Fortnite Season 7 has opened with the best news for gamers…Hoverboards! The news have been previously teased from Epic and the company made it actual on Season 7 release.
Although the hoverboard is the best news for gamers right now, Epic is not over yet. The company is also releasing two limited-time gaming modes, which include the Driftboard and another, where Epic is removing all the guns from the game and lets players play a game of dodgeball using only grenades.
There are also a few minor changes coming with this update, like reduced spawn rates for certain items. Balloons, gliders, and dual pistols will all spawn less often as floor loot. You can still get them out of chests as frequently as before.
