The Junk Rift was first revealed via Fortnite's in-game newsfeed Monday afternoon. True to its name, the throwable item drops a huge clump of junk in the area it is thrown. Some fans originally assumed its impact would be much more like a smoke grenade, but this addition is far more based on area-of-effect damage than anything else. While this new item likely won't totally overhaul the Battle Royale meta as it exists today, it's certainly a neat addition to the game at large.

As for the ever-evolving map of Fortnite Season 10, this week's new location is an explosion site full of glitched consumables. The mysterious point of interest was preceded by Dusty Depot, Tilted Town and Retail Row earlier this month. It's a bit disappointing that these broken items don't offer new abilities for players, but the fact that they randomly switch buffs is an interesting concept. Depending on the changing needs of a given Battle Royale match, a glitched consumable can either be a saving grace or your worst nightmare. Leaks had suggested glitched consumables would be coming to the game, but now fans can finally see how they function.

Fortnite is available now on PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC and mobile. The 10.10 Content Update is live now.
