Fortnite Battle Royale Update Adds “High Explosives” Game Mode, Boogie Bomb Item & More

Share this:

A new Fortnite update has arrived just in time for the holidays! Epic Games is focusing on Fortnite Battle Royale with this patch, adding a new Limited Time Mode, called “High Explosives,” and a fun new item, the “Boogie Bomb.”

Currently, the 50 vs 50 Limited Time Mode is running, and will be available until December 28. Once that ends, players will be able to experience the High Explosives mode, up until January 2.

The new Boogie Bomb item, however, can be experienced right now. It’s like a normal grenade, but instead of simply exploding and causing damage, it also forces enemies to start dancing. While dancing, enemies can’t build, fire their weapons, or use any items.

Here’s all you need to know about the Boogie Bomb and High Explosives:


Thrown like a normal grenade, but this explosion is dazzling.

Any players inside the blast radius are forced to dance.

When boogie dancing, you are prevented from building, firing weapons, or using items.

Drops in stacks of 1 with a stack limit of 10


Can be found in treasure chests and supply drops


This Limited Time event is available on Dec 28 and ends on Jan 2

Weapons are limited to only … Snowball Launchers, Rocket Launchers and all types of Grenades.

Traps are disabled.

Regular consumables are still available.

Will you be trying out the High Explosives playlist? Let us know.
