New in Fortnite Season 2 are henchmen and Agent bosses. These NPCs on the map behave similarly to the First Order Troopers we saw in the Star Wars crossover event for The Last Skywalker. They also bring a new ID Scanner locked door and chest mechanic with them to the game.
Instead of the First Order though, the henchmen and bosses are linked to the mysterious Shadow and Ghost organisations which have invaded new locations on the Fortnite map.
Once you enter these locations, you’ll be able to fight against the new enemies and claim unique rewards.
Where to find Henchmen in Fortnite
You can find Henchmen in all of the new points of interest on the Fortnite map. These are:
- The Shark
- The Agency
- The Grotto
- The Rig
- The Yacht
Henchmen have a small amount of shields and around 100 health. When they go down, you’ll be able to initiate a shakedown, which gives you a Scanner which points towards enemies and chests in your vicinity.
You can also carry the henchmen once they’re knocked down. When they’re in this state, deal some more damage to them for a loot drop.
How to open ID Scanner doors and chests in Fortnite
Along with the henchmen, there’s a new mechanic in the organisation bases: ID Scanner locked doors and chests. Normally when you walk up to these you’re given the option to “scan yourself”, but they won’t open.
To open an ID Scanner locked Door in Fortnite, you need to knock down a henchman and press the prompt to “carry” them. Now go over to the ID Scanner locked door and scan them instead of yourself. It will now open!
Where to find Agent bosses in Fortnite
The Agents or bosses seem to be extra tough henchmen who not only take a lot more damage, but give you unique rewards. They can be found in the different bases around the map. Judging by the Agents menu in the lobby, more Agent bosses will appear throughout season 2.
Here are all the ones we’ve found so far!
Brutus – Location: The Grotto
In the far east of the map you’ll find Brutus on the 2nd floor of The Grotto. Jump or glide down the silos to find him! Downing Brutus lands you a unique weapon: Brutus’ Minigun – it’s legendary rarity.
