Eric Williamson, Design Lead on Fortnite Battle Royale at Epic Games, has posted a Tweet to Twitter teasing the return of the iconic Pumpkin Rocket Launcher.
If you weren’t a Fortnite Battle Royale player in October of 2017 you likely don’t remember the Pumpkin Rocket Launcher. This was a limited-time weapon which was added during Fortnite’s first Halloween event, Fortnitemares. The Pumpkin Rocket Launcher is also credited with starting the Rocket Riding Trend thanks to a bug due to the Pumpkin’s large collision. With Fortnitemares returning this year it only makes sense that we see the return of this launcher.
thoomp heheheh… WAAAH 🎃
