The newest weapon to come to Fortnite is a gravity-defying portable UFO. Here’s where to find the Grab-itron in Fortnite.

When Fortnite Season 7 started, players were having a blast with the UFO’s many tools and weaponry. The Saucer Cannon would rain down plasma balls to decimate opponents. And the tractor beam could pick up players and throw them long distances.

The tractor beam could also be used to pick up large objects like boulders, cars, and semi-trucks. These objects could be hurled at enemy players, but hitting them required accuracy and timing that most players might not have. Now, with the Grab-itron in Fortnite, hitting opponents with cars is a whole lot easier.

This piece of IO Tech is extremely powerful if players can get their hands on it. Luckily, it’s not too hard to find. The Grab-itron can be found in chests all around the map. But, being an Alien weapon, it’s easier found inside chests on the Mothership or on Abductors.

The Grab-itron has a multitude of uses starting with the obvious. You can now pick up heavy objects and fling them at opponents with better accuracy. However, you can also use the heavy objects as a shield to protect you from incoming fire.

This weapon is also a great counter to rockets and explosives. Incoming rockets can be grabbed out of the air and thrown back at players. The same goes for grenades, firefly jars, and recon scanners. Don’t want your builds getting destroyed? Just throw the hazards back where they came from.

Fortnite’s coveted Mythic and Exotic weapons have returned in Season 8. Here is where players can find the Mythic and Exotic weapons in Fortnite.

Once again, Fortnite Season 8 starts with a small pool of NPCs. Season 7 started with a small number of NPCs that gradually grew over the season. While there may not be a ton of NPCs like in Seasons 5 and 6, there’s still a few Fortnite Mythic and Exotic weapons.

NPCs sell Exotic weapons in Fortnite. They are the most expensive items that NPCs have, and players will have to pay a large number of gold bars to get them. However, they also have special abilities that make them worth the cost.

Fortnite Mythic weapons are held by hostile NPCs and can only be obtained if that NPC is defeated. Here are where all of the Fortnite Mythic and Exotic weapons locations.

Fortnite Season 8 Exotic & Mythic weapon locations

It’s no surprise that Exotic and Mythic weapons have returned for the seventh season in a row. While these are nice tools to have, they won’t guarantee anyone a Victory Royale. But for those who want to switch up their arsenal, here is where every Mythic and Exotic weapon is located.

  • Dragon’s Breath Sniper Rifle: sold by Pitstop for 400 gold at Boney Burbs
  • Shadow Tracker Pistol: sold by Dusk for 400 gold south of Primal Pond

Upcoming Mythic Weapons

Players may not have access to very many Exotic or Mythic weapons at the moment, but Fortnite will add more in the future. The Fortnite Season 8 trailer showed a couple of these weapons. As well, dataminers were able to find some in the game’s files.

More sideways weapons are planned to be released, and they will likely have the same upgrade capabilities as the minigun and rifle. The upcoming sideways weapons include a sword and a shotgun.

Characters returned to Fortnite in Season 8. Here are all of the Fortnite character locations in the new season, along with which ones offer upgrades, prop disguises, bounties, and more.

Fortnite first introduced NPCs in Season 5, with the large-scale overhaul of the economy. NPCs are back once again in Season 8, and they are just as useful as they have been in previous seasons.

However, with the return of the Punch Card system, NPCs are more important than ever. Players will need to find and talk with NPCs to start questlines. These quests are the main way players will earn XP throughout the season.

Without further ado, here are all of the Fortnite Character locations in Season 8.

  • Pink Rift: allows you to activate a Rift

Fastest ways to level up in Fortnite Season 8 and earn more XP

Reaching level 100 in Fortnite can be hard, but not anymore. Here’s the fastest way to level up and earn XP in Fortnite Season 8.

Published

fortnite fastest way to level up earn xp

Fortnite Season 8 has switched up the way players earn XP, and it makes leveling up the traditional way pretty hard. Here is how players can level up fast and reach tier 100 in no time.

At the start of each season, your player level in Fortnite is set back to 0. Players strive to climb back up to level 100 as quickly as possible. However, it can be quite a grind to earn all that XP.

Level 100 is even more enticing for Battle Pass owners. Reaching level 100 and beyond rewards BP owners with tons of cool cosmetics. And there is a pretty fast way to level up in Fortnite Season 8.

At the start of Season 8, players would spend tens of hours in the Impostors mode to gain loads of XP. Now that Impostors mode has been nerfed, there are a few other ways to earn XP fast.

Leveling up in Fortnite Impostor Mode

Fortnite’s Impostor mode was the easiest and fastest way to level up in Season 8. However, the amount of XP players can earn from the mode has been cut in half. But that doesn’t mean players can’t still use the mode to level up.

You can play Impostor mode in public lobbies to earn XP, but it’s much easier to level up in Private lobbies. You will need at least four people in your party to play a private match. Here are the amounts of XP you will earn for performing actions:

Agents & Impostor XP

  • Complete tasks as Agent – 1,000 XP
  • Play a match – 500 XP
  • Spend time playing match – 350 XP
  • Complete a match – 1,000 XP
  • Win a match – 1,000 XP
  • Perform a Sabotage as Impostor – 500 XP
  • Eliminate Agents as Impostor – 500 XP

Some of the above tasks are multiplied by the number of times they are completed. For example, every task or player killed will reward players with the amount of XP listed. With a group of four, the Impostor can continuously spam the Peely Party sabotage while Agents complete tasks.

Completing Weekly/Daily Punchcards

There is also the more traditional route of earning XP via completing weekly challenges. However, Fortnite Season 8 has completely changed how weekly challenges work. Instead of being given tasks at the start of the week, players have to interact with the NPCs on the Island.

There are currently 17 characters on the island, and each one will give the player five different quests. Players can earn 80,000 XP from each character, and they can earn 1.36 million XP a week by completing all 17 quest punchcards.

There are also daily and weekly punchcards that offer minimal XP. By completing the character punchcards, the weekly and daily ones will be completed as well.

It’s also important to note that Epic Games is aware that XP gain is not as fast as it should be. As such, Fortnite’s XP and leveling system will see some adjustments on September 28.

Until then, you should keep grinding Impostors mode and make sure all of your weekly punchcards are filled out. For more Fortnite, check out how to get the overpowered Mythic Sideways Weapons, and stay tuned for more news and guides.
