Gliders Item Features & Traits

Open Gliders at Certain Heights

Fortnite Battle Royale Gliders Guide - Tips & Techniques

The Gliders follows the same mechanic as the Gliders deployment feature tested out before. There is a required height from which a player must jump or fall from to be able to open the glider.

Requires an Inventory Slot

Fortnite Battle Royale Gliders Guide - Tips & Techniques

Since the Gliders is an item, it needs to be picked up and added to the players inventory for it to be used. From there you can also check how many charges are left before it disappears.

Activates Automatically

You don't need to select the item in your inventory to use it. Once its in your inventory, you will have the ability to open your gliders!

Limited Amount of Gliders

Fortnite Battle Royale Gliders Guide - Tips & Techniques

The item has charges that dictates the amount of time a player can use their gliders. Every time a player opens their glider, it takes up a charge. The item will disappear from the inventory once all the charges are used.

Specific LTMs Give Gliders with 50 Charges

Fortnite Battle Royale Gliders Guide - Tips & Techniques

For some large team modes and LTMs with a focus on glider redeployment, a Gliders item will be given to the player at the start of the match. This Gliders item is different as it has 50 charges!

Skydiving Mode Not Counted for Charges

Using the Launch Pad, Rift-To-Go, and respawning in certain LTMs does not consume Gliders charges. This is because they put you in Skydiving mode, akin to when you jump off the Battle Bus.

Tips on Using the Gliders

Build to Create Enough Height to Jump Off

Fortnite Battle Royale Gliders Guide - Tips & Techniques

No need to climb mountains or hills to deploy your glider. You can create your own high ground to have something to jump off of and deploy your glider.

Use Air Mobility to Ambush Enemies

Fortnite Battle Royale Gliders Guide - Tips & Techniques

Take to the air and maneuver around enemies to get the jump on them. This is very effective against enemies holed up in their forts.

Catch Up to the Safe Zone via the Air

Your Glider will allow you to travel farther and faster compared to being on foot. Use this to get to the safe zone! It's also less conspicuous than using vehicles like planes and ATKs.
