Fortnite patch v5.40 went live on Thursday, September 6, and data miners have begun to tear through the files of the update, looking for any new information.
Among the files, a Spike Arena Grenade has been discovered, and it sounds like a terrifying prospect for those who get caught up in it.
The Spike Arena appears to be an Epic Grenade item which acts similar to the Port-a-Fort, spawning a Bounce Pad and Spike Trap area.
Throw this to create your very own Bounce & Spike Trap arena!

What do you think the purpose of this Item is, does it seem to be more of a fun item rather than useful?
Perhaps we’ll see the introduction of Playground-specific Items to add more variety to the Mode.
