THE PAD RETURNS: Season 5 could bring the return of fan favourite launch pads!

The Launch Pad was a staple in the game from way back in Chapter 1 Season 1 all the way through to Chapter 2.

Over the course of Chapter 2 the Launch Pad has cycled in and out of the game.

But with the map being larger, mobility is more crucial than ever, but Epic Games has seemed to neglect mobility items throughout Chapter 2 in favour of vehicles.

The Launch Pad was specifically added back into the Battle Royale files, Creative has its own files where the Launch Pad has always been.

However, there is a chance that the Launch Pad may just be coming back for an LTM, although the Unvaulted LTM was recently in rotation and they weren't in that.
