Hunting down the Highcard boss in Fortnite
The Highcard boss may be harder to pin down compared to previous bosses that have appeared on the island. Highcard doesn’t spawn in at the beginning of the match, so you can’t land at their location and take them out. You’ll have to wait until the first circle has been revealed and then the boss will wrap in via a portal. They’ll spawn in at any location that has a vault, either at MEGA City, Brutal Bastion, or Shattered Slabs. Although the boss spawns randomly at one of the three points of interest, an icon will appear on your map to show you where the boss is located.
When you approach Highcard, you’ll notice that they’re accompanied by two Henchmen. The boss has health and shield bars, but they don’t have any special abilities for you to worry about. You’ll find success by shooting at Highcard and his guards from afar with an assault rifle or sniper rifle, ensuring you have some cover for when you need to reload. Its worth noting that Highcard won’t shoot at you until you shoot at them first. This gives you the chance to grab all the loot you need and get the perfect positioning to come out on top in the fight.
Once you’ve eliminated the boss, Highcard’s Havoc Supressed Assault Rifle will be dropped, along with a key card that can be used at a vault to get your hands on more powerful loot.
