The Boogie Bomb is a Utility Throwable Item in Fortnite: Battle Royale. It was added in Season 2.


The Boogie Bomb is thrown at a player, to force them to dance. When dancing, a player cannot use weapons or items, nor can they build, sprint or crouch. The Boogie Bomb can affect all players, both friendly and hostile. Players will dance for 5 seconds, or less if they are hurt during this time.


Boogie Bombs deal no damage, and last 5 seconds on affected targets.

The risk was calculated... but man am I bad at math.
This section outlines a strategy. Feel free to add tips, tricks and general advice about the topic.

  • When Boogie Bombed in a car or vehicle, the bomb will force the player hit to jump out of the vehicle.
    • Throwing a Boogie Bomb at a player in a Choppa causes them to jump out of the vehicle and receive fall damage.
    • Throwing a Boogie Bomb at a player in a B.R.U.T.E. or Salvaged B.R.U.T.E. will force the player out, rendering the mechs useless.
  • If a Boogie Bomb is thrown in a player's radius after using an object that negates fall damage, it will cancel the zero-gravity effect, thus causing the player to be vulnerable to fall damage again.
  • Avoid using the Boogie Bomb in close fights as you will also be affected by the bomb.
