Fortnite content creator Ali “SypherPK” Hassan has discovered a clever trick using the Burst Quad Launcher to turn yourself into a mini-airstrike in Season 5.
Fortnite Season 5 gives players a vast arsenal of weaponry to help secure a Victory Royale, but some players are devising clever ways to take the weapons even further.
SypherPK has been a prominent member of the Fortnite community since its release. Being nicknamed the ‘Trap God’ for popularizing using traps as offensive tools, Sypher has paved the way for both fun and meta-defining strategies.
His latest trick pairs the Exotic Burst Quad Launcher with some other gadgets to turn yourself into a mini-airstrike.
How to create a mini-airstrike in Fortnite
You can purchase it for 600 Gold Bars from Fishstick who will be found in either Coral Castle or the restaurant at Craggy Cliffs.
If you don’t fancy spending the Gold Bars, you can always choose to kill him instead.
Once you have the Burst Quad Launcher, you need to find Bouncers and Shockwave Grenades. You should be able to just find these through looting or eliminating opponents.
With these three items in your inventory, you’re ready to rain hell on anyone coming your way.
Once you’ve spotted an enemy, build yourself into a box with the Bouncer on the floor. Throw a Shockwave Grenade at the ground and you’ll be propelled high into the air.

When in the air, fire the Burst Quad Launcher down on the enemy below, and they won’t know what hit them.
You can see SypherPK pulling off the trick perfectly in the video below.
As the enemy looks at your box waiting for you to peak or build-out, they won’t expect you to soar above their head and you’ll be able to land several rockets on them. Even if you don’t get the elimination, you’ll have closed the gap and they’ll be scrambling to build and put shield back on.
Fortnite is all about clever strategies to outwit your opponents, and this trick is sure to take them by surprise.

All Fortnite Chapter 3 Exotic Weapons locations
Exotic weapons are some of the rarest items in Fortnite, so here’s how you can get your hands on them in Chapter 3, Season 1.
Exotic weapons are some of the most powerful weapons that can help you secure a Victory Royale, so here’s where you can find each of these rare items in Fortnite Chapter 3.
There is a wide selection of weapons to choose from in Fortnite, with the most powerful one being Exotic weapons. These first appeared in Chapter 2, Season 5, and they’re the rarest items in the game.
With all the brand-new changes in Chapter 3, it was unclear if Exotic weapons would still be available in the game. Fortunately, they’re still around, but their locations on the map have changed.
Here are all the Fortnite Chapter 3 Exotic weapon locations.
Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1 Exotic weapon locations
All of these Exotic weapons have distinct attributes and using them can help you secure a Victory Royale. We’ll go over their locations on the map, along with the costs, and NPCs that you need to visit.
Boom Sniper Rifle
The gun is similar to the Heavy Sniper Rifle, with the biggest difference being that your targets will take 10 contact damage from the clinger, and then the projectile will explode and deal 60 bonus damage to them.
You can get this Exotic Weapon from The Scientist NPC in exchange for 600 Gold Bars. You can find this character roaming around The Sanctuary so head over there to get the Boom Sniper Rifle.
This Exotic, double-barreled beauty can dish out some serious damage to your opponents, and you can purchase it from Bunker Jonesy. This character is located near a trailer at the south side of The Joneses.

Purchasing this Exotic shotgun will cost you 600 Gold Bars. While the weapon has low range and a small magazine, it’s capable of annihilating your enemies in close combat, so it’s worth getting.
Chilli Chug Splash
The Chili Chug Splashes can be purchased from Guaco for 210 Gold Bars at Greasy Grove or collected from inside Loot Llamas. This Exotic Weapon can greatly benefit you and your teammates.
Hold down the fire button to aim where you want to throw it, and it will break open splashing nearby players. In addition to healing your teammates, it will also give them the ability to move faster.
Marksman Six Shooter
You can get your hands on the Marksman Six Shooter by purchasing it from the NPC Mancake for 400 Gold Bars. You can find this character inside the Butter Barn, southwest of Rocky Reels.
This “fast-firing sidearm” can dish out 24 damage-per-shot with a magazine size of six. While it doesn’t hold many bullets, the reload time of 2.1 seconds makes ensures that you have a more consistent fire rate.

Here’s everything you need to know about Fortnite’s Pizza Party item, including where to find it and what it does.
You can use Fortnite’s new Pizza Party item to share pizza slices with your teammates. Here’s where you can find Pizza Party and how you can use it in Fortnite Chapter 3.
The Pizza Party item is another new addition that greatly benefits your entire squad. You’ll also need to know where to find it for a Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1 Quest that requires you to ‘take pizza slices.’
Here’s everything you need to know about Pizza Party in Fortnite.
Where to find a Pizza Party in Fortnite
Here’s what you need to do:
- Head to the Pizza Pit restaurant
- Interact with Tomatohead to speak with him
- Select the Pizza Party item and purchase it
- Pizza Party will be added to your inventory
Purchasing the Pizza Party item will cost you 50 Gold Bars. If you don’t have this amount saved up already then you can check out our detailed guide on how to earn Gold Bars in Fortnite.
Alternatively, you can also collect a Pizza Party from Chests and Supply Drops or by destroying Loot Llamas. While this doesn’t guarantee that you’ll find the item right away, it’s certainly the cheaper option.
What does a Pizza Party do in Fortnite
Fortnite’s Pizza Party item recovers your Health and Shield. You simply need to approach it and press the ‘consume’ button to use it. You can also save it in your inventory by pressing ‘take’ instead.

While pizza slices can restore 100 Health, they will only recover up to 50 Shield. So, if you’ve already recovered your Shield, you may want to leave some slices behind for your teammates to use.
One Chapter 3 Quest tasks you with taking a pizza slice from a Pizza Party. You can get this done by simply aiming and throwing a Pizza Party down to the ground similar to how you would toss a grenade.
You can also feed pizza slices to a Klombos dinosaur by throwing a Pizza Party near one of them. While Klomberries are their favorite food, they won’t mind eating the slices and leaving behind loot for you to collect.
That covers everything you need to know about Fortnite’s new Pizza Party item. It can greatly help your entire squad when your Health and Shields are low, so it’s worth going out to find the item.
