The season 6 map changes have provided a new way to travel around the Fortnite map quickly.

The mysterious Cube disappeared into Loot Lake at the end of Season 5, only to reappear at the base of an island floating in the air.

Players discovered that you can fast travel around the map in Fortnite by using the new floating cube.

If you shoot the Cube while floating up to the Island, the Cube will send out a lightning bolt that launches you into the air.

This increased height is enough to glide to any location on the Fortnite map.

Reddit user ImSpeedyGonzales broke down the Fortnite fast travel process in a detailed video.

The Cube is referred to as Kevin, a nickname that has caught on in the Fortnite Community.

ImSpeddyGonzales advises to only shoot the south side of the Cube, since that’s where the most consistent lightning attacks come from.

You will also need to be below the surface of the Floating Island to pull off this fast travel trick, the Cube’s lightning will not be able to reach you if you are above the surface.

Users in the search of speed should note that the Cube will damage you, taking off 30 health.


You will also have to use materials to build up to the Floating Island, but being able to glide to anywhere on the map seems like a worthy trade.
