Players who dive into Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2 now have the chance to take down five bosses for a chance at some mythic loot. So, here’s how you can defeat TNTina and grab the Boom Bow.

Following the launch of the V12.00 update, Epic Games added five NPC bosses and an army of henchman to the new set of locations on the battle royale map. 


While these bosses can be a bit of a pain to take down – they have got some ridiculous amounts of health and shield after all – doing so is a rewarding task. You’ll get access to the specific location’s loot vault, as well as the mythic weapon that the defeated boss will drop.

We’ve already run through guides on how to defeat Brutus, Midas, and Skye, so the next one in line for you to take down is TNTina.

The Boom Bow returns in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2.

If you’ve not come up against the explosive sounding boss just yet, that’s probably because you haven’t been to The Rig. 

The Oil Rig location is based nearly Slurpy Swamp and you can get lost at sea, quite literally, if the storm isn’t in your favor. That, however, won’t be a huge concern though, as you should be more worried about taking down TNTina.  So, here’s how you can do so:

  1. Drop from the Battle Bus and land at The Rig
  2. Land on top of the white building numbered as ‘3’ – dig down and drop inside the building
  3. Grab whatever weapon is floating as floor loot and jump outside the building so that you can enter a door
  4. Takedown one of the henchmen that awaits you inside and carry them upstairs to the ID scanner chest
  5. Open the chest and take the weapons that pop out
  6. Head downstairs and takedown TNTina. Aim for headshots as you’ll do more damage
  7. Collect her Mythic Boom Bow and The Rig keycard, which can be used to open the vault

TNTina is located at The Rig.

Unlike Brutus, Midas, and Skye, there aren’t many tips or tricks that you can use to defeat TNTina on The Rig, but you should use the doors in here building as cover until she destroys them with the boom bow.


Once you wield the boom bow, you can do some serious damage to opponents but be wary of running out of ammo. Make sure to pick your shots and you’ll have a shot at grabbing a victory royale.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.


With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.


As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
  • 11th: 7 Points
  • 12th: 6 Points
  • 13th: 5 Points
  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.


FNCS Season 4 will feature three weeks of qualifiers, with the top 15 teams from each week qualifying for the Grand Finals, who will be joined by the 87 teams with the highest cumulative points over the three qualifying rounds, with up to 132 teams competing in the Grand Finals on October 29.

As always, Epic Games will be hosting their own broadcast for the FNCS Season 4 events, complete with commentary and analysis to make sure you catch all the action as it happens. You can check out the official Fortnite FNCS stream on their official Twitch channel, which has been embedded below.


FNCS Season 4 dates

FNCS Season 4 will run across four weeks ⁠— three weeks of qualifiers, and one week for finals. If you want to sign yourself up, these are the dates you need to know.

  • FNCS Week 1: October 9 – October 11
  • FNCS Week 2: October 16 – October 18

The first day of each week will be an open qualifier. If you make the top 33 teams, you’ll be invited to play in the next two days for a chance to make it to the Finals.


FNCS isn’t the only competition coming to Fortnite Season 4. Weekly Cash Cups for Solos and Trios will be returning, while the Dreamhack Online Open (Solo) will also take place across NA and Europe.

With players set to earn up to $111,000 for winning the whole tournament, you can rest assured that there will be plenty of action when the action kicks off.
