Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4 is in full swing, and Epic Games added a new long ranged weapon to the game with the v22.10 update. The Cobra DMR is now available in the game, and it replaces the old DMR from the loot pool. Naturally, players are wondering where to find this weapon. Snipers in Season 4 deal much more damage than before, and the Cobra DMR is quickly becoming a popular long-range weapon. Here's where to find and how to use the Cobra DMR in Fortnite.
Where to find the Cobra DMR in Fortnite?
The Cobra DMR can be found in Chests, Supply Drops, fishing, Loot Sharks, and by harvesting Reality Sapling Fruit. This weapon is also available in ground loot, making it easy to find across any of the POIs in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4. The scope on the Cobra DMR is a little bigger than the Burst Assault Rifle and the MK-Seven Assault Rifle. This weapon's accuracy, fire rate, and reload time make it one of the best long-range rifles in Fortnite.
How to use the Cobra DMR in Fortnite
The Cobra DMR has a scope, allowing players to zoom in while aiming down sights. Scoped weapons have always performed brilliantly in Fortnite, and the Cobra DMR is currently one of the best weapons in Chapter 3 Season 4. It has a high fire rate, making the weapon much more versatile than the regular DMR. Similarly, the gun's easy-to-control recoil pattern makes the weapon more stable over long ranges. Players will find the Cobra DMR from Common to Mythic rarity. We recommend searching Vaults to find higher rarities of this weapon.
While this weapon isn't meant to take fights at close range, you can easily get a few kills with the Cobra DMR in close-quarters combat with proper crosshair placement. The Cobra DMR uses Heavy Ammo, and the common variant deals 59 headshot damage and 36 body shot damage. The weapon has 20 bullets per clip with 3.85 seconds reload time. We recommend using this weapon from a proper vantage point, where you can spot and engage enemies from long range. Since it has a scope, players may often get tunnel-visioned, so you need to keep an eye out for enemies approaching from behind.
