How to Deal Damage to Henchmen in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2

Henchmen are good for thing. Shooting.


Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 has arrived, which means new challenges. The format of challenges has changed somewhat, and you will now find them under the Battle Pass section of the menu. You will be able to see the Challenge Table, which will tell you all the different tasks you will be doing this week.

One of the challenge for this first week of Season 2 is to deal damage to Henchmen. Henchman are a new AI mob that has been introduced, and the easiest place to find some is the head to the Agency headquarters on the Eye Land, right in the center of the map.

This headquarters building is crawling with henchmen of different types. They will be armed with all manner of weapons that they will drop when you kill them. For the most part, they are not a threat, but in a group, they will undoubtedly be able to take you out. All you need to do is shoot them and do a total of 2000 damage to them. Make sure you grab a weapon before you engage them because when you shoot one, more will come running.

Henchmen don’t instantly die, and instead get downed, giving you a chance to run up to them and perform a Shakedown. You can then score some easy damage while finishing them off. You will also find a bunch of henchmen on the yacht to the north of Sweaty Sands, past the islands, and on the oil rig to the west of Slurpy Swamp, out in the sea.
