Epic Games have pushed out another update in an attempt to fix item and animation issues in Fortnite.

The hotfix went live on Friday, September 28, but required no downtime, allowing players to quickly download the update and get back into the Battle Bus.

This is the second patch Epic Games have had to release since the start of Season 6, with the developers releasing a first hotfix on Thursday, September 27.

On September 27, Epic Games released a patch for the Calamity skin, who is the main skin for Fortnite Season 6, and upgradeable throughout the duration of the season.

However, Fortnite fans soon realised that when performing the Jubilation emote with the character equipped, Calamity’s boobs appeared to jiggle.

PC Gamer reached out to Epic Games about the situation, who called it “embarrassing and unintended”, and worked very quickly to remove the jiggling from the game.

Epic Games announced the latest hotfix on their Twitter account, and also made a post on the Fortnite subreddit informing players of the patch. Unfortunately, no patch notes have been released.

Epic Games are yet to reveal whether this update is to fix animation issues similar to the Calamity problem, or whether this could be a fix to the invisibility glitch that appeared yesterday.

We’ll update this article if/when more information is made available.

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.
