Epic had teased the Driftboard when Fortnite season 7 opened and merely days before the season ends, Epic has finally released the hoverboard for players. The latest Fortnite patch does indeed add a hovering snowboard to the game in addition to a few limited time game modes one of which makes use of the Driftboard.
The Driftboard is a limited time item in Fortnite v7.40 and it lets players fire at enemies, pull off tricks, and boost towards victory. Players can perform tricks and come up with creative new ways to use the item in Creative mode. A new Infantry Rifle has been added as well.
There’s a new limited time game mode which removes all the guns from the game and has players playing an exciting game of dodgeball using only grenades. This LTM, titled Catch!, includes smoke grenades, clingers, remote explosives, Port-a-Forts, Impulse Grenades, and Shockwave Grenades. No other weapons will be available to players.
Meanwhile, the Driftin’ LTM will have two teams of 32 players with all Chests and Ammo Boxes being removed. Red Supply Drops will fall all over the map and each will contain a Driftboard, weapons, and ammo. Players will find that their Health and Shields regenerate slowly when they’re riding on a Driftboard.
