Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2: Highcard Boss Guide

Time to fight it out with Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2's new boss.


Each new season of Fortnite generally adds a boss on the map for you to find and take down for some sweet loot, and Chapter 4 Season 2 is continuing that trend as expected. This season's big baddie is Highcard, and we'll tell you how to take him down and what you'll get for doing so.

How to beat Highcard and what you get

Highcard spawns near vaults around the map, such as MEGA City and Brutal Bastion, and he's accompanied by two henchmen in white suits. His location may be randomized each round--we're actively investigating this. Compared to boss battles from previous seasons, Highcard is a relatively easy and straightforward boss--though you'll still want to approach him with full health and shields, as well as plenty of ammo. Take down his henchmen first, then turn your sights on the main man himself to drop him and get some sweet loot. He won't have any fancy attack patterns, so this is just about taking cover and hitting your shots.

When Highcard is defeated, you'll get the chance to pick up Highcard's Havoc Suppressed Assault Rifle he leaves behind. This deadly Mythic weapon is fully automatic and silenced, making it an exceptionally powerful option to add to your arsenal. In addition to dropping his gun, he'll also leave behind a Vault Keycard you can use to open the vault in MEGA City.
