"Fortnite" Gets Its First Vehicle

Fortnite Battle Star

Epic Games has brought a lot of interesting content to Fortnite through the game's weekly updates but vehicles have not been one of them.

If you haven't already jumped on Fortnite and found a shopping cart, the new vehicle works by one player pushing the cart while another has the option of jumping into it.

You may have seen apples lying around in the world, which will heal the player 5 HP when consumed. You'll need to coordinate with other players to all dance on these simultaneously; the process takes a few seconds as the disco ball rises up toward the ceiling.

To celebrate the launch of the shopping cart, Epic Games also revealed a brand new cinematic trailer, which showcases two players jumping off a wooden ramp only to fail to make it across the gap.

Even better is the fact that these shopping carts feel like a flawless fit for the goofy tone of Fortnite. Fortnite's v4.3 update with Shopping Carts, is available now. It is also unclear if riding one will provide some protection to players. Back in September, Bluehole vice president Chang Han Kim said in a press release that the company wasn't thrilled with its new competitor, especially since "PUBG" uses Unreal Engine 4, which is developed by Epic Games.

Mushrooms are a handy thing to find because they will replenish 5 shield, no matter what your shield bar is at.

It's also worth noting that passengers inside shopping carts can shoot while on-the-move. PUBG filed the suit "to determine whether the latter's "Fortnite" was copied from the former's "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds". If it's discovered Epic Games lifted code directly from PUBG without modifying it they'll have some sort of case on their hands.
