The in-game news feed has updated to tease a new weapon coming to Fortnite Battle Royale, The Explosive Bow.
Epic Games have just updated the in-game news feed to tease the release of an upcoming weapon for Fortnite Battle Royale, The Explosive Bow.
The description of the weapon reads, “Archery can be a blast!“. You can see an image of the weapon below.
It was obvious this would be the next weapon added into Fortnite Battle Royale for a number of reasons. In the one of the Fortnite Season 8 images, you can see Ember holding a bow. Epic have added in other items that are in the image including The Baller vehicle and the Flint-Knock Pistol. It was only a matter of time before the bow was added.
The weapon was leaked in last week’s v8.20 patch update, with an image and animations posted on Twitter by dataminers. The week 6 challenges were also leaked and one of the challenges requires players to get eliminations with either the Flint-Knock Pistol or the Boom Bow.
You can see the animations and listen to the sounds of the Explosive Bow below thanks to Fortnite leaker Fort Tory:
