How do I get the Big Chill Launcher in Fortnite Season 5?

The Big Chill Launcher was added to Fortnite earlier this year and is part of the new weapon class.

Fortnite has been expanded to include exotic weapons as the rarest version of powerful weapons in the game. Exotics can only be bought and cannot be found in floor loot or in chests. The Big Chill Launcher has now been added to the list of exotic species. It can be obtained from an NPC named Snowmando who was just added to the game.

Unlike some NPCs, Snowmando is only in one area, which makes the Big Chill Launcher a bit easier. Snowmando is located near Catty Corner on a snow-capped mountain south of the village. Once players find the NPC on the mountaintop, they can prompt the NPC and select the Big Chill Launcher option.

Big Chill Launcher costs and exotic weapons in Fortnite

The Big Chill Launcher has to be purchased and there is no other way to get the gun. Unfortunately for many, the Big Chill Launcher is now also the most expensive exotic weapon in Fortnite.

All exotics require gold bars to be obtained, and the Big Chill Launcher costs a few. 1,455 gold bars are required to use the new launcher. The acquisition can take a while.

Is the Big Chill Launcher worth that much gold? Well, it does 83 damage to players per hit and shoots grenades that act similar to grenade launchers to easily obliterate some players.

Another exotic weapon that was included in the new update is the Dragon’s Breath sniper rifle. The new rifle can be bought from the NPC named Blaze and is in one of two locations in each match. The two locations are wooden tents and Pristine Point. The Dragon’s Breath sniper rifle can be bought there for just over 1,200 gold bars.

Gold bars are a new currency system added to Chapter 2: Season 5 of Fortnite. Based on the season’s bounty hunter aesthetic, they can be obtained by looting chests, locking bounties, or even killing players and collecting a few bars.

The new currency also carries over from game to game, meaning players can save enough each game until they have enough to buy some exotic weapons. Some of the new weapons are certainly worth trying.
