The Air Strike was a explosive utility item in Battle Royale. It could be thrown, and upon landing it created a red cloud around the landed area that plays siren sounds. After this, 20 missiles would rain down on the surrounding area that damage and destroy any nearby players or structures.
The Air Strike was vaulted on Patch 10.00, making it only available in Playground and Creative. It was probably vaulted due to it being quite impractical. When it was vaulted the max stack was increased to 4.
