Fortnite Burst Quad Launcher

One of the new Exotic weapons added to Fortnite Season 5 in the v15.30 patch was the Burst Quad Launcher. Here’s how to find it.

The Quad Launcher was one of the most polarizing weapons ever to come to Fortnite. The ability to pepper players and structures with four rockets at a time seemed far too powerful, but some players loved it.

The Quad Launcher is back in the game following the v15.30 patch. Now, though, it’s an Exotic weapon called the Burst Quad Launcher. Here’s how you can try it out.

Strangely, the Burst Quad Launcher is sold by Fishstick, of all people. You can find him in the main building in Craggy Cliffs or roaming around Coral Castle.

Unlike the original Quad Launcher, the Burst Quad Launcher shoots rockets in bursts, as the name suggests.

Each pull of the trigger will fire two rockets, dealing 42 damage each. Surprisingly, one burst only removes one rocket from the chamber, so you can shoot four bursts before reloading.

You can pick this one up for 600 Gold Bars, which seems to be the new standard across all Exotic weapons. The Burst Quad Launcher was released alongside the Chug Cannon. You can find our guide to that item here.

We expect to see several new Exotics come to Fortnite before the season ends, so stay tuned to more guides like this one.

Fortnite Flare Gun Locations

Fortnite’s Flare Guns have returned for a limited time, but they can only be found at specific locations. Here’s where the Flare Guns are located and how players can obtain them.

Flare Guns were first introduced in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3. Right after shakedowns were introduced in Season 2, Flare Guns gave players an even easier way to locate their opponents. By shooting a flare into the air, nearby enemies were revealed for a period of time.

On top of revealing opponents, Fortnite’s Flare Gun could also light wooden structures on fire. This was a new mechanics introduced in Season 3 and is still a great way to keep opponents out of their wooden shelters.

Flare Location in Fortnite Season 6

As shown on the map below, there are two locations where players can find the Flare Gun. Unlike its previous iterations, players will have to purchase the Flare Gun from an NPC. Blaze located at Timber Tent and Raptor located at Crash Site will sell players a Flare Gun for 245 Gold Bars.

The Flare Gun will only be around from May 6 until May 13. After which, players will have to wait until the next time Epic Games decides to unvault the Flare Gun. But, for the next seven days, players can light structures on fire and reveal their foes with the pull of a trigger.

In addition to operating as it did in prior seasons, the Flare Gun can also reveal the locations of animals. This will make it easier for players to locate specific animals for quests, but the bright flare will also attract the attention of other players.

The Flare Gun is being brought back in honor of the first Season 6 Wild Week. This event focuses on fire weapons, thus the return of Fortnite’s Flare Gun. This also means that players can expect other vaulted weapons or items to return with each new Wild Week.

Players should enjoy their time with the Flare Gun while it lasts, and stay tuned for other unvaulted weapon updates.

How to claim weekly Fortnite Crew bonuses

The Fortnite Crew membership is offering weekly bonuses to active subscribers, and here is how to claim those items.

Fortnite Bearallel Universe loading screen

To sweeten Epic Game’s monthly subscription service, players are being offered a weekly Fortnite Crew bonus during the month of May.

Epic Games announced the Fortnite Crew membership during Chapter 2 Season 5. Players could pay $11.99 a month to receive an exclusive skin, 1,000 V-Bucks, and access to the latest Battle Pass. Over time, Epic Games has continued to partner with other services to make Fortnite Crew an even better deal.

Fortnite Crew members have been offered free Disney+ subscriptions, Spotify memberships, and even access to Fortnite’s Save The World mode. However, players discovered that they only had to subscribe every other month to unlock these bonuses. Now, Epic Games is offering weekly bonuses to ensure members stay subscribed all month long.

Claiming weekly Fortnite Crew bonuses

When the May 2021 Fortnite Crew membership was revealed, players were quick to notice that subscribers would receive weekly bonuses. While the Epic blog post didn’t specify what these bonuses were, it did tell players to check their cosmetic lockers every Tuesday.

The first weekly Fortnite Crew bonus is the Bearallel Universe loading screen. In order for players to redeem this item they have to have an active Fortnite Crew subscription. The bonus will be deposited into the player’s locker automatically the next time they log in.

If the player does not receive a notification that the loading screen has been unlocked, they will need to check their locker. If the loading screen is not found, check to see if the subscription to Fortnite Crew is still active.

The loading screen features the Cuddle Team Leader being transported to a futuristic city covered in neon lights. Some players believe that these bonuses will help tell the story that the Fortnite Crew pass has set up. Others believe that this may be hinting at another iteration of the Cuddle Team Leader coming to the game soon.

Regardless, it is a pretty sweet loading screen that only Crew members have access to. Players shouldn’t expect the weekly Fortnite Crew bonus to be any bigger than a loading screen or back bling. Even still, these are only cosmetic items that can be obtained by Fortnite Crew members.

Fortnite Season 6 marked the return of Exotic weapons to Fortnite. Not all of the Season 6 weapons are there, however, and they’ve moved locations.

There’s no shortage of new mechanics in Fortnite Season c, with the addition of crafting, the map changes, and a whole lot more.

Mythics have returned to the game in Season 6 but in a limited capacity. The only classic Mythic items in Fortnite Season 5 include the Spire Jumpboots and the Spire Assassin’s Primal Shotgun.

What’s more, Epic added craftable items to the game that allow players to create unique weapons out of existing parts. For instance, a Mechanical Bow and two Shockwave Grenades make the Shockwave Bow – a massive upgrade from both weapons.

Fortnite Season 6 Exotic weapon locations

Exotic weapons have returned to Fortnite Season 6, but not as many as we had in Season 5. These will be supplementary items rather than the focus of the season, which appears to be on the new crafting mechanic.

Many of the NPCs who sold these items in Season 5 have also either moved locations or don’t sell them anymore, so a new guide is needed. Here’s a map of all of the Season 6 Exotic weapon locations.

Fortnite Season 6 All Exotic Weapon Locations

As you can see, there are seven Exotic weapons and items currently available in Fortnite Season 6. These are the:

  • Hop Rock Dualies: sold by Gutbomb in Logjam Woodworks
  • Chug Cannon: sold by Slurp Jonesy in Slurpy Swamp
  • Shadow Tracker Pistol: sold by Power Chord in Dance Club Cabin
  • Dub Shotgun: sold by Burnout south of Steamy Stacks
  • Grappler Bow: sold by Lara Croft in Stealthy Stronghold
  • Unstable Bow: sold by Rebirth Raven northwest of Sweaty Sands
  • Raz’s Mythic Explosive Bow: dropped after eliminating Raz at The Spire

The good news is that, unlike last season, all of the NPCs that sell Exotics only spawn in one location – at least, so far.

We’ll keep this post updated as Epic add more Exotics to Fortnite Season 6. We expect to see them takes things further as the season goes on, so stay tuned to more news on Exotic weapons.
