Strategy Guide

Calculated - Emote - Fortnite.png
The risk was calculated... but man am I bad at math.
This section outlines a strategy. Feel free to add tips, tricks and general advice about the topic.

  • The Night Hawk is useful for longer ranges or in the storm, as its thermal view allows players to see through areas with thick fog.
  • Due to its thermal scope, the weapon is useful against invisible enemies, such as Predator, or those using his cloaking device.
  • In final circles, it can be used to spot any enemies camping or peeking around corners without risking much, as the high damage per shot can send enemies back to heal.

Chapter 3: Season 3


  • The Night Hawk is visually very similar to the standard Scoped Revolver, but it has a black matte finish, as opposed to a silver finish like the original one.
  • The Night Hawk uses the same Thermal effect as the Thermal Fish, unlike the Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle which uses a Blue and Orange filter.
  • Upon release, if you knocked or eliminated another player with The Night Hawk, it would display a string of seemingly random characters across the elimination feed. This also occurred with the Shadow Tracker, but both issues were patched.
