The controversial Baller vehicle may be making a comeback in Fortnite very soon.

The Baller used to be a largely hated vehicle in Fortnite that competitive players found to be a bit overpowered. It offered incredible mobility and gave players a huge advantage during rotation while also protecting players from incoming damage. Pros have spoken out about their hatred of the Baller in the past. Since then, the Baller rarely spawns on the map.

But Epic is never afraid to defy what the esports community wants. A mech known as the B.R.U.T.E. was another point of frustration for high-level players, but Epic was adamant that it remained in-game, even in tournaments, since it gave new players a chance to get a kill. Now, the Baller may be returning.

Is the Baller vehicle getting an event in Fortnite?

Official Fortnite social media accounts have started hinting at a Baller-related event. The French Fortnite Twitter account asked fans, “Would you like a little bubble ride this weekend?” The Fortnite Middle East account hinted that “Ball Vehicle Madness” is coming soon.

This could mean that a Baller-related event is coming this weekend, maybe Sunday. If Ballers return in full force, it will most likely be for challenges that require a Baller in some way. Ballers could possibly start spawning at a higher rate as well.

For now, this is just speculation based on hints from Fortnite Twitter accounts. It’s not totally clear how Ballers will play a part in the upcoming event, if there is to be one.

Where to find Ballers in Fortnite

Until there is a possible update to the Baller in the near future, Ballers can be found inside the Rave Cave. This is a new POI that is on the western side of the island introduced in Chapter 3 Season 3.

Ballers are often destroyed at the beginning of the game so you’ll want to head over there quickly. Follow the Ballercoaster track in the area. The pink track will lead you to a platform full of Ballers. Use the Baller to roll on the Screwballer rollercoaster tracks.

Keep in mind that Ballers do run out of fuel after a short period of time and they can’t be refueled.
