Our Fortnite Mounted Turret guide contains rarity details, damage stats, tips for using it and information on finding the new trap.
For the first time in Fortnite’s history, there’s a weapon in the game that’s both not a technically a weapon, and one that you can physically hop into.
The new Mounted Turret is supremely powerful, and capable of shredding buildings and enemy health bars alike. Thing is, it’s not a weapon - it’s a Trap. Pop it on the ground and it’s anyone’s to use as well, so you need to be extra careful an enemy isn’t going to hop in and pepper you with bullets while you sort out your inventory.
Below we’ve put together everything you need to know about the Mounted Turret, so you can get to grips with it right away:
