Are you wondering where to find and how to use the Mythic Overclocked Pulse Rifle in Fortnite? Chapter 4 Season 2 of Fortnite introduced some brand-new Mythics, like the Overclocked Pulse Rifle. However, Epic Games left it up to the community to figure out how to get this death-dealing rifle.

If you haven't figured it out yet, this guide will detail where to find and how to use the Mythic Overclocked Pulse Rifle in Fortnite.

Unlike the majority of Mythics in Fortnite, you don't get the Mythic Overclocked Pulse Rifle by defeating a Boss or opening a Vault. Instead, the only way to get this high-powered Mythic is to claim the Fortnite Capture Point on Loot Island.

It's not that simple, though. Loot Island isn't a static Point of Interest like most players are familiar with. Instead, Loot Island will come bursting out of a Rift midway through the match.

On top of that, when Loot Island finally shows itself, the spot it pops up at is completely random, so you can't exactly prepare to lay your claim on Loot Island.

To get the Mythic Overclocked Pulse Rifle in Fortnite, you will have to survive through the early stages of a match and keep an eye out for a Rift in the sky that spawns Loot Island.

As soon as you see it, hightail it over and try to be the first to ascend onto the floating rock.

When the time comes, claim the Capture Point on Loot Island for the chance to wield this deadly Pulse Rifle variant.

The Mythic Overclocked Pulse Rifle functions like Doctor Slone's Pulse Rifle from Chapter 2 Season 7 - except it's even better. When fired from the hip, the Fortnite Mythic Overclocked Pulse Rifle discharges shots rapidly, almost like an SMG.

However, when you aim down sight, the Overclocked Pulse Rifle pumps out extremely accurate beams that deal 57 damage each to the body with a 1.5x Critical Hit Damage multiplier.

To achieve the Mythic Overclocked Pulse Rifle's maximum DPS, you should prioritise firing from the hip. But, if you need to take an enemy out at distance, this brand-new Pulse Rifle is more than serviceable, thanks to the fact that it's hitscan and has First-Shot Accuracy.

In its current state, the Mythic Overclocked Pulse Rifle is probably the best weapon in all of Fortnite. Claim the Capture Point on Loot Island to net this gun and decimate your opponents.
