The Boombox is the new item that players can get in Battle Royale. It was added early this morning (Sunday, December 30, 2018) for all players around the world across all platforms, whether it’s PC, console, or mobile. As the name implies, it’s literally a boombox, which is perfect considering that the world is celebrating the new year this week.

While you might think that the Fortnite Boombox functions similar to the beloved Boogie Bomb, that isn’t the case. Interestingly enough, you actually don’t use it specifically against enemy players. In addition, it doesn’t do any damage against players at all. Instead, its bombastic tunes will break through structures and buildings. Therein lies the purpose behind this very strange device you can wield right now.

You basically want to use the Fortnite Boombox for destroying any structure, including even skyscrapers and other large buildings. As for how you find it, you can find this epic item just chilling on the ground as normal loot and other places like chests as well. It is available right now in the game.
