The Fortnitemares update brought Halloween to Fortnite, including the Zero Build Horde Rush LTM, Howler Claws weapon, and even more skins such as Rick and Morty’s Queen Summer and Mr Meeseeks, as well as The Evil Dead’s Ash Williams.

It wouldn’t be a Fortnite event without Quests to complete, and players can complete both the Fortnitemares and Escape Room Quests for free Halloween rewards. You’ll need to find and help defeat the Inkquisitor boss for these Quests, so here’s how.

Fortnite’s Inkquisitor boss can be found at the Grim Gables POI which can be found south-east of Chromejam Junction.

You’ll need to head underneath the house to the mine shafts and stand in the middle of the circle of braziers to summon the Inkquisitor and fight them.

How to defeat the Inkquisitor in Fortnite

The Inkquisitor is a pretty straightforward fight but you’ll need to stock up on Shields and high-damage weapons before taking on the new Fortnite boss.

We recommend ensuring your Shield is at 100 before stepping into the circle to summon the Inkquisitor as they’ll be firing Pumpkin Launchers and throwing Firefly Jars at you. You’ll also need to watch out for the zombies they’ll summon to attack you.

Just keep your distance avoiding the explosions and fire, and you’ll soon whittle down the Inkquisitor’s chunky health bar.
