The Egg Launcher is back. Here's how to get it in Fortnite.

The Egg Launcher is back in Fortnite and the annual egg hunt is once again underway. With the release of the Spring Breakout 2023 update for Chapter 4, Season 2, there are new chickens, cherry blossoms, and eggs littering the field of Epic’s battle royale. So how do you get the Egg Launcher? 

How to Unlock the Egg Launcher

In previous years, the Egg Launcher, much as its name suggests, launched eggs to deal explosive damage. While we don’t have explicit confirmation that it will deal the same damage as before, there are no new damage notes included in the v24.10 patch notes.

This means the Egg Launcher most likely deals the same damage as the Grenade Launcher, with slight timing differences for when the explosion occurs. Unvaulted for a limited time, there are a few ways to obtain this weapon in Fortnite.

  • The Egg Launcher can be found in chests and on the ground.
  • Epic and Legendary Egg Launchers can be found in rare chests. 

As with any other item, you may be able to take it off an opponent’s body if they had one, but you shouldn’t rely on that method to find this Fortnite weapon.

Along with chests, finding one on the ground, or looting it from a vanquished enemy, there are two new methods of obtaining this egg-themed Grenade Launcher.  

  • Purchase it from various characters — noted in the Patch is Cluck, who has some special items to sell to you.
  • The new Springtime Blowout Reality Augment — This new Reality Augment can grant you the Egg Launcher.

That’s how to get the Egg Launcher in Fortnite during the Spring Breakout 2023 event. The event runs until April 11, 2023, when the eggcitement will head back to the vault. Check out our Fortnite guides page for any other assistance in getting your chicken dinner.
