As teased yesterday (opens in new tab), Fortnite's first unlikely vehicle has arrived. Found scattered around the map in various locations, Shopping Carts can be pushed around or ridden as a passenger—both in pairs or on your lonesome. And, yes, players can fire weapons from within the trolley should they desire.  

Shopping Carts are exclusive to Fortnite's Battle Royale variant, and, while they look something like this (opens in new tab) in my mind, they actually look like the following in practice. Thanks to YouTube person Niovo (opens in new tab).

Elsewhere, Battle Royale introduces new UI features that let players track Challenges in-match, and the game's 'Self-Service Cosmetic Returns' feature has been reactivated. Two new limited-time modes enter the BR fold too, by virtue of Blitz! v2 and 20v20 v2. Both events mirror their previous outings—a siege-like, short-storm assault; and a five-teams-of-20 fight to the death—however now have new weapons, items and supply drops.
