The Bandage Bazooka is a Misc Item in Fortnite: Battle Royale. It was introduced in Chapter 2: Season 1. The Exotic version of this item is the Chug Cannon.


The Bandage Bazooka is unique in that it is a weapon used to heal squad members and yourself, rather than damage enemies. Firing the Bandage Bazooka at a friendly player or yourself will heal them for a small amount of Health. The weapon uses a soft-aimbot feature, allowing easier targeting on players.

If you do not hit a friendly player, it will produce a Bandage. You cannot heal opponents and will produce a Bandage if attempted to fire at an opponent.

The Bandage Bazooka does not use ammo pickups, instead it will regenerate ammo passively when in the players inventory. It also takes up two slots in the player's inventory, as opposed to the normal one slot. It will not replenish ammo unless it is in a player's inventory.


The Bandage Bazooka heals 15 Health per shot (15 Health per second). It takes 20 seconds to replenish one shot.
