Fortnite Battle Royale v22.10 Oct 11 Hotfix: Go to Town with the Explosive Goo Gun and More

By The Fortnite Team

A trio of items — two new and one unvaulted — makes its way to Fortnite Battle Royale in the v22.10 Oct 11 hotfix! See the three below:


Make a Mess with the Explosive Goo Gun

Fortnite Explosive Goo Gun

Things on the Island are about to get messier (and more explode-y).

Taking a note from the formidable Chrome, Explosive Goo is starting to cover stuff. With the new Explosive Goo Gun, cover your targets in a volatile substance that will stick to whatever it makes contact with and, after a moment, detonate! Make the most of the goo in your gun, as there are no ammo pickups available to refill it.

Explosive Goo Guns can be found from the ground, Chests, and Supply Drops. To start things off with a bang, the Explosive Goo Gun’s drop rate has been increased until v22.20. Grab one and paint the town!
 

Introducing Throwable Launch Pads 

Fortnite Throwable Launch Pads

Want an aerial view of Chrome’s beautiful effect on the landscape? Just throw down a Launch Pad and take off! 

The new Throwable Launch Pad item combines all the utility of a regular Launch Pad with a sturdy, deployable base ready on the go. Like the Port-A-Bunker item, the Throwable Launch Pad can be tossed at the ground and will instantly create support structures so you can jump on and soar through the sky. 

Also like the Port-A-Bunker, the Throwable Launch Pad takes up an item slot in your inventory, so coordinate with your squad about who’s carrying what to maximize your movement opportunities. Throwable Launch Pads can be found from the ground, Chests, and Supply Drops.


Shield Bubbles Unvaulted

Fortnite Shield Bubble

It’s not so easy to burst this bubble! Shield yourself and the squad from incoming fire with the unvaulted Shield Bubble. Invulnerable to projectiles and explosives, catch your breath under this protective dome — just watch out for enemies walking in and continuing the fight up close!

Shield Bubbles can as well be found from the ground, Chests, and Supply Drops.
