The latest weekly update for Fortnite, version 8.10, is available now on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android. After Epic put most of the game's vehicles in the vault at the start of Season 8, this patch introduces an entirely new vehicle named The Baller, overhauls Vending Machines, adjusts skin, and makes a few other tweaks, too--the most notable of which includes a significant change to make cross-platform play the default option. It also brings back the Getaway limited-time mode, which for the next few days has its own special set of High Stakes challenges. Read on for a full breakdown of what's new and get a look at the full patch notes.
The Baller, as is evident from the picture below, is a hamster ball-like vehicle that comes equipped with a Boost and a Grappler for rapid mobility--Epic describes using these two abilities to "to pull yourself up cliffs or swing through the trees." If you've been playing as Wrecking Ball in Overwatch, you'll no doubt be familiar with this style of gameplay. While inside this single-seat ball, you're protected from damage, but the vehicle itself can see its 300 health depleted by enemy fire. Find The Baller at Expedition Outposts and around pirate camp loot stashes.
