If you didn't hate Fortnite's Baller enough already, here's yet another reason why the game's newest vehicle probably isn't long for this world.
Epic is always working on ways to adapt and improve Fortnite. It's why we continue to play the game, and millions more continue to flock to it. Many of the game's changes revolve around trying to make it more competitive, especially as rounds reach the latter stages. We can't simply have everyone hiding as they await the storm now, can we?
Enter Storm Surge damage. We all know that if you get caught up in Fortnite's storm, your health will slowly but surely be depleted. However, if you decide to simply run from the storm and not seek out conflict, you might be dealt damage by the storm before it has even engulfed you. Should a round reach its latter stages and too many players remain, those who have inflicted the least damage will be struck and affected by Storm Surges.
As much as this change may have enraged the hiders among you, we quite like it. Fortnite is a battle royale game based around conflict, not one rooted in hide-and-seek. However. Redditor CoreGaminggTwitch has found a loophole. As you can see from this video, if you happen to be inside one of Fortnite's Ballers, you will be immune to the game's storm surges.
By posting the video, CoreGaminggTwitch has exposed themselves as being a player who had little impact on the round. Hopefully, he or she doesn't always have minimal effect on the island.
What this clip also does is give players yet another reason to hate the Baller. It is already incredibly unpopular, and this might be the best reason to get rid of it to date.
Fortnite players have been complaining about the Baller due to how fast it moves, the way in which it bounces, and its ability to destroy builds while protecting its driver. Plus, just to make a bad situation even worse, the Storm Surges also don't damage the Baller. This means that ineffective players can sit inside and wait for the action to arrive at their door.
