Fortnite’s Season 6 update introduced a number of new animals on the battle royale map, though chickens might be the most important. Players have quickly discovered a way to fly across the map with them and we’ve got a simple guide for you.

Dexerto says “With dozens of new NPCs now appearing on the map, it can be tough to figure out which are important. Among the new AI-controlled characters are three types of animals. Boars, wolves, and chickens are now in Fortnite and the latter could just change how you play the game. Chickens might seem like a lackluster addition at first glance, though they’re capable of huge plays in the right hands. With these feathered companions, you can rotate across the entire map in no time at all. Here’s how.”

Using chickens to fly in Fortnite Season 6

When you spot a chicken in the wild, first is to grab a hold of it. They’ll run away and change directions to try and throw you off. If you’re fast enough, you will be able to get ahold of one.

When you have a chicken over your head, you will then realize that the chicken lets you jump higher and move faster around the map.


“While this is one way of using chickens to your advantage, there’s a far more powerful tactic that can send you flying across the map. All you need to do is grab a chicken and find yourself a launch pad at one of six Guardian Spires.”

  1. Locate a chicken in the wild areas of The Island.
  2. Chase after the chicken and grab it.
  3. Head to a launch pad on one of six Guardian Spires around the map.
  4. Boost off the launch pad and use the chicken to glide through the sky.

Using this new trick, it will get you the furthest distance than just about any other way in Fortnite. When you are in a tough spot or you notice the storm coming in, this could be a good way to get out of those situations.
