Remote explosives are a new item that has been added to Fortnite today, and some players in the community have some questions about how they work.
Remote explosives are found in fours and players can hold a maximum of ten per inventory slot. Each explosive causes 80 damage when it has been detonated.
Players can only detonate their own explosives with the remote, however it is possible to shoot an explosive that has been placed by an enemy and it will have the same effect as if the explosive was detonated.
You can place more than one explosive at a time, but players will need to keep in mind that explosives will be detonated in the order they have been placed.
You can place as many remote explosives as you can find but there’ll be a slight delay between each explosion, and they’ll explode in the same order they were placed.
One of the most asked questions about the remote explosives is the detonation range. Eric, an Epic employee, has confirmed that you can detonate the explosives from anywhere on the map. As explosives are detonated in the order they are placed, it is important for players to remember if they have placed an explosive earlier on and will need to detonate that explosive before others that have been placed will detonate.
