Since the beginning of the new season, Fortnite has been adding new cosmetics and elements to the game. A lot of other weapons were also added, the Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 trailer teased a throwable rift and now this weapon has got the name Junk Rift and has been added to the game after the v21.10 update. A Junk Rift can be thrown and it will spawn a larger object where it’s thrown. It also drops something on whatever structure or people that are below it. This makes it a powerful tool that can prove to be brutal if it is used wisely.
How to find the Junk Rift in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3
Junk Rifts were first introduced to Fortnite in the 10.10 update. However, they were removed in the 11.0 update because they seemed to be overpowered for the game. Since the rifts spawn a larger object above the point they’re thrown and drop it on whatever structure or people are below it. The rifts dealt heavy damage like 200 on direct hit and 100 damage through shockwaves. This made it an overpowered weapon for the game during those times.
As of now even after the v21.10 update Junk Rifts are amongst the rarest weapons to be found in the game even when they exist in the loot pool. One of the best ways to look for them is in places of large occurrences of loot. There are high chances of getting at least one Junk Rift.
Since the Junk Rift is a rare weapon to be found in the game, players must keep searching for it wherever they find massive loot. If they manage to get their hands on a Junk Rift it is easy to get an overpowered advantage against other players which could also help them with the match. Currently, this is the only effective way to find Junk Rift in Fortnite after the v21.10 update.
