A few months ago Epic Games announced that a Jetpack would be coming to Fortnite soon, however, a few days after the announcement, the company revealed that its release would be delayed for an unknown amount of time. Now, finally, after almost three months of waiting, players are finally able to get their hands on the item.

Unfortunately, there are a couple downsides to The Jetpack, as it’s available only in the Legendary rarity and it does take up one of the main slots in your inventory. That being said, all players have to do to activate it is press the X button after jumping and hold it down.

To celebrate the long-anticipated release of the item, Epic Games revealed a new trailer, which of course shows off the Jetpack in action. You can, as always, check out the trailer at the end of the article.

Fortnite was released last year and is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC, as well as iOS and Android devices.
