The Chapter 2 update for Fortnite brought plenty of new items for players to use in their quests for Victory Royales. One of these new items was the Bandage Bazooka, which allows players to fire bandages and heal teammates at a distance. However, the community has noticed that the Bandage Bazooka is no longer in the title. A lack of official patch notes from Epic Games has led to players trying to discover on their own why this item is no longer available in the game's loot pool.  Fortunately, we have everything you need to know regarding why this weapon has been removed from the battle royale game covered.

According to the official Fortnite Trello page, the Bandage Bazooka was removed from the game because of syncing issues it was causing. Due to these syncing issues, Epic Games decided to remove the Bandage Bazooka from the game's core, competitive, and Playground playlists until they have fixed the problem with the weapon. 

Unfortunately for fans of the healing item, they will not be able to use the new Chapter 2 weapon until Epic Games can find a solution to the syncing issues that it was causing as of late. We will update this article with any new information regarding the potential return date for the weapon when it is made available.
