Fortnite players have figured out how to fly around the map in a boat as they wait for the launch of Chapter 2 Season 3. With most players stewing in their own anticipation of the new season after rushing to finish all of their challenges by the original June 6 release date, they've gotten to experiment and invent a good bit. This time, they've figured out how to fly a boat around the map.

Who knows what item changes will be made in the new season. It's possible helicopters or boats are vaulted and this trick won't work, so if you want to give it a try, make sure you get on it within the next few days.

In a clip posted to Reddit by u/DPR0bot, a few player are set up in the boat with another in the helicopter. Now, it's a bit hard to notice how exactly they're making this happen, but this is how they manage to "fly" a boat.

You'll need at least three players, so jump into Squads and immediately locate a helicopter, a boat, and a Grappler. Without all three of these items, you won't be able to pull off this trick. Throw one person in the driver's seat of the helicopter, another in the boat, and then one in the back of the boat with the Grappler.

The person in the helicopter needs to take off and move fairly quickly as the person in the back of the boat stands up and shoots the Grappler at the helicopter. Once it connects, immediately sit down so the boat jerks forward rather than the player. Repeat this over and over and the boat will "fly" alongside the helicopter.
