It is time, folks. If you have been waiting oh so patiently for the Fortnite Jetpack to be introduced, then you are in the right place. We are going to go over whether or not the Jetpack is real and if it is when it will release, how to use it, and so much more. With so much to cover regarding the Jetpack, let's go ahead and get started right now.

Fortnite Jetpack: Is It Real?

Happy day, indeed! The Fortnite Jetpack is really real, and you will get to use it real soon in Battle Royale. The jet-powered backpack that allows you to soar high above your foes is indeed coming to the game and pretty soon to boot.

Fortnite Jetpack Release Date

But when is the Fortnite Jetpack release date? Well, the answer to that question is very, very soon. After months and months of rumors, leaks, and even datamines, we now officially know that it is releasing tomorrow, May 22nd, 2018 alongside this week's update at 8 am ET, 5 am PT. In that V4.2 update, we will finally get the chance to lift off with our very own Jetpack.

How to Use Fortnite Jetpack

But how do you use the Fortnite Jetpack? You are in the right place. First and foremost, you must find the item somewhere on the Battle Royale map like you would normally expect from an item. Picking up and equipping the Jetpack will allow you to soar above your enemies using some simple button inputs.

While you have the Fortnite Jetpack equipped, you can use it by simply double tapping the jump button on your respective platform. This will make you lift off into the skies. Hold down the jump button while in the air to keep flying around, but be careful. The Fortnite Jetpack does a limited amount of fuel so make sure to land before you fall to your death.
