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)

Epic GamesThe Gold Scar is one of the most iconic Fortnite weapons.

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. 

Supply Llamas

Twin/YouTubeThe llama grants players 350 of each Wood, Stone and Metal.

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)

The new gold burst has become a fan-favorite already.

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.

Mythic Goldfish

Epic GamesMany were unsure if the Mythic Goldfish even existed at first, but it’s become a huge item that players are desperate to find.

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

Epic GamesThe gold pump is another adored weapon in Fortnite.

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.

Fortnite Chapter 2 has brought in a whole host of new in-game items and cosmetics.

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.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
