The Boom Bow in Fortnite has made its return after Epic Games added it in celebration for the last day of Winterfest.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1 is coming to an end and players can expect something new very soon as employees from Epic Games trickle back to work. But until then, players can enjoy vaulted weapons, at least once a day and old game modes making a return.

Yesterday, we saw the Tactical SMG make a return.

The Boom Bow is a Legendary-style weapon that uses shell ammunition. It has one shot per clip as you simply restring another shot after each arrow fired. This allows for a smooth firing mechanic without it being too overpowered or underutilized.

The Boom Bow is great for catching players out of rotation or landing shots on players who are on the move. It's also a great opening weapon with decent splash damage, so land a shot near the enemy and switch to your primary.
