Underboss Skulls are essentially keys that allow you the chance to access a Vampire Gods’ lair. Once you get to the Redfall quest that allows you to kill one of these bosses, you’ll need to place the Underboss Skulls on the shrine and unlock the door to their lair.

Alternatively, they are also used to unlock other treasures and can be placed on random altars throughout Redfall.

Naturally, Underboss Skulls can be found by killing off Underbosses. Such creatures will only be unlocked when you find a Safehouse, complete the first mission, and then unlock the option to take on The Vampire Underboss.

Upon selecting that quest you’ll be directed to its location. Take the tricky creature down and a pile of Vampire Remains will appear, on top of it will be the Underboss Skull you’re looking for.

Then, simply look out for shrines and place the skulls on top whenever you have a chance.
