It's been an ultra-exciting start to Chapter 3 Season 2 of Fortnite with Epic Games constantly improving the battle royale. The island has been invaded as different groups are fighting for supremacy. Players will need to fend off IO Forces and some of their new battle equipment as Season 2 progresses.
Popular items and weapons have been unvaulted in recent seasons to change up the state of play and it looks like Chapter 3 Season 2 will continue that trend. Leaks are suggesting that Jetpacks are returning to Fortnite as part of the Chapter 3 Season 2 refresh, catch up on all the details here.
Fortnite Jetpacks are back - Chapter 3 Season 2
In one of the biggest Fortnite developments in recent years, Epic Games removed the building feature from the battle royale after the IO Forces disabled it in the long-running storyline. The major change has certainly affected the state of play, but other tweaks and additions from the game developers have helped create a balance without building, and the early results are very enjoyable.

One of the awesome new additions to offset the removal of building, has been the Mantling feature. Players can now grab onto ledges and pull themselves up to gain higher ground and climb structures. But an upcoming unvaulting will dwarf many of the changes thus far, as leaks are suggesting Jetpacks are coming back to Fortnite.

According to the legendary Fortnite leaker, HYPEX, Jetpacks are set to return in Chapter 3 Season 2 with an updated feature. While there has been no word of the exact unvaulting date, the leaks have revealed Jetpacks will spawn in containers attached to the walls inside IO Blimps.
And as for the tweak, now when players are in the air flying with their Jetpacks, aiming will be steady as the pack will automatically hover. Previously, aiming and shooting were very difficult as the Jetpack would fly in the opposite direction of the aiming.
