The Storm King is the final boss in Fortnite: Save the World, first interactable in the Fortnite: Battle Royale Quest, and as a Boss in Battle Royale during Fortnitemares 2019. He could also be seen in the Rift Tour event.
Save the World
The Storm King is first mentioned in the Stonewood Storyline, when Lars encounters him while in his van.
In the Reverse Tinfoil Hats Quest, it is revealed that The Storm King has started to deploy a mind control scheme on Homebase. His plan is foiled shortly after, but the dread on the survivors remained for some time. The Alpha Rift at the end of Canny Valley is finally revealed and a stable Beta Rift is used to enter the other side of the portal: The Storm, where the Storm King is defeated by a squad of heroes.
Meanwhile, Desiree stays behind after it is defeated and blows up the portal using a Singularity Pulse Bomb while in the Storm Realm. The Storm King leaves behind his supposed heart, The Cube as it sinks into the pool in the center of the map.
Later in Twine Peaks, you fight a second Storm King, even more powerful than the first, having the storm close in on you if you didn't kill the Mini-Bosses. This is known as the Mythic Storm King. This Storm King can give you the first set of Mythic Weapons in Save the World. A Power Level of 128 is needed to fight the Mythic Storm King.
Defeating the Storm King
The Storm King has 3 Weak Points:
- One on his left elbow.
- One on his right elbow.
- One on his chest.
After the 3 weak spots are destroyed, you and your team will need to build towards any horn of the Storm King and pickaxe it. Once one horn is broken, all 3 Weak Spots will regenerate, prompting you to destroy them again. The Weak Spots will be more harder to destroy because the Storm King will be much more aggressive towards the player and more Monsters will spawn to serve as a distraction.
Once the final Horn is broken, the Storm King will be very vulnerable, and can take damage from anywhere in his body. After defeating the Storm King, the cube that kept him alive will drop into a pool of water and dissolve. The Mission will complete upon the cube completely
In Chapter 2: Season 1, a mode called Storm King was released for Fortnitemares of 2019. In this LTM, you would drop either to a nearby named or unnamed location. The storm would close in quickly, so you had to move fast if you didn't land on the Isle Of The Storm or the middle island. Then, you would have to defeat the Storm King by destroying all of his weak spots. After destroying his weak spots, you have to shoot him in the horns until his health bar is empty. Then you would be rewarded with a couple of battle medals and a new umbrella.
Rift Tour 2021
In Chapter 2: Season 7, the Storm King could be seen in Phase 3 of the Rift Tour event. Players would shoot at a reincarnation of the Storm King, and would gain points by shooting the crystals on its body, nearby crystals around the map, and scattered Emoting Cube Monsters.
