Introducing Fortnite's sticky 'Clinger' grenade

Refund option also in the works.

The latest Fortnite update - v3.6 for those keeping count - adds a fun new weapon to the mix. It's the Clinger, a high explosive device attached to a bathroom plunger. Fire it at something, it sticks, it explodes, job done.

Also introduced - and then yanked offline for some behind the scenes fixes - is a self-refund option. This will let you return costumes, emotes, gliders, harvesting tools and back bling to the store for a V-Bucks refund. There are limitations, however: you can only ever do this three times per account, and the items must have been purchased in the last 30 days. It isn't applicable to Battle Passes, Founder's Packs or similar premium items.

RIght now the system is still back in the garage for what Epic calls "usability improvements". We'd expect it to be back online soon, what with Fortnite's Season 4 expected to begin next week.
