X-4 Stormwing is a Vehicle in Fortnite: Battle Royale. It was introduced in Season 7.


The X-4 Stormwing takes a few seconds to start up. There are different controls for how you want to steer the plane. It has a mounted weapon on its front that can be shot by the driver to destroy builds and kill players. Boosting into builds or onto players will destroy or damage players as the plane bumps into them.

If the X-4 Stormwing is shot down to 0 HP, the aircraft instantly explodes, ejecting players inside.

The X-4 Stormwing requires fuel to run, which can be refueled using a Gas Can or Gas Station. If fuel runs out, the aircraft will nosedive to the ground and explode when crashing.
