How to defeat Meowscles and get Mythic Peow Peow Rifle in Fortnite

Daniel Cleary

There are five new bosses that players can take on in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2. Here’s how to defeat Meowscles and pick up the Mythic Peow Peow Rifle.

Fortnite’s Season 2 Top secret update saw the introduction of five NPC bosses that players would be able to battle at the different new locations around the map.

Each of the newly introduced characters also came along with great rewards as players who manage to defeat them would gain access to loot vaults with some highly desirable items that could change the course of your game.

You will need to defeat Meowscles for the Yacht’s vault keycard.

As with many of the Boss locations in Fortnite, it is likely that other players will also be looking to secure some of the loot that the hidden vaults hold.

The Yacht vault, which is guarded by Meowscles, is based on the North East side of the main island and can be quite difficult to prepare for. So here’s what you’ll need to tackle this boss.

How to defeat Meowscles in Fortnite Season 2

  1. Land on top of the Yacht and pick up a weapon. There should be plenty scattered around the top floor of the ship.
  2. Takedown one of the henchmen that are guarding the boat and shake them down for intel on Meowscles.
  3. After doing so, you should be able to find the NPC boss easily as he will be marked with a crown icon that can be seen through the boat.
  4. Make your way to Meowscles and take him down. The easiest way to do this is by grabbing headshots as you’ll deal the most damage.
  5. After defeating him, pick up the keycard and the Mythic Heavy AR that is dropped.
  6. The quickest way to find the hidden vault is to dig your way straight down from the center of the yacht until you reach the engine room where the vault door lies.
  7. Open the vault using the keycard and get as much loot as you can carry!
After gathering all the loot, players can take the Porta Potty back to the main island.

As this is probably the most remote hidden vault location, Epic also added a quick shortcut for players to make use of so they don’t fall to the storm while trying to return to the main island.

To take this shortcut, simply walk up to the Porta-Potty that is set at the back of the vault and interact with it to be transported back near Steamy Stacks.

With the Mythic Peow Peow rifle and all of your new-found loot, you should be set to have a good chance at picking up a Victory Royale which would make of all of the hard work worth it.
