'Fortnite' Is Disabling the Glider Re-Deploy Feature in Default Modes

Fortnite's glider redeploy mechanic is being removed from default game modes

As a battle royale game, Fortnite doesn't provide a lot of opportunities for sneaky sabotage.

While people posting screenshots of in-game characters in National Football League costumes holding guns is something that one would expect for a battle royale shooter, if other screenshots included characters kneeling down then it is possible that the skins were removed because that could've been seen as a reference to the controversial anthem protests that frequently occurred during the NFL's previous season. Each time will have to build a fort around their giant mascot head - if the mascot head is destroyed, that team loses the match.

It should be noted that no explosive weapons are available in this mode, which also boasts special supply drops. Fortnite had revealed that the update would bring a new mounted turret weapon.

And whatever team you do choose, there's plenty of new rules to know about, which have been shared by Epic Games in the latest patch notes.

The Battle Royale side of things sees the introduction of Mounted Turrets.

In the Fortnitemares v6.20 update, Epic enabled glider redeployment in all Fortnite game modes, meaning players could pull out their glider at any time so long as they were three units or higher.

With the feature being disabled in all default game modes while Epic Games continues testing it elsewhere, this doesn't mean the feature is either gone for good or here to stay.

It is not yet known if the glider redeploy will return in the future but the option can still be found in game modes such as Playground.

However it can overheat if used for too long. "You could build a big sky ramp and then glide off to your next destination". Some players loved this, while others did not.

The glider redeploy was a game changer since it gave players the opportunity to rush or even make a quick escape if things were not going well. I've played a bit of it; it's quite fun and a nice break from the classic mode, however it's quite repetitive.
