This week's Fortnite: Battle Royale update is introducing a brand-new addition to the game, while also putting away a few staples. The latest patch is now live and brings with it a fun new way to travel: Balloons! After all, Epic Games is constantly adding new limited-time modes to Fortnite for fans to try out, and so it's not out of the realm of possibility that more PvPvE is on the way in some form.

Judging from the colour of the background, we can assume this item will be of Legendary status - but there may also be an Epic version of the weapon.

The Fortnitemares 2018 Halloween themed event for Fortnite Battle Royale has seen a great deal of spooky changes to the popular title, and now it looks as though the Fortnitemares event will be going out in dramatic fashion.

Comes with 20 deployable balloons.
