Part of the fun of games like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Fortnite Battle Royale is seeing how creative you can get with the weapons. Sure, there are a lot of “standard” weapons, like the shotgun, pistol, machine gun, and more. But, there’s also some creative ways to get things done. Plus, sometimes the dev team wants to add to the fun of the game by putting in a weapon that’ll really change things up. Take for example, Epic Games, who have added a very groovy weapon to Fortnite: The Boogie Bomb.
Don’t take the name for granted, this explosive has some very special moves of its own. On their site, Epic Games details how you use it, “Thrown like a normal grenade, but this explosion is dazzling.” Oh, but it’s more than just dazzling, the explosion won’t hurt players. Instead, it’ll make them dance!!!! So now, they’ll be forced to be in place for a while, thus making it easier for you to pick them off one at a time. Groovy.
Now, these grenades will only be dropped onto the field in one stack, and you can only carry ten at a time, so be mindful when you get them, and how you use them.
But wait! There’s more! Epic Games has also revealed a brand new event that’s coming to the game starting on the 28th. It’s called “High Explosives”, and it’s a game mode that’ll only allow you to use the Rocket Launchers, Snowball Launchers, and any grenades you can find. Thus, you know this event/game mode will start and end with a bang.
Be warned though! The mode will only go on until January 2nd. So if you want to be in on this, be sure to get time during those days. This is the latest mode that Fortnite has implemented with a time limit, makes you wonder what they have in mind for the future.
