The POI is on the eastern part of the Fortnite map, and unlike in previous seasons, the new boss will always be in the same room of the castle. That means you won’t have trouble coming across The Herald.

Your strategy

Start the battle by stocking up some high-tier weapons and a lot of ammo, just to be sure of anything. You might as well consider maxing out your shield and packing some healing items.

Sneak in, and throw a grenade, and the boss will be immediately distracted. Go for a few headshots as well, and notice how a pattern grows!

When The Herald releases the two wolves, try your best to defeat them right away, not to lose a chance against her. Next, take your shotguns and SMGs and attack the boss; watch out for her teleportation!

How to Get the Burst Rifle Mythic?

After taking down The Herald, you’ll get the Burst Rifle Mythic. This mighty weapon is the Mythic version of the standard Burst Assault Rifle.
