New Vehicle The Quadcrasher Coming to Fornite Battle Royale

The Quadcrasher

Epic Games as teased a new vehicle that will be coming soon in Fortnite Battle Royale and its called The Quadcrasher. With the recent addition of the Quad Launcher, it seems like this week is focused on Quad items.

The Quadcrasher seems like it will compliment the Quad Launcher pretty well this week with its release into the game. Epic Games adds some information about the vehicle stating,

Charge the boost to crash through structures or get some air!

With what we can make out from the information, it looks like the vehicle will be able to have a boost speed feature that can smash through walls and structures. IT also seems to be attached with a snow plow in the front of the vehicle which suggests that it will play in crashing the vehicle into objects or even opponents.

Currently, the AFK in the game can be used to crash into objects but it deals some amount of damage onto the vehicle. As far as the Quadcrasher is concerned, it would highly likely be immune to damage from the front where the “crasher” is attached, encouraging players to crash more into objects with more freedom.

The Quad Launcher that was just recently released into the game is also another deadly weapon that is handy in destroying structures or deal continues blows onto an enemy hideout or position. The Quad Launcher was long teased in the months before it actually showed up this week, the weapon can fire 4 rockets continuously that detonate on impact.

Quickly fire up to 4 rockets to blanket an area with explosive damage.
