The case has been the same with Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3, and the latest update v21.10. It has added a new Rare Miscellaneous item called the Ripsaw Launcher, which is a pretty useful tool in combat.
There are a number of ways in which you can use this weapon to inflict damage and it is a very cool item to have, nonetheless. The following guide will help players stay updated with everything there is to know about the Ripsaw Launcher and where to find it in the game.
Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3: A sawblade weapon
The Ripsaw Launcher can both be utilized as a ranged weapon and for melee work. It inflicts 90 damage per second, and also launches sawblade projectiles which rip through environmental and player-made objects.
The trajectory while firing can be controlled by the player, but it will eventually start falling down after traveling due to gravity. Additionally, the players can also charge up the weapon for 10 seconds in order to better the capabilities when attacking.
You can also use the weapon as a normal chainsaw to physically go through objects and structures. It has a maximum Ammo Capacity of 12, and a Magazine Size of 3.
So, you can shoot off three sawblades one after another before reloading for around 4 seconds. However, one of the main issue that players need to keep in mind is how to handle the Ripsaw Launcher.
It will take a while to understand how gravity and speed of the sawblades is working in combat. Furthermore, since you have to aim manually, make sure that the distance between you and the enemies is not too great.
This is because the opponent can just move out of the way if they see the sawblades approaching from a long distance. Therefore, the Ripsaw Launcher will be an ideal weapon for close combat fights and to make your way past blockades.
Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3: Where to find the Ripsaw Launcher
The Ripsaw Launcher is found only at one specific place. Players have to make their way to the Chop Shop, which is an unmarked landmark on Artemis.
The Chop Shop is owned by the Logjam Company, and is to the north of the Logjam Lotus, east of Choppin’ Chateau, and southeast of Washout Wharf. It is a warehouse painted red, and you should enter from the front. Cross the lobby, and head right where there is the work area.
This is where an array of Ripsaw Launchers are present for the players to take. There is another way of getting your hands on the weapon which includes eliminating another player who is already in possession of the Ripsaw Launcher.
