Added in Patch v5.30 is the Shockwave Grenade.

This new item launches players great distances without inflicting fall damage. The blast is so strong, you can launch players through structures!

YouTuber NoahJ456 seems to have discovered an exploit which allows the player to duplicate the amounts of loot which are dropped from both Llamas and Chests. This exploit is possible in all modes within Fortnite Battle Royale, please do not use the exploit outside of Playground as you are negatively affecting other player’s experience and risk getting banned.


Normally, a Llama will drop 200 of each Material, some ammo, and an assortment of traps. Using this exploit, a player is able to effectively triple the amount of loot which a Llama drops.

  • Locate a Llama
  • Blast yourself through the Llama using a Shockwave Grenade

Chests drop an assortment of loot which is not predefined. Using this exploit a player can open a Chest twice, doubling the loot that is received.

  • Locate and open a Chest
  • Blast yourself through the opened Chest using a Shockwave Grenade

Below you can watch as NoahJ456 demonstrates this exploit in-game.

The purpose of this post is to bring attention to the bug, not encourage its use. Epic has yet to provide a statement. It is likely Epic will temporarily disable Shockwave Grenades while the bug is fixed.
