A brand-new vehicle is coming to Fortnite. It’s ‘The Baller’, a sphere shaped vehicle with what appears to be a Grappling Hook attached to the front. Epic unveiled the new vehicle in Sunday’s in-game news update. Epic describes ‘The Baller’ with the following text:
“Roll through the competition with the newest vehicle, The Baller!”
Since the removal of planes, Fortnite has been lacking in the transportation department. Some secluded areas of the map do not have access to cannons or vents. Players have become increasingly reliant on Gliders to move around. Epic also removed zip lines from numerous locations.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen ‘The Baller’, in a Season 8 loading screen it can be spotted in the background.
Leaked Week 3 challenges task players with using ‘The Baller’ in different matches. Epic commonly does this when introducing new items to aid in their adaptation.
Lastly, ‘The Baller’ will arrive in this week’s v8.10 update. If Epic sticks to schedule, the update will drop Tuesday morning at 4AM.
