Make a move with the new item that's making its appearance into Battle Royale. And with the Shockwave Grenade set to be incorporated into Fortnite Battle Royale soon, it definitely increases the chances of the other two weapons being included, too.

As indicated by the description of the new item in the image below, Shockwave Grenades will give players the ability to send opponents, squad members, and even themselves soaring across the map "like a human cannonball".

Shockwave Grenade launches players over "great distances" in the game without any fall damage. This time around, Solid Gold is playable in standard and 50v50 iterations, and as before, the only weapons and items that spawn in this mode are of the Legendary variety.

A new hero backflips into Save the World! It will be available from the Event Store beginning tomorrow, August 29, at 5 PM PT / 8 PM ET and features the new Bladestorm subclass.

As spotted by Android Central, Google flagged a significant security vulnerability in the Fortnite Android Installer released earlier this month, though the company notably first disclosed the issue to Epic and ensured the vulnerability was fixed before publicly detailing the flaw. The update is available now for most platforms, but the developer says the Switch patch will follow "a little bit later" as it will also include matchmaking improvements for that console.
