Fortnite Challenge Guide: Defeat a Spire Guardian

Fortnite’s season 6, week 12 is here, and, of course, it comes with a new batch of challenges for you to complete. For this week, the challenges are a little more in-depth than previously, but most of the objectives are still easy enough to wrap your head around. One of the more challenging ones requires you to take down a Spire Guardian, which is essentially a mini-boss found around the map. You’ve seen mini-bosses like these before if you’ve played previous seasons.

In this guide, we’ll show you how to find these Spire Guardians and how to prepare to take them out, and we’ll also include tips for the battle itself. Here’s how to defeat a Spire Guardian in Fortnite.

Where to find Spire Guardians

Fortnite.gg

The first step is to actually find the Spire Guardians. These enemies can be found at — wait for it — the Spires. Season 6 once again modified the Fortnite map, and one of the most notable changes was the star-like formation in the center of the map. Each of the six points that branch off from the center has a Spire, and these locations feature a Guardian mini-boss. Reference the map above for more details (thanks, Fortnite.gg).

In general, we advise landing close to a Spire, but not directly next to the Guardians since they will take you out easily if you’re unprepared. Instead, land close, get geared up, and then initiate the fight. The Guardians themselves spawn at the bottom of the Spires, typically, so you should avoid landing on the ground level. If you land right on top of the Spire, you can get a nice vantage point on the Guardian, but depending on the loot that spawns here, you might not be prepared enough to win the fight. That’s why we recommend landing elsewhere so you’re stocked up on gear. Once you’re ready, attack the Guardian.

As for the fight itself, if you take refuge at the top of the Spire while attacking the mini-boss, you’ll have a much easier time. There’s only one way the Guardian can get up to you, so hopefully, you have a shotgun or SMG available if the boss comes up to you. But, ideally, you should be dealing damage with a longer-range weapon from above. Ultimately, what kind of gear you have is down to luck, sadly.

If you don’t have the right weapons for the fight, we don’t recommend taking on the Guardian. So, if all you get is a pistol or a weak SMG, perhaps consider retreating to get better gear. The boss doesn’t have a lot of health but can deal high amounts of damage, so be aware that you might need to pull back if you aren’t geared up. The strategy is to shoot the boss from above, and if you need to, you can jump off the Spire to heal up. You can use the Spire as cover, which is really nice.

Once you take down the boss, you’ll complete the challenge and earn 24,000 XP for your troubles.

Fortnite Challenge Guide: Use Launcher From Guardian Towers

During Fortnite season 6, week 8, you’re tasked with running around the map to visit specific locations for certain challenges. One challenge that might cause some confusion requires you to use launchers from Guardian Towers. Some players have misinterpreted this, thinking you must utilize a rocket launcher or grenade launcher at these spots, but that isn’t the case. What this actually means is that you must bounce from the launcher pads found at these specific Guardian Towers.

To finish the challenge, you must bounce from three of the six of them, and in this guide, we’ll show you where to find them. We’ll also go through the recommended route for maximum efficiency. Here’s how to use launchers from Guardian Towers in Fortnite.

Guardian Tower launcher locations

Fortnite.gg

As you can see in the map above (thanks, Fortnite.gg), each of the Guardian Towers are located at the tips of the orange pieces of land that protrude from the center of The Spire. Think of it like a star, with each tip featuring a Guardian Tower. All of the towers have a launch pad that sends you flying into the air if you interact with it, and those are what you’re looking for when working on this challenge.

We recommend attempting this challenge in Team Rumble so you can glide in after you respawn. This makes it much easier to hit each location. Remember, you can bounce from any pad, though all three have to be different to make progress. It’s also worth noting that your progress carries over from match to match, so no worries if you only manage to get two in a single game.

First Guardian Tower

For the purposes of simplicity, we’ll start at the westernmost tower and work our way around, counterclockwise. The first one is found to the west of Weeping Woods. Simply approach the top of the tower and walk up to the launch pad. Once it sends you flying, you’ll gain credit.

Second Guardian Tower

To the east of the previous location is the next tower, found just north of Misty Meadows.

Third Guardian Tower

Northeast of the previous tower is the third tower, which is north of Retail Row.

Fourth Guardian Tower

Head north for the next tower, past Colossal Crops, and you’ll find the next one. It’s northeast of Colossal Crops.

Fifth Guardian Tower

The next one is west, just southeast of Stealthy Stronghold.

Sixth Guardian Tower

And for the final one, you’ll find it just east of Sweaty Sands, by the water.

After you’ve bounced from three of the aforementioned launch pads, you’ll complete the challenge and earn 24,000 XP.
