The in-game Message of the Day has given us a tease of the upcoming Quad Launcher weapon to Fortnite’s Battle Royale gamemode.
The launcher, which has been leaked for over a month after data-miners found it in the Battle Royale files, has the following description.
“Quickly fire up to 4 rockets to blanket an area with explosive damage.”
It is the first new weapon to be added to the game since the addition of the Suppressed Assault Rifle, and it is the first weapon to be added to Fortnite Battle Royale’s Sixth Season.
It is expected that the Quad Launcher will be added to Fortnite in the upcoming patch, although this could be changed by Epic Games at any time. The launcher already exists in Save the World, Fortnite’s other gamemode.
We are still waiting on the Disco Domination LTM to make an appearance after it was teased in the Message of the Day a week ago.
Here is a full look at the weapon:
As you can see, it will shoot 4 rockets at a time, striking utter mayhem onto whatever it is pointed at. We don’t know the damage per rocket, but we know it will be devastating – and the effects will be catastrophic.
What do you think? Will this alter the meta of Fortnite? Let us know in the comments below, but please keep it civilised!
