The Predator is the latest enemy added to Fortnite Season 5, and you can battle him to unlock a brand new skin. This boss fight will be extremely difficult, so here’s the best way to get it done quickly.
Epic Games dropped the v15.21 update on Wednesday, January 20, and this brought some brand new content to Fortnite Season 5. This includes The Predator, who is available as a Boss character for you to battle.
Defeating him is one of the Jungle Hunter Quests in the Battle Pass, and completing that will unlock the Predator skin. Killing this alien hunter is no easy task since he’s a powerful foe, so here are some tips to keep in mind.
Where to find Predator in Fortnite Season 5
If you want to challenge The Predator then you’ll have to visit Stealthy Stronghold, which is located on the north part of the map. Once you’re there, you should head towards the forest on the left-hand side of the POI.
Unfortunately, the hunter doesn’t remain in the same place, so you’ll have to explore the forest a bit before you come across him. The best spot to look at is the location of his crashed ship, which we’ve marked on the map below.
How to kill Predator in Fortnite
If you’ve seen the 1987 Arnold Schwarzenegger classic, then you’ll know why The Predator is so difficult to defeat. He comes with unmatched agility that lets him dart between the trees and surroundings quickly.
You’ll also face some difficulties due to the enemy’s Cloaking Device that allows him to completely camouflage himself. This means that you’ll have an even harder time tracking his movements until he appears right next to you.
Another obstacle comes in the form of the players that you’ll be competing against to complete this quest and unlock the skin. However, you can use this to your advantage by letting them do half of the work for you.
Here’s the best way to defeat The Predator in Fortnite:
- Jump from the Battle Bus and land in Stealthy Stronghold.
- Collect the best weapons you can find.
- Head to the Predator’s location on the left-hand side of the POI.
- Watch the other players damage the alien from a distance.
- Once he’s been weakened, kill him with close-range and medium-distance weapons.
That sums up everything you need to do in order to defeat The Predator. Just hang back, and watch the other players chip away at his health from a distance until your opportunity opens up to land the final blows.
You can make things even easier on yourself by getting help from your friends, so drop into Stealthy Stronghold as part of a Trio or Squad. Once the enemy has been dealt with, you can loot the Cloaking Device from his body.
In addition to the cloak, you will also unlock The Predator skin that you’ll need to wear to tackle the other Jungle Hunter Quests. It looks extremely cool, and you’d better get your hands on it as soon as you can.
