The $2,000,000 Fortnite Championship Series (FNCS) is into its second week of matches, so, here is everything you need to know about watching it. 

After the success of the Fortnite World Cup, professional players who compete in the battle royale have been searching for what is next in the roadmap for the competitive scene. The top answer, seeing as they aren’t any LAN events in the works, is the online FNCS. 

The Fortnite Championship Series has been around for a few seasons and allows players to test their skills in different variants of the battle royale in order to take home some big cash prizes. Epic Games have stepped things up compared to the usual FNCS, offering up a $2,000,000 prize pool for their invitational event.

FNCS Invitational event times and dates

While that had been chances for players to qualify via open qualifiers, the main interest in the new FNCS set-up is who has been invited. Epic revealed that the top 100 players from recent events would be involved – be it on PC, console, or even mobile.

As a further point, the developers noted that they themselves would be inviting up to 100 players to take part in the event, with the European solos portion of things kicking off on Saturday, May 16 at 6 pm BST/1 pm EST/10 am PDT/7 pm CET and running for three hours. After that, the NA East follows suit before the NA West rounds things off. 

Fortnite FNCS streams

As ever, you can watch your favorite players on their own individual streams, but Epic Games have also got their central broadcast set up for proceedings. 

If you prefer using Twitch, you can find Epic’s broadcast on there, but the action will also be available on YouTube. To make things easier, we’ve embedded both streams below so you don’t have to go anywhere. 

With such a stacked up being involved in the solos event, the action from the FNCS should be frantic but also pretty entertaining, no matter who wins.

All you have to do, if you’ve not managed to grab a golden ticket through the open event, is kick back, relax, cheer on your favorite players, and hope that they can claim a victory.

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.

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.
