Jetpacks are coming to Fortnite Battle Royale according to the game’s “new updates” section.
There is now an update screen on Fortnite Battle Royale which reveals content coming to the game. Currently, the screen shows some updates which are already in the game, such as the Royale Dragon glider and the Season 3 Battle Pass, but it also reveals jetpacks are “coming soon.”
The jetpack item is showing as a gold, legendary item and it seems it will have in-game use as the description says, “take the fight to all new heights.” However, this is the first time we’ve heard about jetpacks, as Epic Games have not officially announced they will be part of the game until now.
It’s unlikely you will be able to fly around the map willy-nilly, as that wouldn’t be fair, but jetpacks may provide a much-needed extra jump boost.
