Stink Floppers are consumed to heal 20 HP. They can only be consumed at less than full HP.

Stink Floppers can be thrown by holding the Aim button and using the projectile arc to guide them. Once landed, it will replicate the effects of a Stink Bomb, and create a cloud of toxic gas that does 5 damage per tick to players inside it. It has an identical effect to that of the Primal Stink Bow.


Stink Floppers can be found by Fishing anywhere on the map.


Stink Floppers heal 20 HP. They take 1 second to consume.

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.

  • Stink Floppers are useful to gain a small amount of health quickly, but differ from normal floppers in terms of situational applicability. Since they mimic Stink Bombs when thrown, it could be strategic to use them to draw out hiding enemies, or stir up a battle by forcing an enemy out of a position.
  • They can be used to spot enemies that are hidden. Throw it and when Damage per second indicators show, shoot underneath them and the enemy will be spotted.


Chapter 2: Season 6

  • Update v16.00: Stink Floppers are introduced along with the new season, and heal 20 HP, along with being a fishable Stink Bomb. They are added to the Fishing Collection Book and come in four versions:
    • Stink Flopper
    • Blue Stink Flopper
    • Clown Stink Flopper
    • Purple Stink Flopper


  • Stink Floppers resemble a Psychrolutidae, commonly known as a Blobfish. The fish only appears in its "blobby" shape due to muscular damage to the fish from being taken from an area of high pressure to low pressure.
