Who are the Season 5 Fortnite bosses? Chapter 2 Season 5 has arrived – time to bid farewell to the Marvel heroes of Season 4; now we’re in a new Fortnite era, where bounty hunters roam a brand new Fortnite map. We’ve seen Star Wars’ The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda show up – and there are plenty more hunters’ skins available to unlock through the new battle pass.
Bosses aren’t the only new faces cropping up throughout the battle royale game – there are also Fortnite bounty NPCs scattered across the battlefield, which you can speak to and acquire bounty contracts from, and exchange Fortnite gold bars for various rewards. These NPCs aren’t bosses, however – so don’t shoot them; it’s quite uncalled for.
So far, we’ve only found two new Fortnite bosses – but there’s sure to be more on the way. Epic announced that the hunter’s we’ve seen so far are “only the first”, and that even more hunters from the ‘realities beyond’ will be on their way “throughout the season” – so stay tuned for more information about upcoming Fortnite bosses. For now, though, here are the bosses we’ve found in Fortnite Season 5:
Mando can be found by the Razor Crest – his famous gunship, which crashed on a hill to the southeast of Colossal Coliseum. It’s on the edge of the desert, to the east of Zero Point the location will unlock the first of the Mandalorian’s Battle Pass skin upgrades – but more importantly, it’ll give you the opportunity to go toe-to-toe with Mando himself.
It’s a formidable challenge – we recommend building over the top of him and hitting him from above, using walls for cover. If you take him out, you’ll get his Mandalorian Jetpack and Amban Sniper Rifle.
Ruckus is at the Hydro 16 dam, east of Slurpy Swamp. He’ll appear as you traverse the outside of the building, and is wielding a big ol’ rocket launcher and a legendary heavy AR. He’s tricky to take out, due to his large health pool and powerful weapons – but these weapons are all yours if you succeed in eliminating him. There’s a lot of cover inside the building he’s patrolling, so it’s worth using this to evade heavy fire from his launcher.
