Where to find a Lock On Pistol in Fortnite

The Lock On Pistol can be found in Chests, Loot Caches, and on the ground, as it has been added to the regular Fortnite loot pool.

Unlike the Kinetic Blade, there doesn’t appear to be a specific location on the map that guarantees a Lock On Pistol. So, you’ll have to loot up as normal and hope for the best.

That being said, you can drastically improve your chances of finding this new sidearm by landing at a named location like Mega City or Slappy Shores, as these will have far more Chests and loot to search through.

The Lock On Pistol is perfect for hitting moving targets in Fortnite.

How to damage opponents with Lock On Pistol in Fortnite

Once you’ve managed to get hold of a Lock On Pistol in Fortnite, simply press and hold the aim button and point the weapon at an enemy until the crosshairs turn pink. This means the pistol has successfully locked on to the opponent, so your next shots will automatically track the target.

Then, all you have to do is pull the trigger and watch as your bullets follow the player for a guaranteed hit. Make sure you keep your aim relatively close to the enemy while firing, though, as straying too far away will break the lock-on.

  1. Open Chests and loot up to find a Lock On Pistol.
  2. Press and hold the aim button while looking at an enemy.

  4. Press shoot to fire bullets that will automatically hit the opponent.
