Cars have been added to Fortnite in the 13.40 update. You can finally zoom around the map in these awesome vehicles, and it has to be said, the handling is really quite good.
Where can you find cars?
You can find cars all over the map. As long as a car does not have a big yellow boot on the front wheels, locking it in place, you should be able to drive it. Named locations like Retail Row, Pleasant Park, and Lazy Lake, all have multiple cars that you can drive. Single cars can be found parked in many different locations, so they are not hard to find.
How do you use cars
To drive a car, run up to it an hit the prompted interact button. Cars don’t have a boost like Choppas and boats, and their speed is dictated by their type. Large trucks are slower, but have more health, while smaller cars are faster, but are destroyed more quickly. Cars also need fuel, and if you run out, you will need to gas it up somewhere.
How do you gas up your car?
You can gas up your car at any gas station, or by using a gas can that can be found all over the map. Interact with the gas pump, then stand beside your car and “fire” the gas at it to refuel it.
Can you destroy other player’s cars?
Yes, just like Choppas and boats, cars all have a health bar that you can damage, and when it reaches zero the car will explode, killing anyone foolish enough to stay inside. You can also shoot out the wheels, making the car much slower and far more difficult to drive.
Can I repair my car?
There does not appear to be any way to repair your car. If it takes too much damage you will need to ditch it and find another one, but they are not hard to find.
