The Recycler has finally come to Fortnite Season 6. Here’s everything you need to know about the newest weapon in the game, including the stats and how to find it.
In the most recent content update, Epic added the first new weapon to Fortnite Season 6: the Recycler. Like most weapons, you can find it in floor loot and chests. The Recycler spawns in Rare, Epic, and Legendary rarity.
The Recycler is an interesting weapon, as it doesn’t take any normal ammo to use. Instead, you suck up materials and structures and use that for ammo. The maximum magazine size is 3, but there is a virtually unlimited pool of ammo all around you at all times.
As expected, the damage of the Recycler scales based on its rarity. Here’s a breakdown of the statistics:
- Rare: 75 damage
- Epic: 79 damage
- Legendary: 83 damage
This weapon probably isn’t worth upgrading if you find a blue one, as the damage difference doesn’t justify spending gold on an upgrade.
The Recycler works a lot like a Grenade Launcher does, but without the splash damage. You need to hit a player directly for it to deal any damage to them. It also isn’t too proficient at breaking walls with its primary fire.
With the limited use of the new weapon, we think it could be a tad underpowered. Right now, we don’t see much of a reason for someone to pick it up over an SMG, modded Bow, Shockwave Grenade, or additional healing item.
Despite this, it’s exciting to see Epic take new directions when creating Fortnite weapons. We’re excited to see what this means for the future of the game.

The Fortnite Reboot-A-Friend promotion returns for Season 6. Here’s how to earn free skins and cosmetics by playing with firends.

The popular Fortnite Reboot-A-Friend event has returned. Players can now earn free in-game cosmetics by bringing their friends back to Fortnite Season 6. Here’s how.
Epic Games have reintroduced the popular Reboot-A-Friend promotion to Fortnite Season 6. This event rewards players for bringing their friends back to the game. Playing with friends who haven’t been on Fortnite in over 30 days will net you some exclusive rewards.
We saw the same promotion run last year, but Epic revamped it for 2021 – this time offering players some substantial rewards for rebooting their buddies.
Unlike the first Reboot-A-Friend system, which ended in January 2021, players will earn points towards cosmetic rewards rather than rewards for each game they play. Players who reboot a friend will earn 100 points for their first game and 10 points for every game after that.
To unlock all of the rewards, you’ll need to earn 400 points. Here are the requirements for all of the Reboot-A-Friend rewards.
- 100 points: Reboot a Friend Spray
- 200 points: Heartbeat Wrap
- 300 points: Toxic Flash Glider
- 400 points: Plasma Carrot Pickaxe
You don’t need to rely on inactive players to receive your rewards, either. You need to Reboot someone to earn the 100-point bonus, but you can earn 10 points for every match you play with any friend.
If you reboot four friends, you can easily get 100 points per match and unlock all of the rewards in a single play session.
There’s no end date on the Reboot-A-Friend event as of now, but we assume Epic will change the prizes in the future. We’ll make sure to update you if they change any rewards or requirements.
You can disguise yourself as a prop in Fortnite Season 6 if you know where to go. Here’s where you need to visit.

Fortnite Season 6 allows players to disguise themselves as a prop to fake-out opponents. Here’s how you can turn into a prop, yourself.
The newest Fortnite season introduced a host of new mechanics to the game. The crafting system is the most obvious of the many changes, but there is a handful of others to explore.
One of these new mechanics reworks an old, controversial element from Chapter 1. Longtime players will remember the update in Season X, where crouching in Moisty Palms turned you into a prop.
Players were split on this change, with some using it for fun and others growing frustrated with late-game crouching. Now, in Chapter 2 Season 6, the feature is back and has greatly improved.
Fortnite Season 6 prop locations
Instead of allowing players to accidentally turn into a prop, Epic made it a lot more intentional. You’ll need to purchase this feature from NPCs in Season 6, and only a handful of them offer the upgrade.
This season, you can turn into anything from a mailbox to a trashcan to a Slurp Barrel – drawing opponents toward you. It can be a useful feature, and will undoubtedly make for some funny clips.
Only five NPCs offer this upgrade, however. These NPCs are:
- Bushranger in Pleasant Park
- Raz in Coral Crops
- Crustina in The Orchard/Tomato Town
- Jekyll in Steamy Stacks
- Snow Sniper east of Retail Row
The upgrade will only cost 75 gold – making it one of the more affordable options available.
Of course, it’s best to use this feature close to the center of the storm circle. Otherwise, you’ll need to rotate dressed as a prop – unable to farm or shoot at enemies without breaking your disguise.
We don’t doubt that disguising yourself as a prop will be a part of a future Fortnite Season 6 challenge. We’ll update this guide if/when Epic add more NPCs that offer prop disguises.
Are you wondering how to get your hands on the powerful Mythic Spire Jumpboots in Fortnite Season 6? Here’s a guide for you.

The Mythic Spire Jumpboots are one of two Mythic items currently in Fortnite Season 6. Here’s what you need to do to get your hands on them.
Of course, Epic added some new weapons and items to the game as well. One of those items is the Mythic Spire Jumpboots, and they’re pretty difficult to get your hands on. Here’s what you need to do.
How to get the Mythic Spire Jumpboots
The first step in your quest to obtain the Spire Jumpboots is to visit and eliminate one of the Guardians around the map (not including the one guarding The Spire). You’ll find these Guardians at the small spires around the map.
You can see the Guardians’ general locations on the map below, but they’re hard to miss in-game. If you land at one of the smaller spires, one will be waiting for you.
If you’ve already eliminated one of these Guardians, then you probably noticed that they drop a strange orb. You can carry the orb, but can’t do much else with it.
If you look closely, however, there’s a beam coming off of the orb, drawing you to The Spire and the Zero Point. If you take one of these orbs all the way to The Spire and put it inside the crystal waiting there, the Mythic Spire Jumboots will pop out for you. Here’s the full process:
- Eliminate a Guardian
- Carry the Orb to The Spire
- Insert the Orb into the circular crystal
These Jumpboots take up an inventory slot but are incredibly powerful. A double-jump with the boots prevents fall damage, and a triple-jump allows you to re-deploy your Glider.
As powerful as these boots are, they’re even more difficult to get. You’ll have to carry one of these orbs all the way from a Guardian outpost, then hope that The Spire is uncontested – a long-shot at any point in the season.
The good news is that you can sit in the passenger’s seat of a car with the Orb, making it easier to transport. Still, this is a tall task for players. Good luck!
