The Mandalorian’s Amban Sniper Rifle is a Mythic Weapon in Fortnite Season 5. It not only deals a lot of damage, but also allows players to teleport.
One of the more exciting crossover characters to join the best hunters across all realities in Fortnite Season 5 was The Mandalorian. The protagonist of the hit Disney+ series of the same name arrived to the Fortnite island as an NPC and the starter Battle Pass skin. Unlike the other quest-giving NPCs in Season 5, Mando is one of several bosses players must battle this season. Players who manage to defeat him during a match can pick up his Mythic Weapons, the Amban Sniper Rifle, and Jetpack. The Amban Rifle is a single-shot, long-ranged weapon that can be scoped or used in melee combat and deals 110 damage with fairly minimal knockback.
The Amban Rifle is obviously an effective weapon. However, players may be excited to learn it has a hidden melee ability. When this ability is activated, a thrusting stab will propel the player character forward a few feet. This is similar to the effect of the crystals around Zero Point, the central point on the Season 5 map. Players will find this ability especially useful in box fights and close-range combat. Here’s how to teleport using the Amban Sniper Rifle in Fortnite Season 5.
How To Teleport Using The Mandalorian’s Amban Sniper Rifle In Fortnite Season 5
Players will first need to find the Razor Crest, which will in turn allow them to find The Mandalorian. They will need to eliminate him first to access the Jetpack and the Rifle.
When the Amban Sniper Rifle is used as a melee weapon, it can deal 45 damage. Players will need to be using its melee capabilities to be able to teleport.
The jump players make when teleporting with the Amban Rifle is not especially powerful. The crystals at Zero Point offer more thrust to propel a player around. However, players can use this ability to get a little movement and surprise unwitting opponents. It can also be used in contained spaces, leveraging Fortnite‘s build system to withstand even the most advanced box fighters.
Many of the best Fortnite players are able to build, edit, and destroy ramps and walls while still fighting opponents. Most structures also have health, and when a wall or ramp is low enough to be one-shot, game players can use the Amban Rifle’s melee ability through the structure. This will teleport them to the other end of the box, behind any opponents. If the player is quick enough to grab a shotgun immediately after teleporting, they can quickly deliver a headshot that may down their opponent before the opponent sees them. Players who have the Rifle should attempt to lure opponents into one of these box fights to have an even better chance at claiming a victory royale.
The Amban Sniper Rifle doesn’t have a long cooldown time, and there is no consequence to using the teleport abilities that might render the weapon unusable for a short time. It is one of the more powerful weapons available in Fortnite, and players should definitely try using it at least a few times.
