To coincide with its release into the game, Epic Games have released a short trailer highlighting the new Air Strike item.
Long story short, this looks like an item that everybody who takes Fortnite seriously (probably too seriously) will hate.
From initial inspection, it looks like it will be ridiculously overpowered, it completely overwhelming an enemy squad and breaking down their structures.
The only saving grace of it is that it doesn’t seem to do too much damage per “grenade”, but the sheer volume of them coming in might be a tad much. Sure, you could hold down your walls to keep them intact, but what if the enemy also fires at another wall while the Air Strike is coming down.
Thoughts? Though it’s probably more of a stretch than the other things lifted by Fortnite from Apex, it doesn’t look too dissimilar to Bangalore and Gibraltar‘s ultimate abilities.
