One of the newest Exotic items in Fortnite Season 5 is the powerful Chug Cannon. Here’s how to get your hands on one.
Epic made some massive changes to Fortnite Season 5, especially in the loot pool department. There’s still a Mythic weapon and item in the game, but most of the unique items come by way of Exotics.
The v15.30 update added two new Exotics to the game: the Burst Quad Launcher and the Chug Cannon. The latter has been talked about for some time, so it’s exciting to finally be able to try it out in-game.
How to get the Chug Cannon
As is the case with all Exotic weapons and items, you’ll need to get the Chug Cannon from an NPC. Remedy, the medic from Chapter 2 Season 1, sells Fortnite’s newest exotic item at her two locations in Craggy Cliffs or Hilltop House.

You’ll need to track Remedy down if you want to be sure to grab the Chug Cannon, but most Exotic dealers have more than one possible spawn location.
The Chug Cannon works exactly how you’d expect it to – like a Bandage Bazooka that offers shields. It takes up two slots in your inventory and heals you for 15 per shot – either health or shields.
Instead of reloading, the weapon recharges over time. You can pick one up from Remedy for a modest 600 Gold Bars.
With more than a month left in Fortnite Season 5, we expect Epic to add a few more interesting Exotics before it’s all said and done. When they do, we’ll be here to tell you how to get them.
Fortnite Flare Gun locations in Season 6 week 8
Fortnite’s Flare Gun has returned for a limited time, and here is where players can purchase the dual purpose weapon in Season 6.
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.
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.
All Fortnite Season 6 Exotic Weapon locations
Fortnite Season 6 is here, and only a few Exotic weapons made it. Here are all Exotic weapon locations for the new Fortnite season.
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.
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.
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.
