Grenades in Fortnite: Battle Royale are basic tools for destroying enemy fortifications. They deal high damage, but the throwing range is very short. However, it is a good idea to have them on you as a replacement for the more powerful grenade launcher or RPG. These are not divided into any classes and they work rather as an extra piece of equipment. A single grenade explosion can kill the opponent and deprive him of the entire health bar (without shields).
- Grenade launcher is a good replacement for grenades. It deals 5% damage less, but has longer range. Armed with grenade launcher, you can destroy an enemy fort several tens of meters away and it is perfect for throwing grenades into tall, fortified watchtowers. Just like with a regular grenade, you can eliminate an opponent with full health bar. There are several classes of grenade launchers – blue, purple and orange.
- Rocket-propelled grenade – RPG is the most powerful and the rarest weapon in the game. Using it, you can destroy an enemy fort at a very long distance and its damage kills an enemy with full health bar. As of now (patch 1.7) RPG is very accurate and has high rate of fire, which makes it useful even at short distance, since the radius of the blast is quite long. Just like in the case of grenade launchers there are several classes – blue, purple and orange.
- Boogie Bomb – This item takes space in your inventory and it is a variant of a regular grenade. Using it on an enemy (or on yourself) forces its target to dance but an enemy (or you) can still control a character. In short – an enemy can escape but they can’t shoot back. Very useful during fights on a short distance.
- Smoke Grenade – This grenade is another variant of a regular one. It creates a small smoke cloud that blocks visibility. This effects lasts for a few seconds.
