There’s good news for players waiting for Epic to enable the Fortnite bandage bazooka.

Epic temporarily disabled the Fortnite Bandage Bazooka, a weapon that was added at the start of Chapter 2, due to sync issues when the weapon was being used. It was officially disabled on November 9th with Epic stating they’ll provide an update when the issue is resolved.

However, Epic have continued their trend this season of not providing any updates or information on updates, changes to weapons, or providing patch notes. Thankfully, they updated their Trello page recently to announce when the Fortnite Bandage Bazooka would be returning to the game.

When will the Fortnite Bandage Bazooka Return?

The Trello Board states the Bandage Bazooka will return to Fortnite in the next Fortnite update. We already know the next update is v11.20 which will be released some time this week, likely tomorrow, 20th November.

The major reason as to why players have complained about the Bandage Bazooka being disabled in Fortnite is due to the fact it’s required to complete several of the weekly mission challenges.

It’s also required for one of the Alter Ego challenges that requires players to heal a teammates with a Bandage Bazooka while wearing the Remedy outfit. Upon completing this challenge, players will unlock the skin style for Remedy called Toxin.

Epic Games are yet to officially announce the date and time for the v11.20 Fortnite update but as always, we’ll keep you updated with the latest Fortnite news.
