An ingenious Fortnite fan may have found a way to make the Mounted Turret less overpowered, instead of removing it from the game entirely.

The item was added in the V6.30 update for the game as an item, allowing players to place it down and sit inside it to fire heavy rounds of ammunition at enemies in a short space of time.

Players of the game immediately found the item to be extremely powerful, and began to call for the Mounted Turret to be placed into the Vault and removed from the game.

However, a Fortnite fan on Reddit named alwinaind believes he may have come up with a solution that could mean we see less of the dangerous item on the map in the future, by making a simple change to how the item is classified.

Currently, the Mounted Turret is classified as a trap item, meaning it doesn’t take up a space in player’s inventories when it is picked up.

If the Turret was changed to become an actual weapon, players would be forced to choose whether they wanted to carry the item, but would be forced to drop another weapon such as a sniper rifle, or drop consumable items like bandages or shield potions.

The Mounted Turret was added to Fortnite in the V6.30 update.

Unfortunately, while this idea could work, there are currently no plans for Epic Games to make the change to this ultra-powerful item. The developers have already released two updates in an attempt to nerf the Mounted Turret, but players are still unhappy.

Professional players such as FaZe Clan’s Tfue and 100 Thieves player Parallax have both called for the item to be removed from the game, with Tfue calling labeling the Mounted Turret as: “One of the dumbest things Epic Games have added to the game, no joke.”

The Storm Scout sniper is one of the most sought-after Exotic weapons in Fortnite right now. While the weapon’s been in the game for a while in certain forms, players can now get the rifle with Mave. Here’s how you can find the weapon and the NPC as of February 24.

It’s safe to say that the the Storm Scout is one of the most powerful weapons in Fortnite right now. While the actual damage that it outputs is impressive, it also shows exactly where the storm/circle will form in the future, giving a pretty notable advantage to those who use it.

While the weapon has been available in a variety of ways over the past couple years since it’s inclusion, Epic has now thrown players for a loop by changing up where it’s available.

Mave and Storm Scout sniper rifle location

Epic Games
The Storm Scout sniper can now be found with Mave after the latest update from Epic Games.

While the Storm Scout sniper was previously available via the Lexa NPC near Hunter’s Haven, this is no longer the case. Instead, players will now have to travel a little bit further east if they want to pick up the powerful weapon.

As of February 24, the Storm Scout sniper rifle is available via Mave, just east of Catty Corner. Funny enough, she’s is located almost in the same place as Cole, who once sold the Hop Rock Dualies, so if you know where he is, you’ll be able to find Mave with ease.

If you’re still confused about what to do, here’s a step-by-step guide to help you out:

  1. Land in the island and go to the location seen in the image above (it’s the cliffside southeast of Catty Corner, overlooking the ocean).
  2. Go up to Mave, who will be looking at a shine-like object on the cliffside.
  3. Interact with Mave and tab over to the Storm Scout sniper.
  4. Purchase the sniper.
  5. The weapon will automatically show up in your inventory after the leave the menu.
Epic Games
The Storm Scout sniper costs 500 gold from Mave.

Like most Exotic weapon being sold at NPCs, the Storm Scout sniper rifle will cost players 500 Gold, so if you want the ability to get the weapon, you’ll need to save up a bit.

And that’s it! After you complete the above tasks you’ll have a Storm Scout sniper at your disposal. Of course, given the fact that we’re so close to the launch of Season 6, there’s always a chance that the location will change again in a few weeks.

We’ll keep this article updated for any further developments or changes regarding the sniper’s location should they arise. Until then, keep it locked to Dexerto.
