How to Find and Use an Air Strike in Fortnite
Air Strikes come in Legendary (gold) rarity only. They can be found as floor loot, in regular or rare chests, and in a Supply Drop.

Keep clear of the falling missiles or you will get caught up and receive damage. These can cause some great damage in the middle of a build fight as it causes damage to both opponents and their builds. Players have a few seconds to try to escape the area which can be achieved by sprinting, or using Shockwave Grenades or Launchpads.
