Delightfully daft new orb autos are actually rolling round Fortnite Battle Royale, huge hamster ball-looking rollies full with a grappling gun to swing round. I actually couldn’t let you know if this new ‘Baller’ car is sweet as a result of I, and everybody else I noticed in a single, was too busy larking about to play severely. Which is actually sufficient for me. As we speak’s replace additionally modified the rarely-used in-game merchandising machines to 1 decent-ish merchandise–however just one, ever–free of charge. However largely it’s in regards to the rolling.
Discovered at expedition camps and round pirate camp stashes (often a number of in a single place, from what I’ve seen), the Baller is fairly agile, blessed with a turbo increase, limitless grappling strains, and no likelihood of flipping over. The orb utterly encases us so we are able to’t be shot whereas driving, although the car solely has 300 well being and is a big goal. Additionally, it’s silly.
Whether or not you need to swing round like Overwatch’s hamster buddy Wrecking Ball, go recklessly off-piste like in a Jurassic World ‘Gyrosphere’, have a tenuous excuse to sing Limp Bizkit and Skee-Lo at your friends on Discord, or have interaction in tethering foolishness like Simply Trigger, the Baller has you coated.
It will probably get foolish when you might have a gang of zorbers, latching onto one another and boosting round for wacky physics penalties or simply dangling out of your pal who’s holding a pair balloons.
As for merchandising machines, yup, they’re now a welcome sight. Every merchandising machine will dispense just one merchandise earlier than exploding, however that merchandise will likely be free slightly than charging assets. Merchandising machines additionally now gained’t supply Widespread or Unusual gadgets, solely uncommon or above. In order that they’re principally chests with just a little extra promise?
The purpose is, ORBS.
