Where to buy Fortnite’s Exotic Boom Sniper Rifle in Season 5

The Boom Exotic Sniper Rifle is a rare but mighty weapon. You can get it for yourself by following a few steps.

Exotic Weapons are the newest additions to Fortnite Season 5, and The Boom Exotic Sniper Rifle is a powerful tool to have in combat. Here’s how you can get your hands on this rare gun.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 has a plethora of amazing new content, including cosmetics, skins, and quests. It has also introduced a new weapon type known as ‘Exotic’ weapons. These are rare guns that are significantly more unique than Legendary ones.

Five Exotic weapons have been added to Fortnite, and one of them is the Boom Sniper Rifle, which shares its model with the Heavy Sniper Rifle. As with all of the Exotic guns, you’ll have little luck in finding it as random loot within the Battle Royale.

We’ve gone over what to do to unlock the Shadow Tracker pistol, and now here’s how you can get The Boom Exotic Sniper Rifle in Fortnite Season 2, Chapter 5.

How to get the Boom Exotic Sniper Rifle

Since Exotic weapons are rare, your best chance of getting them is by spending Gold on certain NPCs. You can purchase The Boom Sniper Rifle from a character named Splode, who can be found at the Unremarkable Shack POI.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Make your way North until you reach the Craggy Cliffs.
  2. Head over to the small island to the left, just between the cliffs and Stealthy Stronghold.
  3. Approach the Unremarkable Shack landmark on the Western side of the island.
  4. Talk with the NPC Splode and purchase the weapon from him.

You can spot this landmark on the map below.

This weapon doesn’t come cheap, so if you want to purchase it from Splode, you’ll need to have 1,225 Gold at hand. This price is steep, but it’s understandable due to the rarity of The Boom Exotic.

Using this weapon is a lot like firing the Heavy Sniper Rifle, but the biggest difference is that it will fire a clinger with its projectile. Your targets will take 10 contact damage from the clinger, or 25 if you successfully perform a headshot. Then the projectile will explode and deal 60 bonus damage to them.

The Boom Exotic comes with 5 rounds in its magazine, which is 4 more than the Heavy Sniper Rifle. This makes the weapon ideal for dealing splash damage with the clingers to foes around corners. If you find yourself overwhelmed by multiple enemies, then this gun will come in handy.

That covers everything you need to know about getting the Boom Sniper Rifle. It’s expensive now, but it will become more prevalent later in the season as players earn more Gold Bars. Although Mythic weapons are still more powerful, Exotic guns are still worth pursuing.

Where to find Riot in Fortnite Season 7

There are various NPCs scattered across Fortnite Island, and each one serves a different purpose, such as selling weapons or protecting the player. Riot will fire at you on sight, so be ready for a battle.

You can find this NPC on the west side of the Yellow Steel Bridge between Misty Meadow and Catty Corner. Make sure you collect some solid weapons and gear before going to battle against Fortnite Riot, as he will be hostile.

We’ve marked this location on the map below.

Simply take cover as much as possible by building structures or using your surroundings. Once he stops firing at you, you can take your opportunity to shoot him down. Luckily, he isn’t too difficult to bring down.

We recommend keeping a few shield potions on you just in case since the aim of Fortnite Riot is deadly. Once he’s down, you’ll be able to loot him for gear, and the game will reward you with 30,000 XP, so it is definitely worth it to take the time to find Fortnite Riot and defeat the NPC.

After the Alien invasion arrived, many changes came to Fortnite Island. Holly Hedges has been changed to Holly Hatchery, and it’s the area that you’ll need to visit for this Legendary Quest.

This location has changed into a farm for Alien Eggs in Season 7, and there’s a low gravity biome in the area. Head over there, and look for little green orbs that are sprouting out of the ground.

You can also check the southwest portion of the purple crater in the center of the map.

You only need to mark one Alien Egg so make your way to either one of these locations. After you come across one, you can mark it by pinging its location on your map. So use the mouse scroll, or the left D-pad button.

Once that’s done, you’ll earn a total of 30,000 XP. You can also complete the rest of the weekly challenges to earn some extra XP and Battle Stars.

Fortnite Season 7 NPC Locations

Fortnite Season 7 features various wacky NPCs you can visit around the island, so here are all of the Fortnite NPC locations for whenever you might need to find these individuals.

Along with the beginning of Fortnite Season 7 came map changes and the introduction of some new NPCs such as Guggimon and Rick and Morty’s Rick Sanchez. By spending Gold Bars, these NPCs can be hired to fight for you, duel you for some great loot, or turn you into a prop.

More NPCs are expected to be added over the course of the season, so we’ll update this article with any new character and their location.
