Where to find and defeat Cube Assassin - Fortnite Season 8

To find the Cube Assassin, gamers will need to enter one of the purple Sideways Anomalies. These are scattered around the map and look similar to the tiny purple forests from Season 7.

Once you drop for one of these areas, simply approach the Anomaly and it will suck you in. Then you'll need to get ready to fight the waves of Cube Monsters that appear in your path.

If you're able to successfully clear the second or third wave before the timer runs out, the Cube Assassin should appear. Then battle the assassin, which should be difficult, but rewarding.

Once you defeat the Cube Assassin leave the Sideways Anomaly to claim your reward. The assassin will respawn in a ghost form, and she will then have Cube Monster Parts which you can buy to upgrade your Sideways weapons.
