Ever since it was released a couple of weeks ago, the item that everyone wants to get their hands on is the guided missile launcher. The fact that it can be precisely controlled and deals high damage makes it a highly sought after piece of equipment. Unfortunately, it seems like if you were looking to use it anytime soon, you’ll be sorely disappointed, as developer Epic Games has revealed that the weapon has been temporarily removed from the incredibly popular game.
According to the developer’s official Twitter account, which is where the news was initially revealed, it was discovered that the launcher is currently suffering from an animation issue, which was the cause of the removal.
As of the time of this writing, it’s unknown when the launcher will be added back into the game, so until then, players will just have to settle for the normal Rocket Launcher or the grenade launcher for all of their ranged explosive needs.
In other Fortnite news, today v3.5 of the popular game was officially released, which adds a new item Port-a-fort, as well as a slew of other items.
Due to an animation issue with the Guided Missile, we’re temporarily disabling it until we have a fix. We’ll update you once it’s resolved!
