The headline feature for Fortnite update 5.3 is the Shockwave Grenade, but there is plenty more to come in the latest Fortnite update. Last week the Rift-To-Go item was the flagship feature in Epic’s battle royale game, but there is always more to come.
The star addition to Fortnite update 5.3 is the Shockwave Grenade. After some heavy leaking in previous weeks, the new item has appeared on the in-game announcement screen, which almost certainly means that it will appear in the incoming Fortnite update. The item description reads: “Send yourself, allies, or enemies flying like a human cannonball! Grants immunity to fall damage.”
That said, the Fortnite Shockwave Grenade will not be the only change to the game: the Fortnite Quad Launcher might well make its way over from Save the World, but chances are that it will be saved for a future Fortnite update. Before we get to the new changes, make sure you’re caught up on our Fortnite week 7 challenges guide and the full list of Fortnite Tomatohead challenges. Done? Then here’s everything you need to know about Fortnite update 5.3.
Bounce into action in the v5.30 Content Update! Available tomorrow, August 28 at 8:00 AM ET (1200 GMT). There will be no downtime.

Fortnite updates typically land at 9am BST on Tuesdays but, this time, we will be getting our new grenade today at 1pm BST – that’s 8am ET and 5am PT for our american Fortnite friends.
You can see the in-game announcement that the Shockwave Grenade is coming soon on the screenshot above and the description makes it sound as if it is an Impulse Grenade crossed with a Launch Pad that you can use on yourself, teammates, and enemies. That’s without the fall damage that might concern you if you’re being catapulted across the map for miles.
