Slipstreams Fortnite: How to Ride
Starting to ride a Fortnite Slipstream is as simple as jumping into the wind tunnel effect and letting it carry you off. There are specially placed entrances around the map, but they aren't necessary provided you can get up high enough to reach the tunnel through other means.
While in the Slipstream players are unable to shoot or use items. To turn around in the stream only takes turning the camera around. Exiting is just as simple, requiring angling the camera and moving out of the tunnel to be shot through the air.
Slipstreams Fortnite: Where to Find Them
The Slipstreams tunnel run in a circuit that ranges from Mega Mall in the east, to the mountain southwest of Fatal Fields in the south, to Neo Tilted in the west, and up past Loot Lake in the north.
There are also smaller loops for individual areas on the map — one each around Mega Mall and Neo Tilted.
Slipstreams are available to test out now in Fortnite Season 9.
