How to Get Underboss Skulls in Redfall?
You can get Underboss Skulls by defeating the neighborhood Underboss Vampires. However, before you can fight them, you need to secure a safe house in the neighborhood. This means you need to find a shelter and activate the generator to power up the safe house. Then there is a safe house mission you need to complete before you get the location of the Vampire Underboss.
Once you completed the first safe house mission, you can accept the second mission and that will take you to the neighborhood vampire underboss. They will leave a skull on the ground if you manage to defeat these mini-bosses. These skulls can be collected and used on the Altars hidden throughout Redfall.
