— In-Game Description

Drift is a Legendary Outfit In Fortnite: Battle Royale that could be obtained in the Season 5 Battle Pass at Tier 1. Drift is part of the Drift Set.

Lore

Drift was an ordinary human from California in the "real life" world. In Season 4, when the metal Durr Burger teleported to California, he visited the burger to spray graffiti art of a Kitsune mask in a pink hood. 

It so happens that at that moment, another Rift brought both the burger and Drift back to the battle royale universe. Drift was greeted by Brite BomberRex, Cuddle Team Leader, and a few other people who were on a road trip. Drift seemed to gain paranormal powers related to the Rifts, visible in his cloak and harvesting tool. He followed the others along on their road trip, and became friends with Brite Bomber. They visited several locations across the island. In Season X, Drift gained a female counterpart from an alternate timeline, called Catalyst.

Years after Season 5, either before or after The End event in Season X, he was seen hugging Brite Bomber and a pet Bonesy, watching the sun set on a now lost universe in the Last Stop Loading Screen

In Chapter 2, Drift, Catalyst and Vi joined together to create the Fox Clan.

Trivia

  • During Season 5, there was a series of Loading Screens that featured Drift, Brite Bomber, Cuddle Team Leader, and Rex going on a road trip through various locations across the island.
  • Drift is one of the most popular, well-known and recognized Outfits in Fortnite.
  • His cloak in the 4th and 5th stages has a symbol known as a "Torri", which is a gateway between worlds. This is probably there since he traveled from the real world to the Fortnite world.
  • He has 2 fish counterparts, the Drift Hop Flopper, and the Drift Spicy Fish.
  • He is a character not from The Loop, he is here because a Rift took him here.
  • He seemed to have a special relationship with Brite Bomber, based on multiple loading screens during Season 5. Although, that seemed to have ended since in the Chapter 2: Season 2 trailer, there was a heart drawn in a tree with "BB + Drift" written on it, but "Drift" was crossed out.
  • Epic Games made a Easter Egg in Season 5 for a player named Chappadoodle wearing Drift. Muselk was trying to save the player, but accidentally knocked the player into the ocean with an ATK. This resulted in a gravestone for Chappadoodle, and some tires so no player would be stuck at the bottom of the map again.
