Epic Games has released a new update for Fortnite that introduces the Shadow Bomb grenade.

The Shadow Bomb can be found in floor loot, chests, Supply Drops, and Supply Llamas, and will shroud players in shadow for six seconds, making them invisible to players. While in shadow, players get increased movement speed, the ability to double jump, and the ability to wall jump. However, to balance things out, players are unable to attack, build, or loot.

That’s all for Battle Royale players this week. On the Save the World side, players get the new Duet assault rifle, which is “good for sustained fire due to its large magazine capacity,” according to Epic. This new weapon is available now from the Weekly Store.

Fortnite is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android.
