Fortnite Season 3 begun only a week ago and it came with Jason Mamoa’s Aquaman. However, this isn’t the end of the superhero antics as depending on where you live you’ll soon be able to watch Batman Begins in-game. Aside from an impending showing of a Christopher Nolan movie, Epic Games have also added Fireflies. Here you’ll discover what they do in Fortnite and how you get a firefly jar.
There’s a lot of unique aspects about Fortnite Season 3 such as the map partly being flooded as well as infested with loot sharks that you can ride. There’s also a new charge shotgun you can wield but some of the community have regarded it as next to useless.
While the charge shotgun might not be useful, fireflies are another weapon you can use at your disposal once you get a firefly jar.
What do fireflies do in Fortnite?
Some people are asking what do fireflies do in Fortnite and the answer is that they’re available for you to catch in jars.
Once you catch a group of fireflies in a jar, you can then throw this item at other Fortnite players similar to a Molotov.
Throwing the jar will result in players and structures being set ablaze thanks to a small explosion.
Player damage is reported to be 40 with environment damage being 20.
However, first you match a group of fireflies in order to turn them into a weapon of mass destruction.
How to get a firefly jar in Fortnite
You get a firefly jar in Fortnite by approaching fireflies around the map and pressing the interact button when up-close.
A jar should already be in your inventory so you all need to do is search the Fortnite map at night for a group of fireflies.
As for where they spawn, they are said to be found mostly near the woods and around campfire locations.
Once you do find a pack of fireflies, you needn’t worry about spooking them away. Just approach, press the interact button, and you’ll have your firefly jar.
