Fortnite fans knew that a brand new rocket launcher turret was being added by Epic Games, but little did they know that the Bottle Rocket could be used like no other weapon in the game. 

The powerful launcher, which was added to the game with the latest v7.30 content update, can be used to fire rockets towards enemy bases in Fortnite. 


However, while many players are simply placing them on the ground to start them up, there are ways that can make them potentially much more effective – by connecting them to vehicles. 


Fortnite’s Bottle Rocket was introduced in the latest v7.30 content update!

Fortnite’s Bottle Launcher looks extremely powerful already, with many videos being shared on social media showing it destroying buildings with ease when placed on the floor, but it is being tested out by players to see how is best to use it. 

One user, who goes by the name of DieorBitz on Reddit, posted a video to the Fortnite BR subreddit which shows just how easily the Bottle Rocket can be connected to vehicles to make them moving, destroying machines – even the shopping cart!

The video shows how the Bottle Launcher would look in battle, when connected to the X-4 Stormwing plane, Quadcrasher, Golf Cart and shopping trolley. 


This is just the latest step taken by Epic Games to reinvent the way Fortnite Battle Royale is being players right now, but whether or not this new feature will attract the same heat as the planes, Infinity Blade or even the Boom Box did remains to be seen. 

With Season 8 just around the corner and a potential earthquake rumored to change the landscape of the map, could Bottle Rockets prove to be one of the most popular items moving forward?
