Everyone seems to love the Fortnite Baller. The brand-new Fortnite hamster ball vehicle appears to be missing as of writing, however. Is the Fortnite Baller gone? Has the Baller been vaulted? Read on to find out whether or not the Baller has been vaulted in Fortnite, and when it should come back.
Fortnite Baller Gone | Has the Baller been vaulted?
It seems that whenever we get something new and exciting in Fortnite, Epic Games decides to put them away. Put them away for good in the Vault. Rarely do vaulted items reappear. Now, it seems that the Baller has gone. Players returning to the game and known locations of the Baller aren’t finding the hamster ball equipped with a grappler anymore. For the time being, at least, you won’t find the single-seat vehicle in Fortnite.
Supposedly, however, the Baller has not been vaulted. It appears to be temporarily missing from the Fortnite map. Indeed, Epic Games has disabled the Baller vehicle thanks to a “stability issue.” A stability issue could mean anything, however. Players have been reporting a bug that eliminates them as soon as they exit the vehicle. This, along with various movement glitches the Baller features could be the reason why it is temporarily disabled.
We’ve temporarily disabled The Baller while we investigate a stability issue.
We’ll roll out a status update once we know more.

Both of these issues provide solid reasons for Epic Games to temporarily disable the Baller. Hopefully, the fun vehicle isn’t vaulted forever and we’ll see it again soon.
Fortnite Baller Gone | Will the Baller come back?
While Epic Games sending bugged out items to the vault is nothing new, the Baller could genuinely be only temporarily disabled while the developers try to fix it. Epic Games’ tweet on the subject (which you can see above) certainly makes it seem as though the company is planning on re-introducing the vehicle.
Hopefully, the Baller will be back on the Fortnite map as part of the next update, which could see release as early as this week, with Tuesday, March 19 or Thursday, March 21 looking like prime candidates judging by previous update releases.
