Remember when everyone worked out that you could ride on top of the missiles from the Rocket Launcher in Fortnite? Well, now players are doing something even better.

If you weren’t already aware, you can ride the Stink Bomb too. Yes, you read that right, the throwable item can be jumped on in a very similar fashion, as Reddit user ‘kuzner’ proved with a recent video.

In that video, you can see a player named ‘Zolo II’ leaping onto one of the smelly grenades as his teammate throws it – something that we’re willing to bet 99.9% of people had no idea was possible.


To top things off, Zolo made the most of his Stink Bomb ride and managed to hit a sniper shot on the last remaining opponent in order to secure the Victory Royale!

There have been instances of players riding the Stink Bomb in the past, but this particular clip has caught the attention of the community and gone viral, meaning you’re likely to encounter far more players attempting it from now on.

The Stink Bomb ride might not compete with the Rocket Ride when it comes to the distance you can travel, but there’s something rather profound about tearing an opponent’s head off while riding along in a cloud of toxic gas.


The Stink Bomb was added to the game in June as part of the v4.4 Content Update and is usually used to gas players out of structures when they try to hide.

Now, though, they are sure to be used for completely different purposes!
