Glider Re-Deploy

Epic Games announced a few days ago that they’ll be testing the Glider Re-Deploy feature out in the Battle Royale game mode for one week. Epic Games want to make sure that the impact on gameplay is not affected by the Glider Re-deploy mechanic and if it is, to what extent.

The Glider Re-Deploy mechanic works the same as soaring 50s LTM, Once you reach a high of three stories or more you can jump and re-deploy your glider.
