How To Defeat Fortnite’s Storm King

by Kegan Mooney

The latest update to Fortnite has brought us the Storm King. This ties in nicely with the other Halloween events that you’ll see across the game.

The Fornite Storm King is only around for a limited time. You’ll play in a 16-player group where it’s essential to work together. This is already a challenge as I’ve found it VERY hard to collaborate with pick up groups on Fortnite.

Fortnite’s Storm King Weak Spots

The Storm King has several weak spots that pop up during the fight. These weak spots can be identified by the gold areas on his body.

As you target the Storm King’s weak spots, you’ll see the damage your group is doing. Once 3 blocks of the weak spots are knocked off, you’ll need to take on the Storm King’s horns.

One of the Fortnitemares challenge is to reach a total of 10,000 damage. Striking the Storm King down will ensure this challenge is achieved.

The Storm King’s Horns

Next up are the Storm King’s horns. You’ll need to deal enough damage in a short space of time to defeat the horns. If the horn is not taken down within the short time frame, the weak spots will regenerate.

Once the Storm King’s horns are defeated, more weak spots will appear. You’ll know that you’ve progressed in the fight when he starts launching bombs into the arena.
