How To Get Boom’s Sniper Rifle In Fortnite Season 5

Boom’s Exotic Sniper Rifle can be obtained from Splode, an NPC located in or around a measly shack found on an island north-east of Stealthy Stronghold. This island is pretty barren and not many people land there due to its lack of supplies. However, Splode’s presence makes the small island a lot more interesting. Sadly, nothing Splode offers is free and will come at a steep price that players may not want to pay. Before heading to Splode’s island, players will want to have collected a hearty amount of gold bars.

While Boom’s Exotic Sniper Rifle is a coveted weapon to have, it comes at a price. Players will have to pay Splode 1,225 gold bars in exchange for the exotic rifle, and no, they can’t duel him for it. Some NPCs allow players to fight them in exchange for a legendary or epic weapon, but all exotic weapons have to be bought with cold hard cash. Luckily, the amount of gold a player has accumulates from round to round, but over a grand in gold is still a steep price to pay. Regardless, visiting Splode’s shabby little shack is the only way to get Boom’s Sniper Rifle.
