Bouncers are a Device in Fortnite: Battle Royale. They were added in Season 4.


Bouncers are a device that can be placed on any player-owned or neutral structure, in any direction or orientation. They launch players or vehicles away from them. Bouncers will negate fall damage.

When placed on the side of a structure, it appears they have a special function to instantly launch a player on near contact. If placed on a flat surface or slope however, the player must directly touch it to be launched.

If a box is created with bouncers on all surfaces, eventually one of them will break in order to set the player free. Aside from this, they can be used infinitely.


Bouncers can be obtained from a variety of places. They are found as floor loot, in chests, in Supply Llamas and in Supply Drops. They drop in stacks of 3 and stack infinitely.


Bouncers launch the player roughly 3 tiles upward.

Strategy Guide

Calculated - Emote - Fortnite.png
The risk was calculated... but I'm bad at math.
This section outlines a strategy. Feel free to add tips, tricks and general advice about the topic.

  • If the player is quick, they can build a wall or ramp few tiles up, then quickly place a bouncer on it to launch themselves forward. This can be useful if the player is in the Storm, or if the player is chasing a weak opponent who is healing.
  • The Bouncer can be used to quickly build upwards, as placing it and quickly building walls then a floor, allows the player to move upwards roughly 3 tiles.
