College Fortnite pros quit after winning CSLeague Nationals on stream

Many top players have bemoaned the state of Fortnite’s competitive scene – but two college pros spoke out on the issue in a big way after taking a major championship.

Rather than celebrating their victory at the Collegiate Starleague Nationals, University of Georgia pros Mister.Lemon and JACK0 made a surprising statement on the main stage following their win.

“Honestly, we don’t really like the game that much,” one player answered after being asked what was next for the pair. “Epic is kind of messing around a little bit with the way they’re balancing everything.”

Retiring from Fortnite due to Epic’s esports blunders

He wasn’t alone in his sentiments; his teammate held a similar view on the matter, stating straight-up that the pair were officially retiring from the esport.

“We’ve decided that we don’t want to play competitive Fortnite anymore, so we’re going to move on to different games and probably, like, do different stuff,” he claimed.

Epic GamesFortnite’s newest season introduced a slew of changes that many top players weren’t overtly fond of – even taking away the game’s siphon mechanic from Fortnite’s core modes.

Mister.Lemon and JACK0 wouldn’t be the first competitive players to speak out about Epic’s esport practices, by far; in fact, massively popular Twitch streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins called out Epic in a scathing Tweet on April 28, claiming that Fortnite’s Arenas were “unplayable.”

“Arenas are unplayable with the streamer mode not working,” Ninja wrote. “Getting 10 people landing on me at the edge of the FIRST circle every single game. … please fix so I can actually play/practice.”

Epic’s April Update

Despite widespread player complaints, Epic Games have stood firm on their decision to remove Fortnite’s stretched resolution and siphon mechanic from its core modes, claiming that they “seek to avoid optional settings which provide players with a significant gameplay advantage.”

Epic Games have also been known to introduce huge changes to Fortnite just ahead of major competitive events, as seen in the induction of the Boom Box item the same day as the $100,000 WSEO tournament – which saw even the likes of TSM Myth joke that the company was “trolling.”

Some players are even speculating that season 10 might drop just before the Fortnite World Cup in July – leaving competitors nervous as to their chances in the competition.

Epic’s statement on this matter was largely open-ended in their April 26 Competitive Development Update, but appeared to hint that updates to the “ever-evolving game” would not halt for its competitive circuit.

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.
