How will the Bottle Rockets in Fortnite actually work?

Published

on

During the Super Bowl, Fortnite announced that they will be adding a couple new things to the game during the v7.30 Content Update which will go live tomorrow. 

The Foraged Campfire and Bottle Rockets will be hitting the map and we are curious what changes we can expect.

The former seems pretty self-explanatory but the latter is still a bit confusing as to how it actually works.

So we did our best to take lessons from Fortnite’s previous additions to the game, plus some information from the game files, to figure out what the Bottle Rockets will actually do.

Similar to the Mounted Turret

The design on the base of the Bottle Rocks seems to indicate that it will be a stationary item like the mounted turrets. This seems like it would make more sense as the last thing Fortnite needs is more handheld explosive devices.

Also, Epic likes to introduce new items and not rehash old items so a mounted explosive device seems likely as it is something Fortnite hasn’t done before.

Structural damage

The description of the Bottle Rockets is “Loud, Bright and Dangerous! Warning: Do not light indoors.”

That second sentence seems to be an indicator that the weapon will be focused around destroying structures, much like the Boombox. If that is the case it will be interesting to see the reception from the player base.

The weapon will also probably damage players but it would make sense for the damage to players to be low if the damage to structures is high. If both are high, this weapon will be instantly overpowered and honestly, it might be anyway.

Fire Rate

The mounted turrets had a consistent fire rate but overheated to prevent them from being spammed. Some people in the early days would place two side-by-side to get around the overheat but that strategy never really caught on because counters to the turrets came out pretty quickly.

The Bottle Rockets will have to work differently. They may have a rocket reload time between each shot or a mass reload after a couple rockets are fired off. Either one of those systems would work.

I just hope you can’t spam a bunch of rockets one after another. If they do deal a lot of damage to structures, the madness of builds being broken with the loud and bright rockets seems exhausting.

How good will the Bottle Rockets be?

This is the big question. How good will they be? Based on past introductions of new weapons and items in Season 7 I feel it is safe to say they will be really strong. Almost everything Epic has introduced in this season has been designed to make an impact immediately.

It also seems like Epic’s stance with new items is to start them strong then nerf them back to a more level playing field. For that reason expect to see a lot of Bottle Rockets flying through the air tomorrow.

What do you think the Bottle Rockets will be like? Are you excited for another weapon like the mounted turrets?

When Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 ends, Season 3 start date

Here is when Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 ends and Season 3 starts. The season is off to a heated start, and it’s only going to get more intense.

Fortnite Chapter 3 has just entered its second season, and it’s off to a great start. Here is when Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 ends and Season 3 starts.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 ended without much warning ahead of time from Epic Games. In fact, only a day before the Season ended did we get an announcement for Season 2.

Regardless, Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 is off to a hot start. We have new POIs, weapons, and a flashy new Battle Pass. There’s also no building to start and an ongoing turf war.

Whether you love or hate the new season, you might be wondering when the next one will start.

When Does Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 End?

Fortnite Season 2 will end on June 3, 2022. This means the second season of the new chapter will last a little less than three months making it fairly short compared to Season 1.

This end date was found in the in-game files by data miners. Unlike last season where Epic Games listed two season end dates, there is only one end date this time around.

When Does Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 Start?

New Fortnite seasons usually start within 24 hours after the previous one ends. Players can expect Chapter 3 Season 3 to start on June 4.

That being said, leaker Shiina believes there will be an extended period of downtime after the season ends to prep for Season 3. We will know more about this delay as time draws closer.

Is There a Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 Live Event?

The final update for Fortnite Season 2 is here and we now have confirmation that, yes, there will be a live event!

The Season 2 live event will likely focus on stopping the new Doomsday Device from going off at Loot Lake. It is a very similar tower to that of Midas’ Doomsday Device in Chapter 2 Season 2.

What Season is Fortnite on?

Fortnite is currently in Chapter 3 Season 2. This is the second season of the third chapter which started after Chapter 2 Season 8. While most players refer to this season as “Season 2”, it’s technically Season 20.

There were 10 seasons in Chapter 1 and 8 seasons in Chapter 2.

For now, that’s everything we know about Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2. This chapter will likely span the next year or so and will be filled with exciting events.

We will keep you updated on when Fortnite Season 3 starts. For more Fortnite, check out the best controller settings for Chapter 3, and stay tuned for more news and guides.

Fortnite Season 2 adds not one but two Marvel characters to the game via the Battle Pass, but players might not be familiar with Prowler.

Season 2 started off hot with an amazing battle pass and a shocking removal of the game’s iconic building mechanic. Players were even more excited to see the Battle Pass had two crossover characters.

The first is Doctor Strange who has a new movie releasing in May. However, players may not be super familiar with the second crossover character. And it was surprisingly released alongside the Fortnite v20.20 update.

Prowler is an alias used by a number of people in the Marvel universe. But he most recently appeared in Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse as Miles Morales’ uncle. And the in-game skin is a similar depiction of the character.
