How to easily defeat Willow at Willow’s Haunt

Of all the NPC bosses added to the game for Fortnitemares 2022, Willow is by far the scariest. She is taller than the average figure and has parkour skills that would put Nightrunners to shame. Also, she carries around a rather large ax to hack and slash players with. Facing her in battle is terrifying.

However, there are ways to easily defeat her without breaking a sweat. Although some of these methods are quite strange, they will get the job done. Those who manage to defeat Willow once will receive 15,000 XP by completing the “Help defeat Willow at Willow’s Haunt” challenge.


3 ways to defeat Willow at Willow’s Haunt in Fortnite

Since there are many ways to defeat Willow, readers are free to choose the method they feel is the easiest. But there is always the possibility that things will not go according to plan.

1) Burn down Willow’s Haunt and Willow

Fire deals a lot of damage in the game. Anyone who has had the misfortune of being caught in a fire can confirm this statement. While Chrome Splash can be used to resist burn damage, Willow isn’t smart enough to jump on the bandwagon and follow.

When this is the case, players can collect Firefly Jars just west of Willow’s Haunt and use them to set the house on fire. While the flames may not eliminate Willow outright, they will deal significant damage.

Once the fire dies down, Willow will have low HP and easy enough to eliminate even with a gun.


2) Lure her out and find high ground to shoot from

Another easy way to defeat Willow in Chapter 3 Season 4 is to lure her out of Willow’s lair and shoot her from the high ground. While giant mushrooms in the area are a good option, it would be better to use a Port-A-Bunker.

Alternatively, players can even use Willow’s Haunt itself as a high ground. But remember that since she knows parkour, she will be able to climb up. However, players will be able to get a few shots off before this happens.

With some careful maneuvering and micro-rotations, players will be able to run circles around Willow with ease and defeat her. Remember to use an SMG or shotgun when using this strategy.


3) Team up with a friend and ask them to snipe her

Given that Willow is a very aggressive Fortnitemares NPC, it’s always better to bring a friend to help eliminate her. This strategy offers players multiple routes to get the job done.

For example, one player can lure Willow out of Willow’s Haunt while the other uses a sniper to land devastating headshots. If neither player is skilled with snipers, this can also be done with an AR, Cobra DMR, or SMG.

The ultimate goal is to distract her to ensure she is unable to inflict damage. Having two players makes this job much easier and improves the chances of eliminating her in a single match.
