How to Drop A Weapon in Fortnite

In Fortnite, it’s possible that you can drop items to other players. It doesn’t matter which mode you are playing either. You can be playing PvE (Save the World) or Pvp (Battle Royale).

Battle Royale players may wish to drop weapons or ammunition to their squad mates. You’re also able to drop other items from your inventory such as health, armour, traps and anything else you’re carrying.

In Save the World, you may wish to drop weapons so that players in your party can help defend the objectives better. You can only drop crafted weapons, not actual schematics.

Unfortunately, the main method of scamming in Save the World involves going to someones Homebase and trading weapons. After dropping your weapon, you are likely going to be kicked from the base, losing your weapon. Its recommended to keep your wits about you and be careful whilst trading.

Below, we have a quick guide for dropping items in Fortnite on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Meanwhile, we have many more Fortnite guides covered here at PwrDown.
