Players can now harness the power of Venom and Cargange thanks to the new Mythic Symbiote weapons.
UPDATE: Epic Games removed the Venom and Carnage Mythic Weapons as of October 14th.
Fortnite and Marvel have done a large number of collaborations over the past few years. From an entirely Marvel-themed season to the scattered superhero skins, there is a lot of Marvel content in Fortnite.
And that’s already the case, once again, for Fortnite Season 8. Carnage was revealed early on as the tier 100 Battle Pass skin for this season. However, Venom would also be returning in the form of a symbiotic weapon.
Players can harness the power of both Venom and Carnage in Fortnite thanks to the new Mythic Symbiotic weapons. Here’s how to get them.
Where to find Carnage and Venom Mythic weapons
In the past, Mythic weapons were obtained by defeating their respective bosses. This was the case during the Marvel-themed season where players had to defeat Dr. Doom, Iron Man, and Wolverine to get their powers.
However, that’s not the case for the Carnage and Venom Symbiote Mythic weapons. These two Mythics will appear randomly on the map each round. To make it easier, when they drop, they will be marked on everyone’s map.
The Symbiote Mythic weapons will appear in capsule form. The first player to open the capsule will get the Carnage or Venom Mythic. If that player is eliminated, they will drop the Mythic which can be picked up by another player.
What the Symbiote Mythics do
These Mythic weapons aren’t incredibly overpowered, but they can spice up a round of Fortnite. While the Venom and Carnage Symbiotes may look different, they function the exact same.
They both have three functions. The first is that they allow players to jump higher and negate fall damage. Second, they allow players to glide when jumping from high places. And third, players can unleash a tendril that deals damage to players. However, the tendril arm has a 10-second cooldown.
Venom and Carnage Mythic have left
All good things come to an end, and that’s the case with these Mythic weapons. The Mythic Weapons were set to be removed on October 18th. However, Epic Games removed the Venom and Carnage Mythic Weapons early on October 14th.
This means players can no longer find the symbiotic weapons in-game. They likely won’t return in the future unless Epic and Marvel have another Venom crossover.
So, while they aren’t the most powerful Mythic weapon in the history of Fortnite, the Venom and Carnage Symbiotes are pretty fun. But what are your thoughts on these new weapons? Let us know your thoughts on our FortniteINTEL Twitter page.
