The inflate-a-bull is now in Fortnite. How exactly does it work? First gameplay and official trailer

As announced, a new item has already been added to the game – Inflate-a-bull.

The new item has already entered Fortnite. Epic itself writes about it:

“With an Inflate-A-Bull on your back, inflate it to bounce or roll away from a dangerous situation. (Tip: Rolling downhill with an Inflate-A-Bull is a LOT faster than just running downhill.) You can also inflate it to squash a Parasite that’s attached to you, if you’re not looking for its help. The “Bull” may attract the attention of Saucers when inflated, but its evasive advantages are worth it.”

The inflate-a-bull is not indestructible: it will be pierced when hit. (Luckily, he’ll take the shot for you.) After the piercing, it’ll take a while to get repaired and ready to go. However, if you choose to deflate it manually, it will be ready to use again much faster.

Like the reconnaissance scanner, this invention was placed in UR and regular crates. On its usage bar, you can keep track of how many Inflatable Bulls you can still use.

At first glance, it looks quite interesting. The question is how it will work in practice.
