Are you annoyed with shooting a plane down only to have the pilot and its passengers redeploy onto you and commence the building of your personal burial site? Well, that annoyance is nearing its end. A user by the name of Nekrospike on Twitter tagged Eric Williamson, Design Lead for Fortnite Battle Royale at Epic Games, asking if there were any plans on implementing a negative effect of being shot down in a plane.
Fortunately enough, Eric responded and mentioned that passenger-damage upon plane destruction was being discussed with the team, and that the team was still determining exactly what numbers seemed fair.
We can most likely expect this downfall of plane destruction to be implemented within the coming weeks, once a specific amount of damage is set in stone. When we have an update for this topic, we’ll be sure to let you know.
