Fortnite Glider To Re-Deploy In All Game Modes

Epic Games made an exciting announcement regarding the looming v6.20 update which is scheduled for today, and it will change the way players rotate around the map from now on.

Not only have we seen the Quadcrasher introduced which provides players a quick method to move around, you will soon be able to re-deploy your Glider in all game modes.

“Heya folks,

In the v6.20 update, we’ll be adding the glider re-deploy mechanic from Soaring 50’s into all game modes. You’ll be able to hop into a Solo, Duo or Squad match as per usual, but now you will be able to re-deploy your glider when you are at least three stories high.

We’re testing how providing a singular mobility mechanic that all players can use will affect regular gameplay. We’re planning to run this for a week. Drop in, try it out, let us know what you think!”

There are currently several methods of travel in Fortnite Battle Royale which have slowly been introduced in order to allow players to cover a lot more ground in a shorter amount of time. These include:

  • Shopping Cart

  • ATK

  • Grappler

  • Shockwave Grenade

  • Chiller Trap

  • Rift-To-Go

In addition to all of these items and vehicles, Fortnite recently saw an upgrade to the Battle Bus which gave it a 25% speed boost. It seems Epic Games are pushing for quicker game play with these changes which players seem to be on board with as faster game play means more games ultimately.
It will be interesting to see what the week-long test will reveal and if the re-deploy feature will be here to stay.
