When Epic Games introduced Ghost Rider to Fortnite as part of the Marvel crossover, they also added his fiery bike as a glider. The glider was available as a part of the Ghost Rider bundle in Season 2 Chapter 4, which also included the character’s skin.

The first-ever epic rarity ridable glider in Fortnite came to the item shop for 1200 V-Bucks. It was a neon glow sting ray that players could ride on top of after jumping from the Battle Bus. The glider looks extremely attractive due to the intricate detailing and the color combination.
