Fortnite Clinger Grenades Are Now Unvaulted in Chapter 3, Season 1

Fortnite Clinger Grenades Are Now Unvaulted

Fortnite players are in for a surprise today, as Clinger Grenades, or simply just Clingers, have been unvaulted. The Clinger Grenade is an item that dates all the way back to Fortnite Season 3, which began in February 2018. Veterans of Fortnite will likely remember these short-lived items that came and went from the loot pool in subsequent seasons.

As of December 28, 2021, Fortnite unvaulted Clinger Grenades in Update v19.01 in Chapter 3, Season 1. Many players were surprised to find this nostalgic item popping up in various parts of the map. There was no official announcement about plans to unvault this item. The official Fortnite Twitter did officially confirm the item’s addition to the game a few hours after the update went live.

How to get Clinger Grenades in Fortnite

To get Clinger Grenades in Fortnite, you can search through supply drops and loot chests or pick them up as random ground loot. There is generally no specific unique way to get Clinger Grenades, so you’ll find them as you normally play through the game. These are an uncommon rarity item that comes in stacks of three.

How do Clinger Grenades work in Fortnite?

Clinger Grenades are an uncommon projectile item acquired through floor loot, chests, or supply drops. They come in stacks of three and can stack up to a maximum of 10 grenades. Each Clinger Grenade deals up to 100 damage to players and 200 damage to structures. 

Clingers can actually stick onto players’ bodies and damage them when they explode. A common tactic is sticking them to a friendly player, as there is no team damage, and having that teammate act as a bomb. 

There’s no known information about how long Clinger Grenades will remain unvaulted in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1. However, if the past dictates the future, they will be vaulted again in a future patch. 

Here is the history of Clinger Grenades in Fortnite:

  • Season 3 – Clingers were introduced to Fortnite
