Fortnite Galactus Event: Jet packs confirmed for live event

Epic Games have teased jet packs will be in the Galactus Fortnite live event.

The Galactus Fortnite event is 5 days away with the live event taking place on Tuesday, December 1st at 4 PM ET. We’ve seen a couple of teasers posted on the official Fortnite social media account including inside the upgraded battle bus.

One of the other leaks was that everyone lucky enough to get into a lobby and witness the Galactus live event will get their own jet pack. Epic have confirmed this in a social media post with a fighting Galactus tip. The tip is “don’t forget your jet pack”. This is the image that accompanied the tip.
