A Fortnite dataminer has discovered that Jetpacks have been unvaulted in Fortnite Chapter 3: Season 2. Here's what you need to know.

The battle is raging on between the Resistance and the Imagined Order, taking the fight to Condo Canyon where the two forces struggle for control. With a number of weapons and features at their disposal, players have seemingly been treated to one more tactical advantage - Jetpacks.

According to known Fortnite dataminer Shiina, Jetpacks have made their way back to the island. Thanks to the latest map update, that seems to have been proven true. Jetpacks rarely need any explaining, but just in case: these little equipables will help players gain some vertical ground, particularly useful in the wake of Zero Build mode.

So, just where can players get their hands on the Jetpack?

Where to Find Jetpacks in Fortnite Chapter 3: Season 2

Unlike most added equipment in Fortnite, the Jetpack won't be available everywhere. Instead, players will need to head to an IO blimps floating above certain POIs. Your best bet is to head to either: Condo Canyon, Rocky Reels, Tilted Towers, Command Cavern, or Coney Crossroads.

Zip up into a blimp and head inside through an entrance. Look to the walls to see a Jetpack neatly stored there. Interact with it to pick it up and add it to your arsenal.

Players will be able to travel vertically, and even strafe side-to-side, giving players some extra mobility on the field. Once the Jetpack is equipped, it is always active meaning players can utilize it at anytime.
