​Fortnite Battle Royale Introduces Rift-To-Go As New In-Game Item

Epic Games has revealed a brand new Battle Royale item which is set to come with Fortnite's next update, and it's based around teleportation.

Anyway, they allow your character to transport high into the sky so that you can either evade you enemy, get the better of them, or simply get to another location easier.

For the first time, this new item will allow Fortnite players to shoot themselves into the air without needing to build or place down various pads.

It will be great for when the storm is closing in, however, but in terms on combat it might be useless. If only you could shoot from you glider...

What do you think about this news? Are you looking forward to this new item? Do you think it's a bad idea? Make sure you let us know.
