If you struggle to defeat the Inkquisitor at Grim Gables, you can follow our guide on how to enter Fortnite bot lobbies in Chapter 3 Season 4. When you are in bot lobbies, you can complete challenges easily, as bots are extremely easy to eliminate.

To defeat the Inkquisitor at Grim Gables, you must drop at this location and keep the distance between yourself and the boss. Here are all the steps you need to take:

1) Land at Grim Gables

Defeating the new Fortnite Halloween boss can be quite a challenge. The boss deals with a lot of fire and explosive damage, which is a big problem since the NPC is located in a basement.

You must land at this location to defeat the Inkquisitor at Grim Gables. We recommend that you land here immediately as the boss will most likely be eliminated if you decide to visit another location.

Locate the bounty board and enter the haunted house through the door on this side. As soon as you are in the house, look to your left and drop down to the basement.


2) Summon the boss

Once you enter the basement, you must go to the central area to summon the boss. You need to walk over the area, and the summoning ritual will begin.

This is where the boss will spawn, so you should avoid it. Keeping a distance between yourself and the boss will be key. Also, pay attention to other players who are at Grim Gables.


3) Defeat the boss

When the boss finally spawns, you will have a tough fight ahead of yourself. The Inkquisitor frequently uses the Pumpkin Launcher and Firefly Jars, so you must avoid these attacks.

Since the boss fight occurs in the basement, avoiding these damage sources is challenging. Fortunately, the boss doesn't have a lot of HP, and you will receive the Pumpkin Launcher and the Mythic SMG after your victory.
