Fortnite Season 5 has another Mythic weapon hiding in the swamp. Here’s how to get a Mythic AK and RPG in Fortnite Season 5.
When Fortnite Season 5 was first released, players assumed that The Mandalorian was the only NPC carrying a Mythic weapon. After all, he was the star of the Battle Pass and had the most distinct location on the map.
After a few days of playing, players discovered that there’s another weapon hiding outside of Slurpy Swamp. Ruckus is wandering around Hydro 16 holding the Mythic AK from Season 3 along with one of the only RPGs in the game.
Naturally, this is a potent combination and a force to be reckoned with. The good news is that Ruckus doesn’t seem to spawn right away. In our experience, he waits about a minute before spawning, giving players a chance to land, loot, and duke it out with one another
Ruckus is just another boss in Fortnite. He doesn’t offer bounties, quests, or rewards. Don’t overthink it; jump in and eliminate him.
You can find Ruckus patrolling anywhere in the Hydro 15 area – the factory just below the Dam to the east of Slurpy Swamp. Finding and killing him is a part of the weekly challenges, as well, so you can walk away with some free XP to go with your RPG and Mythic AK.

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.

Fortnite characters locations Season 8 map
Luckily, the folks at Fortnite.GG has an interactive map of all of the NPCs in Season 8.
Here’s a map of all of the NPCs in Fortnite Season 8. We’ll keep this updated over the course of the season as more appear or are found around the map. Bigfoot, for instance, is missing from this list. We’re not sure whether that’s because he isn’t there or just hasn’t been found yet.
- Disguised man: offers a prop disguise
- Pink Rift: allows you to activate a Rift
- Yellow Cloud: Reveal Future Storm Circle
Compared to seasons past, the number of Fortnite character locations in Season 8 is very minimal. As well, players can no longer upgrade weapons through NPCs. The pool of Mythic weapons has also been minimized.

How to unlock all Fortnite Season 8 Battle Pass Enlightened Skins
Fortnite Season 8 Enlightened Skins have been added to the game, and here is how to unlock all of the Season 8 Rune super styles.
The conditions players will have to meet in order to unlock the Battle Pass Super Styles have been revealed. Also known as Enlightened Skins, the Fortnite Season 8 Super Styles are unlocked the same way they were in Season 7.
Enlightened/Super Skins are prestigious style variants for the skins that are unlocked through the Battle Pass. These types of skins were implemented in Chapter 1 Season 4, and are a testament to skill.
In order for players to unlock these skins, they have to reach a high Battle Pass level for the season. Last season, players had to reach level 200 before the end of the season to unlock all nine variants.
This is the equivalent of completing a second Battle Pass plus 25 levels. Some players think the Super Skins have lackluster designs, while others grind for them to show their dominance.
Unlock Season 8 Enlightened Skins
Since this season of Fortnite is once again using Battle Stars, unlocking the Season 8 Enlightened Skins/Super Styles is also a bit different. Battle Stars are earned when a player gains a level, and they are used to purchase Battle Pass items. Players will also have to use Battle Stars to purchase this season’s Super Styles.
There will be at least four items to purchase from each tier. Tier 1 Super Styles will cost 15 Battle Stars each, Tier 2 will cost 20, and Tier 3 will cost 25. Players can start unlocking these skins at season level 140. This also means players will only have to reach level 200 this season to unlock every season exclusive.
Once again, the Fortnite Season 8 Enlightened Skins aren’t just fully chrome reskins. They aren’t as stunning as Season 7’s chromatic variants, but they are still better than Seasons 5 and 6.
They skins are Blue (Tier 1), Purple (Tier 2), and Gold (Tier 3). The skins are meant to resemble the different colors of the cubes that are scattered around the map.

Players won’t have to grind as hard as they have in the past to earn these items. And since the skins can be purchased with Battle Stars, players only have to reach level 200 to get the Season 8 Super Skins. We will keep this article updated as more information is revealed, so stay tuned.
