How to Get Spider-Man's Web Shooters

Just a friendly neighborhood battle royale, Fortnite is adding Spider-Man's iconic Web Shooters as its latest unique item. The Mythic item is a boon to players looking to quickly cover great distances, scale walls, and take evasive action, but finding Peter Parker's handy gadget is a bit more difficult than most would assume.

Marvel Comics' Spider-Man is the featured skin for the first season of Fortnite's Chapter 3, alongside Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's The Foundation, and a handful of original Fortnite creations. While Chapter 3 Season 1 has been live for over a week now, Spider-Man's Web Shooters just became available a couple of days ago.

How to Get Spider-Man's Web Shooters in Fortnite

While Spider-Man's Web Shooters are officially live in Fortnite, players won't find them in any treasure chests. Instead, they can be found inside Spider-Man's Backpack, of which there are roughly 30 of throughout the island. The provided map below gives specific locations where players can find the Web Shooters, having an even dispersment just about everywhere, save for the central area of the island. Spider-Man appears to have placed all of the backpacks himself on walls, so players will want to keep an eye out for suspicious-looking webs on vertical surfaces.

To get Spider-Man's Web Shooters, simply interact with any backpack to open it, which should reveal the new Mythic. The useful new item lets players traverse quickly through the air by shooting most any surface and swinging towards it. Upon the web breaking from the surface, the user jumps in the air and can shoot at another surface. It also allows players to web-surf - able to be towed by a moving vehicle - something fans of Insomniac's Spider-Man titles now want incorporated. Players won't take fall damage when using Spider-Man's Web Shooters either, making the item highly coveted.

Although the addition of Spider-Man as a Fortnite skin has been near-universally well received, some players are complaining about the Spider-Man Emote giving an unfair advantage. Called Neighbourly Hang, the Emote has Peter Parker hang upside down from the ceiling. In certain situations, this allows the user to become completely unseen, allowing them to literally get the drop on opponents. Accusations of the move being "pay-to-win" have alaready been flying around online, but Fortnite developer Epic Games has yet to do anything about it.

The mechanics and physics of Fortnite's version of Spider-Man's Web Shooters have been lauded by the vast majority of fans, and will likely be a mainstay in most players' arsenals for the rest of the season. Skilled players can cover a vast amount of ground in very little time, making things like the Gears of War Delta-One quest much, much easier.

Fortnite is free-to-play on PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
