In order to get the Fortnite Mythic Primal Shotgun, you’re going to have to find the Spire Assassin. It isn’t particularly difficult, as you can’t miss the map’s central Spire after all! They spawn at the Spire’s peak, so make sure that you climb all the way up in order to catch the stealthy NPC’s attention.

Here’s a step by step guide for how to defeat the Assassin once you’ve got there.

How to defeat Guardian of the Spire

  • Drop from the Battle Bus and land in The Spire.
    • Make sure that you land directly in the middle of the area, so use the writing on the map as a guide. Landing right in the space between “The” and “Spire” drops you in the perfect location.
  • From here, the Assassin will spawn.
  • Kite backwards from the Assassin, as they use stealth based tactics to manoeuvre around you.
  • They also use a Shotgun style weapon, so the further back you are the less damage you’ll take.
  • Once the Assassin is eliminated, you can loot their body to get the Fortnite Mythic Primal Shotgun, named the “Spire Assassin’s Primal Shotgun.” It’s highlighted in gold and is easy to see.

So, that’s all you need to be able to take down the Spire Assassin. They’re a force to be reckoned with, but the rewards are tenfold.
