Spire Assassin's personal recycler.
— In-Game Description

The Spire Assassin's Recycler is a Mythic Explosive Weapon in Fortnite: Battle Royale. It was added in Chapter 2: Season 6. It could be obtained by eliminating the Spire Assassin boss at The Spire.


The Spire Assassin's Recycler sucks in environmental structures. When a structure breaks, it gains Ammunition and the materials are deposited in your inventory. When you shoot, it shoots out the materials you harvested into a single projectile which has bullet-drop. It has a somewhat medium-sized radius. Player built structures do get damaged but do not give you junk. Using the suction feature deals one damage at an unknown rate but this is not advised to be used in battle.


The Spire Assassin's Recycler deals 86 Damage per shot (86 damage per second). The Spire Assassin's Recycler uses Junk Ammo - Icon - Fortnite.png Junk.

Strategy Guide

Calculated - Emote - Fortnite.png
The risk was calculated... but I'm bad at math.
This section outlines a strategy. Feel free to add tips, tricks and general advice about the topic.

  • You can weaken an object with your Harvesting Tool and use the Spire Assassin's Recycler to break it due to how much slower it harvests materials, with the added benefit of also farming materials.
  • The splash damage on this weapon can allow you to damage players around walls.
  • It's range allows you to get some distance between the enemy then use the splash damage to damage them


Chapter 2: Season 6

  • Update v16.20: Added the Spire Assassin's Recycler in Mythic rarity.
  • Update v16.30 Vaulted The Spire Assassin's Recycler as the Spire Assassin is not longer present at the Spire.


  • The weapon's name and function is similar to the Junk Jet in Fallout 4, which is a weapon which loads pieces of junk into it, to fire at enemies and deal damage to them.
