So, you’ve managed to track down the elusive Vampire Kado Thorne. But wait, before you rush in, have some strategy in mind. As going in without a plan is like trying to eat spaghetti with a straw – messy and not very effective.

First and foremost, make sure you have strong gear in your inventory with some serious firepower. Those fancy weapons you’ve been hoarding are now required to whip them out. The best weapons to use in this combat are Combat SMG or the new Wood Stake Shotgun because of their unique strength against vampire enemies. Moreover, use the terrain to your advantage, and try to get the drop on Kado. You can use the pillars standing there to protect yourself from the boss’s damage and give yourself a chance to strike back.

Kado’s not just a regular vampire; he’s got some tricks up his sleeve. Stay on your toes, and if you see him winding up for a special move especially when his chest glows red, dodge, duck, dip, dive, and… dodge. Don’t become an easy target. Keep moving, jump around, and make yourself as unpredictable as possible. Keep an eye on your health bar; if things are looking dicey, don’t be shy about retreating and healing up. There’s no shame in living to fight another day (or another minute).

What Thorne’s Vampiric Blade Can Do?

Getting Thorne’s Vampiric Blade

The blade has a knack for siphoning health from foes with each strike, returning vitality to its wielder, much like a vampire drawing sustenance from its victims. It’s a mythical sword that reminisces the Kinetic Blade from previous seasons, allowing not only the usual slashing but also a dashing forward with a charged attack for that extra oomph.

Thorne’s Vampiric Blade boasts a Damage per Second (DPS) of 70/60 and a fire rate of 1. Its magazine size is three, with structural damages of 400 (for Dash), 75 (for Slash), and 150 (for Jump Slash). It’s not just about slashing aimlessly; it comes with a strategy. Its basic attack, known as the Knockback Slash, encompasses two swift slashes. The second slash has a bit of a ‘throwback’ vibe as it sends opponents reeling backward. And if they’re sent back from a considerable height, they’re in for some fall damage. For a more aggressive approach, there’s a Dash Attack, which, well, dashes toward the foes to deal damage.

Whether you’re a seasoned Fortnite player or just trying to explore things, wielding Thorne’s Vampiric Blade is sure to bring a blend of power, strategy, and a hint of vampiric satisfaction to your playthrough. Plus, it’s part of the Fortnitemares 2023 event, making it a spooktacular choice for the Chapter 4 Season 4.
