Spider-Man’s web shooter Fortnite Chapter 3 has arrived, and they offer one of the best ways to move around the map, avoid firepower, or even fool around a few dozen feet in the air.
Spider-Man’s web shooters are also a new legendary item, so they’re a little harder to find. Lucky for you, we’ve done all the web sledding and shooting for you to figure out the best places to find a web shooter.
We’ve spent enough time with web sliders to get a good sense of how to use them in battle and while traveling around the map.
Web Shooter Locations in Fortnite: Where to Find Spider-Man Backpacks
Spider-Man web sliders can be found in backpacks carried by the web-slinger himself. If you’ve ever played Marvel’s Spider-Man on PS4/PS5, you’ll remember that Peter Parker hid a ridiculous amount of backpacks around New York City (the in-universe reasoning that he had “a year’s supply of backpacks”). “Which is stupid enough to tell the truth), and collectibles hidden inside. In Fortnite, he has stored web-sliders with some random, basic prey, such as weapons, ammunition, or building materials.
This is how you look in nature.
Note that web shooters have a spawn rate of 90% from these backpacks and there are two versions: one with unlimited shots and one with only 80 shots in total.

How to use Spider-Man’s web shooters in Fortnite
Spider-Man’s web shooter is easily one of the most interesting things added to Fortnite over the years. Not only do they open up a wealth of wide possibilities, they’re also absurdly fun to use – even more so than the witch broom from Fortnitemares.
As we mentioned above, there are two versions of Web Shooter: one with infinite ammunition types and one with only 80 shots.
When you equip web shooters, you’ll see a crosshair in the center of your four-section screen.
Aim at any solid object (including animals and vehicles) to unlock them and you’ll automatically be propelled to swing, much like in the PS4 Spider-Man game.
As long as you continue to land the web shots on the object, you will more or less keep swinging. It’s only when you hit the ground (usually because you end up in a flat piece of ground with no good stuff) that your recharging rod starts to refill. If you shot a few nets, wait about five seconds to fully recharge. Fewer shots equals less recharge time.
Fortunately, landing on the ground after a web swing doesn’t hurt. If that were the case, you would be even more lethal than the spiders crawling in my shower.
