I found a buggy vehicle earlier during a game in the latest version 5 release of Fortnite.


It seems to move quickly (quicker than players running I think), can it outrun the storm (assuming a straight course with no obsticles)?

    The storm doesn't have a constant speed. It is a circle shrinking into a smaller circle centered on a different spot, so its speed will vary depending on how close the edge is to the new center. Commented Jul 12, 2018 at 15:14
  • So it is impossible to tell what the maximum speed of the storm is? @DanmakuGrazer

    Yup. Its impossible. Sometimes its faster, and sometimes its slower

    Im more than sure it can out run players. It can even damage them if you bump a player with the buggy.

    I think it depends on speed. Faster speeds (Like after you make a drift) will cause more damage. I will continue to investigate.

Explaining all of the comments in one answer, ATKs can outrun certain storms. They do move faster than players and will be able to outrun most storms.
This does not mean that you will be able to outrun a storm from Lazy Links to get to a circle at Dusty Divot. If the circle is centered around somewhere like Fatal Fields, or - even worse - further east or west, you will probably take some damage from the storm because you're trying to go half of the map all the way to Dusty Divot.


It can outrun most storms depending on the circle's position and if you're still at one side of the map.
