Fortnite Season OG has brought back a nostalgic favorite – the X-4 Stormwing planes from Chapter 1 Season 7. Now, players can once again experience the thrill of flying across the island, engaging in aerial battles, and exploring the newly introduced snow biome. This guide will provide players with everything they need to know about the X-4 Stormwings, from where to find them to mastering their controls.
Where to Find X-4 Stormwings
The X-4 Stormwings made their return to Fortnite with the v27.10 update on November 16, 2023, and are expected to be available until the end of Season OG. While plane spawn locations are scattered throughout the Chapter 1 map, players have a higher chance of finding one if they head to Frosty Flights. Frosty Flights is located on the southwestern part of the map, north of Snooby Shores. Here are all the possible X-4 Stormwing spawn locations:
- Frosty Flights
- Various locations around the Chapter 1 map
How to Control a Plane in Fortnite
Once players have secured an X-4 Stormwing, mastering its controls is crucial for effective maneuvering and engaging in aerial combat. Here are the default control options for the X-4 Stormwing:
- Start Engine
- Roll Left
- Roll Right
- Switch Seat
Players can customize these controls by accessing Keyboard Controls in Settings and adjusting the X-4 Stormwing keybinds. Keep in mind that controller players will have more restricted options, as the buttons are bound to Combat and Building controls.
It’s important to note that only one player can control the X-4 Stormwing, but up to four other players can hop on its wings and tail for a thrilling ride. However, caution is advised when exiting the plane, as it lacks a hop rock effect. Without Gliders, players risk elimination due to fall damage.
