How to Defeat LEGO Fortnite Brute Boss

To beat the Brute boss in LEGO Fortnite, you’ll need to whittle down its HP bar until it hits zero. As a huge boss and the main enemy we’ve seen in LEGO Fortnite, this is no easy task.

We first learnt about the Brute boss in the LEGO Fortnite cinematic trailer. It shows a range of heroes preparing to fight the Brute with weapons in hand. You’ll need to use swords, bows, axes, and pickaxes to damage the Brute, and more crafted weapons, too.

Given it’s a fairly significant boss fight, there are several stages to it. The fight will be easiest if you dive in with friends, so we recommend squadding up and leveling up as far as possible before attempting to fight the Brute. Also, given it has huge sharp claws, you’re better off keeping things long-range, with bows and crossbows, rather than trying to slash it with a melee weapon.

How to Find LEGO Fortnite Brute Boss

This boss in LEGO Fortnite is found underground, in the more advanced skeleton-infested caves. In the cinematic trailer for the game, we see our roster of heroes heading underground into the cave. After standing in shock at the sheer number of skeletons down there, a hulking claw reaches up. This then emerges as the Brute, roaring at the characters.

Therefore, you’ll spot the boss by heading underground in LEGO Fortnite. You’ll likely have to traverse through caves and dungeons before you stumble across it. You’ll need to defeat a few waves of skeleton enemies before reaching the final boss, as they swarm in all caves. Be prepared for a long battle!
