A leak revealed that Fortnite’s second rideable glider is in the works along with a new synced emote.
Fortnite Season 2 brought a new cosmetic type to the game: the rideable glider. TNTina’s bomb glider opened the door to a wide range of new options in the glider department, but we’ve yet to see this fully realized.
In fact, a lot of players were disappointed that this was the only rideable glider in the Battle Pass. It’s understandable to expect more by looking at the Season 2 promotional image.
Regardless, it appears as though Epic were content to give us one rideable glider for the season. Of course, theey’re working on more that they will release in the future.
In fact, data miner @Hypex tweeted a leaked rideable glider that should be coming to the game this summer. It will be a surfboard, which fits into the annual summer theme.
The synced emote appears to be a confetti popper, also known as a Christmas popper. Two players will hold one side and pop it together.
A surfing glider is in the works, probably for the summer..
and 2 other Synced emotes too..

The emote might not be anything to write home about, but players are going to eat up this second rideable glider.
Rideable gliders in Fortnite give us a ton of possibilities. Epic could even make some of the existing gliders rideable. Imagine flying into a match on the back of a dragon.
The gray model of the glider is the same thing that we saw when TNTina’s glider was leaked, which is a telltale sign that it will be rideable. Hopefully, this is a part of the Overtime Challenges for the Season 2 Battle Pass.
