In the recent Fortnite 19.10 Update we've got a whole lot of new stuf, one of those things is the grenade launcher.

We've been waiting ages for this. Tears have flown as we desperately waited for a whole new weapon. Shotguns, MKs, who needs those when you've got the chance to wield a grenade launcher?

Thanks to the Mid Season Update 19.10 we've been introduced to Klombos that will stand by your side in battle. Oh and we're also excited for the return of Tilted Towers and while we're reminiscing of the past there is one more old friend making a return to the island: The grenade launcher!

Changes Coming to the Grenade Launcher in the 19.10 Update

In, out, in out. Epic really can't decide what they want the grenade launcher in the game or not. It's almost as though the weapon isn't that popular? The last time we got the grenade launcher was all the way back in Patch 11.30, back then with snowballs!

These are the changes that will come to the grenade launcher:

  • Several tweaks in order to make the Grenade Launcher more responsive
  • Projectiles now explode after their first bounce
  • The Grenade Launcher fires more directly at your target

This is How You get the Grenade Launcher in Fortnite

You'll be able to get the grenade launcher by looking through rare chests, supply drops, and sharks! You might find some grenades in the belly of that shark, who knows.

Along with the epic new cosmetics just announced, as well as all the other changes coming to Fortnite, how hyped are you to play your favorite Battle Royale?
