The Flare Gun and Firework Flare Gun are excellent ways to locate hidden enemies, as when you shoot these Fortnite weapons, it will reveal opponents near the vicinity.
Using these guns can be highly beneficial to uncover an unsuspecting gamer hiding in a bush or keeping track of fleeing players.
If you are unfamiliar with how to use these Flare Guns to reveal opponents in Fortnite, we have you covered with everything you need to know.
How Do You Reveal Opponents With Flare Gun or Firework Flare Gun in Fortnite
When using the Flare Gun or Firework Flare Gun to reveal opponents, you must shoot the weapon near the player.
This will launch a flare into the air, which, if it hangs there long enough, marks all players within 50 meters of it for 60 seconds.
The flare will highlight the opponents by marking them with a red diamond above their hand. This will make it easier to track them.
Where to Get a Flare Gun or Firework Flare Gun in Fortnite
Fortnite players can find a Flare or Firework Flare Gun by:
- Opening chests.
- Finding it as part of the ground loot.
- Selecting the Tracker’s Armory Reality Augment.
Since it is part of the loot pool, the best way to get one is to land at one of the large POIs containing many chests. The POIs with the most are Mega City (116) and Slappy Shores (61).
Traveling to these locations increases the chance of receiving one as you can open more chests. However, getting your hands on these guns will rely on luck.
If you have a ton of gold saved up, you can re-roll your Reality Augments until you receive Tracker’s Armory.
