According to Fortnite‘s v24.10 blog post, the Thunder Spears will be “retrievable from the ground, Chests, and Scout Regiment Footlockers.” Players should look for them in places that have the highest chance of Loot Spawning.

These are interesting new weapons as part of the AoT event, having been used against the Armored Titan in the manga and anime. It will serve similar purposes on the island, being used by players to take down armored buildings and any opponents foolish enough to get in the way. It’s unclear how long they’ll be in the game, so players should test them out for themselves.

As part of the Week Five quests, players will likely need to use new items like the Thunder Spears to fight off enemies. These quests will reward extra AoT cosmetics and experience toward more battle pass levels.
