During The Game Awards 2020, Epic Games revealed that Fortnite is teaming up with The Walking Dead to release Daryl and Michonne skins.

On December 10, Geoff Keighley hosted his annual Game Awards show where creators and players come together to celebrate the best titles of the year and get a glimpse at what’s to come.

During the event, hit battle royale Fortnite was given a segment and blew fans away with some “epic” announcements โ€“ like Master Chief from Halo. That wasn’t the only surprise, though, as The Walking Dead skins were also revealed in the form of Daryl and Michonne. Here’s everything we know so far.

The Walking Dead x Fortnite crossover skins

The zombie-killing duo are headed to Fortnite.

The announcement dropped in the form of a cinematic trailer which showed a horde of zombies rushing towards the screen before panning out to reveal two individuals with a rifle and katana โ€“ Michonne and Daryl, standout characters in The Walking Dead comics and TV shows.

Jonesy then appeared, opening a rift and transporting the Walking Dead characters into the ever-changing world of Fortnite to battle it out for a Victory Royale.

The skins release on December 16 on all platforms, though it’s not currently known how you’ll be able to unlock them. It’ll presumably be through the Item Shop, but nothing has been confirmed at the time of writing. We’ll update you when we know more.

That wasn’t the only crossover announced at The Game Awards โ€“ as we mentioned above, Halo was also revealed, with a Master Chief skin dropping right then and there for players on all platforms, and an exclusive matte black variant for Xbox.

The Walking Dead might not have been a collaboration anyone saw coming, but it’ll no doubt be fun for fans to tear up the map as what are undoubtedly two absolutely awesome characters hardened by the apocalypse.

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.
