Fortnite Launch Pads were unvaulted in non-competitive playlists Wednesday in Fortnite Patch 11.50.

Fortnite Patch 11.50 wasn't a major patch in terms of new content. Love and War, a special in-game event surrounding a community-made Search and Destroy limited time mode, went live alongside other bug fixes.

Launch Pads coming back is a welcomed change for those who missed the added mobility they provided.

Launch Pads are an epic item that go into a player's trap slot. They can be placed down on flat surfaces. Once placed, stepping on a Launch Pad will launch a player into the air simulating a parachute scenario from dropping out of the battle bus.

The height achieved depends on the elevation a player hits a Launch pad from. If the surface underneath the Launch Pad is broken, the pad is also destroyed.

Remember, the Launch Pad is only unvaulted in non-competitive Fortnite playlists.
