It would be difficult to find a week where something new is not added into the world of Fortnite Battle Royale. This high frequency of new items continued on Tuesday, August 20th when Epic Games added to the new Rift Junk item to the Fortnite loot pool. The Fortnite Junk Rift item is one of the more unique items players can now use in their quests for Victory Royales, and we have everything you need to know about the dominant piece of loot covered for you below.

Fortnite Junk Rift

This particular piece of loot is a throwable item a player can use amid a battle. After being thrown at a specific location, the Junk Rift will open up a portal and cause a very large item to fall from the sky and onto the place where the thing was thrown. 

You can find all of the stats for the newly added item below:

  • Damages players and destroys everything in its path.  
  • Creates a small shockwave upon landing that damages players and destroys everything in its radius.
  • 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.

Players can find the Fortnite Junk Rift item from floor loot, chests, supply drops, and Llamas throughout the world of the high-profile battle royale game. 

Epic Games released a gameplay trailer for the newly added item, and it looks as though the Fortnite Junk Rift item will be a powerful counter to the Brute Mech vehicle which has been dominating the battlefields of the game following the start of Season X.
