Fortnite’s new V7.30 Content Update has officially gone live, giving fans a look at one of the newest additions to the game, Bottle Rockets.

Bottle Rockets were officially announced via the game’s built-in news feed on Sunday, February 2, with the caption “Loud, bright and dangerous! Warning: Do not light indoors.”

Now, the new weapon has officially launched in Fortnite, and players already getting a glimpse at how powerful this item could turn out to be.

Bottle Rockets were included in the V7.30 Content Update.

In a clip posted to Fortnite’s Twitter account, a group of players can be seen running into a Durr Burger location to take cover from an oncoming enemy onslaught. Instead of building or charging into the diner after them, the rushing team took a different approach, instead placing down the Bottle Rocket item.

Once lit, fireworks are seen flying away towards the Durr Burger, dealing damage to the building and destroying most of it in less than 10 seconds.

The item fires 45 rockets in the space of nine seconds, and deals 10 damage to enemy players with each explosion, and 40 points of damage to environmental and player built structures.

Fortnite fans are already unhappy with the new item, with one fan calling them “Another nerf to building in Fortnite” while watching the items destroy parts of the castle inside Polar Peak in seconds.

Players will only be able to place down two at any one time, but a full squad with a number of these items could quickly tear down an enemy building in a matter of seconds, much like the now vaulted Boombox.

The V7.30 Content Update also included an update to the campfires found in the game, along with various improvements and changes. Make sure you get caught up on everything that is coming in the new update by reading the V7.30 Content Update patch notes.


How to get Hop Rock Dualies exotic weapon in Fortnite: new location

Epic Games has thrown Fortnite players for a bit of a loop and changed the location of one of the most coveted Exotic weapons in the game right now: the Hop Rock Dualies. Here’s where you can find it after February 24, 2021.

The Hop Rock Dualies are one of the most powerful Exotic-rarity weapons in the game right now and for good reason. Not only are they incredibly powerful pistols that, essentially, fire in a two-round burst, but they also give the player a low gravity effect, allowing them to glide through the air like an action star.

While they were previously available via the NPC named Cole, who was found near Retail Row and Catty Corner, Epic Games has now switched up who sells the Hop Rock Dualies, just a few weeks before Season 6 launches.

The Hop Rock Dualies can now be found with Deadfire, near the center of the map.

This time around, the Hop Rock Dualies can be found with the NPC named Deadfire, the cowboy-type character added during the game’s Season 5 launch back in December.

Luckily, Deadfire can only spawn on one place on the map as of the time as of this writing: in the Sheriff’s office near the center of the map. This means that, unlike last time, players don’t have to roll the dice landing at one spot, hoping the NPC will spawn there.

Interestingly, he hasn’t moved locations since his inclusion at the start of the season, meaning if you know where he was located before, you’ll already know where to find the Hop Rock Dualies.

That being said, if you want to get your hands on the Hop Rock Dualies in Fortnite, here’s what you’ll need to do:

  1. Head to the Sheriff’s Office near the center of the map (it’ll be the old run down building between Colossal Coliseum and the Zero Point portal).
  2. Once there, head to the first floor and find Deadfire.
  3. Speak to them and select the Hop Rock Dualies option.
  4. Click again to confirm the purchase.

Like before, the Hop Rock Dualies will cost players 500 Gold.

How much do the Hop Rock Dualies cost?

Just like before, you’ll need to make sure you’re loaded with 500 Gold Bars if you want to get your hands on the Hop Rock Dualies. That’s not an easy amount to come by, so check out our guide for making money in Fortnite if you’re short.

The Hop Rock Dualies weapon includes two pistols, making it the perfect choice for gunslingers. They use medium bullets, deal 43 damage to players, and have a magazine size of 18 with a reload time of 2.7 seconds.
