Samsung leaks have revealed another exclusive skin coming to Fortnite, this time known as the ‘Galaxy Scout’ skin. Take a first look at it here, as well as information on how you can redeem it when it drops in-game. 

Fortnite fans have grown accustomed to ambitious partnerships that lead to awesome in-game skins and events. From Star Wars to Marvel, Epic Games have re-written the book on in-game events and crossovers.

One crossover fans may have forgotten about is the partnership with tech giants Samsung, which led to the Galaxy Skin being added back in Chapter One. Now, though, it seems that another Samsung themed skin is coming to Fortnite.

Samsung Galaxy Scout Skin leaked for Fortnite

On July 17, data-miner iFireMonkey, known for regular and accurate Fortnite leaks, shared a leak from the Samsung Health app.

“Due to a mishap on the Samsung Health application,” they said, “twitter use @fu noticed that the Fortnite Galaxy Scout promotion was already on the app earlier than expected. Due to this, we now have a nice image that shows us what this skin will look like”.

It retains the same stratospheric themes as the original Galaxy skin, but appears to be a female twist on the skin.

How to get Samsung Galaxy Scout Skin in Fortnite

The first Galaxy skin was only attainable through the purchase of a Samsung mobile phone, and this one will only be unlockable for players participating in the upcoming Fortnite Galaxy Cup.

Registrations for the Galaxy Cup will open on Monday July 20 but, unfortunately, it’s not that simple. The event is expected to be mobile-only, and players have to own the original Galaxy skin. Hence, you have to have bought a Samsung Galaxy mobile in order to be eligible for this new skin.

However, the tournament requirements are yet to be clarified, so some players may receive surprise invitations. Keep your eyes peeled, gamers.

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.
Epic Games
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.
