New Recycler Gun Added to Fortnite Season 6 – Recycler Location and Stats
How to Use the Recycler Gun in Fortnite
Epic Games has introduced a new gun in Season 6 Chapter 2 named The Recycler. This new gun can be found in Rare, Epic and Legendary variants.
The official description of the new weapon reads, “Harvest objects for Ammo, spit out densely packed projectiles of Junk! Watch out for the Shrapnel!”.
The Recycler does exactly as the description states. Fortnite players are able to get ammo by using the Recycler as a harvesting tool and destroy any sort of material you can, the materials scavenged will then be useable as ammo. Once you’ve got a full supply of ammo for the Recycler, you can shoot it almost like a grenade launcher, but it shoots small balls of junk instead.
