Fortnite: ‘Fly Explosives’ Limited Time Mode Sees The Return Of Jetpacks, Now Live
Fans of Fortnite’ insanely popular Battle Royale mode have been dreaming of jetpacks ever since Epic Games took them away. They appeared for a brief period of time, players were taking to the skies to pull off insane no scopes, building became ridiculous, but like many other favorites, they were vaulted. Thanks to the new Fly Explosives Limited Time Mode, however, jetpacks are back!
Arriving today in the V5.10 content update, Fly Explosives will essentially turn everyone into Overwatch’s Pharah, raining all of that sweet justice from above. Jetpacks will be aplenty and the only weapons that participants will be able to pick up, as you might have guessed, are explosives. Here’s more from Epic’s description:
This mode combines the explosive fun of the High Explosives LTM and the vaulted Limited Time Item Jetpack. Take to the skies and blast everyone else back to the lobby!
- Only Explosive Weapons can be found in this mode.
- Floor Loot spawners will occasionally spawn Jetpacks.
- Fly Explosives Jetpacks have increased fuel regen rate & decreased burn rate compared to Default Jetpacks, to keep pilots in the sky a bit longer.
- Between-storm wait times have been reduced due to players needing less time to find adequate loot (avg. match length should be lower than 20m).
- Rocket Ammunition capped at 120.
- Profile Stats (K/D & Wins) are tracked in this mode.
Fortnite is currently available on PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, Xbox One, and iOS devices. If you’d like to read everything that’s new with the most recent content update, that can be found right here.
