Fortnite Glider Redeploy test concluded in Patch v6.30

Fortnite Patch v6.30 release time announced By Ethan Chrisp

Fortnite Battle Royale is now free-to-play on Xbox One. It's chaotic, but it provides plenty of opportunities for backstabbing fun.

Fortnite's latest update includes a brilliant sounding "Food Fight" mode that pits two teams against one another to construct a giant fort each, before going at it.

When Fortnite Food Fight players get close to the enemy team's mascot, they will need to destroy the head to achieve victory. Build a fort to protect your restaurant mascot.

There's no explosive weapons or items in this mode, and players will respawn after 7 seconds maintaining their inventory. The ability forced players to keep on their toes but it also felt unfair to some. Maybe four teams would have been a better version.

Food Fight LTM is here and it is much different than what we are used to seeing from the battle royale game.

Re-deployable gliders were the key to the mode's success, and with good reason.

What do you think of this news?

When Epic Games first introduced re-deployable gliders to Fortnite, it relegated the feature strictly to the Soaring 50s Limited Time Mode in Patch 5.21.

According to Epic, the problem was that while it was happy with the results of the test, it was unable to meet its own "expectations of quickly iterating on the mechanic and communicating plans", leading to the removal of the mode. This isn't necessarily the last time we'll be able to redeploy gliders in default solos, duos, or squads, though. It also gave non-expert builders something fun to do. If they are, then NO V-BUCKS FOR YOU.

While the National Football League has had its share of controversy, ranging from Aaron Hernandez (who committed murder and would later kill himself in his cell), various domestic abuse allegations towards players, and most recently Colin Kaepernick and the kneeling trend that many other players have picked up, there shouldn't be any real reason among those to pull the skins.

The decision to add re-deployable gliders wasn't popular among many Fortnite players, with some top-level players lamenting the update's impact on build-offs. Other players felt it made the game less tactical or disliked how it de-emphasised building. I've played a bit of it; it's quite fun and a nice break from the classic mode, however it's quite repetitive.
