Latest Fortnite Update Introduces Giant Grappling Hamster Ball & New Limited Time Mode
Roll around in a giant hamster ball and grapple your way to victory, or safety, in the Baller. Epic Games’ newest addition to Fortnite arsenal of crazy weapons and vehicles. The Baller is now live with the release of Patch V8.10.
“This single seat vehicle is found at Expedition Outposts and around pirate camp loot stashes. Use the attached Grappler and Boost functionality to pull yourself up cliffs or swing through the trees. The driver is protected from damage, but The Baller is vulnerable to enemy weapon fire.”
The patch also comes with a bunch of new content including a single-use vending machine containing one free item or weapon. There’s also a new Limited Time Mode called Getaway where players race to find one of four jewels, or steal them from other players, and take the jewel to one of the four waiting getaway vans.
And of course, there’s also a host of bug fixes, balance fixes, and other quality of life improvements thrown into the mix. You’ll find the full patch notes on the Fortnite official site.
