You can also deploy the glider mid-match after being launched from a Launch Pad.

Strategy Guide/Tips[edit]

  • The Glider will deploy automatically once you get close enough to the ground.
  • As long as you are not close to the ground yet, you can switch between gliding and Skydiving at any time.
  • It is best to Skydive for as long as possible, as Skydiving is faster than gliding, and it will get you to the landing point quicker.

You can redeploy your glider if you obtain a launch pad or rift and use it

Glider Skins[edit]

You can buy different types of Glider Skins in the Cash Shop, or the Season Shop, using V-bucks.

These can be equipped in the Locker, along with all of your other customization options.
