Balloons Pop Into Fortnite With Update v6.21

By Caleb Greer, 13 days ago
The circus has come to Fortnite in the latest update, v6.21, which includes balloons that allow you to get the drop on the competition. This new item can be used by the player to float onto buildings, cliffs, enemy towers—you name it! It can even be used on the shopping cart to glide. But be careful: enemy players can shoot and pop the balloons as you're flying, causing you to fall and take damage. This short video demonstrates the balloons in action:


Aside from balloons, another prominent feature of the patch is the introduction of Dim Mak Igor, a new hero available in Save the World. Described as a "Plague Doctor Ninja," this character can use Smoke Bombs on Husks while also minimizing damage intake with the Shadow Stance ability.
