After months of teasing, vehicle modifications have finally arrived in Fortnite Season 6, allowing players to upgrade cars with add-ons like off-road tires for an improved driving experience.
Dexerto says “Season 6 of Epic Games’ mega-popular battle royale Fortnite debuted in March 2021 with a bang, introducing a number of new features including weapon crafting, wild animals that can be tamed, and Guardian boss fights. Eagle-eyed fans were also quick to notice that modified vehicles appeared in trailers for the new season – something that had been teased by leakers for a while – although they weren’t present in the game when Season 6 was released.
