Vehicle Mod: Cow Catcher is a Misc. Item in Fortnite: Battle Royale. It was added in Chapter 3: Season 2


Vehicle Mod: Cow Catchers can be used on Cars to add a Cow Catcher to the front of the Vehicle. This will enable them to deal more damage by ramming opponents and props. The Cow Catcher is also additional armor for the vehicle since it has a separated health bar and will absorb all damage from shots that hit it directly.

If you throw them on the ground, they will create a piece of immovable metal cover. It will take 800 damage from any source before breaking.
