In their October 31st update (see the link above), Epic Games reported that, "During this time [the testing week] we've been collecting internal data and monitoring constructive feedback from all of you". Teased in the game's news feed over the past week, balloons allow players to float silently upwards before dropping back down.

As seen in the pair of tweets below, Epic Games wanted to give Fortnite fans a heads up earlier this morning that it would be releasing a hotfix today in order to reign in the explosive damage so that structures still provide some form of protection against any given blast. I also wonder whether using them will make you something of a sitting duck - as they appear to rise quite slowly, and you can't shoot while using them. You can hold as many as six at once; you inflate balloons by hitting the primary fire button and let go of one by hitting secondary fire. In the v6.21 update, the Battle Royale mode now gets new weapons, items, hero and skins. Guided missiles, which many felt were overpowered, are gone - as has the semi-auto sniper, and the annoyingly weak dual pistols. You can find balloons in chests, floor loot, vending machines, supply drops and loot llamas.

Players can deploy more balloons or release them mid-flight to modulate height. On one hand, Fortnite balloons are now a thing! The new patch also brings some adjustment to grappler player velocity in passenger vehicle, also, the grappled vehicle now travels in a straight line instead of moving in an arc.
