Epic Games have changed the location of the The Storm Scout Exotic sniper in Fortnite’s February 24 update. Here’s where you can find this powerful weapon on the map now.
The Storm Scout is currently one of the most highly sought after weapons in Fortnite due to the benefits it grants to the user. Aside from having an impressive damage output, it will also show you where the storm will form beforehand.
Epic Games came out with a new update for Season 5 on February 24, which has shuffled the locations of some of the Exotic weapons, including this sniper rifle. It’s now available on a completely different part of the map, and we’ll help you find it.
Mave and Storm Scout sniper rifle location
Initially, you were able to purchase the Storm Scout sniper rifle by giving 1,225 gold bars to Lexa at Hunter’s Haven, Now, you’ll have to make your way a little bit further east in order to acquire this Exotic weapon.

After the update, the sniper rifle came under the possession of an NPC named Mave, who you can find just east of Catty Corner. In order to make things a bit easier, you can take a look at her location on the map below:
Here’s what you need to do in order to get the Storm Scout Exotic sniper rifle in Fortnite:
- After landing in the map, make your way towards the cliffside southeast of Catty Corner
- Go interact with Mave, who will be hanging out by the cliffside.
- Select the Storm Scout sniper option and then purchase it
Once you’re done with this interaction, closing the menu will cause the weapon to automatically show up in your inventory. If you want to get your hands on it then you’ll have to pay 500 Gold Bars to Mave, which isn’t a lot when you consider that it initially costed 1,225.
Still, you should try saving up a bit before you make this purchase. You can earn more Gold Bars for yourself by completing bounties or challenges set by NPCs across Fortnite Island.
That covers everything you need to know about finding the Storm Scout Exotic sniper rifle after the February 24 update. Just follow the instructions we gave you, and you’ll face no problems in doing so.
Keep in mind that Epic Games might shuffle the locations once again for this, along with the other Exotic weapons. If that happens, we’ll be sure to let you know where to look!
With Fortnite Season 6 just around the corner, we’ll keep checking for any more updates by Epic Games to the game’s Exotic Weapons.
