Epic Games have announced the release date and time for v6.0 update in Fortnite Battle Royale, which will mark the start of the highly anticipated Season 6.

The update is set to go live on September 27 at 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 8 AM BST and will require downtime, which means that matchmaking will likely be disabled 20-25 minutes prior to launch. 

The announcement for the v6.0 update was made via a post on the official Fortnite twitter page on September 26.

The tweet also makes sure to remind players that they will still be able to upgrade progressive Outfits from Season 5, such as the Drift and Ragnarok skins, after Season 6 launches, as long as they are unlocked in the Battle Pass before the current season ends. 

However, players will not be able to complete any of the weekly challenges from Season 5 once the update goes live, which means they have until the downtime to complete any outstanding challenges

Players will have to wait until the Patch Notes are released once the update goes live to see what additions, changes, and adjustments are being implemented into Fortnite. 

There are high expectations among the fan-base for what Epic have in store for Season 6. Although the theme of the season has not been revealed, teaser images have been released in the past few days on social media.

There are several things coming in the v6.0 update that have already been confirmed by Epic in the past days and weeks. 

A major revamp to audio, especially concerning footsteps and Glider tracking, will be implemented right at the beginning of Season 6.

Furthermore, the ability to customize bindings for controllers is also being reportedly added via this update.

The v6.0 update will also likely contain a slew of various cosmetic items, all of which will likely be found in game files and leaked by data miners shortly after the update goes live.

Make sure to monitor the Dexerto Twitter account, as well as our website, as we will relay all information pertaining to the update and Season 6 as soon as it’s announced by Epic.

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.
