Epic Games Introduces Balloons in Fortnite Patch 6.21

In Battle Royale mode, balloons are added in sets of 20, allowing players to ditch the gravity by holding up to six balloons at a time. Epic also reminds to be mindful of your height, as Balloons will pop after spending a short amount of time at the building ceiling. Once you run out of balloons, they're gone - there's no recharging.

In terms of the gameplay, the biggest addition in this update are Balloons which will essentially let players float away on the battlefield. Balloons are found in an assortment of places-chests, supply drops, supply llamas, vending machines, or as floor loot-but you'll want to be careful when using them.

Alongside that the Semi-Auto Sniper, Guided Missile and Dual Pistols have been vaulted!

Fortnite's weekly patch is arriving a little later than we're used to, but that doesn't make it any less exciting (or unusual, as the case may be).

Fortnite players will just have to wait one more day.

- When grappling as a vehicle passenger, the velocity of your vehicle is factored into the grapple force.

As cross-play becomes more likely to be the future of the game, making the playing field as level as possible across all platforms is going to become more vital - and we're happy to see Epic has finally done what it can to address the balance in Fortnite.

- Grappling as a vehicle passenger will now cause the vehicle to travel in a straight line to its destination rather than traveling in an arc. The Grappler's velocity has also been tweaked. Also, if you like our efforts, consider sharing this story with your friends, this will encourage us to bring more exciting updates for you. However, it appears as though the Epic Games will continue to test the glider re-deploy feature and make improvements accordingly.

Meanwhile, explosives seem to be getting a buff, as 25 per cent of explosive damage will "now penetrate through structures and environment".
