done before we reached Season 5. Once the rare items are gone from the game, there’s no chance at claiming them anytime in the future.

So if you’re trying to make every minute count and get the most of your experience gains, weekly challenges are for you.

Things couldn’t be simpler this time around and we’ve got you covered with everything there is to know about the week 10 objectives.

You’ll need to prioritizing vehicles early on to tick the latest challenges off your list.

First up, all of the usual tasks are listed once again. You’ll need to search some chests, find some quick kills, and collect various resources. These can all be smashed out in the blink of an eye without any real difficulty.

Vehicles will be a big priority over the next few days as there are three unique challenges to tick off. One will have you racing from The Fortilla to The Authority in under four minutes. Meanwhile, the other simply asks you to stay in a vehicle for a long period of time and travel the map.

Arguably the most difficult of the vehicle-specific challenges, you’ll need to eliminate a few enemies with them. This means you may have to catch some opposing players by surprise. Be on the lookout for explosives that could end your run before it really begins.

You can blitz through a handful of these activities at the same time but others require a more focused effort. Below is the full list of challenges for the latest week in Fortnite.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 10 Challenges

  • Search Chests at Upstate New York
  • Eliminations at Lazy Lake
  • Collect Metal from Slurpy Swamp
  • Catch fish at Heart Lake
  • Eliminate opponents by hitting them with vehicles
  • Drive a boat from The Fortilla to The Authority in less than 4 minutes
  • Ride 20,000 meters in a vehicle
  • Deal damage to opponents at Sentinel Graveyard

Expect the Sentinel Graveyard to be a hot drop for the next week.

You’ve still got a few weeks left to finish up the Season 4 Battle Pass. Though you may want to start rushing through not only these weekly tasks, but the secret challenges too. 

Every scrap of XP will help as you look to unlock the final rewards in the Marvel-centric update.
