Rift-to-go

Added to Fortnite amidst the rift saga, the rift to go is one of the most beloved Fortnite utility items. This is because of how quickly it can perform its desired function. The rift-to-go essentially spawns a rift portal at your location, which sucks nearby players into it and drops them from the air.

Chug Cannon

If you picked up the chug cannon, you will essentially have an ambulance at your disposal. The chug cannon heals players within the nearby radius with every shot. A major downside of this item is that it takes up two weapon slots, which may cost you space for other guns that you like.

Shockwave Grenade

The shockwave grenade is one of the unique grenade types to exist in any game. Once you have thrown the grenade on the floor, it releases a shockwave that throws you across the map. Based on where you are positioned, you can either use this item to launch you out of the storm or send an opponent back into the storm.
