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

By Laura Kate Dale on at

A new week is here, and we all know what that means. Yes, another new update for Fortnite, this time bringing us up to V8.10.

The big new piece of content for battle royale players this week is the introduction of a new vehicle called the "Baller", which is basically a giant hamster ball the player sits in. Not only can you roll around inside this ball, but it features a grappling hook and a boost, so you can swing around the world with speed and control.

Additionally, V8.10 adds a new form of vending machine to the game. These machines will dispense a free item, but will disappear completely after use. These completely replace the previous item payment based vending machines.

For creative mode players, there are new Exotic Islands and themes available to play around with. There are also some new PvP game rules available to help tweak the way your matches play out.

Lastly, for Save the World players, you can grab the returning hero Staredown Southie, and a new Test the Limits Beta Storm is available.

If you want to know all the minor tweaks which have been made to balance the game, or read through minor bug fixes, you can read the full patch notes here.
