Fortnite has released a ton of content in the form of new items and weapons in the game. To keep the number of weapons, items, and so on in the game in check Epic Games constantly keeps on vaulting and unvaulting them through various updates. In the recent v28.10 update, weapons such as the Lock-On Pistol and the Anvil Launcher are returning to the game. But the Anvil Launcher can be a little difficult to come across, so in this guide, we are going to talk about the locations where you can find the Anvil Launcher and how to use them properly in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1.
Where to find the Anvil Launcher in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1
You can try to look in locations with high loot spawning rates in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 to find the Anvil Launcher. These include locations such as Lavish Lair, Grand Glacier, Fencing Fields, and so on. At these places, you will have the most chances of finding the Anvil Launcher in both rare and regular chests. You can also take it from players you’ve defeated if they were already carrying it.
One method does guarantee the acquirement of the Anvil Launcher and that is buying it from the Mecha Team Shadow for 250 Gold Bars. You can find this NPC on the train station located north of the Pleasant Plaza. To get there you will need to land on the location shown in the image after the bus launches.
Once you reach there you’ll need to start looking for Mecha Team Shadow immediately as other enemies will most likely come looking for the launcher too. So you need to quickly acquire it and leave the location as soon as possible.
How to use the Anvil Launcher in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1
The Anvil Launcher can be found in three rarities namely Rare, Epic, and Legendary. The rarer the launcher is, the more damage will be dealt to your enemies using it. Currently, the Anvil Launcher can only be used in Fortnite to fire into vehicles and not buildings as such.
You will need to lock the launcher onto a vehicle and fire the rocket at a far enough distance from your target. This is because if you use the launcher nearby, there are chances of causing damage to yourself too which might even be fatal enough.
