Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1 brought back the Clinger, which is a throwable exploding item that you can use to dish out some serious area damage to multiple enemies in one go during combat.

One of the Fortnite Chapter 3 Weekly Quests requires you to use a Clinger to deal damage to players, so we’ll go over everything that you need to know about this item, including where to find it.

What is a Clinger in Fortnite?

The Clinger is a grenade attached to a plunger that you can throw to make it stick to any surface or player on Fortnite Island, and it will then explode after three seconds, dealing area damage to surrounding enemies.

You can effectively use this by throwing the Clinger at your opponent’s feet before opening fire on them with your weapons, and you can also use it to blow up any protective structures that they build.

Clingers can be found as loot on the floor and in chests all over the Island, but we recommend heading to the Tilted Tower POI as it contains several buildings filled with chests for you to search through.

We advise practicing caution when looking for Clingers as other players will also be looking to complete this week’s challenge, so you might face some competition from them after spotting this item.

One of the Chapter 3, Season 1 Fortnite Quests tasks you with using a Clinger to deal 100 damage, so you can get this done by throwing the item to either completely eliminate one enemy or hurt the health of multiple foes.

Since this throwable has a decently large explosive radius, you should be able to get this done without too much of a hassle, and you can improve your chance of success by using the Clinger on a downed enemy.
