Popular Fortnite content creator SypherPK has revealed the “rarest” weapon in Season 4 and what you need to do to get your hand on it. 

With the start of Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4, the battle royale was engulfed in the theme of Marvel and it’s Nexus War between Thor and Galactus. 

On top of many of Marvel’s most popular heroes descending on the battle royale island, Epic Games shook things up with the return of some classic weapons as well as some new points of interest for fans to explore. 

While many players have already got to grips with what the new season has on offer, there could be a shakeup if they follow SypherPK’s recommendation of trying to grab the “rarest” weapon in the game.

How to get Fortnite Season 4’s purple LMG

That weapon you ask? Well, it’s the epic variant of the Light Machine Gun, or LMG. The powerful weapon was initially introduced back in the v3.5.2 patch and has been in and out of Fortnite since. 

In Season 4, the only way to get it is at Doom’s Domain. Now, unlike Dr. Doom’s Arcane Gauntlets and Mystical Bomb, you don’t have to defeat the Fantastic 4 villain. 

Instead, you just have to take down the guards that are patrolling outside of the vault that sits under the soccer pitch at the POI. Take them down and at least one of them should drop the LMG. There is also an epic Tac SMG that could drop too. 

  1. Land at Doom’s Domain 
  2. Head to the vault under the half-opened soccer pitch
  3. Defeat the guards
  4. Pick up the LMG and enjoy!

Given that Doom’s Domain is a popular spot anyway, you may face some stiff competition for the LMG. Even if you don’t, and enemies let you get by them, you do also have to worry about the mythical superpowers raining down from above. 

The weapon is also, apparently, found inside Rare Chests but you can guarantee one at Doom’s Domain. Just be careful no one beats you to it.


How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 10 challenges

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

Where to find Upstate New York in Fortnite Season 4

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 10 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
