How to get RPG and Mythic AK in Fortnite Season 5

Contrary to popular belief, there is another mythic weapon in Fortnite Season 5: the Mythic AK. Here’s where you can find it along with an RPG.

Fortnite Season 5 has another Mythic weapon hiding in the swamp. Here’s how to get a Mythic AK and RPG in Fortnite Season 5.

When Fortnite Season 5 was first released, players assumed that The Mandalorian was the only NPC carrying a Mythic weapon. After all, he was the star of the Battle Pass and had the most distinct location on the map.

After a few days of playing, players discovered that there’s another weapon hiding outside of Slurpy Swamp. Ruckus is wandering around Hydro 16 holding the Mythic AK from Season 3 along with one of the only RPGs in the game.

Naturally, this is a potent combination and a force to be reckoned with. The good news is that Ruckus doesn’t seem to spawn right away. In our experience, he waits about a minute before spawning, giving players a chance to land, loot, and duke it out with one another

Ruckus is just another boss in Fortnite. He doesn’t offer bounties, quests, or rewards. Don’t overthink it; jump in and eliminate him.

You can find Ruckus patrolling anywhere in the Hydro 15 area – the factory just below the Dam to the east of Slurpy Swamp. Finding and killing him is a part of the weekly challenges, as well, so you can walk away with some free XP to go with your RPG and Mythic AK.

How to get the gold Lara Croft Anniversary skin in Fortnite

Fortnite has added a mysterious island off the coast of Flush Factory that unlocks a secret Lara Croft skin variant.

fortnite how to unlock gold lara croft

Lara Croft is one of the Battle Pass crossover characters in Fortnite Season 6, and she has quite a few skin variants. However, the gold Lara Croft Anniversary skin can only be unlocked through specific conditions.

Seeing as Fortnite Season 6 is all about adventuring in primal settings, Lara Croft was the perfect candidate for collaboration. She can be unlocked by reaching tier 15 of this season’s battle pass, and her anniversary variant is unlocked at tier 25. She also has a classic variant that is unlocked by completing weekly challenges.

There is also a golden version of the anniversary skin that hasn’t been unlockable until now. Unlike other gold skin variants, gold Lara Croft isn’t obtained by reaching a higher level. Instead, players must complete a secret task to unlock this hidden skin variant.

Unlocking gold Lara Croft skin

With Fortnite v16.40, a new island has emerged from the sea south of Flush Factory. This tiny island is the home of Orelia, the female version of the Oro skin. Orelia will help players by giving them her golden assault rifle, but she will give Lara Croft an additional gift.

The island players need to visit is marked on the map below. If players visit the island wearing the Lara Croft skin and take the assault rifle sitting on the pedestal, they will unlock the gold Lara Croft Anniversary skin after the match. It’s as simple as visiting the island and picking up a weapon.

The only catch is that this island will be heavily populated with players who are also attempting to unlock the skin. And seeing as there is only one gun available, waiting for players to disperse is not an option. Players will have to race to the island to be the first to grab the gun.

However, it only takes one time to unlock the gold Lara Croft skin forever. It would be neat to see Fortnite offer more ways like this to unlock gold skin variants in the future. Reaching level 225 in a season isn’t something that is easily done, and this method offers a similar challenge.

All safe locations in Fortnite Season 6

Fortnite’s gold bars can be hard to find in large quantities, but knowing where every safe is located makes raking up the cash easy.

Fortnite safe locations guide

Gold bars are one of the most useful resources in Fortnite because of what they allow players to buy, yet they can be hard to obtain. The best way to get large amounts of gold is by knowing all of the Fortnite safe locations.

Epic Games introduced gold bars into Fortnite at the start of Chapter 2 Season 5. This currency could be given to NPCs around the map in exchange for materials, items, and even Mythic weapons. However, players would have to build up a hearty supply of gold before making any big purchases.

Gold bars could be obtained by breaking open furniture, completing tasks from NPCs, or even by looting eliminated players. As well, players could take up bounties and earn large amounts of gold by eliminating their targets. But the best way to earn gold bars is by finding and opening gold safes.

Every gold safe location in Fortnite

Safes are the fastest way of obtaining gold in Fortnite, but they also come with their downsides. Safes can be hard to find as they don’t give off as loud a sound as chests do, and they don’t glow either. They also take between 10 to 15 seconds to open which is much longer than a chest or ammo crate.

They also spawn in various locations around the map, but they aren’t guaranteed to spawn each round. Like chests, they only have a chance to spawn in their designated locations. However, thanks to the interactive map at Fortnite.gg, players can easily find where each safe should spawn. Here is a map showing all of the Fortnite safe locations.

While it might take a long to time open each safe, it’s well worth the wait. Each safe will give players 800 gold bars once opened which is a lot when compared to the prices of items. Even if players aren’t searching for safes specifically, they should stop to open the ones they come across. Since Mythic weapons cost 500 gold bars, one safe is enough to cover the cost and then some.

How to unlock free Lantern Trials rewards in Fortnite

The Fortnite Lantern Trials is a new event that rewards players with exclusive cosmetic simply for playing the game.

Fortnite Lantern Trials

A new event has started in Fortnite allowing players to earn cosmetic rewards simply by playing the game. Here’s how players can earn all three Fortnite Lantern Trials rewards.

The Fortnite Lantern Trials is a new event meant to celebrate Ramadan. This period of time is observed by Muslims worldwide as a period of fasting. Regarded as one of the Five Pillars of Islam, Ramadan is observed annually for a duration of 29 to 30 days.

Epic Games is helping observe Ramadan by rewarding players with themed cosmetics. There aren’t any flashy challenges or quests that need to be completed. Unlocking all three cosmetics is as simple as playing Fortnite for a few hours.

Unlocking Fortnite Lantern Trials rewards

Players will first need to sign-up to start gaining progress to unlocking the rewards. Simply visit https://lanterntrials.fortnite.com/en/ and log in to your Epic Games account. This will automatically sign the player up and start tracking their progress.

Afterwards, players will just need to play Fortnite. Yes, it’s really that simple. Every 40 minutes that a player spends in a game of Fortnite will translate to one Lantern Trials badge earned. Players will earn rewards at tiers 1, 6, and 11 (see chart below).

Cosmetic NameBadge TierTime Played
Lantern SprayBadge 10 minutes
Enlightened Warrior EmoticonBadge 63 hours 20 minutes
Lantern Glow WrapBadge 116 hours 40 minutes

The time played is only counted in regular Solos, Duos, Trios, and Squads modes. Time isn’t counted when playing Arena, LTM, or Creative modes. This also means that players can’t sit in the lobby for 7 hours to earn the rewards.

Despite almost seven hours being a long time to play Fortnite, the Lantern Glow Wrap is worth it. The animated wrap is an exclusive reward meaning players won’t be able to get it any other way. Same goes for the spray and emoticon, but the wrap is truly the best cosmetic item up for grabs.

There isn’t a current end-date for Fortnite Lantern Trials, but player should hop in and earn these rewards before they’re gone forever. A great way to flew on opponents is by showing off the hard-earned Lanter Glow Wrap.
