New Fortnite update adds hamster ball vehicle, other less important things
Tarryn van der Byl·
Out now on PC, Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, mobile, and probably one or two microwaves, the game’s 8.10 update introduces the Baller, a gyroscopic orb-for-one featuring a grappling hook and speed booster, but you’ll have to bring your own mixtape to the party.
Besides its fashionable plastic aesthetics, the Baller also temporarily blocks damage to its occupant with 300 built-in hit points, and according to the (very extensive) patch notes, you can find this thing at Expedition Outposts and pirate camps.
The update also includes the obligatory list of fixes, improvements, and other stuff, plus The Getaway, a new limited-time mode in which “players will race to find a Jewel and take it to a getaway van before everyone else to win the match”. But mostly the Baller.
