How to Find and Use Remote Explosives in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2

Remote Explosives can be found randomly around the island where one would normally find a weapon or consumable: in rooms within buildings, by trees, etc.

They can also be found in chests and supply drops:

Remote Explosives can also be found by purchasing them from NPCs (non-playable characters) in exchange for Gold. They aren’t too difficult to find for free in other places, so it is not really worth buying them from NPCs unless you are desperate or have Gold to spare.

Using the Remote Explosives is simple and fun! Hold down the action button to aim your throw at a specific place, or just ‘fire’ to throw it in the direction you are pointing.
