Fortnite is Getting a Giant Hamster Ball Vehicle Called The Baller

'Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should.'

Fortnite is no stranger to wacky weapons and vehicles. Over the past few months, everything from grapple guns to shopping trolleys have been added, though in the current season, there are no vehicles to speak of. Still though, it’s genuinely surprising that Fortnite’s next vehicle appears to be a giant hamster ball, with a grapple plunger fitted to the front.

You’ll be able to check out this vehicular monstrosity for yourself by heading over to the Fortnite Coming Soon page, which can be accessed in game. All we have to go off thus far is the image shown below, so no solid release date or any real details on how the new vehicle will handle.

What we do know is that it is called The Baller, and that it appears to have a Grappler fixed to its front. Even more interesting is the appearance of new circle-shaped spots around several of the Expedition Outposts on the map. We reckon that these are charging points of some sort, suggesting that The Baller will have a finite range of use.

Epic has yet to comment on The Baller, or the mysterious spots that have popped up across the map. It’s likely that all will be revealed along with this week’s patch notes, which usually drop every Tuesday.
