The Spider-Man: Across the Spiderverse event has hit Fortnite, so here’s how to find and use the Spider-Man Web Shooters.

Fortnite loves to introduce thematic items for players to wield during tie-in events with other IPs. The new Across the Spiderverse event is no exception to this. This tie-in event with the new animated movie has unvaulted a Mythic item from Fortnite’s past, the Web Shooters. Here’s how to find and use the Spider-Man Web Shooters in Fortnite.

Where to find Web Shooters in Fortnite

There are only two options for acquiring Web Shooters in Fortnite. These are purchasing them from Gwen Stacy/Ghost Spider in Slappy Shores or finding them. Unlike many other tie-in items, there are no special loot boxes or specific spawn locations for loose versions. Gwen Stacy can be found on the rooftop of the apartment buildest on the east side of Slappy Shores, north of the river. She offers a set for 600 gold, which is no small investment. Unfortunately, this high price is the only one that you can be guaranteed to get it from. Otherwise, you’re best covering lots of ground and hoping for the best. The third option is to eliminate a player who has already acquired the item, though you’ll be left with less ammo.

The new Spider-Man items function almost identically to how they did last time. When equipped, the player can hold the fire button to attach a web to a nearby surface. Inputting directional movement commands will swing the player around the point they’re attached to. Releasing the fire key will send the player flipping through the air in the direction they were heading as they released the swing.

This is a key mobility item, to be added to the likes of the Kinetic Blade, ODM Gear, and Lightsabers.
