Fortnite Chapter 2 introduced a new map with a lot of waterways that are best navigated with a boat, but you can also drive on land with it. Epic wants to know what you think.
Epic Games experimented with many vehicles over the lifespan of Fortnite and now players have boats to play around with.
Most the vehicles that have been in Fortnite in the past have proven to be quite controversial whether they were too overpowered, too underpowered, gave too much mobility, or a plethora of other reasons.
While you might think boats are restricted to water, you can actually take these bad boys out on the open road and zoom across the grass through the use of boost.
Epic Games created a poll that asked players how they feel about having boats on land and it appears that the overwhelming majority of players are in favor of having it remain that way.
The poll has well over 100,000 votes so while it’s not the entire playerbase chiming in here, it’s a good-sized chunk of them. The boost is how you’ll get the boats moving across the map so it’s not like they’ll feel completely the same on land.
Despite having rockets, the boats aren’t really that overpowered as the mechs were so players aren’t as angry about them as they were with previous vehicles.
This might just be a way from Epic to build some more engagement with the fans about the new Chapter. Boats are probably not going anywhere this season no matter what players have to say about it.
With that said, it’s good to see players are enjoying them so far as it’s a complete 180 from how they felt about the BRUTEs from Season X.
