Fortnite developer Epic Games didn’t intend for players to be able to ride rockets fired from a rocket launcher, until the developer saw it happen.
Of all the weird things in Fortnite, rocket riding has to take the cake. Epic games may have envisioned certain gameplay scenarios ensuing when designing the game’s many tools, but not the rocket launcher.
The weapon was simply made to destroy forts, which it does. It wasn’t until one player decided to try and see if they can ride the rocket, since it’s represented in the world, that Epic realised there’s more to some of Fortnite’s weapons than meets the eye.
Who's to say. I'll say that we didn't know you could ride on the rocket until someone did it last year. WHO KNOWS WHAT COULD HAPPEN NEXT
