The Spire Assassin boss in Fortnite is a new AI enemy that you can fight in the game, and it drops the golden Primal Shotgun when defeated. Of course, since this is all new content, players have some questions on how the whole thing works. People are wondering where to find the Spire boss and, perhaps more importantly, how to obtain the Spire Assassin’s mythic shotgun. We’ll be covering both points in our Fortnite Spire Boss Location – How to Get Spire Assassin’s Primal Shotgun guide.
Where to Find Spire Boss Fortnite Location
To find the Spire Boss location in Fortnite, aka the Spire Assassin, there are several locations that you can look in. Obviously, the main place you should visit is The Spire, aka the big ole tower in the middle of the map and the area around it. However, we also found the boss on the small island north of Misty Meadows. We’ve marked both potential locations in the image below, so pick your favorite. If you have a different place where you like to “farm” the assassin, let us know in the comments. Ultimately, it doesn’t matter; one thing that is useful to know is that the Spire Assassin doesn’t necessarily have to always be around the actual Spire area.
How to Get Fortnite Spire Assassin’s Primal Shotgun
To get the Fortnite Spire Assassin’s boss primal shotgun, you have to defeat the assassin after discovering its location. This is easier said than done, of course; she is incredibly fast, and her shotgun packs quite the punch. Make sure to have some healing items in your loadout, and some weapons that you’re comfortable with. Stay on the move, and build walls whenever you need to heal. The assassin will always home in on you, but she does get hung up on walls. By that, I mean, you have to place yourself in such a manner that she has to go through a wall to get to you.
Other than that, we can’t really give you any other advice. Keep moving, fire only when you have the chance, and be patient; don’t rush it if you can help it. After you manage to kill the assassin, she will drop the golden Primal Shotgun, as well as some other stuff. The weapon is incredibly powerful, so have fun!
