After weeks of teasing these new additions to the game Fortnite has finally added four new cars along with two new skins. Fortnite update 13.40 brings with it one of the most significant changes that the battle royale has seen in quite a while.
Vehicles which are quite a common feature in a normal BR, have been missing from the game ever since chapter one started, that is if you don’t count the golf carts, hoverboards, helicopters or boats. Players have been asking for this feature for a long time as they were limited to traversing the map on foot.
Four New Cars
The Joy Ride update brings four new cars the Islander Prevalent, Victory Motors Whiplash, OG Bear, and Titano Mudflap. Player will be to drive around the map and refuel the cars at gas stations or by using gas cans which you find lying around. Each car has its own stats and brings different options to the table. However, there are also cars that players aren’t allowed to drive because of the tire boot look.
There are plenty of places that spawn these cars but it also depend on the spawn rate. Every location that can spawn cars:
- Catty Corner
- Pleasant Park
- Salty Springs
- Lazy Lake, particularly the west side
- Holly Hedges
- Sweaty Sands
- Ricket Rig’s north side
- Between Misty Meadows and Rickety Rig
- The bridge heading east of Pleasant Park
- Steamy Stacks, particularly on the west side
- East and south of Frenzy Farm
Fortnite has also added 2 new skins to the game one of which is crash dummy skin for players who like to crash into things rather than drive straight. The second skin which was even featured in the update trailer is called “Sandshark Driver” whose description says that she is a world class heavy tank driver
The Update also introduces Radio Stations which will play popular real world songs from well known artists who have collaborated with Epic Games. The artists featured are likely to be Diplo, Kenshi Yonezu, Marshmello, Drake and Travis Scott just to name a few. Currently there are four radio stations you can listen to-
