An anonymous source tipped off FortniteNews that all of the vehicles in the game will be changed in a very noticeable way. It is unclear what the exact changes will be and when will they be implemented, but it is possible that they will be coming with the v8.30 update.
It is most probably going to be a change to handling and controls, but another possibility is that vehicles will have limited fuel. Limiting vehicles to fuel is something that was discussed multiple times by the player base.
The source claims that besides being very noticeable, and that players will have to get accustomed to the changes and that Epic is considering a way to test them and practice in Creative mode.
With how close this change is to the qualifiers for the world cup, pro players are guaranteed to be unhappy. The previous few changes already angered pro players and using the Baller near the end of the match has become a pretty big thing in the meta. So making a “noticeable” change that will require extra practice maybe shouldn’t be made just before the qualifiers.
