The Lump of Coal is a Common item found in Fortnite: Battle Royale. It is a throwable, ranged weapon that was introduced during Winterfest. It is used for stroking fires. When thrown into a burning campfire, the fire will automatically stroke, saving you 30 wood. It is found in stacks of 5 and can also be used to throw at players do deal 20 damage, similar to a Rusty Can. It also does 20 damage to structures. When it makes its impact when thrown, the Lump Of Coal will drop to the ground as an item, allowing you to pick it up again (similar to a Bandage from a Bandage Bazooka)
