Fortnite constantly vaults and unvaults weapons in the Battle Royale each season, and with the recent update 28.10, they have unvaulted various items. This includes the famous Lock On Pistol and the Anvil Rocket Launcher. The Anvil Launcher is a returning item that was first introduced in Chapter 3, Season 2.
The launcher is a projectile that blows up everything when deployed, causing devastating damage. It can blow up vehicles and entire buildings while killing enemy players nearby. Finding the Anvil Rocket Launcher in Chapter 5, Season 1, is difficult, as few spawn during a match.
Fortnite: How to Find and Use EMP Stealth Camo in Chapter 5, Season 1
Unleash an EMP effect to damage enemy shields and bring their vehicles to a stop with the EMP Stealth Camo; here’s how to find it.
Where to Find the Anvil Launcher Chapter 5, Season 1
A guaranteed way to find the Anvil Rocket Launcher in Chapter 5, Season 1 is to purchase it from Mecha Team Shadow for 250 gold bars. You can find Mecha Team Shadow on the train station located north of Pleasant Pizza. When the bus launches, land on the location marked on the map and look for Mecha Team Shadow immediately. Beware of enemy players dropping in the area looking for the launcher.
Alternatively, players can find the Anvil Rocket Launcher in rare and regular weapon chests across the map. The best option is to check high points of interest, such as Lavish Lair, Grand Glacier, Fencing Fields, and Snoopy Steppes. These regions are among the best landing spots in Chapter 5, Season 1, as they have top-tier weapons of all rarities, including mythic items such as launchers. Drones with rare and epic items also constantly drop in high POIs, which increases the odds of finding an Anvil Launcher.
Some players have also obtained the Anvil Rocket Launcher from fallen opponents since many gamers hunt for this treasured item. Note that the Anvil Rocket Launcher is available in three rarities – rare, epic, and legendary. The higher the rarity you find, the more damage you can deal.
To use the Anvil Rocket Launcher, lock onto an enemy vehicle and fire the rocket. This will blow it up, killing the driver. Currently, the launcher only locks onto vehicles and can’t be used to destroy buildings or enemies walking. The launcher also only works effectively at long distances. If you fire it at a close distance, the rocket will launch into the sky before coming down and causing devastating damage to you. This may significantly reduce your health and even kill you.
