More Fortnite season 8 guides
Fortnite’s Cube Assassin is a new NPC that will severely damage your face. Cube Assassin is an NPC, you can try to defeat it to get new rewards, including the new color of your Paint-a-Toona character. However, you need to wade through the entire Sideways encounter full of monsters to find her.
Cube Assassin is indeed one of the toughest challenges of Fortnite Season 8, so we have listed a guide below to show you how to find and defeat her.
She is also the key to unlocking the Cube Assassin style for Paint-a-Toona. After defeating her, her color will be unlocked instead of finding the color bottle.
Where to find the cube assassin
Cube Assassin can be found in lateral cracks, which appear in random locations around the map. These are not the large Sideways spheres that have formed on the map. They start with simple cracks, so look for the above symbols on your map to see where they are generated in your game.
Before you jump in, make sure you are ready for a considerable battle. At least some weapons and a lot of ammunition are in stock. When you jump into the crack, a horizontal area will form around you.
You will be swarmed by Sideways monsters immediately, and if you have entered any other Sideways areas, you will be familiar with them. These include basic zombie types, more powerful types that can throw projectiles, and types that burst out of poisonous gas clouds when defeated.
Note the timer bar at the top of the screen. Killing enemies will fill up the bar, and when you reach a certain mark on the bar, your time will be extended. If time runs out, the Sideways area will disappear and you will waste time.
About 15-20 seconds after the start of the battle, Cube Assassin is expected to spawn in the center of the area, possibly right next to the initial crack. However, this is not a 100% guarantee, so if she does not show up, please don’t be shocked, you need to try again elsewhere.
The Cube Assassin is equipped with the Sideways Gatling Gun, which is a very powerful rapid-fire gun. The more you fire, the higher the damage. Every once in a while, she will also generate a shield wall in front of her to absorb all the damage.
However, at this shield stage, her back is still very fragile, so please go around her quickly and continue firing. Like other NPCs, she has a shield and a health bar. She needs to move 2-5 rounds between her shield and Gatling gun phase to completely defeat her.
Obviously, if you team up with your friends, the battle will be much easier, so consider teaming up.
When you defeat the Rubik’s Cube Assassin, the side area should disappear, and she will become a transparent NPC, you can talk to and buy Rubik’s Cube monster parts.
This is the cube assassin. I won’t be surprised to see her appear in a future challenge, so please pay attention. Don’t forget to check our Fortnite page for more challenge guides, new skins and more.
