Fortnite adds ‘Chiller’ Freeze Trap in update v6.01

Introducing the ‘Chiller’ Freeze Trap, the newest addition to the Fortnite Battle Royale universe.

So what exactly does the Chiller do?  The Chiller applies icy feet to friends or foes, causing them to slide around with low friction.  This could mean for some interesting trap combinations, where you can force players to slide in to your spike traps, or off a building to their death!

Community Coordinator Sean Hamilton even teased the image on Reddit, saying:
