I wish they would stop blocking the quests that go with these from being done in Team Rumble. I swear they pushed something out last week that let them be possible to do, even if the quest screen still said they weren't.


ZerkWilder

Yeah I got my sideways damage in Rumble even though it said I couldn't. Weirdly the rifle wouldn't register but the minigun did.


pmjm

Fastest way I found to do the sideways damage was to pick up the minigun and use it against the bosses, like Gunnar, Sloane and Saber.


NewMexicoRick

Fastest way to clear (I think): Play solo squads, land at the small base south of Command Cavern. Wanna get as many scan chests as you can. One in that south base, then enter CC via the south entrance. There's another scan chest on your right behind a metal container. Then "cross the street" and head into the southwest corner of CC, there's a bathroom back there, and some rocks, and another scanner chest. From that southwest corner, enter the main cavern and build/box up with some height. From there you can hit Gunnar with rail guns, or random guards that are patrolling the cavern. Unfortunately you can't clear the scanner bonus with guards, but you can clear the rail gun bonus. Get as much as you can, then bail out with a scanner and head into the rest of the game. Quickest way to get the scanner bonus from here is to "third party" fights and spam them with the scanner. Good luck.


Deedication

I shot the sharks and it worked.


Agreeable-Weather-89

Holy shit that's genius, I've been shooting Sloan and wolves mostly and it's worked.so far only 1,000 to go. Plus the recon scanner but I think I'll just pick them up, and some meds, and do nothing but bait bad players and spam fights as much as possible since you can tag the same person multiple times so long as your first tag goes away.


sonicrules11

Honestly it wouldnt be an issue if they were consitent with what can and cant be done in team rumble. Its seems like its only recently that the unvaulted challenges cant be done in TR.


NewMexicoRick

Yeah kinda sucks. Feel like everything should be fair game for TR. Heads up that next week is bargain bin week, as long as you're topped up to 5k gold it should go pretty quick.


sonicrules11

I was not aware thats gonna be up next week. Thank you!

FunnyCobra002

It's actually the opposite of what you said


GalacticGizmo

Uh… no? Not *only* new players play Zero Build. In fact, some of the best players play Zero Build. I know people who have been around for a long time and they prefer Zero Build despite being able to build well. Not to mention the rail gun was in the game only 3 seasons ago. EDIT: Good job changing your comment. Thought we wouldn’t notice, huh?


Jizzblaster-Dan

Yeah, as a guy that's been building *hard* for four years I now spend most of my time in No Build. And I can tell you right now, I ain't just going up against noobs.


Gaiden_95

This is just false


MongooseOne

This is my first season. Can someone explain why these were so popular?


FunnyCobra002

The recon scanner can mark enemies and the rail gun can shoot through walls


Zacginger

[chuckles] I’m in danger


MongooseOne

Nice! My biggest question would be will scanner highlight bush campers?


Loch32

Yes. There's also a recon scanner built into the radio dish at the top of command that scans all players and chests, io chests, ammo boxes, etc


cereal_killah_1980

There’s some more of those scanning computers in the bottom cave part as well btw.


Dancing_Clean

It highlights anyone in its range. It lets out a pulse and keeps doing it til it dies out (it can also be broken). The rail gun shoots through any build or obstacle, including rocks and trees.


Ankthar_LeMarre

It could also be picked up by the flying saucers' tractor beam and carried around, which is obviously irrelevant right now.


LeastGarden555

Yes it will!


AsianPotato77

It also highlights chests animals and anything you can interact with pretty much


theNOOBYlifeboi222

*Season 7 PTSD flashbacks intensify*


Lvolf

yes


Rieiid

Yeah it highlights you regardless of what you're hiding behind.


Gilbeezy426

Bloody hell.


Xero0911

For recon scanner as well, it has 2 shots then recharges. So no ammo at all. So it's easy to keep around


avrge_gmr

Recon scanner marks enemies and the rail gun can charge up and shoot through walls. There’s a no build mode. I foresee pain


IAmWantedByTheGov

Railgun will rail people ​ Recon scanner will show you enemies location


dannydamaja

I love the weekly unvaults


AnApexPlayer

So will it be vaulted in a week?


DifficultPit96

yes


VI-Pok3

Thank god At least I'm only not playing for a week until it's vaulted again


S0larSc0pe

Really man?


jesus9826

I don't blame him. The recon scanner is one of the most overpowered items ever in this game. It's ridiculous considering how horrible sbmm is and now you bring this back and it makes camping or sneaking around near impossible


VI-Pok3

Yes I'm still sick of dying to this combo every single game when it was out If you can't see how these 2 items should literally not be in the game at all, then you should reevaluate how you view the balance of the game. C2s7 was near unplayable for me, since it was quite literally the *only* thing I died to. Maybe a pump/smg death every once in a while, but 99% railgun. It is the best gun in the entire game hands down. It's better than a prenerf s10 mech if you can aim right.


LemonLimeAlltheTime

This is my first season and it's super awesome how much stuff we get


FatherMagoolies

It’s not always like this, but I agree that this season has been refreshingly varied.


ILikeSpaceSkins

I've said it in the past and I'll say it again, this combination is really god damn OP.


origin_flame

And it's embarrassing that this season is a IO vs seven war and we have the seven mk7 but not IO weapons


theNOOBYlifeboi222

Exactly! I was so confused when their high tech weapons didn't return at the beginning of this season, I also wondered why Slone's pulse rifle didn't come back. Of course, it was so they could promote the new scoped ARs so that's understandable. (Epic please oh please bring the burst pulse rifle back)


hrkrvnk

I feel like they always try to balance things out, yet there's always some combination that is OP.


BoomanShames

couple that with no-build mode


FunnyCobra002

Yes! And I love it


PandaDad22

Especially in squads.


The_French_Soul

C2S7 flashbacks, but its only good ones and there's a lot of them


TaunTaun_22

Had me in the first half. For real though one of my favorite seasons by far! Hopefully this summer gets something close


Plairinum

If you joined this chapter, you have no idea how OP this combo is. If you think you are safe in a building, this week YOU ARE NOT


HappyGilOHMYGOD

More console players getting wrecked by pc players..... As if they needed more advantages


Glittering_Gas_5031

Lol the loot pool in the game right now is actually hilarious.


ACatOnThisApp

Can’t wait for S3 to have a much less saturated loot pool, even if only at first.


NewMexicoRick

Kind of insane, but lends a ton of variety to the game.


Pretzy86

Recon scanner! God I love this thing.


BluePantera

As someone who likes to sneak around with my wife. We hate this thing


QuiiverrReddit

This sentence can be used not in Fortnite and make sense.


BluePantera

She wouldn't let me sneak out without her so now she comes along 🤷🏻‍♂️


RoLoe24

an overpowered duo right there


Devilflame93

OP and teriffying


ICOOLDIAMONDonReddit

Im now waiting for Storm Flips for no goddamn reason I just want to use Midas while chucking them in the enemies' direction


MrJelly51

Railgun is cool but why no pulse rifle? Pulse rifle was a part of the C2S7 IO’s high-tech weapon collection, and I feel that would have even been better for the meta than the recon scanner which just makes for a ridiculous combination when paired with the railgun. Railgun isn’t even broken on its own (FOR PUBS) but when paired with the recon scanner it’s…yeah… I guess the combo is ok for a week though. I just wish they would’ve added the pulse rifle too because that’s actually a competent third person marksman-type AR, which we need in this meta filled with red dot ARs.


wexel64

At the very least the rail gun is a unique weapon mechanic and not just any other gun


MrJelly51

True, true. And it’s a fun weapon. It’s defo a bit controversial but personally I think it’s fine the way it is for pubs (maybe just make the laser more visible and brighter), I just don’t like the recon scanner being there with it, as the scanner makes the railgun significantly easier to use. Also the railgun is a pretty good counter to red dot ARs like the AUG at range. It’s just that it would’ve been neat to have the pulse rifle, a great and cool third person AR, show up alongside the railgun rather than the recon scanner which just kinda tarnishes the railgun’s reputation.


wexel64

The recon scanner is what made the rail gun good. Other snipers outclass it when you actually have a line of sight so by using the wall hack gun it’s like magic


MrJelly51

But that made it unfair, too. Sure, it felt super powerful when the combo was in your hands, but at the same time, your opponent would have no chance when you practically have wall hacks and a gun that deals max damage through walls. If you aim at players normally with the gun (no scanner), without obstacles in the way, it still has a perfect line of sight in third person AND is hitscan which is a significant advantage already. And if you had a general idea of where a player is behind a wall, you could still probably hit the player and do crazy damage. The railgun is very good on its own, but the recon scanner makes it broken past the point of truly being enjoyable in a long-term meta, at least.


wexel64

Of course not long term that’s why it got vaulted but I will enjoy using it for the week it’s back in the game


MrJelly51

Oh ok that’s understandable. And yeah considering we had the combo for a full season and (sorta) made it through I’m sure one week won’t be bad.


Xavier_Oak

I appreciate the addition of more snipers, as it stands the heavy is not particularly useful when compared to the bolt action (with the exception of facing vehicles, and even then, the 1 shot reload time will get you destroyed before you can fire a second shot). The hunting rifle was good fun and mechanically different enough to justify its overall less devastating damage. I’d love to see bows back as well!


ChaoTheBased

Railgun was broken as shit at first


ExcellentPound9908

Ima go play Minecraft bro rail gun is to broken


picklestension

I think the rail gun damage is much less now :(


FunnyCobra002

still extremely fun to use


dtn_06

I tested it in Creative and it straight up launches cars


The_Zenith13

Didnt even change


Redditkiller99x

Nope. Still the same.


picklestension

Ya you guys are right I think it was just because I had a lower rarity


vid_icarus

I love both of these weapons so much


suicidaljoker7

are there or will there be challenges for these guns?


ILikeSpaceSkins

9 challenges worth 25k xp (if the staged challenges also reward 25k at each stage)


Dealiner

They don't, second stage is 40k and I don't know about third.


davidnickbowie

Third is 50k


kashaan_lucifer

10,000 DMG with Rail gun Fuckin hell how the hell am I gonna do that?

They could at least make third stage 75k.

Thanks alot.

AdvancedMastodon

Drum shotty and 2nd drum shotty.


AzureSkyXIII

Gonna miss the sideways guns, they were sweet.


supercereality

Rail Gun definitely not OP. You can see the laser targeting you seconds before someone tries to shoot you, and using it...you are better off just running an AUG. Recon scanner could definitely be useful.


ILikeSpaceSkins

You can flick the beam onto someone before they have time to react...


Big_Dream_Lamp

Yep and that's why I hate it. I'll be safe in my builds box fighting somebody and about to win next thing I know my character like bounces and I'm at 10 health when I was at 200 lol this thing is just the cherry on top of the worst season in the game.


ILikeSpaceSkins

Primal season might still take the crown for me. I'm not sure what's worse, primal weapons or combat SMGs.


[deleted]

Primal was at least transformative. Primal fixed the balance between makeshift, primal and mechanical and brought back Tacs and Infantries. This Season is horrendous even though I like some of the new ARs.


Big_Dream_Lamp

I miss the Infantry. Season 16 was when I realized how good it was. I hate the Tac because it doesn't fit my play style.


Subject_Tira

and that still probably wouldn't kill anyway, even as a HS. You can literally laser someone with the AUG faster than you could fire a single railgun shot so eh. It's not as busted as people think it is, let's just enjoy it for the little while it's back in the game


ILikeSpaceSkins

consider a couple of these clips from c2s7: [https://www.reddit.com/r/FortNiteBR/comments/nyvkd3/just\_avoid\_the\_laser\_lol/](https://www.reddit.com/r/FortNiteBR/comments/nyvkd3/just_avoid_the_laser_lol/) [https://www.reddit.com/r/FortNiteBR/comments/nx1gh4/dont\_worry\_theres\_plenty\_of\_time\_to\_notice\_a\_rai/?utm\_source=share&utm\_medium=web2x&context=3](https://www.reddit.com/r/FortNiteBR/comments/nx1gh4/dont_worry_theres_plenty_of_time_to_notice_a_rai/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3) [https://www.reddit.com/user/ILikeSpaceSkins/comments/o8d73t/cant\_be\_bothered\_to\_upload\_this\_vid\_to\_youtube\_to/](https://www.reddit.com/user/ILikeSpaceSkins/comments/o8d73t/cant_be_bothered_to_upload_this_vid_to_youtube_to/) It's definitely busted if you know how to use it. It's essentially a free 90 tag on a boxed opponent, then you can use smgs/augs to finish them off while they're panicking


Subject_Tira

I know how the railgun works, i used it all the time in c2s7 But seeing the meta we're playing in rn, it's really not as bad as other weapons we have at our disposal atm (i don't need to tell you what those are, i'm sure you know) And this is coming from someone who mainly plays no-build and is most likely gonna get shot a couple times through cover this week. And you know what, if you manage to hit me through a wall, you deserve the damage imo


FunnyCobra002

It's just here for one week. lets try to enjoy it while we can


ILikeSpaceSkins

No one else seems to know how to use it so I'm not complaining lol


theNOOBYlifeboi222

The shot connects instantly so dont aim where your target's gonna be, aim where they are at the very moment.


ILikeSpaceSkins

I know man. My win rate doubled to 20% in season 7 due to this thing lol.


PikaDogg

Ik I'm about to sound stupid but what's an AUG?


The-1v1er

It’s the burst AR, it’s okay to not know every gun man you’re not stupid


gartacus

To add on a bit, people also do this with other guns that have been in Fortnite. They’ll call the purple pump a Spas, or the gold SMG a p90. They’re just referring to the IRL counterpart


ILikeSpaceSkins

the burst rifle, the model is based off a gun called the AUG


Xboxblewupmypizza

The striker burst assault rifle. It’s based of a real life gun called an AUG


AnApexPlayer

The laser is very buggy, at least in c2s7. It teleports around and you can't tell where it's aiming, at least on Xbox one and series x.


hsudonym_

Unpopular opinion: I hate the rail gun


Big_Dream_Lamp

Same. It's stupidly op but it fits right into this season with all the op guns or variations of op guns (like how Drum Shotgun is a variation of the Primal). I just can't wait for this season to end. I hate people who thinks it's balanced by the red line before it shots like IF THEY FLICK IT HOW ON EARTH DO I SEE IT?!


hsudonym_

Yeah it's not like this is everyone's first time seeing the rail gun. Majority of the player base know how to flick the shot to avoid being detected. Haven't seen it in action yet but I hope it got nerfed like the heavy sniper


Big_Dream_Lamp

Same I hope it got nerfed. If it hasn't yet I hope it will. I was glad to find out the Lightsaber's guard was nerfed (or I just got better aim lol) so it wasn't that bad if they were running towards me. But that bug the Lightsabers had where they ran all around you and went into the ground while doing the attacks made it so unfair and they didn't even fix it until they took them out.

They've been doing this at the end of the season since C2S6. They were originally called Wild Weeks, but they seem to have dropped the name this chapter.

This one at least makes some sense because they are IO weapons.


MauveSectant

YEEES. MY BABY RAIL GUN! WELCOME BACK!

What they need to do is bring the bolt back and not nerf it

The scanner marks enemies and chests close to where the shell lands.

I think that makes sense

I really don't like railgun, I mean it's an interesting weapon but there is so many better ones now. And of course third stage is 10000 damage, why?

Fizzay

I only came back to Fortnite a week or two ago after being gone since like S5 or 6 last season. What the fuck do these do?


FunnyCobra002

Recon scanner can mark players and rail gun can shoot through walls


Fizzay

Is the recon scanner kind of like how shakedowns used to be then but in a certain area? I'm guessing you shoot it and it reveals that stuff where it's shot?


SmearReddit

Yeah, that's exactly how it works

That's pretty cool then.

TIL I'm awaful at the railgun (and all snipers) hoo boy, these quests are gonna be tough for me this week.

You forgot Kymera Ray Gun. But I doubt you would want to release a balanced gun that does little build damage in this season that's known for having every op weapon or a variation of it.
