Worth noting is the possibility that the Bumble isn't any sort of flying or air vehicle at all. With that said, at least according to the leaked update files (via FortniteNews), it is most certainly a vehicle of some sort, and ought to be landing in Fortnite very soon.
In addition to information about the Bumble, the latest v6.22 patch notes also indicate the availability of several new cosmetic items, many of which are based on the previously teased NFL uniforms. As reported by FortniteNews, these include the Strong Guard, Spike, Juke, Gridiron, Rush, and Interceptor outfits. Also are among the list are three robot-themed cosmetics, including the A.I.M. skin, E.L.I.M. backpack, and A.X.E pickaxe.
