How to get the new Mythic items in Fortnite Season 5

Fortnite Season 5 introduced new Mythic weapons and items to the game. Here’s where you can find them.

Published

Fortnite Season 5 is out now, and you know what that means: new Mythics. Here’s where you can find them.

Mythic items and weapons are a hot topic in the Fortnite world. Some people love them, and others have hated the idea since way back in the Infinity Blade days.

Season 5 was released with only one known Mythic item and two Mythic weapons, although that may change in the future. For now, it appears as though most of the Battle Pass characters are carrying weapons of a new rarity: Exotic.

Let’s start with the Mandalorian, as he is the first Mythic boss that players discovered in the early hours of the patch.

Fortnite Mandalorian Location

You can find The Mandalorian patrolling his crashed ship on the western edge of the desert biome, south of Colossal Coliseum. He’ll be carrying his sniper rifle and jetpack – both of which are worth grabbing once you eliminate him.

The sniper isn’t too special, apart from its thermal vision and ability to deal melee damage. The real prize is Mando’s jetpack, which allows you to aim-down-sights while flying in the air. We expect to see a ton of trickshots coming out of this one.

Consequently, this is also the location you need to visit to complete the “Open a Razer Chest” quest. If you’re alone – which isn’t likely at this stage of the game – you can kill two birds with one oversized Sniper Rifle.

Fortnite Ruckus Location

After a few days of playing, fans discovered that The Mandalorian wasn’t the only boss in Fortnite. As it turns out, Ruckus is patrolling Hydro 16 armed with a Mythic AK – straight from Chapter 2 Season 2.

Hydro 16 – for those who don’t know – is the building beneath the dam to the east of Slurpy Swamp.

Ruckus doesn’t seem to spawn right away, either. You can land here, loot up, deal with any enemy players, and fight Ruckus for his loot.

Ruckus Fortnite location

For now, these are the only known Mythic items in Fortnite. We assume that the other Battle Pass characters will join Mando in Hunter’s Haven, Colossal Coliseum, and Stealthy Stronghold, but they aren’t available just yet.

We’ll continue to update this post as more bosses, and Mythic abilities come to Fortnite. For now, we wish you luck grabbing these Mythics without getting sniped.

How to visit houses in Slurpy Swamp in the same match

One Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenge requires players to visit three houses in Slurpy Swamp in the same map. Here’s where to find them.

The Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges are here. Take a look at where to find houses in Slurpy Swamp.

The Week 7 challenges for Fortnite Season 5 are relatively easy when you compare them to last week’s but there are s7till a couple of challenges that require some searching.

One of these has players looking for houses in Slurpy Swamp. At first glance, this challenge seems relatively easy – until you realize that the Slurpy Swamp POI is filled with factories.

This challenge requires you to leave the main POI and move south – more towards the Flush Factory area. Here are six locations that you can visit. Keep in mind, you only need to go to three of them.

As always, Team Rumble will offer you the best chance of success. Not only will you be relatively undisturbed in your search, but the 100% spawn rate of chests in this mode means you’re guaranteed to walk away with some loot.

You could complete this in any mode, as these houses typically offer a safe place to land. You’ll also have the benefit of free shields from the water surrounding Slurpy Swamp.

We have a full guide for all of these challenges here if you need it. We’ll be back next week with guides for the Week 8 challenges as well.

How to earn the free Fortnite Crew emote in Season 5

Epic Games are offering players who sign up for the Fortnite Crew membership a free, exclusive emote for a limited time.

Monthly Crew Pack leaked image

Epic Games is offering players a free emote to go with their Fortnite Crew membership in Fortnite Season 5.

The Fortnite Crew membership is an interesting idea. Players can sign up for the system for $11.99 per month. In return, they receive the Battle Pass, an exclusive cosmetic set, and 1,000 V-Bucks to use as they please.

January 2021 was the second month of the Crew system, and it wasn’t without its speed bumps. Some players logged in on January 1 to see that their Green Arrow skin pack was nowhere to be found.

Even more players had to wait over 2 weeks to receive their V-Bucks for the month. The system is still new, but it’s clear that Epic have some polishing to do.

As a way to throw Fortnite Crew members a bone, Epic are offering a free “Members Only” emote to anyone who signs up for the Crew pack.

You need to sign up for a Fortnite Crew membership and log into Fortnite before February 15. This timing means that non-members can wait and see what the February cosmetic pack holds before committing.

The Crew membership, when it’s working, is a good deal for dedicated Fortnite players who want to get the most bang for their buck. An exclusive skin, pickaxe, back bling, and 1,000 V-Bucks is well worth the $11.99 price tag.

We’ll let you know when we learn more about the February Fortnite Crew pack. Until then, enjoy Season 5.
