How to Kill Wolverine in Fortnite Easily!

It's time to finally obtain the hidden outfit for this season of the Battle Pass!

Now that the Wolverine outfit is obtainable in the game, you can finally run around as the six clawed, brooding, angry, fellow named Logan. Unfortunately, to get the skin, you will need to take on a pretty difficult task, and that is dispatching Wolverine in the game. This is pretty hard if you don't have a game plan ahead of time, but don't worry, because we're going to teach you the ways on how to finish him off easily and have you running around causing trouble in the skin fast!

Wolverine is the "secret" skin of Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 4. I obviously put secret in quotation marks, because there was nothing secret about him. This has been a trend in Chapter 2, where the former hidden outfits have been a large part of the marketing for the seasons. I don't have a big problem with this because I'm happy with these bonus cosmetics, and the actual secret skins from the past weren't all that impressive anyway.

Be sure to complete all of the other Wolverine challenges before looking to tangle with him in game!

Defeating Wolverine

To kill Wolverine in Fortnite, you will need to first locate him. This is surprisingly difficult, but once you know where he spawns it isn't so hard. Grab a helicopter and fly around the path shown in the map below. You should come across him lumbering around the wooded areas of Weeping Woods and Slurpy Swamp.

If you're still struggling to locate him, you can check out this video that has a good strategy on finding him. Remember, you can only find him in normal Battle Royale modes, and everyone is going to be looking for him now. So, it's going to be pretty hard. If you have the capability, I would do this in a Bot Lobby, which isn't too hard to get to work.

Now, as for defeating Wolverine, this is a bit more difficult. However, there are some methods you can use to make the fight easier. One is a bugged way to kill him, which goes against the spirit of the game, but you could use if you're tired of getting slashed to pieces. The strategy is to draw him over to a house in Weeping Woods, and then ramp up to it to get on the roof. Wolverine will attempt to get to you, but he will break the ramp and he will basically be stuck in place. You can then just shoot him until he drops. It's important to note, that once you knock Wolverine down that you need to take him out as quickly as possible! He has the ability to revive himself, so hurry up and finish him.

Another basic strategy is to get up high again on the roof of buildings and fire at him with a sniper rifle and assault rifle. This is just the best general strategy to take him out, because if he gets close to you he's going to slice you to bits. Engage in the fight as far away from him as possible, try to do so in an unreachable area, and make sure to finish him off because he will revive pretty quickly if you don't.

Once you are able to finish Wolverine off, you will then obtain the Wolverine skin! You aren't done though, because there's a couple more challenges to complete, as well as obtaining the classic and Logan styles that you can get for your new outfit.

  1. Yeah, not really working in a solos game.

  2. Just turn on visualize audio effects in settings then you will be able to see his footsteps when he’s close.

  3. day 50000 of trying to kill wolverine, no luck

    1. I did the bot lobby as hypex suggested. Also really helped when about 3 bots got mixed into the fight. best is to attack him near a building and fight from the roof.
