Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4 has a few tricks you may yet discover, including ways to get specific Mythic-rarity weapons! The Prime Shotgun is a favourite for many players to use in Fortnite, and there is a special way to guarantee a Mythic rarity version. Find out here how to get a guaranteed mythic Prime Shotgun in Fortnite.
How to Get a Mythic Prime Shotgun Easily
The only way to get a mythic rarity weapon in Fortnite right now is to nurture a Reality Sapling until it produces a Mythic Fruit. Players cannot use Upgrade Benches upgrade a Legendary weapon any further so this is the only option. A Mythic weapon can be gained by weeding the Reality Sapling and by picking its fruit as it grows.
To make sure you gain a Mythic rarity Prime Shotgun you must plant your Reality Seed in the Reality Biome- this is the area where the Reality Tree is situated. As long as you plant in this area, your Reality Sapling will eventually produce a Prime Shotgun.
Getting to the Mythic stage takes some time. You must nurture your Reality Sapling by weeding around the bottom, and picking its fruits. Weeding is required at least once every real-world 24 hours. Each weeding upgrades the sapling, and the fruits it grows. It also produces Slurp Mushrooms to consume for extra health or shield.
Picking the Mythic Fruit grown in the Reality biome will give you one Mythic Prime Shotgun, ammo, and healing items such as Med Spray and Shields, or Chug Splash. Once you have picked your Mythic fruit, the Reality Sapling will be destroyed and have to be replanted. To keep growing Mythic Prime Shotguns, plant the Reality Seed in the Reality Biome once again.
