So, where can you find a Thermal Weapon?

Here is what you need to know.

Thermal Weapons in Fortnite: Where to Find One?

Currently, there’s only one Thermal Weapon in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2, which might make the mission of finding one quite challenging. The Thermal Weapon is dubbed Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle and is really powerful!

The Thermal Scope Assault Rifle comes with a sleek blueish hue for the screen if the opponent makes a movement in your vision, meaning their heat signature glows on the scope. Neat!

The weapon is also helping you ignore the other colors of the surroundings so that you can identify the nearby threats better. That is a massive advantage for medium-to-long-distance shootouts.

So, where can you find a Thermal Weapon?

There are various ways to come across a Thermal Weapon in Fortnite. From checking up the floor loot, searching chests, defeating an IO Hunter, or even defeating the Huntmaster Saber.

1. Defeating the Huntmaster Saber
