As the latest v15.30 update hits Fortnite, the game has introduced a new exotic weapon called the Chug Cannon, which could be a game-changer when playing in squads.

Epic Games brought exotic weapons to The Island in Season 5 of Fortnite, and they’ve become highly desirable. The latest addition is the Chug Cannon, which was formerly referred to as the Slurp Bazooka when it leaked a while back.

Like the now-vaulted Bandage Bazooka before it, the Chug Cannon will heal both you and your teammates if fired at them, meaning this weapon will act as a great defensive strategy rather than an offensive one.

If you want to add this weapon to your arsenal, here’s exactly how (and where) to find it in the game.

You won’t find the Chug Cannon — or any other exotic weapon, for that matter — lying around on the ground or by searching through chests. You’ll need to locate an NPC called Remedy and purchase it from her.

Like many NPCs, Remedy can spawn in one of two locations. She will either appear at Craggy Cliffs or at Hilltop House which is just northeast of Pleasant Park. Fortunately, these two locations are very close to each other, so you can visit both in one match.

Here’s what you’ll need to do to get the Chug Cannon in Fortnite:

  1. Head to either Craggy Cliffs or Hilltop House, which is northeast of Pleasant Park on the map.
  2. Once you’re there, locate Remedy (she will have a three-dotted speech bubble above her head).
  3. Speak to her and select the Chug Cannon option.
  4. Click again to confirm the purchase.

You can purchase the Chug Cannon from Remedy.

How much does the Chug Cannon cost?

If you’re looking to get your hands on the Chug Cannon, know that it won’t come cheap. You’ll need to have 600 Gold Bars saved up to purchase it. We’ve got a guide for making money in Fortnite if you’re running low.

The Chug Cannon uses Crossbow Bolts and has a relatively quick reload time of 1.1 seconds. You’ll likely want to use this weapon for its healing properties, as it will restore 18 health to both you and your teammates when fired.

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.
