With the v9.21 patch and content update, Epic Games released the Proximity Grenade Launcher into the Fortnite wilds. What they were thinking in adding such a weapon is completely beyond us.
Epic loves to mix things in Fortnite whether the current meta of the game is good or bad. For them, it’s about keeping things fresh and creating media attention around each and every release.
Of course, this strategy makes sense for keeping the game alive, but it can also seriously hurt the game’s balance. With the release of the Proximity Launcher, it seems they’ve done did it again.
