All Fortnite vehicle mods and how to install them

Fortnite vehicle mods can give your cars a big boost in firepower and defense, so here’s everything you need to find and install them.

What vehicle mods are available in Fortnite? With the arrival of Chapter 5 Season 3: Wrecked, vehicle mods have returned to the game, except this time there are four new ones to discover, including powerful turrets for the roof of your car.

The new Mad Max-esque season of Fortnite is putting a heavy focus on vehicles to help you get across the revamped Fortnite map. With mods for weapons, armor, and even damage-resistant tires, you’ll have a beast of a car in no time. Here are all the vehicle mods available in the battle royale game right now, as well as tips on where to find them.

All vehicle mods in Fortnite

Here are the vehicle mods you can use in Fortnite:

  • Machine Gun Turret (Roof)
  • Grenade Launcher Turret (Roof)
  • Spiked Bumper (Bumper)
  • Cow Catcher (Bumper)
  • Bulletproof Tires (Tires)
  • Chonkers Off-Road Tires (Tires)

Each vehicle mod is separated into one of three categories: roof, bumper, or tires. You can only have one mod equipped in each slot, but you can replace it at any time with a different mod, or a new version of the existing one needs replacing.

Roof mods

The roof mods let you add a machine gun or a grenade launcher to your vehicle. These weapons are controlled from the passenger seat, so you’re going to have to bring a teammate with you to shoot while you drive. If you’re riding solo, park your car and switch seats to take control of the turret.

Bumper mods

The Spiked Bumper adds extra damage potential to the front of your vehicle, which is great news for people with road rage. The Cow Catcher gives your car some extra defense and ramming power for destroying builds.

Tire mods

Bulletproof Tires do what they say on the tin — make your tires indestructible — which is a great way to protect your vehicle from being kneecapped. Then there are the Chonkers Off-Road Tires which let you drive up steep hills and add some extra bounce.

How to install vehicle mods in Fortnite

You can add a vehicle mod to your car by driving straight through a vehicle mod box. These look like wooden crates and each one will have an image of what mod it contains printed on the side, so you know what you’re adding to your car.

Based on our time exploring the new season, vehicle mod boxes spawn on roadsides all over the map, so you don’t need to visit a specific location to get them. Alongside these boxes, there are also repair boxes littered around the island that restore your vehicle’s health when you drive through them.

What are the best Fortnite vehicle mods?

While it’s worth trying each vehicle mod out to see what you enjoy using the most, we believe we’ve found the perfect combination of mods.

Here are the best vehicle mods in Fortnite:

  • Bulletproof Tires
  • Spiked Bumper
  • Grenade Launcher Turret

Bulletproof Tires are an absolute must for protection. Once a vehicle’s tires have been popped, it essentially becomes useless as it slows down and can no longer drive in a straight line. What a nightmare. The Spiked Bumper will help deal extra damage to any opponents who get in your way, while the Grenade Launcher Turret is excellent for taking out enemy vehicles or structures.

Now that you’ve got a souped-up vehicle to ride around the island, you may want to take a look at the best Fortnite skins of all time. We also have the latest Fortnite codes to get free rewards, and the best LEGO Fortnite villagers to invite to your world.
