Fortnite Season 8 Pirate Cannon: What You Need to Know
With Fortnite‘s Season 8 now live, we leave behind the wintry theme of Season 7, replacing it with lots more green, lava and a good serving of pirates. Not only that, but there’s a new way of dealing with those pesky landlubbers aiming to bring down your makeshift fort and steal your booty. Here’s what you need to know about the Fortnite Season 8 Pirate Cannon.
In the hierarchy of piratey things, a Pirate Cannon ranks pretty high. The one introduced in Fortnite Season 8 doesn’t disappoint either.
You’ll find the Fortnite Season 8 Pirate Cannon similarly to how you get your hands on the other weapons in the game –by exploring the environment. Drop down from the Battle Bus, make it to the ground, start moving and keep praying to the RNG gods as you dodge bullets, fists and projectiles.
Once you do find a Fortnite Season 8 Pirate Cannon, you can push it into position, facing whatever it is you want to blow up and fire. Its cannonballs are quite devastating over longer distances, but there’s also a twist. You can hop in the cannon and launch yourself through the air as well.
If you’ve ever dreamed of becoming a pirate that leads a secret life as a circus performer when nobody is watching –or those that do die shortly after–, this is arguably the closest you’ll be able to get to it. The only downside is that you can’t carry it in your pocket, backpack, or wherever Fortnite weapons are kept.
Regardless if you’re using good old cannonballs filled with explosive gunpowder or yourself, the Fortnite Season 8 Pirate Cannon packs a wallop. Both cannonballs and players can plow through a number of objects before exploding, dealing damage and knocking back other players.
In terms of damage numbers, you’re looking at 100 damage dealt on direct hits and 50 damage dealt to anyone in a small radius around the point of impact.
That is what you need to know about the Fortnite Season 8 Pirate Cannon.
