After months of waiting, wheeled shopping carts are finally added to Fortnite . A message added to the welcome screen (displayed when the Battle Royale is booted) indicates that the four-wheeled mount will soon be playable. The text along with the cart reads: "Fight alone or with a buddy!" Carts are the first vehicles Fortnite ever had, so players have the first chance to move in anything but their legs. How it will work is pure speculation that the car is still not playable in any Fortnite game mode.
Expect these cars to go live during the next update, which is likely to go live on Tuesday or later this week. Like every item added to the game, expect a bottle-pass mission that will affect the cart over the next few weeks. Since it does not appear that the mounts are mentioned in the leaked competitions of week 5, Epic Games could wait before the players crash against each other.
What are shopping carts in Fortnite?
Already in March Patch 3.0.0 brought an influx of shopping carts to Fortnites card. The players were not sure if the cars meant anything until the data graves found a "DrivableVehicles" folder hidden in the Battle Royale's game folder. Cart models, vehicle animations and drivable features were all locked and rested until a developer did something with them. After the update adds shopping carts, you can drive to Fortnite we finally know these files were not just a joke or a distraction.
It's unclear what the shopping carts can do, but they expect to work as if they were real-world counterparts. They push the car to drive faster, brake with their feet or with the push of a button. A player can not shoot if he pushes, but someone who rides inside the basket can shoot.
This post will be updated when the cart goes online.
