A new ‘Zapper Trap’ will be coming soon to Fortnite Battle Royale – here’s everything you need to know.

The official confirmation that the Zapper Trap will be coming to Fortnite came on Monday, September 2 via the in-game Battle Royale news screen.

Originally leaked a day prior by ‘FortTory,’ the Zapper Trap will be making a comeback after it was featured all the way back in Fortnite Season One.

Although the Zapper Trap didn’t gain a whole lot of traction in Season One, there also weren’t nearly as many players as there are currently. So, it seems that Epic Games are willing to take a risk on the trap once again.

When is the Zapper Trap coming to Fortnite Battle Royale?

At the time of writing, there is no confirmed date for the Zapper Trap to be added to Fortnite since it was officially announced.

It will most likely come via the next patch or Content Update, which, if Epic Games sticks to their Season 10 schedule, should arrive on Tuesday, September 3.

However, it should be noted that the schedule could potentially change, so we will wait for an official announcement regarding the upcoming update before confirming any dates.
