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.

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.

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.

The Alien Invasion has started, and here is how players can get abducted by UFOs in Fortnite.

Since the patch notes for v16.50 were revealed, we knew Aliens were on their way to Fortnite. We just didn’t know when they would arrive. Players suspected they would appear on Tuesday, June 1, as new content usually goes live on Tuesdays. However, it wouldn’t be until later that evening that the first players would be abducted.

Since then, various players have claimed they have been abducted by aliens. Many people are posting footage on Reddit and Twitter of their abductions. These extraterrestrial encounters have left many players wondering, how can we get abducted as well?

Getting abducted by Fortnite UFOs

While the stories and clips of players getting abducted are flooding social media, they aren’t as prevalent in-game. Right now, getting abducted by UFOs in Fortnite is a rare occurrence. There is speculation that the frequency of alien abductions will increase as we get closer to the end of the season. However, that has yet to be seen.

Abductions will occur randomly during a match, and can happen at any time and at any location. There is no way for a player to trigger an abduction. In short, players just have to play normally and hope they occur.

There are a few ways to make getting abducted easier. First off, abductions won’t happen in competitive playlists so players will need to play normal game modes. Instead of hopping into public lobbies, players can use the Battle Labs mode. Alien abductions can happen in Battle Labs which allows you to play without the fear of getting eliminated by other players.

When an abduction is about to happen, a bright green beam of light will target a nearby player or players. It will take a few moments after the light appears, but then the targeted players will lift from the ground. They will then vanish and be teleported to another point on the map with their health restored. It may take a while for a player to get abducted, but let us know down below if you’ve been lucky enough to be chosen.

These challenges aren’t difficult, but they will take some time to complete. Even for the most skilled players, these challenges will take five rounds or more. However, a free cosmetic set as sick as the Ruby Shadow set is worth the effort.
