Fortnite New Recycler Weapon

The Recycler Weapon has officially gone live in Fortnite after previously being leaked.

The official description of the new weapon reads, “Harvest objects for Ammo, spit out densely packed projectiles of Junk! Watch out for the Shrapnel!”.

The new weapon does exactly as the description states, players are able to get ammo by using the Recycler as a harvesting tool and destroy any sort of material you can, the materials scavenged will then be useable as ammo. Once you’ve got a full supply of ammo for the Recycler, you can shoot it almost like a grenade launcher, but it shoots small balls of junk instead.

The Recycler doesn’t deal a great amount of damage but does come in three variants. These variants are Rare, Epic, and Legendary.

UPDATE: Thanks to @FN_Assist on Twitter, we have an even further in-depth look at the brand new Recycler Weapon. Check out their tweet below to see some detailed stats.

How To Get The Recycler Weapon

The Recycler Weapon can be obtained like all the other weapons in the game. You can find the Recycler in chests and as ground loot, but remember there are a total of 3 different variants to find.

Players will likely have a much higher chance of finding the Legendary Recycler in chests, as opposed to ground loot.
