Where to Find and How to Defeat Oscar in Fortnite

I was able to defeat Oscar in Fortnite by making use of both an Uncommon Shotgun and a few Rare Assault Rifles/SMGs to perform well-placed headshots while using the trees found all over the gardens and the hallways of the Manor as cover. Having at least three weapons here is key, as he will summon guards as backup during the fight.

As Oscar will have in his Mythic Frenzy Action Shotgun his biggest weapon, make sure to purchase a few Shield Potions before facing him. The Shotgun is also the best weapon in the game when the subject is rushing in, so don’t forget to grab it immediately after defeating him.

This guide was made while playing Fortnite on both PS5 and PC.
