Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 6’s Battle Pass brought fans multiple Lara Croft skins. No one expected her to show up in all gold though. No worries. Our guide below details how to get this special skin.
Don the Lara Croft Skin
In order to unlock the golden anniversary skin, you’ll first have to equip the basic Lara Croft skin. We assume it’s to keep with the theme of her exploring forgotten tombs. Whatever the case, don her “threads” before jumping into a match.
Visit Isla Nublada to Find Orelia
The v16.40 update introduced a new island called Isla Nublada to Fortnite. Located just south of Flush Factory, this small area comes complete with its own NPC and set of ruins. The new NPC, named Orelia, isn’t all that important to this particular mission. The golden SCAR assault rifle that Orelia guards is important, though, as you need it to unlock Lara’s golden anniversary skin.
Pick Up The Golden SCAR
Dive down to Isla Nublada as Lara and retrieve the golden SCAR. This is easier said than done. The first hurdle being rival players. Only one person can pick up the SCAR per match. Killing the person who picks it up and taking it for yourself afterward, doesn’t work. We recommend getting as close to Isla Nublada as possible before diving out of the bus. If it happens to spawn on the same side of the map, immediately dive and head straight down, only adjusting your descent once you’ve opened your parachute. Head to the south-western side of the island – we found that the entrance to the ruins on that side allows for quicker access to the SCAR.
Equip the Gold Lara Croft Skin
Once you’ve beaten the horde and collected the golden SCAR, you’ll be able to equip the gold Lara Croft skin. All you need to do is go to the locker, pick Lara, and then select the golden alternate style. Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 6 comes to a close next month. It’s possible we’ll see more special skins and challenges before then. Let us know in the comments which skins you want us to make guides for.
