Epic Games are suing a tester who supposedly leaked the second chapter, and Fortnitemares has come back with a vengeance just in time for Halloween. This spooky-themed celebration boasts a bunch of challenges with one of them requiring you to defeat the Storm King.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Fortnitemares challenges: How to defeat the Storm King

Once you've entered the limited-time mode to confront the Storm King in Fortnite Chapter 2, you and a team of players will be pitted against a towering beast that appears to have come from Kingdom Hearts.

This fight takes place on a small island after being dropped from the sky by the usual Battle Bus. Use the opening few moments to grab weapons and ammo before heading off to the island in anticipation of the storm.

To kill the Storm King and complete the challenge of dealing 10,000 damage to his weakpoints, you will want to aim at and keep shooting the yellow glow on his chest.

Once that weakspot is destroyed you will then need to target the other weakpoints that appear all over his body one after the other. These appear on his back, arms and horns.

The consequence for breaking his weakpoints is that your ruthlessness quickly results in portals appearing all over the map for enemies to spawn into combat.

You needn't threat about defeating these simple enemies with melee to avoid wasting ammo as they pretty much always drop weapons and supplies as they die.

All you need to do is keep destroying the weakpoints and fending off the horde until the Storm King's Horns are both shattered. You can build turrets to quickly destroy the Storm King's horns when his head is bowed, but be aware that a single attack from him will destroy the turret.

When his horns are no more all you have to do then is shoot his torso to take his purple health bar from full to empty. And this will result in the Defeat the Storm King challenge becoming completed.
