The Fortnite community is a little confused about the functionality of the ‘bounce pad’ that supposed to be on the roof of the new All Terrain Kart (ATK).

The ATK was announced by Epic Games as part of the changes for Season 5, and allows for a full squad to drive (or drift) their way around the map.

As you’d expect the first proper vehicle in Fortnite has already been used for a wide variety of tricks and special kills by content creators, resulting in plenty of hilarious clips.

There is, however, one problem with the roof, and the YouTuber by the name of BobbyBoJanglles has expressed his concern.

In the official patch notes, it was promised that the roof would function like a bounce pad, which in theory would allow players to avoid fall damage if they land on it correctly.

It turns out however that jumping onto the roof of the ATK doesn’t bounce you back up at all, and as the clip shows below, can potentially end your round.

A fierce debate has now raged in the Reddit thread about whether it should deal you damage or not, but at the time of writing, there’s been no comment by the developers.


Should you be safe to land on the roof if you jump from a great height? Or should it come at least with a warning in the patch notes?
