Category Battle Royale Items

The Eye of the Storm Tracker was a Rare Backpack Item mistakenly added to Battle Royale in the 4.2 Content Update. It was an item in your inventory which made your minimap track the next two storm circles instead of just the next one. The second storm circle would be shown as a yellow circle with a yellow line showing the quickest route there.

The Eye of the Storm Tracker was removed and replaced by the Jetpack almost 30 minutes after its accidental addition.

Availability

While it was in the game, the Eye of the Storm Tracker was available out of Chests.

Strategy

  • The Eye of the Storm Tracker allowed players to know whether or not their current position would last a long time. This item could tell you if it was advantageous to build a fortified structure to camp in and shoot from for two storm circles.
  • Knowing where the next two storm circles were provided a huge advantage late in the game where storm circles are small and knowing where to go and when is a must.

Trivia

  • The visuals on the mistakenly-added backpack were bugged; the inventory icon for the Eye of the Storm Tracker was a simple yellow backpack, while on your back or on the ground it would use the Skirmish Back Bling model, and unlike the Jetpack in your hand it was a buggy RC controller.
  • The Eye of the Storm Tracker is currently 2nd place for items with the fastest removal from the game. First place being held by the Zapotron.
  • This item's code was eventually reused for the Storm Scout Sniper Rifle.
