X-4 Stormwing Plane Player Fall Damage is Coming
Fortnite Battle Royale Season 7 came with a lot of new additions to the game. However, the most exciting was probably the X-4 Stormwing Plane. This monstrous plane is able to accommodate up to 4 people including the pilot. It also has a machine gun turret mounted on top of it. Players are able to get into dogfights with other planes and also shoot their enemies from above. Furthermore, as a transportation vehicle, it is incredibly useful. You can be at the other end of the circle but If you have a plane you are good to go.
However, players in the game voiced their concerns over the plane. For example, some players say it is too slow. Other players said that it is very hard to control especially on console. This led to another problem. The problem itself is said to be game-breaking. There is no fall damage implemented to X-4 Stormwing. So for example players are in the plane are fighting with some enemies. If you accidentally crash the plane on the ground; the player does not get any damage. Some players are using this as an advantage even. Driving the plane around until the last circle and crash it to an advantageous location. Even If the X-4 Stormwing blows up in the sky the players can easily glide away to a much secure location.
Epic Games: Fall Damage is Coming
Epic Games Fortnite Battle Royale Design Lead Eric Williamson said that ”Yes, we’ve discussed a small amount of damage to passengers when a plane is destroyed. Still determining what amount feels fair”. The update for this damage implement can be expected in the next update probably. As we have discussed about this Season will have plenty of updates.
Some players are taking it to the next level and says that The X-4 Stormwing Plane should be vaulted and it does not belong to the Battle Royale Genre, especially in this form.
