Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 is rumbling on, and a brand new location has been added to the map, with Panther’s Prowl, a monument in honor of Black Panther appearing in the south of the island. 

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll be well aware that Season 4 is based around superheroes, with Marvel’s popular characters invading the game as they prepare for battle against the evil villain Galactus.

The Season 4 Battle Pass features characters like Thor, Tony Stark, Storm, and even Wolverine. As Season 4 has progressed, new points of interest have sprouted up across the island, seemingly built by the characters as their home base on the island.

Doctor Doom has taken over Pleasant Park, Antman has created Ant Manor, and now Black Panther has been added to the mix, taking ownership of a section of land near Misty Meadows.

If you’re looking for the Panther’s Prowl monument, the good news is that it’s going to be hard to miss, as it seems like a giant island has just plopped out of the sky and settled west of Misty Meadows, perched on top of a hill to give you a view over the entire town.

It’s easy to know this location is in honor of Black Panther, with a massive statue of the animal sitting proudly on top, in a pose reminiscent of the massive panther statue that looks down over Wakanda, the fictional home of the Black Panther.

Even better, players can actually walk up the tail of the creature and stand on top of its head, giving you an incredible view of the surrounding area. There’s also some gear to be found, with floor loot scattered across the area, and a chest sitting inside the roaring mouth of the big cat.

Panther’s monument is unlikely to be the last superhero-themed location we see this season, with The Collector also rumored to get his own spot somewhere on the map in the near future.

The addition of the monument comes at a time when many are mourning the loss of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Black Panther, following the sad passing of actor Chadwick Boseman on August 28. The character became a cultural icon following the movie’s release in 2018 and played major roles in both Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame.

Epic Games has teamed up with Marvel once again in Fortnite Season 4. This time, some of their biggest characters are scattered across the land in the form of bosses. Here’s everything you need to know about where to find them.

It’s a beautiful thing when two worlds collide. Figuratively speaking, of course. But it’s hard to find a pair that has overlapped better than Fortnite and the Marvel Universe. They’re both big, bright, colorful, and rich in lore. And of course, they’re both immensely popular.

It all started when Epic Games launched the Thanos LTM back in April 2018. It’s been a while since then, but the two worlds have crossed over once again, and this time, it’s been a blast.

Galactus, a cosmic being who consumes planets to sustain himself, is planning to wreak havoc on the Fortnite island. As a result, heroes and villains within the Marvel Universe have been popping up all over the place. Some of them are bosses, which players can hunt and eliminate for rewards. But in order to do that, you’ll need to know where to find them.

Here’s what you need to know.

Iron Man

Iron Man might be a fan-favorite hero, but he’s a formidable foe in Fortnite. If you’re willing to take him on to get your hands on his prized possession, a pair of badass rocket gloves, you can find him in Stark Industries. It’s located on the north-east side of the map. But be warned, he’ll put up a hell of a fight.

Gorger

Gorgers are bigger and more dangerous versions of the Gatherer Drones. Galactus has programmed and sent them with one objective; to create chaos.

However, they don’t have a specific spawn location, which makes them a little harder to find. But if you find and kill the Gorger that can be seen at the start of the match, it will shoot a red beam that leads you right to the boss variants.

Doctor Doom

Doctor Doom is one of the more iconic villains in the Marvel Universe. He’s mostly known as the main antagonist in the Fantastic Four series. However, he’s also tangled with Black Panther, Iron Man, Spider-Man, X Men, and The Avengers many times.

The imposing menace has found a new home at Pleasant Park. The first thing you’ll notice is that it’s been renamed Doom’s Domain.

Next, you’ll notice that he’s recruited a bunch of hostile guards to make your life difficult. But don’t worry too much about them. You can find Doctor Doom walking around Doom House, which is on the northern side of Doom’s Domain.

Bear in mind, though, that as a patrolling character, he will make brief stops in other places in the area. So you might need to look around for a bit before you find him.

If you manage to find him and take him down, he’ll drop some items that will let you use his overpowered abilities as well as a card that lets you access a secret vault.

And with that, you’re ready to rock and roll. The boss fights can be somewhat challenging, but with a bit of time and effort, you’ll persevere.
