Fortnite Season 4's Mythic weapons actually come in the form of abilities and items tied to specific heroes and villains newly arrived in the season's Marvel crossover event. Here's what you need to know about each one.
Fortnite Season 4 Mythic Weapons
There appear to be four Mythic items in Fortnite as of the Season 4 update. They are as follows:
- Doctor Doom's Mystical Bomb
- Doctor Doom's Arcane Gauntlets
- Silver Surfer's Board
- Groot's Bramble Shield
Each of these items can be retrieved at different locations. To get Doom's items, you'll have to find him wandering around the new named location, Doom's Domain. He appears able to spawn anywhere in the town, and he has a staggering amount of health, but if you defeat him he'll drop both items and a keycard to his vault.
To get the other two items, you'll have to make your way to the landing locations of one of four jets that deploy at the start of each match. Once they land, you'll be able to see them marked on the map with white airplane indicators.
At these downed planes you'll find Stark Robots you'll need to defeat, plus hovering drones you can shoot down for loot. Those drones can, but are not guaranteed to, contain Groot's Bramble Shield or the Silver Surfer's Board.
Where Doom's items are a pair of weapons — one precise, one explosive — Groot's and Silver Surfer's offer utility. Groot's Bramble Shield creates a rolling shield that heals you as you roll around quickly and safely, and Silver Surfer's Board works as a kind of at-will launch pad.
Epic Games will likely add more Mythic items and weapons as more Marvel characters join the fight.
