The Riot Husky is an enemy in Fortnite’s Save the World mode. It uses what appears to be a fridge door with a small peeking window on the top door. Attacking this enemy from the front does almost nothing, so attacking it from the sides or back while it may be distracted by another player or stunned is generally useful. If not stunned nor distracted, it will face itself (along with its shield) towards the player, making it a pretty hard enemy to defeat if not dealt with properly; after a really high ammont of damage dealt tho the shield th Riot Husky will get stunned for a second; the shield will protect a lower proportion of the body in that moment

The Riot Husky will attack with the shield knocking back the player and prioritize them instead of damaging the objective

Ranged piercing weapons can penetrate through the fridge door shield; i.e., Dragon's Roar, Ghost Pistol, Helium Shotgun, Obliterator, Neon Sniper Rifle, Noble Launcher, and Xenon Bow.

Tactics

The Riot Husky can be hit easily with area damage weapons, such as Rocket Launcher; using Sound Wall trap will make it dance losing temporary the shield and making easier to kill, attacking from higer zones (like one tile upper than the Riot Husky) will allow you to hit easier it since the shield will never lift, neither when he is climbing a ramp; avoid attacking with melee weapons since his shield will deny all the damage
