Ride the Lightning is one of the new weapons added in the Fortnite v30.10 update to line up with the Metallica collaboration. It’s a powerful weapon that lets you and your squad dash through the air, covering great distance, before coming crashing down on any enemies who might be beneath you.

It’s not easy to find though, as it only spawns at certain locations, and there’s only one you can find per spawn point. We’ll show you every location where Ride the Lightning spawns in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 so you can get your hands on this awesome weapon.
