How to get a Fortnite Ripsaw Launcher

The Fortnite Ripsaw Launcher can primarily be found lying about in the Chop Shop, which is on the northern coast of the island. These buzzsaw blasters will knock back opponents and deal a chunk of damage, but will also shred through vehicles and structures. They’ve also been popping up in challenges, meaning that knowing where to find one in Fortnite is always going to be useful. So if you need to find a Fortnite Ripsaw Launcher – for fun or profit – or need to know how to use this fearsome weapon, we have all the information you need below.

If you want to get around fast, pick up some Fortnite Grapple Gloves and drop in on the enemy. 

The best place to get yourself a Ripsaw Launcher is at the Chop Shop in the frozen northwest area of the Fortnite map. It’s a large red workshop building roughly northeast of Logjam Lotus. Head inside and you’ll find a couple of Ripsaw Launchers lying on the ground. From the ground floor of the main workshop, you can also reach a smaller, gray garage building which has a wall full of extra Ripsaw Launchers.

You also have a small chance of finding a Ripsaw Launcher in the world as they can appear on the ground, in chests, and in supply drops. So you might not have to venture to the Chop Shop to get them, although that is the best option if you absolutely need one for something specific. Do note that the Ripsaw Launcher is not available in any competitive playlists! Wherever you spot one, grab it and get slicing.

The Ripsaw Launcher fires saw blades that will stick into any destructible object and deal constant damage until they break, meaning it can absolutely shred through structures – both player-made and those already on the map. You also need one to complete two weekly Fortnite quests. The first requires you to chop down Fortnite Timber Pines, and the other tasks you with finding giant mushrooms in Fortnite and slicing those up too.

However, this destructive power is balanced by the launcher’s limited ammo capacity as it comes with just 12 sawblades and can hold three at once. To increase the range and velocity of each sawblade, you’ll need to hold down the fire button to rev up the launcher. Revving it up also makes it a Fortnite melee weapon, so you can slice your foes and any builds up close. Overall, it’s not exactly easy to use or something you should whip out mid-shootout, but it might be something to hold onto if you’ve got the inventory space, especially in battle royale modes with building enabled.
