How to get a ‘Double Pump’ in Fortnite Season 6

The Dub, one of the returning Exotics in Fortnite Season 6, has an interesting feature that removes the shotgun-switch delay.

A feature that was originally found in Fortnite Season 5 has returned in Season 6, allowing players to use the old “Double Pump” strategy from back in the day.

The shotgun meta is always a topic of conversation in Fortnite, and Season 6 is no different. Players have been complaining about the effectiveness of the Primal Shotgun, while strongly disliking the Makeshift variant.

Fortnite Season 6 brought back a few Exotic weapons from Season 5, along with a heap of new ones for players to try. One of the returning weapons is The Dub – a Double Barrel shotgun that pushes both the shooter and the opponent back when fired.

The Pump has also returned to Season 6, giving players the ability to use The Dub and The Pump as a double-pump replacement.

For those who don’t know, the Dub Shotgun is unique in one special way. There’s no cooldown timer attached to The Dub, which allows players to use a Pump and Dub together without facing a delay.

Here’s a video from YouTuber, OrangeGuy, showing how this works. He made the video back in Season 5, but the information still applies. In fact, the “Double Pump” strategy lives up the name now more than it did last season.

Initially, when we reported on this feature, we weren’t sure whether or not it was intended. After over a season of The Dub shotgun, it’s safe to say that Epic know that the cooldown works this way, and are okay with it.

If you want to try the Season 6 Dub shotgun for yourself, you can find it from Burnout south of Steamy Stacks

A new event is taking place in Fortnite, and Epic Games is giving away cosmetics including a free Rift Tour Umbrella.

Epic Games has been teasing an upcoming event called the Rift Tour. This event boasts an in-game musical experience like never before. Taking place from August 6th through the 8th, players will journey into magical new realities alongside a record-breaking superstar.

Not only will players get to enjoy a musical performance from a mysterious artist, but they also have the opportunity to earn a free Rift Tour umbrella as well as other cosmetics. Right now, players can unlock three free cosmetic items, and there are still more to come!

Getting the Free Rift Tour Umbrella

Unlocking the free Rift Tour umbrella is actually pretty simple as long as players are free to hop into Fortnite sometime during August 6-8. The only way to obtain the free umbrella is by attending the actual Rift Tour event. This is similar to the exclusive gliders given to those who attended the Travis Scott and Star Wars events.

There are five different time slots available throughout the weekend. Each time slot is only available for specific servers. These time slots and servers are as follows:

  • 6 PM EST on August 6th (Americas)
  • 2 PM EST on August 7th (Global)
  • 12 AM EST on August 8th (Asia – Oceania)
  • 10 AM EST on August 8th (Europe – Middle East)
  • 6 PM EST on August 8th (Americas)

More free Rift Tour cosmetics

However, players don’t have to wait until then to claim their other free rewards. Until the 8th, players can complete three challenges to unlock three free cosmetics. The challenges are available in regular Fortnite matches and are as follows:

  • Interact with the Rift Tour posters x 1 – Rift-sterpiece Spray
  • Use an Alien Hologram Pad on top of the Party UFO – Cloudy Kitty Emoticon
  • Save the Date in the Rift Tour tab and play a match – Cosmic Cuddles Loading Screen

Players who are into collecting rare cosmetics will want to make sure to complete these tasks. Once the event ends, these cosmetics will be gone forever. And make sure to save the date for the Rift Tour so you don’t miss out on a magical musical experience.

Here are all of the Fortnite Alien Artifact locations from week 1 to week 8. Collect them all to customize the new Kymera skin.

The Kymera skin is a highly customizable outfit in the Fortnite Season 7 Battle Pass, but it requires Alien Artifacts to unlock its parts. Here are the Fortnite Alien Artifact locations including the Week 8 Alien Artifacts.

Similar to the Season 3 Brella glider and Season 2 Maya skin, the Season 7 Battle Pass has its own custom skin. Kymera is the first skin players receive after purchasing the Battle Pass, and he’s also seen as the main enemy in the Season 7 story trailer.

However, Kymera’s parts aren’t unlocked by completing different challenges or reaching certain levels. Instead, Season 7 introduces a new form of currency called Alien Artifacts. These are used to purchase different style options from the Kymera Battle Pass menu. This guide will show players all of the Fortnite Alien Artifact locations.

There are two way to obtain Alien Artifacts: Collecting the weekly canisters and opening Cosmic Chests. Cosmic Chests randomly appear in Squads Mode and drop a random number of Alien Artifacts when opened. If you’re interested in hunting these chests, check out our guide on where to find Cosmic Chests.

Below is a map that shows the locations of the current Alien Artifacts. More Artifacts will be added each week at different locations around the map. Each of the Fortnite Alien Artifact locations gives players four artifacts. A gold rarity has yet to be added that will give players seven.

The Alien Artifacts are out in the open and make a faint noise when nearby. This makes them easy to locate and collect. To collect them, players simply need to walk into them. They can even drive through them using a boat, car, or UFO. The artifacts will be given to players when they return to the lobby after the match.

There aren’t any other uses for Alien Artifacts outside of purchasing Kymera parts. Players are encouraged to spend their Alien Artifacts as they get them because the best alien parts are locked behind purchasing all of the parts from that category. While you may only be able to get a limited number of Alien Artifacts easily, Cosmic Chest hunting allows players to obtain an unlimited amount

As a part of this week’s Fortnite Legendary Challenges, players must interact with an IO Operative’s computer.

Another week of Legendary Challenges is here, and this time, Dr. Slone has players completing some very secretive quests. Players don’t have to post missing person signs or set up cow decoys. Instead, they are weeding out a mole inside of The IO.

There is a suspected mole inside of The IO that is leaking info to someone. Dr. Slone needs you to collect access cards, plant wiretaps, and talk with various NPC to find the imposter. Here is how and where players can interact with an IO Operative’s computer.

Another fairly simple quest will have players visiting even more IO outposts. Where IO Guards are located, there are surely some computers nearby that players can interact with. However, players only have to interact with one IO Operative’s computer to get the job done.

There are eight different locations around the map that have these computers. The map below shows every location which includes all of the satellite stations and Corny Complex. These locations are patrolled by IO Guards, so players will want to be careful not to draw attention to themselves.

The computers are pretty easy to find since there are multiple at each location. As well, the computer players can interact with are glowing blue. All a player needs to do is approach the IO Operative’s computer and press the action button.

Once done, the challenge will be complete and players will earn a whopping 30k experience points. If a player completes all six weekly challenges, they will earn 165k experience points total. These challenges aren’t very hard making them a quick way to rack up a ton of XP.
