The Glider is a Fortnite: Battle Royale item that players use while jumping off the Battle Bus.

Use

Players deploy the glider after jumping off the Battle Bus by pressing space (X on PlayStation 4, A on Xbox One, B on Nintendo Switch, Space Bar on PC, Deploy Glider Button on Mobile), while Skydiving.

The Glider lets players fly slowly and with more control, as opposed to Skydiving.

  • The Glider will deploy automatically once close enough to the ground.
  • Players can switch between gliding and Skydiving at any time prior to landing.
  • It is best to Skydive for as long as possible, as Skydiving is faster than gliding, and it will get players to the landing point quicker.

Glider Re-Deploy can be used in larger team modes and the Battle Lab. It only activates the Glider; skydiving will not be available. Outside of the team modes and Battle Lab, players may still redeploy using Launch Pads or Rifts, though the forced redeploy height is 35 meters above the ground when skydiving.

Styles

Several styles are available for the Glider. These have no impact on the Glider's function and are purely cosmetic. They can be purchased in the Item Shop using V-Bucks, earned through various challenges, and getting tiers in the Battle Pass.

Trivia

  • In Season 6, Epic Games tested out Re-Deployable Gliders as a test, they are now a separate item in Fortnite, allowing 10 re-deploys before disappearing.
  • In Chapter 2 - Season 2, Gliders are no longer an inventory item in Team Rumble.
  • In Chapter 2: Season 3, Glider Redeploy returned the game, however, at a low chance, which means to get it, you must be very lucky!
  • As of Chapter 2: Season 4, Glider redeploy is only available in team Rumble.
