Last season, Fortnite had no bosses on the island. After defeating the Imagined Order, the island was safe, but that's not the case this time. Chapter 3 Season 4 began with one boss, the Herald, but now the island has three bosses to deal with.
Epic Games added both the Inkquisitor and Willow to the game with the latest update. This gives Loopers someone on the island to fight against that doesn't constitute an enemy player.
It's unclear if these bosses are just here for Fortnitemares or if they'll stay longer, but it would be wise to try and fight them before they potentially leave. Here's where the boss can be found and how to defeat it in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4.
How to find and defeat Willow in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4
Step 1: Enter a Fortnite match
Load the game up and begin matchmaking. The mode can be Solo, Duos, Trios, or Squads. The more, the merrier is often true when fighting a boss, so keep that in mind. However, Willow can be found in any type of match.
Step 2: Fly past Reality Tree to a cabin
The location for Willow is in a cabin beyond Reality Tree. This is not to be confused with the cabin that is before you get to Reality Tree. It is basically on the edge of the island. It is marked above for your convenience. Mark that spot on the map and fly there whenever it is appropriate to drop out of the bus.
Step 3: Enter the cabin
The cabin will go dark as it is the home of a Halloween-themed boss. Inside, there are plenty of items that can turn into zombies, which is often a jump scare. Be wary inside this cabin and be sure to loot up well before entering.
Step 4: Find Willow
Willow is pretty easy to find. Simply go up the stairs and the boss will come running out after you. Remember to avoid zombies at the same time, too.
Step 5: Fight Willow in Fortnite
Willow, unlike the Inkquisitor, does not have any ranged weapons. The boss will sprint and jump towards you with a big axe that deals 12 damage per hit. It is advised to keep your distance and try to deal damage that way, but that is easier said than done when a boss and several zombies are chasing you.
Once you defeat Willow in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4, which is a challenge given the boss' health levels and the zombies that spawn every few seconds, loot will drop to the ground.
However, unlike the Inkquisitor, the weapon is not Mythic. The Inkquisitor drops the Mythic Inkquisitor's Suppressed SMG, but Willow drops a random Epic item. It's still a good reward, even if it's not Mythic.
