Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2: Where to find Sideways Weapons

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 Sideways Weapons

Sideways Weapons are back in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 and here’s where and how you can find them on the island.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 got its fourth big update recently in the form of Fortnite Update 20.40 and there are a lot of new and old things for players to experience and dive into. One of the things Epic Games has brought back with the update is the Sideways Weapons, like the Sideways Rifle and the Sideways Minigun.

There’s even the Sideways Showdown Week that has challenges asking you to find Sideways Weapons. You will also need to upgrade them for a separate challenge. These weapons first appeared in Chapter 2 Season 8 when Cube Queen and her army were planning to control the island.

With these weapons now returning in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2, many are wondering how to get them. Thankfully we have got you covered.

In this article, we will explain where you can find Sideways Weapons in Chapter 3 Season 2.


Where to find Sideways Weapons

Back in Chapter 2 Season 8, the sideways weapons required cube pieces to upgrade; however, this time around these can be upgraded via a simple upgrade bench. 

As of writing, none of the Fortnite NPCs are selling the weapons themselves, and chances are they won’t be selling any, as the event itself is just a week long. 

With that said, you can find the Sideways Weapons in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 in regular Chests and on the ground as floor loot, i.e. these can be found lying on the ground or from chests or supply drops in certain rarities. 

Blue rarities seem to be the base rarity for the Sideways Weapons, with the highest rarity being Gold or Legendary. You will be able to discover Sideways Weapons in POIs like Tilted Towers and Greasy Grove, as well as the new Collision POI. Apart from that, you can even get one from the corpse of another player that you killed. 


How to upgrade Sideways Weapons in Fortnite

Earlier, Sideways Weapons could be easily upgraded by using Cube Monster Parts. However, since Cube Monster Parts aren’t available in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2, you can upgrade your Sideways Weapons by visiting one of the Upgrade Benches sprinkled around the island.
