Use Fortnite Stink Bomb to force enemy to reposition

In the update v4.4 Epic Games added Stink Bomb grenades to Fortnite Battle Royale. DrLupo uses the Stink Bomb to force a fortified player to relocate and then try to take him down.

About the Stink Bombs / Stats

The Stink Bomb explodes into a cloud on impact and slowly damages anyone inside it (Damage Over time or DoT). The Stink Bomb deals 5 damage per half-second, 10 DPS up to 90 max. So essentially, if a player has only 100 health and not shield, he still won't die if he stays in the total 9-second duration inside the Stink bomb damage radius.

The stink bomb grenade can be found in floor loot, chests, and vending machines and found in stacks o 3 with a maximum stack of 5.

Tactical Usage

The best way to use the Stink Bomb is to force an enemy to relocate from a certain location, like when camping on a roof of a building, inside or on top of a fort, etc.

It's also can be very useful when you are fighting in CQC and you have a clear health pool advantage over your opponent, you can just throw it on the floor and finish the job.

About the stink bomb gameplay video

In this Twitch clip from DrLupo stream, you can see DrLupo taking advantage of the Stink Bomb to force the enemy, who is currently fortified, to move out from his current position.

This works out great for him, the enemy moves out and try to build to protect himself in his new position. DrLupo continues to put pressure by destroying his builds and when that player had no other chance after a second stink bomb grenade, he bails out, but DrLupo is ready for him and takes him out in the air in the second jump with a beautiful shoty elimination when that player is still in mid-air.

Stink Bombs are very useful in build fights where a player sees your building up and coming to him. This way, you force that player to move and blind him to a certain degree, as you build up to gain a high ground.

Fortnite Battle Royale is a very dynamic game, and of course, there are many uses for the stink bomb grenade but this one is an important one and I thought it's good that I bring it up.
