Fortnite has introduced another exotic weapon to The Island with its latest v15.30 update, and this time it’s the explosive Burst Quad Launcher that’s getting the spotlight.

Season 5 of Epic Games’ wildly popular battle royale introduced a bunch of new features like Mandalorian bounties and sand tunneling, but one of the most exciting was the arrival of a new class of weapons known as exotic weapons.

Unlike most other weapons in the game, exotic weapons can only be acquired by purchasing them from specific NPCs dotted around The Island, and players will need to save up enough Gold Bars to afford them.

If you want to get your hands on the new Burst Quad Launcher exotic weapon, we’ve got the instructions you need to follow right here.

The Burst Quad Launcher can be purchased at one of two locations.

As with the other Exotic weapons, such as the Hop Rock Dualies and the Boom Sniper Rifle, you can’t simply stumble across the Burst Quad Launcher by searching random chests; you have to purchase it from an NPC called Fishstick.

Unfortunately, Fishstick can spawn at two separate locations on the Season 5 map, so you’ll need to take your chances. He can either appear wandering around Coral Castle or at the restaurant in Craggy Cliffs.

If you want to get your hands on the Burst Quad Launcher in Fortnite, here’s what you’ll need to do:

  1. Head to either Coral Castle or the restaurant at Craggy Cliffs on the map.
  2. Once you’re there, locate Fishstick (they will have a three-dotted speech bubble above their head).
  3. Speak to them and select the Burst Quad Launcher option.
  4. Click again to confirm the purchase.

How much does the Burst Quad Launcher cost?

If you want to get hold of the new gun, you’ll need to come prepared with 600 Gold Bars. If you’re struggling to make enough to purchase exotic weapons, check out our handy guide for making money in Fortnite.

The Burst Quad Launcher shoots two rockets every time you fire, and each rocket deals 42 damage to your opponents. It has a magazine size of 4, and a pretty extensive reload time of 5.4 seconds, so you’ll need to find cover if you’re reloading.

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.

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.

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.
