by Shaun Cichacki


It seems as if Fortnite may be looking toward the past to help welcome in the future since they decided to bring back one of the most iconic vehicles in the franchise. You’ll be able to get your hands on the Baller once again after it was introduced back in Season 8. If you’re a newer player, you may not have used the Baller back in the day, so you may be confused about what makes this a great vehicle to navigate around in.

Not to worry, however. That’s where we come into play, as we will let you know what makes the Baller as special as it is, and what you’ll be able to do with this one-of-a-kind piece of machinery. Let’s jump off the battle bus, and get right into the information so you know how to master the Baller and make it the best vehicle you’ve ever used!

How To Use The Baller In Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3

If you’ve gotten into the Baller, you’ll have a few different ways to navigate around the world. Since this is a vehicle, you’ll need to make sure that there is plenty of fuel to make it around the world, since this is one of the few vehicles that does not allow you to refuel. During its original run, it was a vehicle that could be driven anywhere, at any time so you would be able to use it for as long as you would like. However, with its return, they did nerf that feature, so you’ll need to be slightly sparing with the use of this new version of the Baller.

Secondly, you’ll want to make sure that you’re using the Grabber on the front to its full potential. If you’re looking to zoom around the map, you’ll want to aim and shoot the grabber using the standard fire button on your platform of choice. Once you have done this, you’ll be able to navigate through terrain that you normally wouldn’t be able to. If you’ve ever used The Grappler in Party Royale, or elsewhere, it’s a very similar weapon, that will allow you to make your way just about anywhere in a matter of moments.

Lastly, since this is a weapon that offers no offensive capabilities, you’ll need to make sure that you’re able to escape if things get a bit sticky. That’s where the boost feature comes into play, as you’ll just be able to hit a button and put the rubber to the road, or in this case, the glass casing to the road. You’ll be able to make a quick getaway by strategically using the boost function so you’ll be able to avoid harm and still use this vehicle to explore the world at your leisure.

If you’re looking to play around with the Baller, the fastest way to get your hands on one of these vehicles is going to be in Rave Cave, where you and your squad can literally roll out in these fun vehicles. Just make sure that you’ve prepared and gathered some weapons first before you make your way out on the road with these since as we stated before, the Baller offers no offensive weaponry. However, you’ll be able to take these down the new rollercoaster area that was added to the map, letting you have a bit of fun before you need to take part in a firefight.

And that’s the best way to use the Baller in Fortnite! You’ll be able to scale up mountainsides with these, so make sure that you’re ready to explore, but make sure you’ve also got a plan once they run out of fuel because they cannot be recharged this time around.
