Fortnite Season 6 brought a couple of Mythic items back to the game. One of those is the Spiral Assassin’s Primal Shotgun. Here’s how to get it.
UPDATE 4/13: The Fortnite v16.20 patch has replaced the Spire Assassin’s Primal Shotgun with the Spire Assassin’s Junk Gun.
Epic Games made a ton of changes in Fortnite Season 6. They significantly shook-up the weapon meta, added a new crafting system, changed the map, and a lot more that players are still exploring this week.
One of the new weapons that were added in Season 6 was the Primal Shotgun. This new shotgun replaced the Tac from previous seasons but works more like a two-shot Drum Shotgun than a Tac.
Some players don’t know that you can get a Mythic version of this weapon. Here’s how.
Mythic Spire Assassin’s Primal Shotgun
Guardians are located at each of the spires around the map. All of them carry Primal weapons and are extremely dangerous if you don’t have the weaponry or shields to eliminate them.
Only one of these Guardians carries the Spire Assassin’s Primal Shotgun, however, and they can be found at The Spire in the center of the map.
The Spire Assassin patrols this area, carrying the Spire Assassin’s Primal Shotgun. She can spawn anywhere in this location, so keep your head on a swivel if you land here.
To get the Spire Assassin’s Primal Shotgun, you’ll need to:
- Land at The Spire
- Fend off enemy players
- Eliminate the Spire Assassin
- Pick up the Spire Assassin’s Primal Shotgun
The Spire is a hot drop – as the center of the map always has been – so this is going to be a contested area for the length of Season 6. This is also the location of the Mythic Jumpboots, but you have to do a bit more work to get them.
So far, the Spire Assassin’s Primal Shotgun is one of only two Mythic items in Fortnite. We’ll keep you posted if Epic decide to add more to the game.
