Bottle Rockets coming soon to Fortnite

Fortnite's in-game message of the day has updated to feature a new item coming soon to the game: Bottle Rockets! Though their purpose isn't yet known, they appear to be a new explosive weapon, possibly to be used over long distances.

Here's how they look:

"Loud, bright, and dangerous! Warning: do not light indoors."

If past updates are anything to go off, the Bottle Rockets should be released early this week in Fortnite Content Update v7.30 and won't require any downtime to be patched in. We'll update this post if any additional information is released.
