The Egg Launcher is a seasonal Explosive Weapon in Fortnite: Battle Royale, added in Season 3. It is only available during Easter or similar Easter themed Limited Time Events. It is a modified version of the Grenade Launcher.


The Egg Launcher shoots out an egg projectile which is affected by gravity and sticks to surfaces, but not players. After a short time the egg explodes dealing explosive damage to players and structures. This egg can deal damage to the player who shot it. These eggs deal more damage to structures than they do players, and cannot headshot.


The Egg Launcher ranges from dealing 67 Damage per shot to 77 Damage per shot (67 - 77 Damage per Second). The Egg Launcher uses Rocket Ammo - Icon - Fortnite.png Rockets and cannot headshot players.

The Egg Launcher shoots a Slow Moving Projectile. It has First Shot Accuracy enabled, but as it is an Explosive Weapon, it is largely irrelevant. There is no damage falloff on the Egg Launcher's projectiles, but they will bounce, and stick to surfaces for a short time before exploding.

Strategy Guide

Calculated - Emote - Fortnite.png
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 a Launcher near your person as it will deal the same damage to you as it does to enemy players.
  • You can shoot projectiles under a player and allow them to ride them. This is much more difficult than it is with a Rocket Launcher and is almost useless.
