Who are the Season 6 Fortnite bosses? Welcome to Chapter 2 Season 6 – after the Zero Point was contained, reality collapsed, and now the Fortnite island is overrun with wild beasts. Fortnite’s gone primal, and you’ll have to learn how to navigate the wilderness if you want a chance at victory.
As expected, there’s a bunch of changes this season, including the addition of Fortnite animals that you can hunt and tame, and all sorts of Fortnite new guns that you can upgrade by crafting from the scraps that you can scavenge. If you’re looking for a full Fortnite crafting guide, we’ve got you covered. There’s also a refreshed Fortnite map, featuring a bunch of brand new bosses to face down in return for powerful loot, including the Spire Jumpboots – read on to find out how to get them.
So to prepare for your first excursions into Fortnite Season 6, you need to know all about the biggest and baddest NPCs out there on the Island, where to find them, and what they drop. Here’s everything you need to know about the Fortnite Season 6 bosses: the Spire Guardian and the Spire Assassin.
Fortnite Spire Guardians
Spire Guardians guard the metal spiral towers that are dotted around the map. There’s one at each of the five towers; like the Spire Assassin, they can teleport around to get to you if you try and run away. They typically drop Epic weapons, but also drop a mystical metal ball, which glows with mysterious light. Once you pick it up, the beam of light points towards the centre of the map, so you need to carry the ball all the way there in your hands – it won’t go in your inventory, so you’ll drop it if you switch to a weapon or your glider.
It’s worth the effort of lugging it to the Spire, though – when you insert the metal ball into the shrine there, you receive a shiny pair of Spire Jumpboots. To use the Spire Jumpboots; jump twice to activate the no-fall-damage effect, then jump again to leap into the air and redeploy your glider. They don’t need to be in your active slot to work, so you can hop around to your heart’s content.
fortnite Spire Assassin
The Spire Assassin is found in the Spire. Her shotgun is incredibly strong, and she can teleport back and forth through walls, as well as actively mine the area around her just to get to you. Once defeated, she drops a Mythic weapon called Spire Assassin’s Primal Shotgun, which shoots twice in quick succession, as well as a ton of Fortnite gold bars and other useful items. She doesn’t drop a metal ball, however.
Those are all the Fortnite bosses we’ve found in Season 6 – we’ll let you know if any more turn up in the battle royale game.
