How to find the Flare Gun in Fortnite

The Flare Gun has just been added to Fortnite and we're excited to learn how this can be used to keep our enemies at bay.

If you want to get your hands on a Flare Gun, all you need to do is look for it. It's going to be available as ground loot, in loot chests, and in Supply Drops. Here's what Epic Games has had to say. It's not a lot, but it's something?

" Don’t leave it up to just lightning to start fires. With this hotfix, the Flare Gun has been unvaulted! So now in addition to Firefly Jars, you can spark Flare Guns to make use of spreading flames. Find Flare Guns in Chests, on the ground, and from Supply Drops!"

The Flare Gun is currently not available in Competitive Playlists, however, Epic Games has clarified that this could be added in the future.

" During this Season, items like the Flare Gun and Shield Keg could potentially be introduced to competitive playlists after a one-to-two week evaluation period. In this Season in particular, we're evaluating the viability of more mid-Season items introduced to competitive playlists than in recent previous Seasons."
