Several days ago, a datamine from the Twitter account TwoEpicBuddies unveiled new assets coming to Epic Games’ wildly popular and successful multiplayer sandbox survival shooter Fortnite, with one discovery in particular pointing toward the return of Bounce Pads. Now, the video game developer has openly confirmed the objects’ inclusion in the free-to-play Battle Royale portion of the title, with the items officially being dubbed “Bouncer Traps”.
According to Epic Games’ description of Bouncer Traps, Fortnite fans can “hop on the new Bouncer Trap and send friend or foe soaring”, implying that not only does the item hold the potential for giving players an added boost, but also that it works as a means to unexpectedly cause an opponent to be launched into the air. As far as the latter feat is concerned, players can theoretically hide a Bouncer Trap in a particular area to then cause their enemy to become fodder for skeet shooting practice.
For those who have been out of the loop lately or have been taking a break from Fortnite, Bouncer Traps are simply the latest item of many to have made their way into the Epic Games phenomenon, as the studio added Shopping Carts just last week. And with Bouncer Traps now in the title alongside the new mode of transportation, it’s highly likely fans will find ways to soar through the air while riding on the carts.
All things considered, with Epic Games remaining dedicated to bringing Fortnite Battle Royale a steady influx of fresh content, it’s no wonder why the title remains one of the most popular and prolifically played products on the market. Plus, by constantly giving its players additional trials to test their skills with the weekly challenges, fans almost always have something new to do in Fortnite to keep themselves busy.
Fortnite is available now in early access for iOS, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
