Epic regularly unvaults cosmetics, weapons, and skins from previous Fortnite seasons to bring back fan-favorite items and keep content fresh. In Chapter 5, Season 1, Epic unvaulted various items, from the controversial Lock On Pistol to the Crash Pad Jr. The Crash Pad Jr is a utility item designed as a more advanced version of the Crash Pad. It works to protect players from fall damage when they jump off high ground while escaping enemies.
The Crash Pad Jr holds up the potential to shake up the Battle Royale, despite many considering it an almost useless item. When players toss a Crash Pad Jr, it opens up to become a blown-up cushioned surface that softens a player’s landing. With the Crash Pad Jr’s reintroduction to Fortnite Chapter 5, Season 1, players are eager to get their hands on it. Here’s a guide on where you can find it on the map.
Fortnite: Chapter 5 Season 1 Weekly Quests (Week 7)
Here is how players can complete all the weekly quests in Chapter 5 Season 1.
Where to Find a Crash Pad Jr in Fortnite
Players can find the Crash Pad Jr in various locations across the map, including:
- Floor Loot
- Within Chests
- Inside Vaults
There doesn’t seem to be a shortage of Crash Pad Jrs this Fortnite season, as a good number spawns in random locations on the map. Players are guaranteed to find at least one while evading the storm and defeating opponents. Players should pay attention to their surroundings and keep an eye out for Chests and Vaults hidden in cabins and houses. Players can pick up to 5 Crash Pad Jrs, which is more than enough to secure match victories.
How to Use The Crash Pad Jr in Fortnite
There are two ways to use the Crash Pad Jr in Fortnite Chapter 5, Season 1. First, players can press the jump button twice to deploy it. This will trigger it to open below you, allowing you to land safely without taking falling damage. Second, players can throw the Crash Pad Jr in front of them like other throwables to deploy it. Simply click the shoulder button to pick the Crash Pad Jr from your inventory and press the trigger button to throw it.
Players have previously reported experiencing problems with the Crash Pad Jr after deploying it. Most would fall right through the pad and take significant fall damage. However, Epic has fixed this bug, ensuring players land on the pad.
