You might remember that Epic teased the Driftboard when Fortnite season 7 launched and now just days before the season ends, Epic has finally released the hoverboard for eager players. The latest Fortnite patch adds a hovering snowboard to the game as well as a few limited time game modes, one of which uses the Driftboard.
The Driftboard is a limited time item in Fortnite v7.40 that lets players fire at their enemies, do tricks, and more. Players can do tricks and come up with fun new ways to use the item in Creative mode. A new Infantry Rifle has also been added.
Aside from that, there’s a new limited time game mode that removes all the guns from the game and has players playing an exciting game of dodgeball using grenades. This LTM, called Catch!, includes smoke grenades, clingers, remote explosives, Port-a-Forts, Impulse Grenades, and Shockwave Grenades. No other weapons will be available to players. That sounds intense.
The Driftin’ LTM will have two teams of 32 players with all Chests and Ammo Boxes removed. Red Supply Drops will fall all over the map and will contain a Driftboard, weapons, and ammo. Your Health and Shields regenerate slowly on a Driftboard.
