How to raid an artifact from Stealthy Stronghold & Coral Castle in Fortnite

The last set of weekly challenges for Fortnite Season 6 requires players to raid an artifact from Stealthy Stronghold and Coral Castle.

Coral Castle in Fortnite

The last round of weekly Fortnite challenges have been released, one of which requires players to raid an artifact from two of the game’s largest POIs.

It’s the last week of Fortnite Season 6 which means the last set of weekly challenges have been released. This also means that players only have a few days left to level up enough to get the enlightened skins. One of the best ways to level up is by completing each of the weekly challenges.

Some challenges are much easier than other, and some of the worst are the ones that require players to fetch specific items. One of the last weekly challenges this season requires players to raid an artifact from Stealthy Stronghold and Coral Castle. There are three artifacts at each POI, but players need only collect one from each.

Artifact locations at Stealthy Stronghold & Coral Castle

Below are two enlarged images of Stealthy Stronghold and Coral Castle. These are two of the largest POIs on the map, and they are also close to one another. If a player drops and starts at Coral Castle, they can quickly swim over to Stealthy Stronghold and complete this quest in one match.

These artifacts that players have to find can be a bit tricky to pinpoint. However, each one is surrounded by a glowing blue aura which makes them easier to see. They also emit a mysterious noise when nearby. If a player goes to the points marked on the maps below, they will find the artifacts in no time.

In order to raid an artifact, players will need to approach the artifact and press the action button/key. Once they’ve raided an artifact from each location, the quest will be complete. Completing this quest will reward the player with 24k experience points.

Those looking to unlock the gold enlightened skins or the Battle Pass skin variants will want to complete as many challenges as they can. Season 6 of Fortnite ends in just a few days on June 7th. Once the season ends, these skins will be gone forever.

Luckily, the folks at Fortnite.GG has an interactive map of all of the NPCs in Season 8.

Here’s a map of all of the NPCs in Fortnite Season 8. We’ll keep this updated over the course of the season as more appear or are found around the map. Bigfoot, for instance, is missing from this list. We’re not sure whether that’s because he isn’t there or just hasn’t been found yet.

  • Disguised man: offers a prop disguise
  • Pink Rift: allows you to activate a Rift
  • Yellow Cloud: Reveal Future Storm Circle
