Epic Games have added a number of NPC bosses to Fortnite Chapter 2 in Season 2. If you would like to know how to defeat Midas and find a Mythic Drum Gun, you have come to the right place. 

A number of fresh faces have appeared in the battle royale game since the v12.00 update rolled out on all platforms, with five loot vaults now being protected by henchmen and bosses at almost every corner of the map.

Defeating them will enable you to open each of the vaults, as they drop a keycard that can be swiped at each vault to let you inside, but that’s not all. These powerful bots that Epic Games added in Season 2 have much more HP than standard players and drop different types of powerful weapons.

Fortnite players will see Midas running around The Agency building with his gold Mythic Drum Gun.

Midas, for example, drops one of the strongest weapons the game has ever seen – the Mythic, or legendary, Drum Gun. This gold variant of the gun can tear through enemies and their builds with ease, contributing to what Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has described as a “spray meta” in Season 2.

So, if you would like to get a leg up on your opponents and add a really powerful force to your arsenal, here’s how to take out Midas and get one.

How to defeat Midas in Fortnite Season 2

  1. Drop into The Agency location in Fortnite. Be aware, this is one of the hottest drops in the game so expect company.
  2. Pick up a weapon and go to the center of The Agency building, where there’s a large statue of a character holding a globe on his back.
  3. Head down one of the corridors and you will see Midas has spawned there in an office.
  4. Try to stay out of his line of fire and carefully take him down, before others do.
  5. Once he has been eliminated, he will drop the Mythic Drum Gun and The Agency keycard.
  6. Use the keycard to open the vault at the location, which can be located with a Key icon that will appear once Midas has been knocked out.

The corridor at the top right of The Agency’s main room is where you need to go. At the end, you should see Midas inside an office.

Unlike other locations, there isn’t a way of escaping The Agency vault from the inside. Other locations, such as The Yacht and The Shark, allow players to jump inside a Porta Potty that will take them closer to the middle of the map – and away from the storm.

Here, though, The Agency building is in the middle of the map so there’s no need, it just means you have to escape the building with your insane loot without being taken down by enemies, which can be tricky.

Knowing what you know now, hopefully, you will be able to pick up a Mythic Drum Gun a bit easier the next time you drop from the Battle Bus, as knowing exactly where Midas spawns will give you an advantage. Good luck!
