Fortnite Peter Griffin guide: how to unlock the skin and beat the boss

If there’s one thing you can count on in each season of Fortnite, it’s that there will be an exciting new crossover or two to keep various fandoms on their toes. We’ve seen everything from Star Wars to Attack on Titan to Futurama, and chapter 5, season 1 is here to surprise us yet again with the shocking addition of Family Guy‘s Peter Griffin. The beloved cartoon character makes an appearance in multiple capacities, serving both as a boss that can be defeated and a skin that you can unlock in the battle pass. In this guide, we’ll tell you how to get the skin for yourself, as well as how to tackle the boss battle against everyone’s favorite lovable oaf.

How to get the Peter Griffin skin

Peter Griffin’s skins can be unlocked in the chapter 5, season 1 battle pass, which can be purchased for 950 V-Bucks.

You’ll find Peter Griffin’s first skin on Page 11 of the battle pass, so you’ll need to reach level 70 to unlock it. However, you can also score two alternate skins for the character by completing all 100 levels of the battle pass and proceeding to Page 2 of the Bonus Rewards section. It’s also possible that additional Peter Griffin alternate skins will be added to these Bonus Rewards in the coming weeks as new skins are revealed for this extra layer of the battle pass.

Peter Griffin can be found at Snooty Steppes. He’s encountered in the large villa on the highest steppe on the far left side of the point of interest.

Seeing as he’s a boss, it’s best that you come into the battle well-prepared, so loot the surrounding area for at least a gun or two, plenty of ammo, and full shields. When you’re ready to face him, head inside to find him walking around wearing his golden suit, at which point he’s likely to notice you, too, and begin firing.

Start the fight off by aiming for his rather large head and dealing out as much damage as possible while staying close to a pillar or wall you can use to hide behind if needed. He’ll charge at you, so make use of this cover to reload and then pop back out for more damage opportunities when he’s doing the same. Beware that he may throw some explosives at you, so don’t hesitate and end up blown to smithereens. If you need to recoup, find a safe spot and heal up quickly, then resume your assault.

When Peter Griffin goes down, you can loot him for his Mythic Hammer Pump Shotgun and a boss medallion you can pick up to constantly regain shields throughout the remainder of the match. You can also use the medallion to open the vault nearby to find some chests and a Weapon Mod Bench.

How to get the Buster Sword in Apex Legends and how it works
Valkyrie holding the Buster Sword

Apex Legends has crossed over with various properties to some degree, but the current Apex Legends x Final Fantasy VII Rebirth event marks the most substantial crossover the popular battle royale has seen thus far. With tons of Final Fantasy VII-themed character and weapon skins, it's pretty much exactly what fans need to get pumped for the release of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth next month. In addition to all of the cosmetics you can buy is the addition of the iconic Buster Sword that can be found and wielded against your opponents during matches. Below, we'll tell you where to find Cloud Strife's weapon of choice and how it works.
How to get the Buster Sword
You can find the Buster Sword in multiple locationsduring each match by looking for bright red beams coming off the ground. When coming upon one of these red beams, you'll see the Buster Sword stuck in the ground, so just walk over and pick it up to add it to one of your weapon slots. Bear in mind that the Buster Sword can also be found in Neutral Care Packages or on the ground next to fallen players who had one, so the chances of you finding one in each match are relatively high.

Once you've equipped a Buster Sword, you'll be able to dish out some pretty impressive damage to foes if you can close the gap on them. The weapon's light attacks will deal 25 damage per hit, while heavy attacks output a whopping 60 damage, meaning just a few good swings from this bad boy can put someone down. You can also launch into the air and slam down on unsuspecting players below, or even use the sword to block incoming attacks by holding down the same button you use for aiming.

The best video game consoles for 2024
A PS5 sits on a table.

It's a fantastic time to be a gamer — when it comes to platform choice, there have never been more options available.

You could grab a PlayStation 5 and enjoy its killer lineup of exclusives or dive into the Xbox Series X's deep game library (not to mention the fantastic deal that is Game Pass). Fandoms aside, the race between the two major consoles is closer than you'd think.

2023 gaming report card: how did PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo score?
The Xbox Series X and PS5

It's been a long year filled with massive games, but we've finally reached the end of 2023. There's no question that this year will be remembered as one of the all-time best for new releases -- and one of the worst for game creators -- but it's been a whirlwind 12 months for the "big three" console makers. PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo all had pivotal years, though in entirely different ways. While the Nintendo Switch took a victory lap, the PS5 entered an experimental era. The Xbox Series X, on the other hand, finally delivered the suite of exclusives fans had been waiting for ... with mixed results.

To reflect on such an eventful year, we've decided to take on the role of teacher and hand each company a final grade for 2023. We took several factors into account here. Exclusive games are a major component of the final grade, naturally, but we also looked at how well each system maintained its wider ecosystem. That includes supporting services like PS Plus and Game Pass and evaluating how new hardware changed how we play.
