Mave and Storm Scout in Fortnite

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.

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:

  1. After landing in the map, make your way towards the cliffside southeast of Catty Corner
  2. Go interact with Mave, who will be hanging out by the cliffside.
  3. 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.

Using the best settings is vital to scoring a Fortnite Victory Royale, but the “Cloud Download Failure” error has been known to reset settings or even block players from logging in. We have a few solutions to help you get around the error.

We would only recommend uninstalling and reinstalling Fortnite if you have exhausted all of the other options, but sometimes it’s the only way to get rid of the “Cloud Download Failure” error.

This could take several hours depending on your internet connection, so you should only do it if you don’t mind waiting for the game to completely reinstall.

Fortnite Spider-Man and The Foundation XP

Fortnite Chapter 3’s Season 1 Battle Pass offers 100 Tiers of exciting cosmetics, but getting through every level takes time and dedication. Luckily, we’ve got some top tips to help you level up fast in Fortnite Chapter 3.

Fortnite Chapter 3’s first Battle Pass features the highly-anticipated Spider-Man skins as well as some unique offerings such as Shanta and the upcoming The Foundation Dwayne Jonhson skin

You’ll need to hit at least level 100 if you want to unlock all of these skins and cosmetics, but it’ll take more than a few games to complete the Battle Pass. If you’re worried you won’t finish ahead of Season 2 or just want the skins as soon as possible, we have the fastest ways to level up in Fortnite Chapter 3. 

Complete Fortnite Weekly & Daily Quests

Fortnite offers players Weekly and Daily Challenges to complete that offer a ton of Bonus XP. 

The Weekly Quests will task you with completing objectives such as finding telescope parts and knocking down Timber Pines, and you’ll earn 25,000 XP for each.

The Daily Quests are much simpler, but not to be sniffed at. There will be three a day, and you’ll earn over 15,000 XP for each. This means that you can earn around 45,000 XP a day just for completing simple objectives such as opening chests in different locations. 

Check off Fortnite Milestones 

Milestones in Fortnite Chapter 3

Milestones have returned in Fortnite Chapter 3, allowing players to earn XP for completing simple actions such as opening Chests and Ammo Boxes, catching fish, and feeding Klomberries to Klombos.

Most of these objectives will be completed naturally as you play, but check out the Quests Page to see all of your Milestones. 

You’ll earn 8,000 XP for each completed Milestone, and another 20,000 XP for each ten. If you’re looking to level up quickly, make sure you’re checking off these Milestones as you play. 

Play Fortnite Creative Mode

Jumping into Fortnite’s Creative Mode is always a great way to earn XP fast, as you’ll earn a huge chunk of XP every 15 minutes – no matter what you’re doing. 

Players will earn 12,000 XP for every 15 minutes they spend in Creative Playlists, and it can be claimed up to five times. While you could earn XP by sitting idle, it’s worth looking out for the XP marker beside a Creative experience, as this means you’ll also earn XP as you play. 

Score Victory Royale’s in Fortnite

Fortnite Victory Royale

One of the best ways to level up fast in Fortnite is simply winning matches. This won’t be easy for everyone, but consistently playing well will allow you to fly through the levels. 

You’ll earn XP for eliminating players and surviving each Storm Circle, and then if you can pull off a Victory Royale, you’ll get a bonus 300 XP.

Buy Fortnite Battle Pass Tiers after level 7

Fortnite Chapter 3 Battle Pass

If you’re someone who likes to buy Fortnite’s Tier Skip Battle Pass, you should hold off until you’ve hit level 7 in the free Battle Pass. 

The amount of XP required to level up rises significantly after level 7, so purchasing the 25 Tier Skips after level 7 will give you the best value for money, allowing you to level up faster.
