Epic Games‘ free-to-play Fortnite: Battle Royale mode just got a new item and a limited time event in the latest update.
The update adds a new item to the game, the Boogie Bomb. The bomb isn’t a bomb per se, because instead of blowing people up, anyone present within the boogie bomb’s radius is forced to, well, boogie. This prevents affected players from building, using their weapons or items as long as the bomb’s effect is active. As for the limited time event, High Explosives limits players to using only “Snowball Launchers, Rocket Launchers and all types of Grenades.”
