Fortnite is a game with endless possibilities. If it can be dreamt, it can be implemented in-game. This has allowed developers to add in some weird and wacky gizmos over the years.
However, they outdid themselves in Chapter 2 Season 6, with the introduction of vehicle mods. Although only a tire mod was introduced to the game, the mechanics now exist. This can be expanded upon to incorporate numerous other vehicle mods in the future.
Fortnite Chapter 3: What vehicle mods would players fancy?
5) Vehicle shield
Shields are great in Fortnite. They absorb damage from projectiles. Without them, gunfights will end a lot sooner than they do now. Which brings up the question, "If players can have shields, then why can't vehicles?"
Shields would work amazingly for vehicles. It would enable cars to soak up a lot more damage before being destroyed. Additionally, players within the vehicle won't take damage from gunfire. However, they could still take fire and fall damage.
4) Harpoon gun
The harpoon in Fortnite allows players to catch fish in a jiffy. It can also be used during combat. Even though it's rather tricky to aim and shoot, it can be lethal if done correctly.
Turning this into a vehicle mod would be highly beneficial. It could be used to destroy enemy defences and yank opponents towards the vehicle. Additionally, it could even be used for a bit of fishing now and then.
3) Mounted turret
Stationary turrets play a huge role in Chapter 2 Season 8. If used correctly, players can mow down an entire team with ease. However, they have one limitation - lack of mobility. Once an opponent is out of range, turrets become useless.
This being the case, why not have a turret mod for vehicles? While it won't be as powerful as fixed turrets, players can use them to rush the enemy's defences or provide fire support.
2) Additional armour
Vehicles don't offer much protection from heavy projectiles. Players can still take damage, and tires can be shot off. Eventually, there are only two options left - get out of the vehicle and build for protection or blow up with it.
This is where an armour mod for vehicles would come in handy. This will enable the vehicle to absorb more damage. Additionally, it could even protect the tires from gunfire.
1) Larger fuel tank
One of the main problems with vehicles is not having enough fuel. Even though players can carry fuel tanks or use gas pumps to top up, it's not a practical solution. This is where the fuel tank mod would come in handy.
Players could fill 2x the normal amount of fuel in the vehicle, enabling it to run longer. Additionally, the vehicle would double as a bomb. It could be rammed into enemy defences and blown up.
