Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1 Boss Fight: How to Beat Geno the Timeless Champion

Fortnite Chapter 4 has brought a ton of major changes to one of the biggest games on the planet – but some things have stayed the same. For example, this season there’s a brand new boss called The Ageless Champion, who has an awesome mythical weapon that you can loot from him after defeating him.

But there’s even better news: this guy is easier to handle than last season’s boss. While people usually seemed to have left The Herald alone for the past season, you can expect this new guy’s weapon to be around a lot more than the Herald’s burst rifle.

Who is The Ageless Champion and where can I find him?

Doubling as an in-game boss and as the final skin in the Chapter 4 Season 1 Battle Pass, The Ageless is a snapshot of Geno, the founder of the IO. We don’t really know what he’s related to the story at the moment, but he rules a kingdom from the stark medieval castle called The Citadel, which can be found in the northwestern part of the new Battle Royale island.

Here you will find The Ageless.

How do I defeat the Timeless Champion?

The Ageless holds 750 shields and 750 health, and is armed with two weapons new to Fortnite: a Shockwave Hammer and a mythical weapon, the Ageless Champion’s Ex-Caliber Rifle. The Ex-Caliber is a new type of marksman rifle introduced in Chapter 4 Season 1 that works similar to the Boom Sniper, firing a blade that lodges in your target and explodes after a brief moment. And this version of the gun is the best version.

If you’re up close, The Ageless will come at you with the hammer, dealing 60 damage and knocking you back really hard. If you’re out of range, he’ll shoot his Ex-Caliber instead.

Unlike last season’s Herald combat, which included immune phases and mob enemies, here we are again just regular straight combat without that extra Destiny Strike boss stuff that they did with The Herald. He doesn’t seem to do anything too savage – he just fights with his guns like a regular villain.

And that means it’s pretty easy to take down. A solo player might struggle a bit, but any decently armed pair of players should be able to nuke him. And a squad? Forget it. You’ll cut it like it’s made of warm butter.

What do I get for defeating The Ageless Champion?

In addition to a standard hunk of random loot, you’ll get two guaranteed drops for beating The Ageless. You get his hammer, which like all Shockwave Hammers is standard purple quality. And you get his mythical Ex-Caliber rifle, which is quite an asset once you’re familiar with the new weapon type.
