With ‘The End’ in-game event expected to take place soon in Fortnite Battle Royale, data-miners have uncovered where the countdown timer for it will be located on the map.

In-game events have become a staple of Fortnite tradition for well over a year now, ever since the massive Rocket Launch that took place during Season 4.

Epic Games have used them as a way to mark the conclusion of one season and the start of the next, offering a sort-of transition from one chapter to another. 

While nothing has been confirmed as of yet, all indications are that the event which will close the book on Season X will be called ‘The End.’

As in the past, Epic look to be adding an in-game timer that will countdown to when The End will start, and the location for where the timer will be placed has been leaked, thanks to data-miners ‘spedicey1‘ and ‘HYPEX.’

The image above is rendered from files found in the back end of the game, and it indicates that the timer will hover over Dusty Depot.

As can also be seen in the picture, Dusty is the location where a launch pad for a rocket was placed near the start of Season X and periodically added to throughout the various weekly updates.

The appearance of the timer at this very point on the map strongly suggests that the rocket will have something to do with the event, a theory that has been supported by various other leaks over the past few weeks.

As for when the event is expected to take place, many believe it will happen on October 13, since that has been confirmed by Epic to be the final day of Season X. 

What is ‘The End’ event in Fortnite?

Dexerto / Epic GamesThere have been a lot of leaks about The End event in Fortnite.

Aside from kicking off Season 11, many believe that The End will also mark the end of the Fortnite map as everyone currently knows it.

Some are of the mind that Epic will release a whole brand new map for the new season, while others contend that it will just be massively overhauled, with numerous locations taken out in favor of new ones.

Epic GamesThe End in-game event could wave goodbye to a lot of what’s currently in Fortnite, including the map.

Whatever does end up happening, all signs point to some sort of massive change coming to the popular battle royale title, although, of course, nothing has been confirmed so everyone will just have to wait and see.

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.

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.
