Every day of Fortnite’s 14 Days of Summer event will unvault one item for 24 hours. The fourth day of the event saw the Crossbow being added back into Fortnite Battle Royale.

Epic Games has created a new mechanic by unvaulting a new weapon every day which switches up the game’s meta.

The first couple of weapons that were temporarily unvaulted were the Light Machine Gun and Quad Launcher. The LMG was available on June 25 with the Quad Launcher on June 26.

June 28 saw a brand new weapon being unvaulted for players to enjoy, and that weapon is the Crossbow.

Crossbow temporarily unvaulted

The Crossbow was originally added into Fortnite Battle Royale all the way back in Season 2 as a way to help celebrate Valentines. Epic gave the Crossbow a heart-themed skin for the holiday.

The Crossbow was the fourth item vaulted in Fortnite: Battle Royale.

It was vaulted back in patch 4.0, but some fans have expressed that they would like to see the weapon again to help mix up the meta.

Even though the weapon does not deal a lot of damage, it is ideal as a beginner weapon since there is an unlimited amount of ammo for the bow.

There are two rarities for the Crossbow, Rare and Legendary.

Here are the weapon’s stats:

  • Rarity: Rate/Legendary
  • DPS: 45 / 47.4
  • Damage: 75 / 79
  • Fire rate: 0.6 seconds
  • Magazine size: 5
  • Reload time: 2.6 seconds / 2.5 seconds
  • Structure damage: 1

Every day of 14 Days of Summer there will be a new weapon that becomes unvaulted. Here are all the weapons that have been unvaulted for 24 hours:

  1. Light Machine Gun
  2. Quad Launcher
  3. Burst Assault Rifle
  4. Crossbow
  5. TBD
