The Motorboat is a water vehicle released with the start of Chapter 2 - Season 1 of Battle Royale. They have 800 health and can shoot single-shot missiles that deal 35 damage. Up to 4 people can ride at once. The Motorboat can boost and will be slowly damaged for one HP every second if it's driven on land. The boosts can be used to gain a lot of speed on water, especially if the water current is going in the direction of the way you're driving. Driving and boosting directly into players will send them upwards and can cause major fall damage.

Upon being shot and destroyed, the Motorboat will immediately explode. However, this will not damage the players inside or near the boat.

Motorboats spawn all over the Battle Royale Map, however the areas with the most Motorboat spawns are around The Authority, Dirty Docks, Lazy Lake Island, and bottom left corner of the Battle Royale Map.

It is currently not available in Creative yet, like the Choppa.

In Patch 13.00, the Motorboat missile has received a small change. The missile now travels quicker than before, but it is now harder to hit enemies from short-ranges.

The change was reverted later on.

With Patch 15.10, Motorboats run on fuel now along with Cars and X-4 Stormwing. Motorboats can be refueled like Cars and X-4 Stormwings with Gas Cans.
