Modding your vehicles in Fortnite Chapter 3 can be great for efficiently traversing the map and getting a good position. For those that are unaware of how it works, here’s everything you need to know.

Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 has quickly won over fans with its various new additions, including the Zero Build mode, Ranger Shotgun, and some new cosmetics up for grabs in the Fortnite Lantern Trials.

Since its introduction, players have been taking advantage of the modding system to enhance their mobility when traversing the Fortnite map. They have also popped up in a few Chapter 3, Season 2 challenges as well.

Having said that, some are still unsure of how modding works, so let’s get into the details.

How to mod a vehicle in Fortnite

In order to mod a vehicle in Fortnite, players must first find a vehicle mod on the map. These can be found in various places but are generally found as part of floor loot and within the Garage buildings on the map.

After finding a mod, you can then apply it to your vehicle by equipping the mod and throwing it at the vehicle. Whether it’s Chonkers Tires or a Cow Catcher, either one counts as a vehicle mod.

Here’s a step by step guide:

  • Find a garage on the map that contains a vehicle.
  • Now, look around the garage for a vehicle mod.
  • If you see one, pick it up to add it to your inventory, if you don’t, keep trying other garages and chests.
  • Select the mod from your inventory so that your character is holding it.
  • Hold aim and throw the mod directly at the vehicle.
  • This should place the vehicle mod on the car.

In order to acquire the Fortnite Prowler skin, players must complete a variety of challenges, one of which is to mod a vehicle:

  • Mod a vehicle, then drive it 500 meters in a single match.

This is one of the main reasons players will be wanting to find out how to mod a vehicle in Fortnite, as they try to get their hands on this Prowler skin. In order to complete this challenge, you may want to use the Chonkers Tires mod, as they are arguably the best.

What do Chonkers Tires do in Fortnite?

The first vehicle mods that were released in Fortnite were the Chonkers Tires, and these let you ride up steep surfaces such as hills. They also provide you with a better grip and bouncy suspension when driving off-road.

These modifications can be found within some new structures that have appeared at various garages around The Island. You’ll be able to acquire at least one of these tires by visiting any of the various gas stations.

That’s all there is to it! Now, you’ll be able to enjoy traveling off-road and up steep surfaces such as hills with relative ease. Remember these aren’t the only vehicle mods available, as players can also use the Cow Catcher vehicle mod to complete challenges and improve their mode of transport.
