Not only is this a great weapon for pushing rushing enemy’s back and buying you some time, but you’ll also need to craft one in order to complete one of the week 2 challenges, set to go live on Thursday, Mar. 25.
If you’re struggling to figure out exactly what you need to craft one, we’ve got you covered below.
How to Craft a Mechanical Shockwave Bow in Fortnite
To craft a Mechanical Shockwave Bow in Fortnite, you’ll need to have a Mechanical Bow and 2 Shockwave Grenades in your inventory.
As long as you’ve got these, go ahead and open up your inventory (I on PC, Up on the d-pad on consoles) and tab over to the ‘Crafting’ screen.
Now select the Mechanical Bow from your inventory. You should see ‘Mechanical Shockwave Bow’ appear as a crafting option.
Go ahead and select this and then press X on Xbox, Square on PlayStation, Y on Switch or E on PC to craft it.
The Mechanical Shockwave Bow will then be added to your inventory, replacing your old Mechanical Bow and removing your Shockwave Grenades in the process.
What Does the Mechanical Shockwave Bow Do?
The Mechanical Shockwave Bow creates a shockwave on impact. This can be fired directly at an enemy, sending them flying backwards, or at the floor near them to have a similar effect.
