You won’t have to fight constantly over boats and helicopters in Fortnite anymore. More vehicles are coming to help you traverse the new Season 3 map, including cars, ATVs, and others.

You could fly in Fortnite. You could navigate the seas in Fortnite. Once upon a time you could drive ATVs from POI to POI, but they were removed months ago.

Although the tide is now rising, land vehicles are making a return in Season 3. The trailer for the new season showcased a bunch of land vehicles being driven around the island, which means players will be able to as well.

Land vehicles are making a return to Fortnite, although the Quadcrasher isn’t.

While no in-game footage of players being able to drive around the island is available yet, it has been confirmed that when players boot onto Season 3, there will be new vehicles awaiting them.

Cars, buggies, taxis, and trucks await players around the map to help them get from one side to another.

They should work the same as helicopters and boats in Fortnite. They’ll have a set amount of HP, and once they break, they explode in an inferno. Whether they’ll be able to boost like boats, or will have other mechanics, is unclear.

The battle pass trailer also featured players getting around on water skis attached to the fin of a shark. If boating isn’t your thing, maybe you’ll be able to ride on the back of a shark instead of swimming.

If you were wondering about helicopters and boats, they won’t be going anywhere. With water flooding the map in Season 3, it’s more crucial than ever to find easy ways to navigate through sea or air.

Other vehicles might be added that weren’t shown in the trailer as well. Motorcycles are an obvious exclusion, although there might be some more wacky concepts players haven’t seen yet.

The upcoming Fortnite v15.21 update patch downtime has been announced, ushering in the next quests in the game as well as a new Boss Character, Mythic Item, and more.

Rumors and leaks have already dominated much of the v15.21 news cycle, and is already giving players a good indication of which new and exciting skin should be hitting the battle royale soon.

Meanwhile, Epic Games are going to try to pump some more content for players to sift through with an updated questline called the Jungler Hunter Quests, which should occupy players until the v15.30 update.

But before then, the Fortnite community should be aware that the v15.21 downtime is expected to come through on January 20 at 1 AM PST / 4 AM EST / 9:00 UTC.


“Hunt or be hunted” will be the theme for this next update which should already hype up players for what the Fortnite devs have in store.

Here’s everything we know that could come in the v15.21 patch update hitting the live Fortnite servers on January 20.
