The headline feature for Fortnite update 5.3 is the Shockwave Grenade, but there is plenty more to come in the latest Fortnite update. Last week the Rift-To-Go item was the flagship feature in Epic’s battle royale game, but there is always more to come.
The star addition to Fortnite update 5.3 is the Shockwave Grenade. After some heavy leaking in previous weeks, the new item has appeared in the incoming Fortnite update. The item description reads: “Send yourself, allies, or enemies flying like a human cannonball! Grants immunity to fall damage.”
That said, the Fortnite Shockwave Grenade will not be the only change to the game: we also see a return of the legendary-only drops chaos of Solid Gold LTM, now available in 50v50. Before we get to the new changes, make sure you’re caught up on our Fortnite week 7 challenges guide and the full list of Fortnite Tomatohead challenges. Done?
