Remote Explosives are an Epic explosive weapon in Battle Royale. It allows the player to detonate an explosion from a distance. They deal extreme damage to structures, able to destroy almost anything. Remote Explosives drop in stacks of 3 with a maximum stack size of 6, and can be found in Chests, Supply Drops, Supply Llamas and Vending Machines.

As of the 6.00 patch, Remote Explosives are vaulted and only available in Playground.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • Remote Explosives are detonated when shot.
  • If a player other than the one that placed the Remote Explosives shoots and detonates it, the ownership of the Remote Explosives is transferred upon detonation. This means that Remote Explosives can injure teammates if an opponent detonates the Remote Explosives before they are activated.
  • Similarly, careless opponents that stay too close to their Remote Explosives can have the tables turned on them and even be killed with what had seemed to be their own weapon.
