Upcoming “Broom Box” item found by Fortnite dataminers may include a new traversal option.
Although the Marvel Knockout Super Series just started, Fortnite players are already looking forward to all the Halloween-themed content on the way with the upcoming Fortnitemares event. Earlier this week, data miners discovered a bunch of upcoming spooky cosmetics.
Fortnite leaker HYPEX also suggests that Brooms might be coming to Fortnite as a traversal option. The reputable leaker found a consumable codenamed “Wbroom” along with a loot box called “Broom Box” within the game’s files.
We might get Brooms as mobility in this fortnitemares..

Twitter users suggest that Brooms might function similarly to how Lightsabers did. Presumably, Broom Boxes will be where you’ll find the Broom consumable — which will allow you to travel using a Broom. Others have theorized that Brooms might have both traversal and combat abilities.

As additional evidence, FNBRUnreleased has also leaked an upcoming emote. The emote, titled “Witch Way”, allows the player to float around on a broom. Of course, this is just an emote — expect the actual Broom consumable to look and function a bit differently.
The Fortnite Marvel Knockout Super Series kicked off on Oct. 14, and Epic Games confirmed on Reddit that the Fortnitemares Halloween Event is coming soon.
