Flying around in a boat on Fortnite Battle Royale might not be something players think would be possible, but with the right tools, you would be surprised to see what’s actually possible. 

Epic Games are ramping up for the beginning of the Season 2 ending Device event, leaving members of the community wondering what’s to come next for the island. Well, in the meantime, some of them have been getting creative.

It is a case of while stocks last with these boats, as we don’t know yet if they’ll still be available after the next patch hits, so you might want to give this insane tactic a try.

How to get a flying boat in Fortnite

You will need a Chopper to make it all possible, but that’s not all.

If you thought you’ve seen it all on the current map, after two prolonged seasons and not much – in the grand scheme of things – being mixed up, prepare to be proven wrong.

With just a Grappler, boat, and helicopter, a group of Fortnite players have done the impossible and plunged a vehicle that’s supposed to cruise around on the water high up in the sky. Now, you definitely don’t learn how to do this at any maritime school.

  1. Jump into a game of Squads in Fortnite Battle Royale with a full team.
  2. Find a boat, helicopter, and a Grappler.
  3. Have one player take control of each vehicle, with the helicopter moving first. Another player in the back seat of the boat, holding the Grappler.
  4. As it lifts off the floor, have one teammate use the Grappler to connect to the moving aircraft, then quickly sit back down.
  5. Continuously repeat the motion and as the chopper soars upwards, so will the boat!

As seen in the video above, posted by user DPR0bot, it’s not always easy to achieve the desired result. That said, with a bit of practise and a lot of time on your hands, you might just crack it.

Once you have managed to pull it off, this will allow you to get a much higher vantage point than others using the same vehicles, but let’s not take it too seriously. It just looks hilarious, and that’s that.

Fortnite Season 5 now has a new teleporting feature thanks to the new Zero Point Crystals, and SypherPK has shared some must-know tips to help you master it.

As one of the most popular Fortnite content creators, many players look to SypherPK to offer advice and tips on how to master Epic’s online multiplayer battle royale – and he’s delivered once again with advice on making the most of the new teleport ability.

One of the biggest map changes in the game’s Season 5 update was the introduction of a new crystalline sands area right in the middle of the action. As well as letting players sink and hide, the area brings a new item called Zero Point Crystals.

During his December 3 video, SypherPK argued that “everyone is sleeping on the Zero Point Crystals” and offered up several reasons why they can actually be one of the most useful items to collect in Fortnite Season 5.

He explained that if you destroy crystals near the Zero Point and consume the small parts that scatter, you can perform a crystal-dash that lets you effectively teleport a short distance in any direction – even upwards if you need to get some height.

The crystal-dash is performed by double jumping and facing the direction you want to travel. Once you’ve consumed a crystal, you’ll have the ability for 30 seconds. It might seem like a small thing, but it could be a game-changer for getting out of tricky situations.

“If you really master the movement of the crystals, you can be very difficult to pin down and you don’t even have to build,” SypherPK explains in his video. “You can just be constantly flying around your opponent.”

While you can’t use the crystal-dash to move through solid surfaces or buildings, SypherPK discovered an exploit that lets you teleport through even a tiny gap in another player’s builds and dive into their box. It’s tricky to pull off, but rewarding when it works.

“You just fly into their builds, and once you get the timing right, it’s actually not that hard to repeat over and over,” he said. “You just gotta get the timing right.”
