Some of the old vehicles from Fortnite Chapter 1 could be coming back to the game, according to recent Fortnite leaks.
Ever since the Shopping Cart back in the early days of Fortnite, Epic have been experimenting with new vehicle types to bring to the game. These vehicles have ranged from the entertaining and useful Driftboard to the broken and overpowered BRUTE.
Many of these vehicles – such as the Baller, Golf Cart, and Quad Crasher – have a special place in the heart of many players. We’ve been asking for some of these vehicles to return since Chapter 2 began, but Epic have been focusing on new content.
Cars, Motorboats, and Helicopters have populated the Chapter 2 map instead of any returning vehicles from “Old Fortnite.” According to a leak from FNBRUnreleased, however, that may change in the future. In a series of tweets, the data miner confirmed that Ballers, Driftboards, and Golf Carts had all been updated in the game files.
Of course, this could be related to an LTM, but we highly doubt that these vehicles would receive an update that only affects Creative Mode. We expect to see them in the game in some form or another.
We already saw the return of the X4-Stormwing during the Operation Snowdown event. At the time of writing, the plane is also enabled for the Air Royale LTM. We could see something similar with these returning vehicles.
Our best guess would be that these vehicles will return during Season 6. If you remember, we heard a lot of information in Season 4 that we thought we’d see in that season. As it turned out, most of those leaks revealed Season 5 information.
When you combine this with the leaked mod slots, it’s safe to assume that we’ll be getting a lot of this new content in the next Fortnite season. If and when these vehicles return to the game, we’ll be sure to let you know.
