Firstly, the official name of this brand-new weapon is Grab-Itron. As the name suggests, this weapon enables players to lift objects and launch them at either opponents or buildings. The damage caused will depend on the object's size and the material of which it is composed.
What this means is that players can simply throw a vehicle or any other object at other players using this Fortnite gravity gun. Pressing the reload button will rotate the object around.
