X-4 Stormwing is a flying vehicle in Battle Royale that has been vaulted in Season 8. It is a fighter plane with 5 total seats that can fit 4 passengers (on the wings) and a pilot. It has a boost, airbrake for extra mobility and mounted machine gun that overheats when fully used. When exiting the X-4 Stormwing, players will go into the skydiving state. The X-4 Stormwing is about 4 times faster than sprinting, making it the fastest form of transportation in the game.

The X-4 Stormwing was vaulted on Patch 8.00 making it only available through spawners in Creative Mode and the Air Royale LTM. This was vaulted due to it being one of the most powerful items in the game, flying in a plane for the whole match with a turret, a tanky amount of health, and 5 seats. This was one of the most hated items in the game.

Additionally, one X-4 Stormwing can be found in the hidden hangar under the Mansion (POI) and another at the new farm airstrip near The Block.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The X-4 Stormwing was one of the first vehicles to be vaulted at the start of Season 8.[1]
  • There are leaked files showing that the X-4 Stormwing has a possibility to return in the future.
  • A X-4 Stormwing can be seen on one of the monitors in a Loot Lake government facility. It also appeared inside one of the crystals in the In-Between during the Unvaulting event. However it was not unvaulted, and the Drum Gun was instead.
