Fortnite Season 5 is rolling along just fine, but one of the latest updates has thrown a wrench into players' strategies for getting one of the best weapons in the game. Mave, the Amazonian warrior in this season's battle pass, is also an NPC on the map who will sell you the Storm Scout rifle for a cool 500 gold bars, which lets you preview where the next storm circle will be. Trouble is, she's changed locations.

As any player knows, the Season 5 map is immense, which makes searching for Mave a giant pain. Thankfully, we've done the hard work for you and found Mave, so you can locate her and get back to eliminating other players as quickly as possible.

Here's where to find Mave and the Storm Scout rifle.

You'll find Mave in the southeast corner of the map, on the cliff above the shipwreck area. She'll probably be hanging around another unrelated NPC, outside of the log cabin and closer to the strange Amazonian rock altar.
