An All-New Stink Bomb is Coming to Fortnite Battle Royale

A new item is coming to Fortnite Battle Royale as a new in-game news bulletin has confirmed that the “Stink Bomb” will be added soon.

Fortnite Battle Royale has taken the world by storm since its initial release in September of 2017, but for anyone that has been around since the start, it’s almost unrecognizable.


This isn’t because of major graphics overhauls or changes to the map (though these have also had an effect), but because of the constantly evolving meta and style of play.

The meta changes on such a regular basis due to Epic’s decision to release new items, weapons, balance changes, and more with virtually every update.


While there have certainly been some questionable changes, and some outright failures, the majority of these changes and new items have been well received and the developers are always reassessing them.

One item that has been teased by data miners since the start of June has been the “Stink Bomb”, and a new in-game news update on June 17th has now confirmed that it is “coming soon”.

Little it known about the “Stink Bomb” other than what is revealed in the brief description: “Explodes in a cloud on impact and slowly damage anyone inside”.


This sounds similar to tear gas and could potentially make the Stink Bomb a powerful item when you’re in a building battle and need to force your opponent out of their base.

The exact date for the release of the Stink Bomb is unknown but it seems likely that it will be added as part of the Tuesday, June 19th, Content Update.

Epic Games have had four of their upcoming Fortnite bundles leaked following the v14.30 update, but it’s unclear if this is all that’s coming with the Fortnitemares Halloween event. 

The game’s developers have arguably been a little slower than usual for rolling out new content in the battle royale title, yet we are quickly approaching a busy time of year for the game – the festive season.


In the weeks and months ahead, we can expect to see a full-blown Halloween event, coupled by their holiday challenges and updates.

For now, though, we’ll just have to settle for a few bundles here and there to keep the game ticking over. Some of them look impressive nonetheless.

Fortnite has been given a big shakeup in recent times, and more bundles are coming.

Fortnite leaked bundles from v14.30 update

Following the rollout of the game’s latest patch, which saw the introduction of a Rally Royale LTM and gave the Pump Shotgun a big buff, leakers were quickly hard at work finding unreleased content.

On October 13, ShiinaBR hit the jackpot with four different bundles – as seen below.

They include Daredevil’s red skin, as well as previously released Halloween skins that will likely return to the Item Shop.


The data miner didn’t put an expected release date on any of these bundles, or prices for that matter, but their introduction to the game files suggests players won’t have to wait long before they are made available to use in-game.

As mentioned earlier, Halloween is just around the corner for the community, so we should expect even more weird and wonderful skins to be released in the near future.

If it goes down anything like this patch, they will probably be leaked ahead of time as well – so keep your eyes peeled.
