It’s Tuesday, and that means the latest patch for Fortnite Season X is here. In this patch Epic Games has introduced a new item into the game: Junk Rift. Here’s the details for this new item:

What is Junk Rift?

  • A throwable item that breaks on contact and spawns a large object in the sky that plummets to the ground.
  • The plummeting object damages players and destroys everything in its path.  
  • Creates a small shockwave upon landing that damages players and destroys everything in its radius.

Junk Rift Damage:

  • Direct hit: 200
  • Direct hits slightly knock players back.
  • Shockwave hit: 100
  • Both hits immediately destroy vehicles and destructible objects on impact.
  • Drops in stacks of 2.
  • Max stack size: 4
  • Epic Rarity.
  • Available from Floor Loot, Chests, Supply Drops, and Llamas.

In this official video from Epic Games, we can see the infamous mech BRUTE being completely destroyed after a dinosaur falls on its head from a junk rift.

Not only does the new item allow players to easily kill annoying mechs, but it also grants them a way to destroy enemy builds and combat enemies camping in 1×1 structures.

People are already having fun with the new Junk Rift item. It is yet to be seen how professional players will utilize the item in competitive play.
