Mythic weapons in Fortnite are new with the arrival of Fortnite Season 2. Among those new weapons are the addition of mythic weapons like the Minigun and the Drum Gun.
Here's everything you need to know about the new mythic weapons in Fortnite and what you need to do to get them.
All Fortnite Mythic Weapons
Although Season 2 has just started, there are already five mythic weapons located on the map with more to be added to the game on subsequent patches. So far, the five weapons are the Scar Assault Rifle, the Boom Bow, the Minigun, the Heavy Assault Rifle, and the Drum Gun.
Out of those weapons, the most powerful seems to be the Drum Gun and the Minigun. When using both of the guns in game, famous streamer and player Tyler "Ninja" Blevins expressed that both were incredibly overpowered, going so far as to even apologize to an opposing player after eliminating them from the game with the guns.
How to Get Fortnite Mythic Weapons
Getting mythic weapons isn't as easy as just stumbling upon the right chest, you have to go to specific points of interest on the map and defeat a non-player character in order to get the high powered weapon. Each mythic weapon is associated with a specific area of the map and a specific NPC boss.
- Going to the Shark located in the northwest portion of the map will have you face off against Skye for the chance to obtain the Scar Assault Rifle from either their loot drop or the vault.
- Going to the Rig in the southwest portion of the map will pit you against TNTina for a shot at getting the mythic Boom Bow.
- Venturing to the Grotto on the east side of the map will lock you in a battle with Brutus and give you the Minigun if you manage to take him down.
- Going to the Yacht on the northeast part of the map will pit you against Meowscles for a chance at getting the Heavy Assault Rifle.
- Finally, going to the Agency located in the center of the map will have you take on Midas for the Drum Gun.
After defeating the NPC, pick up their vault key card from the loot and unlock the vault at that location to obtain their mythic weapon.
