The latest Fortnite update is bringing some new weapons to the island, and gamers are excited to test their skills. Recently added in-game, the Golden Scar Assault Rifle and Marksman Six Shooter are making waves, and now there’s a new Primal AR.
Live now as part of the v16.40 update, the Sprie Guardian’s Primal Assault Rifle is available in the Battle Royale mode. So here’s a simple guide to get your hands on the new Primal AR, as well as stats, and the location of the Spire Guardian NPC.
How to get Fortnite Spire Guardian’s Primal Assault Rifle
Here are simple steps to get to the correct location and purchase the Spire Guardian’s Primal Assault Rifle.
- Travel to ‘The Spire’ location on the map
- Find the Spire Guardian
- Defeat the Spire Guardian (easier with upgraded or special weapons)
- Pick up the dropped Spire Guardian’s Primal Assault Rifle
It’s that simple, and it won’t cost you anything but potentially health. A safer way to do this is to start shooting the Spire Guardian from longer ranges with Bows and other long-range weapons.

Dead-centre in the middle of the map, The Spire is hard to miss. It features a massive tower, visible from great distances.
