New dual pistols have been added to Fortnite in the form of the Hop Rock Dualies, a pair of guns that offer the user a defense against fall damage when used in the right way.
The Hop Rock Dualies are an Exotic weapon, and as such can only be purchased with gold bars from an NPC in the game world.
This is complicated further by the fact that the NPC in question doesn’t actually spawn in every match – although his location is thankfully static, meaning he’ll always be in one of the same two places when he does show up.
How to get the Hop Rock dual pistols in Fortnite
Sometimes, Cole will spawn a little to the North of Retail Row, which at other times, he’ll spawn by the coast to the South-East of Catty Corner, at an area that some players call Shipwreck Cove (this is not its official name).
If Cole doesn’t appear in one of these locations, it may be worth either waiting for the next match, or trying to make it to the other location, as they’re not too far apart from one another.
What do the Hop Rock Dualies do in Fortnite?
The Hop Rock Dualies come with a unique ability that’s not been found on any other dual pistol weapons in Fortnite. Shooting the gun will allow the player to hop in the air three times.
This is useful for clearing distance quickly, as well as keeping the player moving so they can’t be picked off by enemy ranged weapons.
Perhaps the dual pistol’s most useful feature, though, allows the player to avoid Fortnite’s dreaded fall damage. Shooting the gun while falling will allow the player to hop once upon impact on the ground without getting hurt. This alone makes the Hop Rock Dualies a very useful item in the right hands.
