Megalo Don does not have one set spawn location in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3. Instead, his position on the map is shown by a moving gold medallion icon. This means you have to search for him each match.

The first place to check is the new Brutal Beachhead area in the southern part of the Fortnite map. This wasteland outpost is often Megalo Don’s base of operations. However, he may also be leading a convoy of vehicles that travels around the island.

Keep watching your map and look for the medallion marker showing Megalo Don’s current whereabouts. If he’s not stationed at Brutal Beachhead, the icon’s movement on the map will show the path of his vehicles.

Defeating Megalo Don is different depending on whether you fight him at Brutal Beachhead or while he’s leading a convoy across the island. If he’s on the move, you’ll need to use a vehicle to chase him down.

Once you spot Megalo Don, he will be driving his Behemoth vehicle with two henchmen – one as a passenger and one manning a Grenade Launcher Turret. Megalo Don is also escorted by a War Bus carrying three minions, two manning the turrets.

Beating Megalo Don on the Move

The convoy won’t stop moving, so you’ll need to go after and attack them on the move to eliminate Megalo Don’s troops and destroy his lead vehicle.

Here are some tips and tricks to take down Megalo Don and his troops:

  • Equip your vehicle with strong mods like a Machine Gun Turret or Grenade Launcher
  • Shoot and eliminate the War Bus turret gunners first
  • Attack Megalo Don’s Behemoth vehicle to draw his attention
  • Keep damaging his vehicle until he exits to fight with melee attacks
  • Focus on eliminating Megalo Don’s henchmen first to isolate the boss
  • Use hit-and-run tactics, keeping your distance and reducing Megalo Don’s health from afar, before moving in.

Beating Megalo Don in Brutal Beachhead

If Megalo Don is dug in at Brutal Beachhead, taking him down is more of a standard boss fight. Land at the outpost and get ready to fight Megalo Don himself along with many goons guarding the area.

Unlike some previous bosses, you don’t need to interact with anything special to start the fight. As soon as you arrive, Megalo Don and his crew will be ready for combat on the giant shipwreck.

For solo players, storming Brutal Beachhead is likely the easier way to beat Megalo Don. You won’t need to chase a moving target, just focus your firepower on clearing out Megalo Don’s defenses.
