What Is The Prop-ifier? New Prop Gun Explained

Have you ever wanted to avoid your opponents by turning into a Prop? Well, now you can with the brand new Prop-ifier Weapon!

If you can get hold of this new weapon, you can use it to turn yourself into a prop and blend in with the environment. The official description for the new weapon states that when using a Prop-ifier, players will be presented with a holographic display of which props you can turn into.

Simply select which prop you want to turn into and you’ll be transformed into your prop of choice. Players are also able to move around but be careful as you’re not completely hidden.

Every now and then the prop will ‘glitch’ to allow opponents to spot you if they’re looking close enough. Check out the official gameplay trailer for the new weapon below.

Jump into Fortnite right now to find the Prop-ifier in chests, on top of Abductors and inside of the Mothership.

Fortnite August 10 Hotfix Patch Notes

Below you will find the official patch notes for the August 10 Fortnite Hotfix. This update does not require a patch download and will automatically update the next time you play Fortnite.


When using a Prop-ifier, you’ll be presented with a holographic display of your Prop options. Choose the Prop you want to be, then activate! As a Prop, you’ll be able to move around — but to be extra sneaky — you can choose to settle in place. You won’t be totally immune to a watchful eye, though. When settled, you’ll briefly glitch every now and then, kind of like old TV static. (It’s only a Prop, so it can’t be perfect.)

Where to find Prop-ifiers? They can be found from Chests, on top of Abductors, and in the Mothership.


  • The Aliens continue to make the Island their home: the availability of Alien Nanites from the ground has become greater.


  • Last week, Prop Disguise services from vendors were disabled due to an issue. We’ll let players know when these services are re-enabled.
  • Please note that the Prop-ifier is not present in competitive playlists.
