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.

The update that’ll introduce the Explosive Bow will likely release on either Tuesday 2nd April or Wednesday 3rd April. There’s been no official word from Epic yet, but we’ll update this article when the next update date and time has been confirmed.

Another Fortnite rip off. It’s the weapon for the sparrow on Black Ops 3 and Black Ops 4. These tools are just as generic as the game. Hate Fortpuke forever. Waste of space.
