It appears at least three upcoming Fortnite movement mechanics have been leaked.
Over the last five years, one of the areas that Fortnite players have seen the most change in has been its movement. From the addition of Swimming in Chapter 2 Season 1 to Hurdling in Chapter 4 Season 1, Epic Games has not been shy in expanding the ways in which players can position themselves to win fights.
Thanks to a recent leak, it appears that pattern certainly isn't going to change anytime soon.
According to prominent Fortnite leaker @Hypex on Twitter Monday, it appears the following movement mechanics will be coming soon to the ever-popular battle royale:
- Wall Running
- Jump Sliding
- Double Jumping
As briefly discussed earlier, players currently have 14 standard states of motion in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1:
- Crouch Running
- Swim Sprinting
- Swim Jumping
Ultimately, it's not hard to imagine all three of these supposed leaked movement mechanics coming to the game soon. Of the three, perhaps Double Jumping would be the most game-changing, which is why Hypex speculates it could be an upcoming Reality Augments.
Hypex didn't mention when any of these three could be officially unveiled in-game, so it will be interesting to see just when Epic decides to do so, considering they already seem to be in the game files.
