'Fortnite' Eliminate Raptor, Zenith or Blackheart Locations For Week 3 Challenges

Fortnite has a new batch of challenges for players to complete during Week 3 of Season 6, and one of the more obtuse tasks on the list asks players to eliminate Raptor, Zenith or Blackheart. Especially if you're not familiar with the new boss NPCs on the Battle Royale map, you might not know where to start your search. In this guide, we reveal the precise spawn locations for all three characters.

It's worth remembering that this challenge only requires you to eliminate any one of these three NPCs. So, if you have trouble taking down a particular boss, you can always try one of the other two instead. Always go into battle with the best weapon you can find and plenty of ammo. These bosses will crumble under any sustained bullet fire.

Fortnite Raptor location

Raptor is listed as NPC #39 on the roster, and he spawns at the Crash Site landmark location. It's this bunch of debris on the large island southeast of Coral Castle. You'll often see him walking amongst the wreckage in his bright yellow outfit. He's got a fast-firing weapon and loves tossing grenades, so just keep circling him and firing till he's eliminated.

Fortnite Zenith location

If you'd rather eliminate Zenith, he's set up shop at the Weather Station building, which is situated directly south of Catty Corner. He can be found anywhere in the vicinity of this building, sometimes behind its fences and sometimes further away. He comes at you with a pretty strong AR, so just keep your distance and fire at him with your best weapon.

Fortnite Blackheart location

Blackheart is NPC #40, and you'll find him on the Viking Vessel, west of Holly Hedges. You'll often see him on the top deck of the ship, and he typically spawns with a shotgun. As long as you empty a full clip into him before he realizes what's going on, you should be able to eliminate him easily.
