Epic Games tweeted via the official Fortnite Twitter account that the 8.20 Content Update will arrive April 2nd at 8AM EST. The update will include the new Explosive Bow, which we know quite a bit about already. Here’s the announcement in it’s entirety.
The Tweet mentions that no down time will be required, which makes sense as many of the game files surrounding the Explosive Bow have already been explored by data miners. We currently know how the bow will look when shot, what it will sound like, and the pullout animations. The one question on everyone’s mind? Structural and player damage. That will determine how effective this new weapon is and how big of an impact it will have on the meta.
