Fortnite saw the return of X-4 Stormwing planes with the Operation Snowdown holiday event. Despite that now being over, some of these planes are still available on the map, but a change compared to their original launch has rendered them far less attractive
They no longer have infinite fuel. They, like cars and boats, have to get filled up at a gas station (or with a gas canister) after a short time behind the wheel. One boost in the plane eats nearly a quarter tank of gas.
“I wouldn’t even mind the fueling so much if it was actually possible to land the damn plane at a gas station,” said Redditor NickEggPlant in a thread about the planes. “The plane was actually fuel efficient instead of burning through a full tank in 30 seconds.”
