Fortnite Chapter 2 launched on Tuesday, October 15, and although Epic Games still haven’t released patch notes yet, players are already clamoring to try out all of the rarest items in the game.
While players might have always sought out the Legendary Assault Rifle (Scar) or – before it was vaulted for Chapter 2 – the Heavy Sniper, the title's latest major update introduced some fresh content for fans to explore. Weapons have been unvaulted and the loot pool has changed pretty drastically.
Although there aren’t any specific statistics in place, or resources to find out from, we’ve been playing Fortnite manically to discover which items are the rarest to find in Chapter 2. So, let's take a look through our list.
Legendary Assault Rifle (Gold SCAR)
As always, the gold Scar is one of the most elusive weapons in the game, with incredible accuracy and damage, this can be an absolutely devastating weapon in the right hands.
Epic Games obviously decided this weapon was far too important to remove from the game. After all, it’s almost become a staple of the Fortnite experience, but that doesn't mean that it's easy to find. In fact, it's anything but.
Llamas aren’t a new addition to the game, having first been introduced during Season 3, when three llamas full of materials and loot would be placed randomly on the map for players to search, and finding them was like hitting a gold mine.
Even with the increase from three llamas per game to five, finding a llama is still incredibly rare and could be a complete game-changer. The odd game that you find one will mean a lot of time saved by not farming as much – meaning you can hunt eliminations much easier.
Legendary Burst Assault Rifle (Gold AUG)
Returning in the Epic and Legendary varieties is the burst assault rifle, which has been vaulted and unvaulted several times now. Before writing this guide, we had to check this was even in the game because we hadn’t found one yet. Although it was previously in the game, the weapon has changed from being modeled off a FAMAS, to now looking more like an AUG.
Coming back with Epic and Legendary variants has been a way to really spice up the meta where assault rifles are concerned, being a genuine contender against the gold Scar depending on the situation, how far into the game you are and dependent on your personal play style.
The Mythic Goldfish is the rarest item ever added to Fortnite Battle Royale, without a shadow of a doubt. So much so that for the first few days of Chapter 2 being out, most believed it to be just that... A myth.
However, as time went on, they started gradually appearing here and there, categoric proof that it does exist. Not only does it exist, but it can also kill enemies in one hit. Throwing it at an enemy can deal 200 damage to them - all health and shields gone – but you have to be deadly accurate to make use of it.
Legendary Pump Shotgun
The release of Fortnite Chapter 2 has seen much more balance between the tactical and pump shotguns; whereas before the tac was more of a novelty item, with not many choosing it over the pump, the opposite now seems to be in effect.
While most are opting for the tactical shotgun, the return of the legendary pump has become the most desired shotgun in the game simply for its raw power. One good hit could be an all-important elimination.
So there are some of the rarest items in Fortnite Chapter 2 – finding one of these could be the difference between a quick death or a Victory Royale, so keep your eyes peeled.
The revival of Fortnite and the rare items in the game has been a big talking point within the community, with even the likes of shroud and Dr Disrespect disagreeing over whether it's the best battle royale game.
