Fortnite Season 4, Chapter 4 will soon come to an end, which means that Chapter 5 with a completely new map will go live at the end of 2023. And of course, as with every new chapter, there will also be rad new gameplay features and new movement mechanics, and one or two of them have already been leaked.

That's because the new chapter will introduce "wall running" and "wall kicking" to Fortnite. Here are the details.

"Wall-Running" And "Wall-Kicking" For Fortnite Chapter 5

According to our good friend and Fortnite leaker ShiinaBR, Epic Games is currently testing a so-called "wall-running" and "wall-kicking" mechanic that will be included in the game in Chapter 5. We already know this mechanic from other video games, like the first-person shooter Titanfall.

The feature could look like this or something similar in-game:

Wall-running is a simple concept in video games: players jump against a wall and can then run sideways along the surface. Wall-kicking could allow players to maintain momentum by jumping to the other side with a kick to get a boost.
