Prepare for (possible) chaos!
Fortnite has a mixed track record when it comes to introducing new vehicles and movement mechanics to the game. What started out as a simple shopping cart designed to help you and a buddy hurtle down hills eventually gave way to giant mechs and the X-4 Stormwing planes that divided the player base to an unprecedented degree. With the launch of Fortnite Chapter 4 today, it looks like Epic Games is on the verge of introducing the next divisive movement mechanic to Fortnite – wall running.
The news comes via popular Fortnite leaker HYPEX claiming that Epic Games is working on a wall running mechanic in Fortnite Chapter 4. You can check out the tweet below.
What’s important here is that HYPEX isn’t saying it’s going to happen season only that it comes in Chapter 4. Given that the chapter could run for as long as 10 seasons, that means it’s unclear how close wall-running is to arriving in Fortnite.
It’s also unclear exactly how the mechanics will work. It can be added to a player’s default move arsenal, as we’ve seen in recent seasons with things like cloaks, parkour, and charging through doors. Otherwise, it might require picking up an item to activate it, as was the case with the Grappling Glove when it dropped last season.
Finally, as with all leaks, it’s worth taking this with a pinch of salt. While HYPEX may have found game files that evade wall-running, there’s no guarantee Epic Games will go ahead with this if they feel it wouldn’t work in Fortnite’s current meta.
