This time, the Shockwave Launcher beat out the Rift-to-Go and has made its way back to the Battle Royale Island. just because its in the game, however, doesn’t mean its easy to find. This guide will show you where to find the Shockwave Launcher in Fortnite Season 8.
Where to Find Shockwave Launcher in Fortnite Season 8
Like many of its contemporaries in the Legendary weapon tier, there isn’t exactly a set locations that someone needs to travel and will guarantee that they will get it. It is mostly up to chance. The weapon can be found in Chests, both regular and Cosmic, Supply Drops, and even sometimes just be found on the ground, though this last one is extremely rare. If you really want to find the weapon, the only real suggestion that I can provide you is to aim for areas with a large amount of Chests to loot as well as hunt down supply drops for a greater chance of getting the all too familiar weapon.
The weapon was first introduced in Season 3 of Fortnite Chapter 2 and was a Mythic weapon. The weapon doesn’t actually do damage and is more of a mobility weapon as the grenades can be shot at the players feet to send them flying across the island or high up into the air, allowing them to traverse the world or get a elevated position on an enemy. Currently, it is not known how long the weapon will remain out of the vault, so you might want to get in there and use it because it might disappear once again.
Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 8 is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, PC, iOS, and Android.
