Driftboard How-to Use/Controls

Jump on these like you would with any other vehicle in Fortnite! You will need to hold the button to get off of it, but you can control it with your standard movement keys. You can boost with the default sprint key, which is L-Shift on PC. Jumping requires that you hold your chosen jump key.

Fortnite Driftboard Tips & Tricks

The driftboard has some unique features that make it different from other vehicles in the game. For instance, you can hover over water with it, which is handy for crossing water bodies. Moreover, you can shoot your weapons while on the driftboard, giving you an edge in combat.

However, you cannot build structures on the driftboard, which reduces your defense. In addition, you can revive your teammates on the driftboard, but this is risky since you have no cover. Another great feature of the driftboard is that it protects you from fall damage. For example, you can boost off high places and land safely without losing any health or damage, similar to the Quadcrasher.

Here are some tips and tricks to use Driftboard in Fortnite OG:

  1. These are actually pretty slow if you aren't boosting it so you'll want to boost often. The positive is that the boost is pretty quick to recharge.
  2. The boost charge is displayed on the back of the board. You can boost when it turns green. The board is not fully charged when you jump onto it, but will start charging immediately after you've attached yourself to it. If you exit the board, it will immediately lose its charge.
  3. You can do tricks pretty much the same way you do them with any other vehicle. To do a back-flip you hold back, front-flips you hold forward, and to spin you hold left or right.
  4. You can't build while you are on the board, which means you are going to get obliterated if anyone starts firing at you.
  5. You can fire your weapons or use consumables while on the board. You can also loot, harvest, and revive teammates while on the board.
