American TV series, Fortnite collaboration after data miners found leaked files hinting at the crossover.

Ever since the massive collaboration between Marvel Studios and Epic Games, which saw the introduction of Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet to Fortnite for a limited time mode, fans have been calling for more and more Movie and TV show crossovers with the battle royale game.

The popular Netflix show, Stranger Things, is looking like it may be next to feature in the game, as files were found suggesting that new skins and objects related to TV series were found in the data files.

Epic GamesThe Fortnite x Marvel Thanos crossover was one of the first and most successful collaborations

According to data miner “Lucas7yoshi” it appears as if a full cosmetic Stranger Things set is planned to be released to players in a future update by Epic Games after recent leaks.

The tag name on the first set of cosmetic files about in-game objects was: “Cosmetics.Set.WeirdObjects,” the files found also contain a “Stranger Things” display name in the image within the data, indicating that the files for the collaboration have apparently already been added to Fortnite.

This is not the first leak detailing these weird objects for the Stranger Things collaboration as another data miner, “FortTory,” also revealed new sound files relating to the objects, titled such as “WeirdObject_Enter_1p_01..”

The files also hint towards the portal being a crucial part in the next event in-game, as they have added multiple new noises for the portal such as the portal expanding and being used.

The sound files play a similar noise to the portals which are currently in Wailing Woods, with many fans expecting that they will play a part in the upcoming collaboration, potentially allowing players to travel to the “Upside-Down,” which was a parallel universe seen within the Stranger Things series.

Despite all of the data files released, It is unknown just what this “weird object” will have in store for Fortnite fans but many are looking forward to see what Epic Games will pull off this time.

Many fans of Stranger Things were also anticipating the addition of a Demogorgon to Fortnite whether it would be introduced as a character or as part of the cosmetic set, however there’s no known plans to include them as of now.

It is worth noting that these files are were leaked by data miners and Epic Games may decide to alter or remove some of the content before making it public to the player base.

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.
