How to get and use the Bush bomb in Fortnite

by Ana Lopez

A lot of new equipment is coming Fortnite in update v23.20, which includes the new Bush Bomb. Shrubs have long been a main feature of Fortnite, with tactics in the early years of the game where you have to hide in them until the late stages of a match. At one point, you could even equip a Bush to wear as a disguise, as he waddles around the map looking like a right-wing wally. But how does the new Fortnite Bush Bomb work? Keep reading to find out.

Fortnite Bush Bomb: How Does It Work?

The Fortnite Bush Bomb works as you would expect a normal grenade to work. But instead of a big explosion happening when he hits the ground, a huge bush appears in his wake. These are also no longer the small bushes that you used to be able to hide in. These are quite massive.

These new Bush bombs will be extremely useful when trying to create new cover for yourself. Especially if you’re running through a huge open space, throwing one or two of these Bush bombs will immediately counter a distant sniper’s line of sight.

You can also use Bush Bombs to trick other players in close quarters combat. You can see through the bush a bit while in it, but they eventually limit your view. This will make it incredibly difficult for an attacking player to confirm that they have knocked you out.

Fortnite Bush Bomb: where to find it

The Fortnite Bush Bomb appears as standard loot that can be found in chests scattered around the island. If you haven’t found one yet, keep exploring the map and opening more chests until you get lucky – you should eventually find one.
