How to get Hades’ whip in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2

If you’ve dared to face off against Hades in Fortnite Chapter five, season two, you’ve likely encountered his formidable whip. But if you’ve defeated him and found no trace of his whip, you may wonder how to obtain the Chains of Hades.

The Chains of Hades, as it’s officially known, is a potent weapon capable of dealing significant damage and pulling opponents from a considerable distance. Currently, it appears exclusive to Hades himself. However, is there hope for Fortnite players aspiring to wield this Underworldly weapon?

How to obtain the Chains of Hades in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2

You will eventually have the opportunity to acquire the Chains of Hades in Fortnite Chapter Five, season two, but not immediately. In the Fortnite Team’s news blog outlining the features of Chapter Five, season two, the Chains of Hades is mentioned as a forthcoming addition:

“Yet another Olympian Power is coming your way — the Chains of Hades will pull you in later this Season…”

While the Wings of Icarus and Thunderbolt of Zeus are available from Week 0, you’ll have to wait a bit longer before obtaining the Chains of Hades.

Presumably, once introduced, the Chains of Hades may be obtained by defeating Hades himself in The Underworld. However, for now, he drops a Mythic firearm, which is valuable but lacks the allure of a demonic whip.

Expected Arrival of the Chains of Hades in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2

Regarding the exact release date of the Chains of Hades in Fortnite Chapter Five, season two, all information currently indicates it will arrive “later this Season.” While Epic Games is unlikely to announce a specific launch date for Hades’ whip, reliable leakers such as @ShiinaBr and @iFireMonkey may provide advanced notice.

Given the delayed launch of Fortnite Chapter Five, season 2, expectations for an imminent release should be tempered. While the exact circumstances at Epic Games remain unknown, it’s likely that ongoing issues with this season are prompting frantic adjustments to plans and schedules. Although briefly available in Team Rumble via Supply Drops, the Chains of Hades has since been removed.
