Here’s more on the new Launch Pads coming to the game:
Battle Royale Launch Pads: “Prepare your gliders. The Launch Pad trap flings players high into the air and lets you re-deploy your glider mid-match! Traverse the battlefield in style as you soar over any obstacles in your path and surprise your enemies with an aerial assault.
As confirmed by Epic Games, once deployed, the Launch Pad can be triggered by any player and has unlimited uses but It cannot be picked back up and It can be destroyed like any other trap.
