TSM’s Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani thinks that the rifts in Fortnite Battle Royale should stay on a permanent basis.
The professional player and Twitch star believes that the miniature portals give players the opportunity to play the game with “so much more creativity in terms or initial drops / loot runs”.
The rifts allow you to teleport into the sky somewhere nearby and glide to a location of you choosing, making it easier to outrun an approaching storm, escape a surprise attack, or even change up your looting technique.
Myth concludes by saying that the rifts are one of his favorite additions to the game so far. High praise indeed from one of the best players on the planet!
I genuinely think rifts and the totems or something similar should always be in the game, allows for so much more creativity in terms or initial drops / loot runs. 100% one of my favorite additions to the game.

The rifts have, by and large, been one of the most popular additions to Fortnite in Season 5, and players are constantly coming up with new ways of using them to their advantage.
They also seem to have made low traffic areas of the map more popular, as users can now land at those areas, do some looting, and then jump into a portal and move to a more highly populated area.
It is currently uncertain how long the rifts will remain in the game but, if Myth’s opinion reflects that of the community at large, Epic might have to consider making them a permanent feature.
With Season 5 due to continue until September 25, it is safe to assume that the popular portals will stay until that date at the very least.
