The Burst Quad Launcher is an Exotic Explosive Weapon in Fortnite: Battle Royale. It was added in Chapter 2: Season 5. It is an Exotic version of the Quad Launcher.


The Burst Quad Launcher works almost identically to the original Quad Launcher in terms of projectile velocity, gravity on the projectiles and the ability to damage the player who shot it.

The Burst Quad Launcher however, shoots out two rockets per shot, consuming only one ammunition. As such, the damage it deals can be multiplied by two to achieve its maximum damage numbers. As such, the launcher has eight shots in its magazine.

Rockets deal more damage to structures than they do to players, and you cannot achieve a headshot with one.


The Burst Quad Launcher deals up to 42 damage per rocket, with a maximum of 84 per shot. This yields 58.4 damage per second per rocket, or 116.8 maximum damage per second. It uses Rocket Ammo - Icon - Fortnite.png Rockets.

Strategy Guide

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.

  • Avoid shooting the Burst Quad Launcher near your person as it will deal the same damage to you as it does to enemy players.
  • The Burst Quad Launcher's rockets are affected by gravity, so bear that in mind when attacking a target far away.
  • You can shoot a Rocket under a player and allow them to ride it. This is less useful than a Rocket Launcher, as the Burst Quad Launcher rockets are affected by Gravity. Another one is that the Burst Quad Launcher shoots two rockets, and one of them could accidentally hit you, eliminating you in the process.

  • Update v20.00: The Burst Quad Launcher has been added to Creative.
    • Hotfix #1: The Burst Quad Launcher has been removed from Creative.
    • Hotfix #2: The Burst Quad Launcher has been re-added to Creative.


  • The configuration of rockets firing four shots per tube is physically impossible for the real life version of this weapon. Not only does the M202 FLASH not fire rockets, but it would fire one projectile per tube, not two.
