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.

The National Football League and Epic Games have announced a continuation in their partnership, which is allowing for a slew of new NFL-themed skins in the mega-popular battle royale game Fortnite within the next few days. 

NFL skins in Fortnite are nothing new. Back in 2018, a slew of skins based on NFL football teams made their way into the game, much to the excitement of fans of the sport.

Unfortunately, while the skins returned to the Item Shop in early 2020 due to the Super Bowl, they never really gained notoriety, with the only exception being when Epic gave players a free refund for the skins after the Washington Football Team’s name and logo was changed a few months back.

Despite this, it seems like more NFL skins are on the way.

The two mega companies have recently announced that they will be “extending” their partnership to allow for more NFL skins in Fortnite. According to a joint press release from both companies, the new skins will be completely redesigned from their previous looks and will have a “more athletic” and “aerodynamic look and feel”.

This new selection of skins will be called the Gridiron Gang Outfits and will represent all 32 NFL teams in both the AFC and NFC.

In addition to the newly redesigned skins, fans will also have a chance to get their hands on a brand new Back Bling for their NFL skins, named Logo-a-go-go. While the name’s a bit of a tongue-twister, these new items are basically just the logo for the team you want to represent stuck onto the back of your character.

Release Date and Time

According to the company, the skins and back bling will be added to the Fortnite Item Shop in just a few days, on November 25. Like every other item added to the in-game store, it should appear when the store gets updated that day.

Currently, the big unknown is how long the items will be in the shop for. Surely, they’ll only be available for a limited time, however, the exact time frame is unclear. It could be in their for as short as a day or maybe a bit longer.

Chances are though that Epic will give fans a few days to get their hands on it before pulling it from the store. Regardless, NFL fans should be ready to grab these items if they want it because with Fortnite, you never know when they’ll come back.
