See for yourself what this brand-new Vehicle is all about as we review where to find and how to use the Fortnite Octane.

For the time being, the Fortnite Octane Vehicle is only available in Creative Mode. To get a Fortnite Octane, you must use an Octane Spawner Device. Alternatively, you can join in on a preexisting Island that uses Octane Spawners, like Rocket League's Octane Park Tutorial (Island Code: 7335-2078-5523).

The Octane is unlike any vehicle ever seen in Fortnite. Surprisingly, the Fortnite Octane functions quite similarly to how it does in Rocket League. The Octane is lightweight and can rocket boost, jump, and manoeuvre in the air, plus drive on walls with its Sticky Wheels.

Below is a list of the Fortnite Octane's full capabilities:

  • Jump: Press the Jump button once to make the Octane jump. Hold the button to jump higher.
  • Double Jump: Press the Jump button twice for a double jump.
  • Drift: Use the handbrake to drift and make sharp turns.
  • Air Yaw: While in mid-air, steer left and right to control air rotation.
  • Air Roll: While in mid-air, press and hold Toggle Air Roll while steering left and right to control air roll.
  • Air Pitch: While in mid-air, pitch forward or back while mid-air to control air pitch.
  • Dodge: Jump, and while rotating the Octane, press Jump again to Dodge in any direction.
  • Reverse Camera: Hold Reverse Camera to look behind you.
  • Toggle Camera: Toggle the camera to switch between free-look and swivel camera controls.
  • Boost: Boost is a unique resource that allows the Octane to drive faster and fly.
  • Aerials: After pressing the Jump button, pitch back, then hold the boost button to fly in the air!
