Overclocked Pulse Rifle Fortnite

If you’ve been playing Battle Royale matches in Fortnite during Chapter 4 Season 2, then chances are that you’ve been eviscerated by the Overclocked Pulse Rifle. The weapon can melt enemies at full health within the blink of an eye, and it’s not surprising to see it appear at the final circle.

However, if you don’t know where to look, you’ll never find the weapon for yourself. Of course, you can always try to kill an enemy that has it, but good luck with that. Regardless of your methods in Fortnite, obtaining the Pulse Rifle will be a challenge, and we’re here to help you out.

Fortnite – How to Get the Overclocked Pulse Rifle

There is only one way to find this Mythic weapon on the map in each match, and it makes it even more competitive for those who want the weapon. It’s tied to the Floating Loot Island, which was introduced in Chapter 4 Season 2, and this is one of the few objectives that spawn as the match progresses. Floating Loot Islands typically appear around the fourth circle in the game.

Locations of the loot islands are always random in Fortnite, and when they appear, a rifle symbol will appear on your screen. Soon after, the island will materialize in the sky and you can see the distance from yourself. Make your way to the island and use a zip line or a rift to reach the top of the island where the Overclocked Pulse Rifle is waiting.

You’ll find a capture point on the island, which is the white circle with the flag in the center. These are objectives you can find at multiple POIs and will reward you with loot if you can claim the point. Claiming the Floating Loot Island point will reward you with the Overclocked Pulse Rifle in Fortnite. Just get ready to face off against other hungry players who want the weapon as well.
