Magneto Power gauntlets have been added to Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 as a new item following a mid-season update. Here’s how and where you can find them during your Battle Royale matches.

Wastelander Magneto has been highly anticipated for some time. Epic Games first added him to this season’s Battle Pass, but was locked behind a time gate, and then later placed as an NPC on the island.

Fortnite’s July 2 update finally released the skin and various cosmetics for players to get by completing Magneto’s quests. Magneto’s Power gauntlets have also arrived in Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode. Without further ado, here’s how to find them during your matches.

How to get Magneto Power gauntlets in Fortnite

To get the Magneto Power gauntlets in Fortnite, you’ll need to find the item in floor loot, loot chests, supply drones, supply drops, or purchase it from the Wastelander Magneto NPC for 400 Gold during a Battle Royale match.

Once you get your hands on Magneto’s gauntlets, you can hurl metal shards at your enemies to deal damage. This works similarly to Avatar’s Waterbending Mythic with infinite ammo and small cooldowns.

But, you can also protect yourself from incoming shots from opponents by summoning several shards to create a shield. It’s important to note you can only use one function at a time, so you can’t defend yourself while shooting.

Epic Games has described them as: “A pair of curious gauntlets seemingly imbued with the power to control metal with the user’s mind and gestures.” Despite them being expected to release as a new mythic item, they have been released as a Rare rarity item.

How to travel in the air while using Magneto Power in Fortnite

To travel in the air while using the Magneto Power gauntlets in Fortnite, you will need to equip the item and then simply run and jump to glide through the air with its Low Gravity effect.

The third Magneto Battle Pass quest from Page 1 has set the challenge: “Travel distance in the air with Magneto Power equipped.” To complete the quest, you will need to fly with Magneto’s gauntlets for 300 meters across the Battle Royale map.

The easiest way to tackle the quest is to head to the top of mountains or large buildings and jump off them. The higher the better, as when the Magneto Power gauntlets are equipped, the Low Gravity makes you immune to fall damage. If successful, you will receive the Magnetized Scrap Pickaxe as your reward.

It is also worth noting that these Magneto Power gauntlets are unable to be used in any of Fortnite’s in-game tournaments.
