Today has seen a bunch of new items, modes, and challenges leak for Fortnite: Battle Royale in the latest patch.
One of these leaks includes a new weapon, known as the Proximity Grenade Launcher, which comes in both Epic and Legendary Variants, so long as you are able to find one.
Not much about the new weapon is known at this time, other than the fact its part of the Explosive family of weapons available and its reload time, clip size, and damage. We don’t know what the weapon does when it fires, but we at least know it’s got a little bit of power behind it.
It’s ideally going to be the perfect weapon for competitive to set proximity mine traps for unsuspecting enemy players either chasing you or running through the build jungle in the final third.
Of course, theres always a chance that the weapon could never make it to game, so we will have to wait to see Epic’s official announcement to learn more.
