Flare Gun Fortnite has been searched for in every update and patch for multiple seasons. Fans don't have to search any longer as it's finally here.

The Flare Gun has been rumored for some time now and recent leaks have confirmed it joining the arsenal of weapons players can choose from; it was only a matter of time when it would finally appear in-game. Players first started getting excited for the flare gun when they saw Jonesy fire a flare in a short released on June 21 and now they have one themselves.

Flare Gun Added in Fortnite Patch 13.20

The Flare Gun is a designated rare weapon, so it won't be the easiest or hardest weapon to find and can be looted from normal chests. It has a magazine size of 6 and a fire rate of 0.39 seconds. If players manage a direct hit with the slow moving projectile, it will deal 60 damage.

The Flare Gun has a reload time of 1.5 seconds, but with no ammo designation, it is possible that the weapon won't actually need to be reloaded and will have to be discarded after firing the six shots players have on picking up the weapon.

It will start burning wood built structures and trees that the round comes into contact with, so it'll be a nice utility item to have when attacking.
