The method of how to get the Storm Scout Sniper in Fortnite has changed. In Wednesday's update, the location and acquisition for several Exotic weapons were shuffled around. This includes the Storm Scout Sniper, which could originally be purchased from Lexa at Hunter's Haven for a hefty price of 1,225 Gold Bars.
How to Get the Storm Scout Sniper in Fortnite
The Storm Scout Sniper is now in the possession of an NPC named Mave. She can be found on the southeast edge of the map near a cliff overlooking the coast. To easily find her start at Catty Corner and travel east until you arrive at her cliffside campsite.
Once you have found Mave you can purchase the Storm Scout Sniper from her for 500 Gold Bars. This is a substantial price deduction from before, at less than half the cost of buying from Lexa before the update. This gives more players an opportunity to purchase and experience play with the Exotic weapon.
Even though the Storm Scout Sniper can be more easily purchased, Gold Bars can still be hard to come by. They can be earned by completing bounties or challenges assigned by NPCs across the Fortnite map. It is wise to take quick advantage of the Storm Scout Sniper's current price, as it could go back up in another update.
The Storm Scout Sniper requires some saving to acquire, but it is well worth the value. On top of dealing high amounts of damage, it also has a map embedded into its scope that leads the player to the next Storm Circle. This gives its wielder a significant advantage in any Fortnite match.
