Original article continues below.

Fortnite’s next collaboration will be with popular Sci-Fi franchise Star Wars, with the first look at the updated map and skins slowly trickling through.

Fortnite is a hotbed for pop culture collaborations over film, television, gaming, and other media. The game has hosted some iconic franchises over the last couple of years since blowing up into the mainstream.

However, their next collaboration is set to be one of their most epic yet, with the incredibly popular Sci-Fi franchise Star Wars set to join in on the fun in Fortnite. 

DisneyStar Wars is coming to Fortnite.

Fortnite dataminer ‘HYPEX’ managed to find a model of the Imperial Stormtrooper in game as a skin. The skin is purchasable in the item shop, however players can also obtain it by purchasing Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order in the Epic Games store. 

There’s also a map update on the way, with a ship resembling the Imperial Star Destroyer to be implemented somewhere on the map.

There’s bound to be more content to come out of this as well, with fans requesting things such as a Lightsaber Pickaxe and skins based off other popular characters in the franchise like Yoda or Luke Skywalker. 

Fortnite has cemented itself as not only a game, but a marketing tool for companies across the entertainment industries to promote their products.

Previous collaborations with Borderlands 3, Marvel, and John Wick have given Fortnite access to some of the most popular franchises in the world, as well as some subtle marketing.

The Star Wars collaboration comes just before the release of Star Wars 9, the next movie in the franchise set to capture fan’s hearts.

It also comes after the release of Disney+, a new streaming service which is currently hosting the Star Wars movies in the United States. 

While the two might not be linked, it’s hard to believe that both of these releasing at the same time is a coincidence.

It’s unclear as to when the Fortnite x Star Wars collaboration will go live, but it’s likely to be in the coming days. Usually, once data miners start surfacing information on such events, Epic Games usually goes about releasing more information quickly afterward.

We will keep you updated with all the latest news on the Fortnite x Star Wars collaboration as it comes live.

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.
