At this time of writing, you cannot currently customise the controls for cars like you would other vehicles, but that will likely come further down the line. Don’t forget that you will need to refuel often if you want to keep driving along to the game’s new radio stations.

Fortnite: Chapter 2 – Season 3 is free-to-play on PC via the Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android.
