Who is the strongest boss to face in Fortnite Season 2? Take a look at our rankings.

The NPCs in Fortnite Season 2 are not to be trifled with. A plain henchman can snipe you out of the air or laser you as you land, as soon as the exclamation point pops up over their head.

The scariest NPCs in the game are the bosses: TNTina, Midas, Meowscles, Skye, and Brutus. Here are our rankings of the deadliest bosses in Fortnite Season 2.

5. TNTina

The only undebatable position on this list is TNTina and her Boom Bow. The Boom Bow can be a powerful weapon, but we don’t have to worry about the aim-bot boss eliminating us without a chance to react.

TNTina takes a few seconds to respond. I haven’t even gotten shot by her, and haven’t seen a clip of anyone dying to the explosive specialist. She’s comfortable in the five spot.

As a side note, it’s funny to think that the Boom Bow was so powerful that Epic had to nerf it to make it a mythic weapon.

4. Meowscles

Meowscles is a toss-up for three or four. The Heavy AR does a ton of damage and can put you out in a couple of shots, but it’s slow-firing and has a wider spread than the other mythic weapons. You should be able to survive if you have some shields.

Meowscles can easily take you down without breaking a sweat, but he’s often easier to avoid than some of the other bosses. You can usually get a vantage point and shoot Meowscles from above, making him a bit less intimidating than our top three.

3. Skye

Skye and her Scar are incredibly deadly but don’t seem to have the body count nor the big-name kills that Brutus and Midas have. You don’t want to get backed into a corner by Skye, but she won’t shred you as quickly as Midas and Brutus will.

Most of this list relies on the fire rate of these weapons. All of the bosses are deadly accurate, but it’s easier to withstand a barrage from a Scar or Ak than it is from a Drum Gun or Minigun.

2. Liquid Midas

Midas probably has the highest number of kills in Fortnite Chapter 2 – player or NPC. His aim would impress Shroud and his Drum Gun is arguably the best Mythic weapon in the game – especially in the hands of a ‘controlla scrimma’ like Midas.

The newest member of Team Liquid Fortnite could easily be put at number-one on this list, but kill numbers aren’t everything. He might have the deadliest turn-around shot in the game, but the environment holds him back from the one slot.

It’s easier to look get an angle or look for cover in The Agency than it is in The Grotto. There are only a couple of angles at which you can attack Brutus. Midas might have more third-party kills than Brutus, but it’s tough to beat the big guy one-on-one.

1. Brutus

Brutus and Midas were close, here, but Brutus has consistency and level of competition on his side. He has single-handedly ruined tournament rounds for several pro players. He recently killed MrSavage in the FNCS and Chap in the Duo Cash Cup.

Brutus doesn’t have the sheer number of kills that Midas does, but Midas gets to sit at one of the most popular drop spots in Season 2. On top of that, Brutus might be the most intimidating boss to face one-on-one. All of these bosses have enhanced shield, which buys him more than enough time to rev-up his minigun and shred anyone in front of him.

I’d love to see a Midas vs. Brutus 1v1 for the title, but I think Brutus would take it home. That Minigun deals too much damage in such a short time. Midas may have the body count, but Brutus has the placements.

So, there you have it: the Fortnite Intel rankings of the deadliest bosses in Fortnite Season 2. Obviously, this is all an opinion and just a bit of fun. Let us know who you think is the toughest NPC in the comments!

The 5 most hated skins in Fortnite

The Fortnite community is no fan of these skins.

Published

on

Fortnite skins have taken on a life of their own since the game came out. Back in the early days, we couldn’t imagine spending money on a free game. Now, hundreds of dollars later, we’re still padding our lockers as collectors of in-game cosmetics.

Some skins tell a lot about the player wearing them. A Peely? They’re just trying to goof around and have some fun. A Dynamo? Sweat is probably pouring onto their keyboard at all times.

Today, we’re taking a look at the most hated skins in Fortnite – the skins that elicit an immediate reaction from opponents. You better be ready for some backlash if you post a clip while wearing one of these skins.

5. Female Soccer Skins

Female Soccer Skins have been hated ever since they first came out. This might have been the first “sweaty” skin to come to Fortnite, and it remains in the category to this day. However, it’s been made available in the Item Shop quite frequently so everyone from sweats to casuals owns it.

“Soccer skin” means more than just the skin that someone is wearing, at this point. It’s a term that longtime Fortnite players will likely remember for the rest of their gaming careers. However, because of its frequent item shop appearances, it’s last on the list.

4. Custom Superhero Skins

These skins have cause quite a stir with players and have disrupted the competitive scene on more than one occasion. The actual name of these skins is Boundless, and they are among the most customizable skins in the game. Many players bought them for their versatility at first, but they were quickly abused by competitive players.

Players could set their skins to have an all-black or all-white color scheme which would make them harder to see. These color combos were banned from the game, but players still found a way to make their skins harder to see. This lead to these sweaty skins being banned outright in all competitive play.

3. Anime Skins

This category of skins is pretty new since “anime” skins were introduced in Chapter 2 Season 5. A bundle of anime skins was also released during Season 6 which contains some of the sweatiest and most hated Fortnite Skins.

Chigusa, Megumi, and Yuki are part of the Cyber Infiltration bundle, and Lexa was given to players who reached a certain level of the Season 5 Battle Pass. For some reason, players hate these cell-shaded skins and would rather face off against Soccer Skins.

2. Surf Witch

When we asked Twitter which skins they hated the most, a large number of responses included Surf Witch. It seems this skin is hated because it’s used by “sweats” and also because of its lackluster design.

Surf Witch’s design isn’t much different from many of the other female skins. In fact, she has a very similar design to Haze, a preexisting skin. Many players think that Surf Witch is a cheap rip off of Haze, and their hate is derived from their similarities.

1. Dynamo

Dynamo is – by far – the most hated skin in Fortnite, at the moment. If you post a clip while wearing the Dynamo skin, you’re guaranteed to see the bulk of your replies consist of something along the lines of, “Dynamo, ew.”

We’re not exactly sure why Dynamo has its status as the most hated skin in Fortnite. Perhaps, it’s because Dynamo a very sweaty skin that isn’t difficult to get. Unlike Crystal and Aura, a lot of players think Dynamo is, simply, a bad skin on top of the fact that it’s incredibly sweaty.

Whatever the reason, wearing a Dynamo skin puts a target on your back. If you hit the island wearing Dynamo, then you better be as good as the skin suggests you are.

Epic Games

Does this list mean that you shouldn’t be wearing these skins in Fortnite? Absolutely not. In fact, a lot of players like playing the role of an antagonist in all sorts of games. It can be fun. Wear whatever you want – these are just some of the skins that are in the community’s crosshairs at the moment. We’re sure that it will change in the future. Wear what you want and have fun!
