There’s no escaping now

One of the most meta-changing weapons is now available in Fortnite. While pistols may not be a useful weapon category, this latest addition is among the best handguns in Fortnite history. The Lock On Smart Pistol is a powerful sidearm that has a unique new feature.

Fortnite Lock On Smart Pistol, explained

The Lock On Smart Pistol is capable of locking directly onto a target. When this happens, every shot you fire off will automatically fly toward any person or potential vehicle within your view. In other words, players don’t have to worry about their accuracy.

The player has a huge circle reticle when equipping this pistol. The goal is to aim down the sights while an enemy is in the circle until they are locked on. Firing the weapon at this point will cause four bullets to automatically chase after the opponent, no matter where they go.

The general purpose behind the Fortnite Lock On Smart Pistol is likely as the go-to vehicle weapon. You can fire at enemies while driving certain vehicles like cars and motorcycles. Firing and driving simultaneously is normally quite difficult, but this pistol makes the task much easier.

Since it only fires four bullets each time, the Lock On Pistol doesn’t do a ton of damage. This keeps its overpowered automatic aiming in check.

How to get the Lock On Smart Pistol

As for how you’ll be able to find the Lock On Smart Pistol, it works the same as most other handguns in the game. It is a decently common weapon, so players only need to look on the ground, in treasure chests, as drops from other players, and from supply drops.

It is relatively easy to find this weapon, likely to help players in the vehicle-heavy Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2.
