According to FNBRLeaks, a Twitter account known for data-mining, Freeze Traps are heading to Fortnite Battle Royale. This item would slow down and damage your opponents. Freeze Traps already exist in Save the World, Fortnite‘s PvE mode, but soon those who are going head-to-head with enemies might be able to use them too.
Looks like Freeze Traps will be coming to the game!

Unlike the Spike Trap, which can be an instant kill if your opponent doesn’t have high HP/a shield, Freeze Traps only do a small amount of damage. Actually getting your opponent(s) to activate the traps set is another layer of challenge. Though, let’s not forget Fortnite‘s Summer Skirmish included an epic win, thanks to strategically laid traps.
Still, considering the difficulty involved when using these Fortnite traps, it’ll be interesting to see how they might impact the landscape of Battle Royale.
