Where to Find the Sideways Rifle & Minigun in Fortnite?

In Chapter 2 Season 8, you could find Sideways weapons by opening Sideways Chests and defeating Cube Monsters.

However, this won’t be the case in Chapter 3 Season 2, making it much easier to obtain them!

It is also important to note that you can now upgrade these weapons by finding an Upgrade Bench and spending Gold Bars. We hope you enjoy using them again!

There are three different ways to find the Sideways Rifle and Minigun in Fortnite:

The first way to find these weapons is by killing a player who is carrying one.

Another way to find them is by opening chests scattered around the map. The more you open, the greater your chances of finding a Sideways Weapon!

The last way of finding one of these amazing weapons is by finding them on the ground as floor loot.

And that’s it! It’s really that’s simple.

However, remember that these weapons are rare loot, therefore they won’t be as common as other weapons.

You will need to get your hands on these two weapons if you want to complete the challenges in Fortnite‘s Sideways Showdown Week! Remember it ends on May 24.
