The latest weapon to be added to the popular battle royale is the Air Strike cannister. The description from Epic Games is "Throw this down to get help from above!". As it sounds, throwing this canister down will release colored smoke that calls in a flurry of missiles from above. When the canister comes to rest, missiles will spawn after a short delay.
The missles spawn about 120 meters above the cannister and aim for random points within a 9 meter radius - a total of 20 missiles will spawn and has an explosion radius of 3.5 meters.
Epic have also listed the damage details:
Missile damage to players: 75
Missile damage to structures: 200
This items can be found from Floor Loot, Chests, Supply Drops, Vending Machines and Llamas. It drops in stacks of 1 and you can stack up to a maximum of 2.
