New Fortnite Update 4.4 Launches Soon, Stink Bomb Likely On The Way

Fortnite Stink Bomb

There is some more good news for all Fornite fans: Stink Bombs are making their way to the game very soon.

A group of players messing around in Fortnite: Battle Royale discovered an unfortunate accident in the game's design this weekend, but Epic Games plans to fix it as soon as possible. Of course, it wouldn't be as fun if you didn't also get to know how it worked, right? Now, the publisher and developer has chose to bring a new item into the title, by teasing the forthcoming inclusion of what are being called Stink Bombs. The game publisher removed smoke grenades from the game previously due to their lack of use, however, the new addition of damage could cause greater implementation amongst players. What's unknown at this point is just how large the damage radius will be with the stink bomb, and how much damage it will inflict if you're within the contaminated area. Epic Games confirmed in a statement to The Verge that it will be getting rid of the accidental symbol swiftly so it can not be replicated by other players. Being careful and slow is a great way of securing a "Victory Royale". However, if you're sick of people hiding in their 1x1 shacks, this could be the way to flush them out and finish them for good!

The Stink Bomb has a few interesting possibilities.

While you're waiting for Fortnite's next content update to drop, you can enjoy the new Omen outfit and Oracle pickaxe. Thursday, June 21 is when the update should become available, and that will probably implement this new grenade.
