Fortnite Update Brings New Bouncer Trap To Battle Royale

by Camden Jones on Jun 05, 2018 at 11:08 AM

Fortnite's newest update adds the bouncer trap to Battle Royale, which boosts players upward or in a direction.

The bouncer trap is essentially a combination of the vertical and horizontal jump pads that were previously in the game, according to Polygon.

The rare trap can be placed on floors and walls, and can spawn in stacks of three in treasure chests, supply drops, supply llamas, and floor loot. 

The update also adds two new heroes, Diecast Jonsey and Chromium Ramirez, to Fortnite's Save The World mode, which will be available at the Save The World Event Store at 7:00 p.m. CT tomorrow, June 6.

Our Take
I imagine players will come up with some unique uses of this trap when combined with Fortnite's new shopping carts. I'm looking forward to the highlight reels.
