Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 has been going on for quite some time now. Till now we have seen the release of various new weapons, skins, and cosmetic items in the game along with the return of various other items which have not been a part of the game for quite some time. One such item is the Lock-On Pistol, first introduced in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 MEGA. Now Epic Games has decided to bring this weapon back into the game once again. So in this guide, we are going to talk about how you can go to the correct locations where you can find the Lock-On Pistol in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 and how you can use it properly.
Where to find the Lock-On Pistol in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1
The Lock-On Pistol can be found in Fortnite at various locations in Chapter 5 Season 1. They can be found in the form of chest loot, floor loot, supply drops, etc. There is no permanent location where you can find the Lock-On Pistol in Fortnite as spawning locations change in every match. They are also not so common to come across on the map as only a limited number of these pistols are available throughout the match.
There’s no guarantee that you’ll find a Lock-On Pistol if you are searching for it but a few ways are using which you can increase your chances of coming across it. Firstly, you can try to land at Hot Spots which appear in gold at the beginning of every match on the map. These locations have greater chances of finding higher rarity weapons and a lot of loot in general.
Another way you can get your hands on the Lock-On Pistol is by looking for it in open water bodies. There is a 15% chance of finding the pistol in open water while there’s a 7% chance of finding it as other forms of loot. This is why you can try to land at the edges of the map close to the shore and try to catch high-rarity loot which is hidden with the help of fishing rods.
How to use the Lock-On Pistol in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1
One of the reasons why the Lock-On Pistol has not been a part of Fortnite for so long is that many players consider it to be too overpowered. This is because you can use this pistol to track your opponents in a 50-meter radius and hit them with up to five bullets with the fifth one dealing critical damage.
As the pistol has the capability of locking on to the target, there is not much one can do to avoid being shot at with it if they are discovered by the tracking system of the pistol. While it might not be pleasant for you if you are on the other end of the pistol if you are the one using it, it might be greatly beneficial for you.
