Explosive Weapons are a type of weapon in Fortnite: Battle Royale that are used to launch explosives at targets, using rockets as ammunition They tend to be long ranged weapons and exceptional damage, but at the cost of low fire rate and high reload times.

Game mechanics
  • Players can damage themselves if they are too close to the blast. However, they cannot damage players on the same team.
  • In order to assist a teammate in "riding" a rocket, players should position themselves one in front of the other - the "rider" being in the front. The player with the launcher should crouch to fire in order to increase accuracy. When the firing player lets loose the rocket, the riding player should jump. If timed correctly, the teammate should land atop the rocket.
  • Rocket launchers are great at direct assaults against fortifications, but their rate of travel and source of launch are easy to detect. Grenades are more difficult to aim but, as such, it is more difficult to counter.
  • Rocket Launchers and Quad Launchers explode on impact, but Grenade Launchers have a set time before detonation.
  • Quad Launchers do not bounce, but they "fall" like grenades.
  • The Guided Missile is vaulted and is no longer accessible in any way.
