A new item is coming to Fortnite: Battle Royale in line with the upcoming update and the ongoing Halloween event, the Balloons. This new item seems to be a new mobility item, but it might be different with the other item in the game.
This update has been made as the mystery cube is quite being revealed, the developer keeps on adding even more objects and items for players to use and to pump up the climax-reaching season. Epic Games confirmed that the new addition to the game would Balloons.
Fortnite Battle Royale’s in-game Message of the Day says, “Inflate balloons to defy gravity! Add balloons to increase your altitude!”. It seems to be that Balloons will be added soon, and as we can see from the message, this item might offer the ability for players to float in the air to certain destinations.
Aside from the floating concept, we can correlate this new item into the concept of the movie UP. Players might use more than one balloon at a time to further increase their altitude, and reach as high as they can go.
But game balancing is still a thing to be considered. In reality, balloons are fragile, so we might expect that enemy players might be able to shoot other players using the balloon. So this might be a one-time item, players can have a great advantage, but the weak point is enemies might be able to shoot at them and pop them, making the player fall to death.
It is still unknown if the balloon will take up a slot into the inventory. But if we were to look at the Jetpack taking a slot into the inventory, the balloon might be the same as well. This might be a good addition to the Halloween event, as it might add some aesthetic influence into the clown costume. We will see more of it as it might be release on Wednesday, October 31.
