A few weeks after the launch of Season 3 Vibe, Epic Games dropped another major update for the Fortnite battle royale that unvaults a new weapon called Ripsaw Launcher. The weapon was initially unveiled during the release of the current season, and the community was severely disappointed when the weapon didn’t join Fortnite’s firearm pool on the first day.

The Fortnite fans finally have access to the Ripsaw Launcher with the v21.10 update. However, finding it in the game is difficult, as it can only be found at a single location. With that said, here’s how to find Ripsaw Launcher in Fortnite, along with a brief overview of its stats.

Unlike other weapons, Ripsaw Launcher can’t be found on the ground, in chests, or purchased from NPC. Instead, players have to land at the factory north of Logjam Lumberyard to get Ripsaw Launcher. 

As soon as you land on the site, rush into the factory and head to the backside room. There you’ll find four Ripsaw Launchers hanged on the factory’s wall. Stand close to it and press equip button for a few seconds to get the weapon.

Since Ripsaw Launchers have just made their way to Fortnite, obtaining them is not an easy task as many other players will land at the same spot to try out the new weapon. Therefore, be prepared for an early fight in the factory, and the one who wins will get Ripsaw Launcher as a reward.

Before you leave, it’s worth noting that Ripsaw Launcher is not a standard Fortnite weapon. Its firing mechanism may get you confused in the first place. Therefore, you should note a few points before taking it out on the battlefield.

Upon pulling Ripsaw Launcher’s trigger, the firearm will shoot a blade that gradually shreds through walls, revealing enemies hiding inside the building. The effect lasts for 10 seconds when the launcher is fully charged.

Here are the stats of Ripsaw Launcher in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3:
