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.

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 Fortnite Season 3 update comes after a long wait, with an all-new map, new battle pass, and new mechanics revolutionizing the mega-popular battle royale.

When is Halo coming to Fortnite? Skin release date, Winterfest, more

A Fortnite leaker has hinted at when the Halo skin and limited-time mode should be released, but the exact day is still slightly shrouded in mystery. 

Crossovers in Fortnite have been great for fans who want to combine two of their favorite things. In the past, we’ve seen everything from Batman to Stranger Things to a full-blown Marvel-themed season. 

In Chapter 2, Season 5, two more crossovers have joined the battle royale party. The Mandalorian from Star Wars is one of the battle pass skins, while Kratos from God of War has also released as a part of a cosmetics bundle. 

Leaks have suggested that more and more crossovers are coming, with Halo seemingly being the next one to arrive – bringing a Master Chief skin, as well as a few other cosmetics too.

Leaks have also claimed that there will be a Halo-themed, Red vs Blue limited-time mode – somewhat similar to the Marvel Endgame LTM where players were either part of the Avengers or Thanos’ army of minions. 

With Kratos getting his moment in the spotlight as of now, fans are desperate to know when Master Chief and the Halo crossover will take his place. 

Well, according to Fortnite leaker FNBRUnreleased, the Halo crossover is set to happen when the V15.10 update is released. As of writing, there is no concrete date for that, but it shouldn’t be too far away either.

When is Fortnite’s v15.10 update and Winterfest?

The V15.10 update would also, likely, be the patch to bring in the Winterfest celebrations back to Fortnite, so, we’d probably see some map changes too with more snow on the map. 

Last year, Winterfest started on December 18, which was a Wednesday. If Epic Games opt for a similar date this year, we could maybe see it around December 16-17, as they fall on a Wednesday and Thursday.

Ultimately, that is up to Epic, and we’ll just have to wait until they release an update, but hopefully, it won’t be too far away.
