Fortnite: New ‘Rift-To-Go’ Item Allows For Portal Combat (VIDEO)
Fortnite is introducing a number of tweaks in its newly-live update, where high-scorers will get their due in a new Limited Time Mode and blast their way through Save the World with an all-new weapon. One of the biggest additions was a new item dubbed the Rift-To-Go, where harnessing the power of the game’s disappearing / reappearing Rifts is now an exciting possibility.
According to Epic Games, the Rift-To-Go will grant players the ability to teleport into the sky and skydive around the map, replicating the initial jump from the Battle Bus. When added to one’s inventory and activated, the inbound item will summon a temporary rift that stays open for 10 seconds. While this long duration seems convenient for team escapes, it also gives competitors the means to hop aboard the Rift, requiring a bit of strategy on the part of the user. Check out the Rift-To-Go in action below.
Those hoping to get quick access to the Rift-To-Go won’t have the best of luck. While available through usual methods (chests, vending machines, supply drops and loot llamas), the snowglobe-like device is currently only available in Epic rarity. Not the most uncommon item tier, it does mean players likely won’t see them used in every match. Further decreasing their presence is the item’s maximum stack size, which is only set at 2.
The ability to teleport around the map at will is sure to introduce some interesting new gameplay styles, especially with how creative players have proven to be in the past. Teleporting with the Rift-To-Go and gliding into the same Rift again has already rocketed to the top of my priority list. Fortnite is now available on Android, iOS, PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One.
