Epic Games have teamed up with Intel for an exclusive Fortnite cosmetics bundle – the Splash Squadron – which contains the Surf Strider skin. Here’s how you can get your hands on it. 

As Fortnite’s battle royale mode has progressed through the years, Epic Games have teamed up with different brands and entities for some impressive crossovers – ranging from a simple skin to a full-blown event. 

In addition to these, typically one-off crossovers, they also have deals in place where players can grab free skins on a semi-regular basis for things like playing on a certain platform or using a certain peripheral. 

We’ve seen this time and time again with the PlayStation celebration bundles, but now, it’s the turn of PC players who use Intel hardware as they can get the Splash Squadron set.

As we’ve mentioned, this set is only available for PC players who use certain pieces of Intel hardware so don’t get your hopes up if you aren’t eligible – it probably won’t be available to anyone else.

If you are eligible though, there are a few hoops you’ll have to jump through before you can claim the skin. 

You’ll have to head to the specific Intel page for the bundle, create an account, and then link it with your Epic Games account. To make things easier, Fortnite leaker HYPEX has dropped a step-by-step guide that you can follow below:

  1. Head over to softwareoffer.intel.com/Bonus
  2. Create a Digital Hub account
  3. Click ‘Redeem Offer’ and follow the steps to check your CPU is eligible for the bonus
  4. Complete the short survey
  5. Download the apps that are then shown 
  6. Link your Intel account to your Epic account
  7. The cosmetics bundle will now be yours!

Once it’s all verified and connected, the bundle will be waiting for you as a gift in Fortnite – you won’t have to redeem a code or download a free pack from the Item Store. 

You’ll then be able to rock the exclusive set – which contains a skin, pickaxe, and glider – during matches. It should prove to be a pretty rare set too, so you should get some bragging rights over other players.

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.
