Your weapons will determine your survival in Fortnite Season 5. Finding a Rocket Launcher is rare, but there’s a way to collect one along with a Mythic Heavy Assault Rifle. Here’s how you can get both.

Fortnite Season 4 is over, and we’re moving from superpowers back to weapons. With The Mandalorian headlining Season 5, there are a lot of new weapons to find. You can get many of these as loot by pursuing bounties, but some are harder to collect than others.

The Rocket Launcher isn’t going to pop up like any random loot. This explosive weapon can only be found if you complete a certain bounty. When you do, you’ll also unlock the Mythic Heavy Assault Rifle location.

You need to tackle the bounty that has you go after Ruckus. This NPC has both of the weapons you’re after and can be found near Slurpy Swamp.

Here’s how you find Ruckus:

  1. Join the Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Jump from the Battle Bus and land near Slurpy Swamp.
  3. Make your way to the small compound that’s east of the swamp. You’ll find Ruckus there.
  4. Kill him and take his weapons.

This bounty isn’t too difficult by itself, but it can get a little tedious with him firing rockets at you the entire time. Plus, you might face competition from other players trying to get the weapons. You can make things easier by building some structures for cover and shooting at him whenever the opportunity presents itself.

Once he’s been dealt with, you can collect the Rocket Launcher and Mythic Heavy Assault Rifle. These will make you a force to be reckoned with, so they’re worth the effort put in to collect them. Just make sure you get to them before the other enemies do.

Fortnite Season 5 has many other weapons for you to collect, including the brand new Exotic weapons that have been introduced in this update. Go out there and get yourself some great gear!
