Looking to get your hands on the new mythic weapons in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2? Here’s where to find them.
The recent introduction of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 brought a whole bunch of interesting changes to the game. As well as new Fortnite items, locations and more, we also saw bosses being brought in to mix things up. This raised the question of what rewards would be granted to players if they manage to defeat them. The good news is, that it isn’t just loot that will be coming your way, but there will also be mythic weapons to be unlocked. In order to do so, you will have to locate the bosses and overcome them to gain these weapons. Here is a short guide on what’s new, and where you can find these Fortnite locations.
New Areas, New Bosses
The Fortnite chapter 2 map comes with five new locations for you to explore. Each of these areas will have a boss for you to face. After doing so, you will not only gain access to secret vaults, but will also gain a mythic weapon which differs depending on the boss that you have defeated. By taking out these guardians, again depending on who you defeat, you will also be completing specific challenges as a bonus. Even if hunting down the mythic weapons isn’t your thing, it is still worth doing so for this reason.
The update is mainly based on a new agent theme, which brings with it a number of gameplay changes. This new season has certainly gone to great lengths to change the landscape of how the game plays, and there is a more PvE feel to it in certain aspects. This is because of the new areas being patrolled by NPCs, who will be guarding the new weapons and mythic loot. There will also be five mini bosses, which you may have seen already in the form of skins if you have the Battle Pass.
There are five total bosses; Brutus, Meowsicles, Skye, TNTina and Midas. Each will be found at different locations on the map, and here is where you can find them.
If you are looking for a mythic minigun, then Brutus should be your first stop. Located at the Grotto, this new location can be found by the agency facility. If you head north from here, then you will come across the Grotto, but beware of the NPC enemies that surround the area. You could always take a stealthy approach here, but one slip and its time for battle, so choose your approach wisely.
Midas, who is rather appropriately name given his lust for all things gold, should be your next port of call. This is because from where Brutus is located, simply head down to the center of the map until you reach the Agency Headquarters. Once you have made your way inside the building, Midas can be found in a number of locations. Rather expectedly, he won’t be difficult to miss, as the gold-laden boss has come prepared. There will also be other players, henchmen and other variables standing in your way, but luckily it doesn’t take much fire power to defeat him. Once you have done so, you will pick up the mythic Drum Gun, which is considered to be the best weapon in the game at this moment in time.
Back up to the North side is Skye. More specifically, to the northwest in the top corner of the map you will come across a new location known as the Shark. This will be occupied by the boss known as Skye, who will be ready for battle. Once Skye is done with, you will be rewarded with the Scar Assault Rifle, which is a popular choice amongst Fortnite players at the minute.
Ah, Meowscles. This is one of the more divisive bosses that Epic Games has decided to introduce. In my opinion, one of the weirdest concoctions that bosses could offer up in a game such as this, the half-human, half-cat hybrid is something that you are probably going to want to cover in a hail of bullets. Regardless on your feelings about this character, you can find them at the Yacht, surrounded by henchmen in the main area. You will be rewarded with the Peow Peow rifle for your troubles.
If you head over to the new area known as the Rig, you will come across TNTina. This will be an area well occupied with enemies for you to deal with. Once you’ve dealt with them and TNTina herself, you’ll want to head to the top of the rig to claim the Boom Bow.
These are the five bosses that you will need to have beaten in order to get the precious mythic Fortnite items and weapons. They aren’t the only reason to explore these areas, with plentiful loot for the taking and exciting new areas to explore. There is a lot to be getting on with as far as Fortnite chapter 2 season 2 is concerned, as Epic Games looks to keep its ever growing fanbase hooked on the battle royale title.
