Epic Games might have added their new Fishstick skin to Fortnite on December 26, but some sharp-eyed fans of the game think that the developer hinted at its arrival some time ago. 

At the beginning of Season 7, which was the launch of the v7.00 patch for Fortnite, there were several different loading screens leaked and then added to the game with all different kinds of art involved in them. 

However, one load screen from Week 2 of the game’s challenges seems to include something very fishy indeed.

This loading art, which was identified by Reddit user BrainiacJonesy as the one which hinted at Fishstick’s eventual arrival, has a few different sketched designs to the right side. 

At the time, nobody could really be sure if these were going to hold any significance at all, in terms of future skins.

Yet, BrainiacJonesy zoomed in to take a closer look and one drawing, in particular, does seem to look very much like the head of the new Fishstick skin.

If this is true, then we might be able to expect even more hints to be dropped in the future for Fortnite’s skin designs. This could include not only the texture packs we see featured in the game, but also promotional material like the loading screen designs as well. 

Whether or not any of the other sketches on the page will be turned into Fortnite skins in the future, though, remains to be seen.

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

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.
