Fortnite Battle Royale patch v9.30 3 is adding the Air Strike in the game, and players are already complaining about it.
Fortnite Air Strike is Here
The 14 days of Summer event is over and now we are fast approaching the Fortnite World Cup Finals. However, we are seeing still new items added to Fortnite. This is where Epic Games excel; continuously making fresh content. They are updating the game as much as possible. However, this sometimes creates miscalculations and problems. This might be the issue with the new Air Strike item. But first, let us check the new Fortnite Air Strike.
This item works like a grenade; you throw it and there is a colored smoke. Wherever the smoke canister lands, missiles start to fall down from the sky. These Missiles spawn about 120 meters above the canister. These missiles drop-down within 9 meters of the canister. The Air Strike contains 20 missiles per canister. These Air Strike missiles have an explosion radius of 3.5 meters. A direct missile hit deals 75 damage to players and 200 damage to structures. Players can find an Air Strike from Floor Loot, Chests, Supply Drops, Vending Machines, and Llamas. You can only find 1 with a max stack size of 2. Air Strike only has a Legendary variant.
Here’s the trailer of the new Fortnite Air Strike.
Ah yes. More items that take no skill. Keep’em coming
