Fortnite content update 7.30 is coming soon, and early patch notes reveal some new features coming to Battle Royale.
Fortnite early patch notes for content update 7.30 reveals Battle Royale fans will be getting the brand new Bottle Rockets item.
When players log into Fortnite Battle Royale today the in-game message is teasing the arrival of Bottle Rockets.
These uncommon items look set to be coming in Fortnite update 7.30, but the exact mechanics of how it works remains to be seen.
Leaked assets appear to show that the Fortnite Bottle Rockets will work in a similar way to the Mounted Turret.
The description for the Bottle Rockets reads: “Loud, bright, and dangerous! Warning: do not light indoors.”
Fortnite Battle Royale fans have been speculating that the Bottle Rockets could work like a cross between the Boombox and an explosive weapon.
The leaked description for it seems to suggest it could deal major structural damage, so it could be another anti-building device.
The Bottle Rockets could be added just in-time to light up the sky during another Fortnite live event.
It’s rumoured that Fortnite Battle Royale may be getting a Chinese New Year event.
Fortnite content update 7.30 is set to drop on Tuesday February 5 – the same day as Chinese New Year.
And according to @FireMonkeyFN, it looks like Epic Games could have something in store for Chinese New Year.
They posted on Twitter: “I’m going to post a few images and such that I find on the Chinese fortnite site, as some of those are pretty nice, such as this one!”
Could the Bottle Rockets act as fireworks which Fortnite players set off during the Chinese New Year event?
It remains to be seen, but if it does occur then fans will have got plenty of in-game events during Fortnite season 7.
Just days ago Fortnite fans were treated to the live Marshmello event, which came a few weeks after the ice storm event.
Elsewhere, the Fortnite Trello revealed new fixes coming in upcoming releases.

• Battle Royale: Drop in frames when both keyboard+mouse and gamepad are plugged in.
