In Fortnite Chapter 4, you can find Shockwave Hammer on the ground, as it is available in the common loot pool. Moreover, you will also find it in Loot Chests and the newly added, Oathbound Chests that randomly spawn in POIs. 

Other than that, you can also find and defeat The Ageless Champion boss at The Citadel POI to obtain the Shockwave Hammer. 

The Oathbound Chests, in particular, are a great option if you are looking for items added with Fortnite Chapter 4, Season One update.

Therefore, if you want to avoid strolling around and wasting your time finding the Shockwave Hammer, we recommend you look for the Oathbound Chests at:

  • The Citadel
  • Anvil Square
  • Shattered Slabs

On the same note, remember that most players will be looking for the Oathbound Chests at POIs, so either be prepared to engage in battle, jump at a POI that is not a hot drop or jump near the area with yellow trees; they often have the Oathbound Chests.
