A new set of challenges is now available in Fortnite Chapter 3, including finding a Flare Gun and marking an enemy.

Chapter 3 has added a great load of sleek new weapons, like the mighty Stinger SMG or the MK-Seven Assault Rifle, but the latest, a Flare Gun, is pretty amazing.

Where can you find a Flare Gun and complete the challenge?

We’ve compiled a cool list of everything you need to know, including tips and tricks.

Where Are the Flare Guns in Fortnite Chapter 3?

Flare Guns are non-damaging guns that can be shot into the air to mark an enemy player. Even if they’re not powerful weapons, the guns are perfect for spotting threats or ambushing an opponent.

How cool is that?

And the Flare Gun comes in quite handy for the newest challenge in which you need to complete a weekly quest by marking any enemy players using the gun!

So, where can you find one?

Flare Guns are Fortnite’s general loot pool. Such a thing means that you can find the guns only one way: searching many chests and supply drops. However, if you’re lucky enough, you can just stumble across a Flare Gun!

Unfortunately, Flare Guns aren’t sold by NPCs or Vending Machines. The best locations to find a gun is chest-heavy areas like Chonker’s Speedway or The Daily Bugle.

How to Mark an Opponent Using a Flare Gun?

Start by equipping with the Flare Gun, aim towards where you want to scan, and press fire! You’ll see how it will fly into the air, searching for enemy players.

Remember that if there aren’t any opponents nearby, you won’t complete the challenge because you won’t mark anyone. Try not to waste your ammo!
