Fortnite V8.10 Adds a Traversal Equipped Hamster Ball, And Rarely Dispensed Freebies

"We neither want to add friction for players nor do we want to benefit from accidental purchases or players regretting a purchase", said that developer. If you've been following the Fortnite leaks over the past couple of days, you likely already have an idea of The Baller can do, but today's patch notes detail the new vehicle in full. The Baller is a single-seat vehicle that can be found at Expedition Outposts and around pirate camp loot stashes.

In fact, if you're going to charge into an enemy head-on, the Baller might be one of the best ways to do it.

Whether you want to swing around like Overwatch's hamster friend Wrecking Ball, go recklessly off-piste like in a Jurassic World "Gyrosphere", have a tenuous excuse to sing Limp Bizkit and Skee-Lo at your pals on Discord, or engage in tethering foolishness like Just Cause, the Baller has you covered. It'll also protect the player from damage until all of its 300 health is chipped away.

Both Jordan Lasley and Jaleel Scott - 2018 National Football League draft selections - played no snaps last season. Unfortunately, Flacco was injured and was eventually forced to ride out the remainder of the season on the bench.

Another interesting change that comes with this update is the improved performance of Fortnite on the Nintendo Switch by "reducing the likelihood of particles triggering when the day changes phases". It should join the Driftboard and the Quadcrasher in the game's current list of vehicles that players can use in all default playlists and most of the Limited Time Modes. In other words, you don't have a choice but to play with people on other platforms if you want to play battle royale. From here on out, there are no more resource costs associated with the items and weapons offered in vending machines. Vending machines now dispense one item for free, but will disappear thereafter.

Outside of the ping issues, Fortnite has released a pretty solid patch and fans are surely hoping they keep the ball rolling into the new update.
