How to get Wildguard Relik’s Cloak Gauntlets and MK-Alpha Assault Rifle in Fortnite

There’s someone new prowling around Fortnite Chapter 4, Season 3’s jungle biome and he’s ready to take you on. But defeating him can pose a bit of a challenge if you show up unprepared. While this season didn’t launch with a boss, Epic has ensured that the introduction of Wildguard Relik more than makes up for it, as this foe can teleport around and cause quite a lot of havoc for anyone who faces him in battle. In this guide, we’ll give you all of the information you need to find and fight this opponent, as well as share with you his immensely useful item drops. Let’s dive in.

Wildguard Relik can be found wandering in and around Rumble Ruins, a new point of interest (POI) introduced in Chapter 4, Season 3. This location can be found just left of the center of the map, which already makes it a popular spot for anyone looking for some early-game showdowns, but with the addition of a fresh boss to fight, you can be all but certain that there’s going to be a lot of activity here almost every match. As such, be sure you land and grab a gun quickly to fend off any foes who may be looking to score the kill on Wildguard Relik before you can. When you’re ready to take on the boss, check our tips below.

Wildguard Relik tips

Like most bosses in Fortnite, Wildguard Relik is sporting pretty massive shield and health bars, making him a particularly challenging opponent to beat, especially if you come unprepared. Because of this, it’s highly recommended that you only challenge him after you’ve topped off your shields, picked up at least two decent weapons, and gathered a good bit of ammo. Having some healing items helps too, as you may take some substantial damage in this fight if you find yourself in close quarters with the boss.

When you’re ready to take on Wildguard Relik, start whittling away at his shield with your strongest weapon. Staying around medium range is preferable in most cases, as he hits pretty hard up-close. You may have a bit more trouble hitting him with some weapons at longer ranges – though a DMR can certainly be very useful if you do want to keep your distance. Take note that he’ll teleport around the area frequently and cloak himself, meaning you’ll need to pay extra attention to where he’s moving at all times. Lastly, be sure you look out for the Wildwasp Jars he throws at you, as these can rack up some additional damage if you’re not careful.

Once you’ve defeated Wildguard Relik, he’ll drop some extremely useful items for you to pick up. In addition to some random healing items, you’ll be able to score two Mythic items: Wildguard Relik’s Cloak Gauntlets and Relik’s MK-Alpha Assault Rifle. The former is a special version of the standard Cloak Gauntlets that sports a longer invisibility time upon use and a drastically reduced cooldown of 20 seconds instead of 30. Meanwhile, the latter is a more powerful version of this season’s newest assault rifle that sports a red dot sight and can dish out some significant damage. Both of these items are only available after defeating Wildguard Relik, so picking them up will make you the only person in the match with them equipped.

Is XDefiant free?

XDefiant is a compelling first-person shooter that Ubisoft has positioned as a direct competitor to games like Call of Duty, and it seems to be paying off so far with plenty of buzz about the game. Now that it's available for everyone to dive into, excitement is at an all-time high, so it makes sense that you may be wondering what the hype is all about. Of course, with game prices getting so expensive these days, you may also be wondering whether it's going to cost you to check out XDefiant. We've got some good news for you below.
Is XDefiant free?
Put simply: Yes, XDefiant is a free-to-play game. You can download the game on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, or PC right now and jump into some matches without paying a dime.

However, like similar free live service games, such as Fortnite or Apex Legends, XDefiant is monetized via microtransactions. This means you can purchase things like character and weapon skins, animations, and more using real money — though Ubisoft has promised that these are purely cosmetic and will never grant a competitive advantage to players who buy them.

Is Helldivers 2 coming to Xbox?

Helldivers 2 was a massive hit right out of the gate for developer Arrowhead Game Studios, and the game's popularity has only grown since its release in February of this year. Shedding the top-down perspective of the first Helldivers, this cooperative third-person shooter took the world by surprise by being equally hilarious, fun, and challenging. It demands everyone work together to overcome massive hordes of bugs while also dealing with the fact that one player's slipup could derail the whole mission in the most humorous fashion. It's a total riot, and it's not hard to see why.

However, players on Xbox haven't had an opportunity to join in on the fun, as the game is only available on PlayStation 5 and PC. Since so many modern games have timed exclusivity, you may be wondering if that's the case for Helldivers 2, and we've got the answer for you below.
Will Helldivers 2 ever come to Xbox?
It's very unlikely that Helldivers 2 will ever come to Xbox consoles. The primary reason for this is that Helldivers 2 is published by Sony Computer Entertainment, which is a direct competitor to Microsoft. Sony is known for being very protective of IPs and brands, meaning the company tends to keep its published games off of competing consoles.
