Here’s a complete guide to help you find the new location for the Exotic ‘The Dub’ shotgun in Season 6 of Epic Games’ Fortnite.

The raft of changes in Season 6 has included the usual array of POI alterations and lots of rejigging to make players rethink what they know about Epic’s Fortnite. One such change is the default home of the popular The Dub shotgun.

This Exotic, double-barreled beauty can cause some serious damage during a game and there’s a notion that Season 6 removed the weapon altogether. This is thankfully not true, and its location has merely been changed. We’re going to tell you where it is, and how many Gold bars it will cost to own The Dub once more.

Where is The Dub in Fortnite Season 6?

Given the rarity and Exotic nature of The Dub, this isn’t the kind of weapon that you’ll be able to go around and secure in a random loot chest.

In order to get your hands on it, you’ll need to seek out a specific NPC that you can exchange Gold bars with to secure your very own The Dub shotgun. They can be can found at the racecourse to the south-west of Steamy Stacks.

Here is the location of The Dub in Fortnite Season 6.

How to get The Dub in Fortnite Season 6

Burnout is the name of the NPC in Epic’s Fortnite who will hold the key to getting a hold of The Dub.

Here is what you’ll need to do to acquire The Dub in Fortnite Season 6:

  1. Head for a safe point in Steamy Stacks where no one else has landed
  2. Make your way to a road littered with racecourse decorations e.g orange cones
  3. Find Burnout (he’ll be wearing a protective racing suit)
  4. Start a conversation with him
  5. Select ‘The Dub’ to purchase
  6. Complete the transaction
  7. Go and cause chaos with it!

How many Gold Bars needed for The Dub in Fortnite Season 6?

As with anything desirable and powerful, it comes with a price. The Dub is no different as it will come with a mandatory price tag before Burnout will just hand it over to you.

Sadly, it’s a bit hefty, so you need to make sure you’ve managed to stock up on Gold Bars, a whopping 600 Gold Bars to be exact. Once you’ve managed to do this, then The Dub will be yours to wield.

If you’ve already tried out The Dub and want to flaunt something completely different, then make sure you check out our guides on how to get the Shadow Tracker Exotic pistol or the Chug Cannon Exotic weapon.

Will Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 have a live event finale?

According to data miners following the v20.40 update, Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 will end with a live event.

Data miners have discovered strings that appear to prove there will be a season-ending live event finale. Leaker FNBRintel has discovered a ton of strings for the event, which include an in-game countdown and a way for streamers to use DMCA-free music during it.

Another leaker, FortTory, has also said that there will be a pre-event lobby where “we can expect some animations and sequences” before the main event. However, they won’t say anything more for now.

New skins for Paradigm and Jonesy have also been found in the patch notes, and Shiina believes they’ll have a part to play in the live event finale. They also leaked that there will be “multiple cosmetics available for the event.”

When is Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2’s live event finale?

Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2’s live event should go live on the last day of the season, which is set to be on June 3.

Once the event concludes, there’s set to be “an extended downtime,” with a “waiting screen similar to previous events.” There’s no way of knowing how long the downtime will last at the time of writing, though.

Doomsday Device arrives at Loot Lake with Fortnite 20.40 update

Fortnite data miners have discovered that Fortnite’s 20.40 update has brought the Doomsday Device to Loot Lake, and it appears to tie in with a live event that we’ll see in Chapter 3 Season 3.

The Doomsday Device is a huge tower at Loot Lake’s shore, surrounded by small buildings that’ll be perfect for looting. Popular leaker HYPEX said: “The Doomsday Device is set to have some periodic pulses that either enable glider redeploy, low gravity or extra speed,” but they explained that these features might not make it into the update.

Sideways Showdown Week in Fortnite 20.40 update

Wild Weeks are back for the last few weeks of Fortnite Season 2, with the Sideways weapons returning as part of 20.40’s Sideways Showdown.

The Sideways Rifle and Sideways Minigun have returned and can be found as floor loot and in chests. With no Cube Monster Parts to upgrade them, you can now just take them to an Upgrade Bench.

There’s a new set of challenges and you’ll have until May 24 to complete them before the next Wild Week.

Live event found in Fortnite 20.40 update

With Season 2 set to wrap up on June 3, we’d expect the event to arrive around this date, with Season 3 kicking off a couple of days after.
