The Fortnite v7.40 Content Update is here and includes the Driftboard, as previously reported, along with the new Driftin’ and Catch! Limited Time Modes.
The Driftboard is a new single-person vehicle and behaves similar to a boosted snowboard. It is the first vehicle in Fortnite that allows you to use weapons and consumables while driving. You can revive teammates without ever getting off the Driftboard. The only thing you cannot do on a Driftboard is build. Epic states that this item is here for a limited time, it is currently unknown when the item will go back into the vault.
New Driftin’ LTM
Driftin’ is a new LTM that prominently features the Driftboard. There are 64 total players, on two teams of 32. Chests and ammo boxes are removed. Throughout the map, Red supply drops aid players with weapons, ammo, and a Driftboard. In this LTM, health and shield regenerate (albeit slowly) while riding the Driftboard.
New Catch! LTM
Lastly, Catch! Is an LTM that fouses on throwing with no guns allowed. Players battle with grenades or other hand-held items. Chest and floor loot spawn rates are maxed, and supply drops slowly increase in frequency. The circle times are reduced in order to speed up the action. The following items are available in this LTM:
- Remote Explosives
- Smoke Grenades
- Impulse Grenades
- Shockwave Grenades
This update does not require any down time, players currently in-game will need to restart their app.
