The Bandage Bazooka has been missing in Fortnite for about a week and a half. When will it be coming back?

The mystery of the Bandage Bazooka in Fortnite is one for the ages. Most of the time, Epic disables an item for a day or two while they work on a fix. Sometimes, the item is only gone for a few hours before it’s back in the game.

Epic removed the Bandage Bazooka from Fortnite on November 9, citing syncing issues as the reason for its disappearance. To this day, many players still don’t know exactly why Epic removed it in the first place.

Now, almost a week and a half later, we’re still waiting on the Bandage Bazooka to return. Things wouldn’t be so bad if we weren’t longing to finish “The Lowdown” challenges and obtain Toxin skin variant.


So, when will the Bandage Bazooka return to Fortnite? We wish we knew. As of this writing, the issue is still listed as “Investigating/In Development” on the Fortnite Community Issues Trello board – though it does carry the “important” tag.

Based on this designation, we probably won’t be getting the Bandage Bazooka back this week – which means at least another full week without the item.

It would make sense for Epic to auto-complete the missing challenges at this point. Most of the dedicated players would have completed it by now if they were able to.

It’s a bummer that the Bandage Bazooka is out of competitive Fortnite. It provides a decent balance of infinite healing with a cooldown at the cost of two inventory slots. How do you feel about the Bandage Bazooka? Let us know in the comments.

  1. The bandage bazooka challenges are the only ones I have to complete at this point. It’s a bit frustrating seeing them there and knowing I can’t do anything about it. I would be fine with an auto-complete, or even better yet, replacement challenges.

  2. I just had to get 70 health healed with it to get my 6th mission completed. Since I have finished the battle pass, without buying tiers, I just want the new skin variants so if I completed this challenge I would be able to get scratch skin variant. This upset me and I can’t wait to get the bandage bazooka back. Epic please just bring it back.

  3. I’m trying to finish The Lowdown mission but can’t without the Bandage Bazooka and I still have to deal damage to opponents while riding in a Motorboat and then all 6 of the available missions will be complete until the next mission unlocks in 2 days! And I have to heal a teammate with a Bandage Bazooka while wearing the Remedy outfit to unlock the Toxin outfit to complete the Alter Ego challenges!
