Introduced Patch 13.20

The Flare Gun is a Rare weapon in Battle Royale that was added in Patch 13.20.

It deals 60 damage with area of effect and starts fire. Once the bullet explodes, it acts just like a shakedown, it scans a very big area revealing opponents' positions for marking them. It also works through walls.

As for ammo, it uses its own ammo having a fire icon, its magazine size is 1 but you can use it 6 times.

For the moment, as it was recently released, the Flare Gun hasn't been added to Creative yet.

It was discovered that in Patch 13.3 that you now light campfires using it. Although, we don't know if it was a feature since flare guns were first added in Patch 13.20.
