Scythes are a type of weapon in Fortnite. Long-handled, they are similar to spears; but while spears are excellent at jabbing type attacks, scythes utilize a sweeping attack.

    • Heavy attack - Quick Slash - Attack that does increased damage and knockback.
  • Laser Scythes

    • Heavy Attack - Double Slash - Attack that damages and knocks back enemies in a wide cone.
