Defeating the Cube Assassin not only gives you the sense of victory but also has a tangible reward of giving you the Cube Assassin style for the Battle Pass Skin Toona-Fish. Man, I miss when all you had to do was collect some Color Bottles for the Paint-a-Toona, it was so much easier back then. Anyway, let’s stop thinking about the fish and start thinking about taking out this Assassin. This guide will show you where to find the Cube Assassin in Fortnite.
Where is the Cube Assassin in Fortnite
To find the Cube Assassin in Fortnite, you will need to find yourself a Sideways Anomaly These are labeled on your map as a circular, purple rift that when approached will send you to the Sideways. Before you decide to approach one of these rifts, make sure you are prepared with shields and weapons as you will not only encounter the Cube Assassin here but also several Sideways monsters. Once you are prepared, make your way to whatever Anomaly you want. While not 100% that she will show up, the Cube Assassin will make her presence known after about 2o seconds into the fight. She is wielding a Sideways Gatling gun and will spawn a shield to protect herself. This is your chance to take her out. Be mindful of the timer, however, because if it runs out, the Encounter will end. You can get more time by killing enemies and passing certain thresholds of the bar at the top of the screen.
The Cube Assassin has both a shield and health bar and needs to be approached carefully due to her high damage weapon. Try and take shots at her between volleys of her gun and get behind her when she puts her shield up, she is still vulnerable to attack there. Once defeated, the Encounter will end and she will become a normal NPC, allowing you to talk and buy items from her. You will also get the Cube Assassin style for Paint-a-Toona.
