With Fortnite Update 23.20, new reality augments and new gear like the Falcon Drone came to the game. And an extremely camper-friendly item has also made it into the game, the big bush bomb.

Bushes have long been an integral part of Fortnite. In the early years of the game, the tactic was to hide inside them until the end of a match, then ambush an opponent at the last moment. Also, there used to be an item that you could use to put on a bush as a disguise! However, the big bush bomb works a bit differently. Here's what you need to know to avoid those campers!

What Is The Big Bush Bomb In Fortnite?

The Big Bush Bomb lets you — who would have expected it — spawn a huge bush! These come in particularly handy when attempting to gain new cover. Especially in Fortnite's no-build mode, where you can't build walls in your face, this item is extremely handy and could even decide the endgame for you!

To spawn a bush, all you have to do is throw the bush bomb where you want the bush to spawn. You can even pin the bushes to vehicles and motorcycles.

Unfortunately, you can't keep an infinite number of them in your inventory. You will only be able to take four bush bombs with you at a time.

Fortnite's Big Bush Bomb: How To Get It

The Big Bush Bomb is part of Fortnite's normal loot pool. So it can be found as loot on the ground, in normal chests, in Oathbound chests, or in Supply Drops. However, it is not in the game yet! The big bush bomb will only be released in Fortnite on January 24th.
