Where to find Bender & how to get Bender’s Shiny Metal Raygun in Fortnite
Futurama is in Fortnite, and so is Bender and Bender's Shiny Metal Raygun. Bender brought a new Mythic to Fortnite from the Planet Express, but it'll only be available for a little bit. So, let's review where to find Bender and how to get Bender’s Shiny Metal Raygun in Fortnite
How to get Bender’s Shiny Metal Raygun in Fortnite
Only available in the game until v25.30, you can find Bender’s Shiny Metal Raygun as Floor Loot all across the Island. Though, since it's of Mythic rarity, stumbling upon this new weapon will require a chunk of luck. Of course, you can also get Bender’s Shiny Metal Raygun by eliminating and looting an enemy player that's wielding it.
The easiest way to get Bender’s Shiny Metal Raygun in Fortnite is to purchase it from Bender outright. Bender stocks five replicas of his Shiny Metal Raygun and sells the Mythic for 600 Gold Bars.

Fortnite Bender’s Shiny Metal Raygun: Functionality
Bender's Shiny Metal Raygun functions similarly to the Kymera Ray Gun available in Chapter 2. It fires off a continuous beam of white-hot plasma with 100% hitscan accuracy. Bender’s Shiny Metal Raygun deals moderate damage, but its accuracy and lack of significant damage falloff make it a solid option for mid to long-range engagements.
Ammo is not an issue with Bender’s Shiny Metal Raygun, but it can overheat. The overheating mechanic, combined with the fact that Bender’s Shiny Metal Raygun deals reduced damage to builds, makes this weapon rather underwhelming in regular Battle Royale. However, Bender’s Shiny Metal Raygun excels in Zero Build.

Where to find Bender in Fortnite
Bender patrols the centre pier in the southwest corner of MEGA City by the water. Before you venture out to find Bender, know that Bender is a hireable Character. For 200 Gold Bars, Bender will drop everything and follow you in your quest to secure a Victory Royale.
Since other players can hire Bender too, you might not find him in MEGA City if you get there late. If you want to purchase Bender’s Shiny Metal Raygun from Bender, you should probably make it a priority immediately after dropping out of the Battle Bus.
