The Glider is a Battle Royale item that the player uses while jumping off the Battle Bus. When using a Launch Pad, the player can reactivate the Glider to avoid fall damage. The Glider cannot be reactivated when simply jumping from a high location— only the Launch Pad allows players to reuse the Glider during a match.

Use[edit | edit source]

  • The Glider can be deployed after jumping off the Battle Bus or using a Launch Pad by pressing space (X on PlayStation 4, A on Xbox One), while Skydiving.
  • The Glider lets the player glide slowly and with more control, as opposed to Skydiving.
  • The Glider will deploy automatically once the player get close enough to the ground.
  • As long as the player is not too close to the ground, it can be switched between gliding and Skydiving at any time.
  • However, gliding and skydiving can't be switched if the glider has automatically deployed, even if the ground beneath gets lower.
  • It is best to Skydive for as long as possible, as Skydiving is faster than gliding, and it will get the player to the landing point quicker.
