Fortnite Leaks Shed Light on the Upcoming Explosive Kunai

The entire Fortnite community has been waiting for a long while in order to get their hands on the Naruto Fortnite skin.

While the wait has been a long one already, there's a high chance that we won't have to wait for too long. Recent leaks that surfaced after the Fortnite 18.30 update gave us an insight into the stats of the upcoming Kunai explosives.

The Kunai is something that is tied to Naruto, and there were rumors of such a weapon arriving in Fortnite for a long time now.

And since leaks surrounding this weapon has finally surfaced, it's easy to say that the weapon itself and Naruto aren't that far out.

Everything we know about the Kunai explosives

As mentioned before, there's no set date for this weapon to arrive. But there's a high chance that we may be seeing both the Kunai and the Naruto Fortnite skin towards the tail end of Fortnite Season 8.

Those who've been following ninja themed anime will know that the kunai is a throwable weapon. It's not going to be any different in the Fortnite universe either.

That being said, kunais were used as explosives in Naruto by tying a paper bomb to them. That's a feature that Fortnite will be implementing with the weapon.

This weapon will have a 4 second recharge cooldown and a range of 300 metres. You will have to wait for 1.5s between two consecutive shots. And finally, just as you cook a grenade, you will be able to cook the Kunai for around 0.15s.

These stats could possibly be altered before it makes it into the game. Or if these kunais are exceptionally overpowered, they might be nerfed later on.

But for now, let's just wait and see when this weapon makes it to the game in the first place.
