The flare gun in now available in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1. Starting fires, dealing damage, and revealing opponents are some of the things that can be done using the flare gun. This unvaulted item isn’t new to Fortnite, but it is the first time it has appeared in the battle royale since Chapter 2 Season 6.
Not a lot has changed with its functionality. In Chapter 3 Season 1, it works as it before and can be found in the same locations. Players can get a flare gun from the ground, from looting chests, and from supply drops.
Game developer Epic Games regarding the unvaulting of flare guns in Chapter 3 Season 1 said, “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!”
Players can find the item in normal looting areas on the island. Players might come across a flare gun on the floor of a building, found in a chest in the attic of a house, or in a supply drop. These methods are how most of the players get the majority of their loot. However, there’s always a chance that an eliminated player might drop a flare gun if they already have one in their inventory.
Players should ensure that there is space for it in their item/weapon bar, as the flare gun is going to be extremely useful in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1. Some players have already shown that to be true. As a utility item, the flare gun can be shot in the air to give away positioning and mark any players that are seen for up to one minute. This can be a good way to start a fight or a third-party engagement.
Moreover, the flare gun can also come in handy as a weapon. The flare gun will damage players when it makes contact and will also set fire to the environment and any wooden structures in the vicinity.
