Finding a family portrait from a shipwreck is one of the challenges you can complete during Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5.

Completing this challenge will reward you with a good amount of XP, which will help you unlock new Battle Pass skins.

Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. So what's changed since? Check out the Fortnite Season 8 Battle Pass skins, the new Fortnite map changes and the Victory Umbrella.

The location of the shipwreck in Fortnite.

Once you reach this location, you need to find the family portrait amongst the wreckages which have washed up amongst the beach.

The easiest way to complete this challenge is to find the portrait at the beginning of a match, because it's location is quite out of the way. This means that, while it is close to Catty Corner, you still may have trouble finding the weapons and items you need in the early stages of a match.

Season 8 and The Sideways have arrived in Fortnite. You can now start collecting the Season 8 Battle Pass skins, using the Sideways weapons, partaking in Sideways encounters, investigate the map changes and obtain the new Victory Umbrella! Make a start on the Season 8 questlines, with the IO Heist and finding IO guards and mending locations for Baba Yaga. You can also start collecting colour bottles for Tonna Fish and completing the new character collection.

How to find a family portrait from a shipwreck in Fortnite

The cove where the shipwreck and family portrait are located is to the south-east of Catty Corner, along the coastline of the Fortnite map.

You can easily find this location at the start of a match, which is also the best time to find it, by simply flying to the south-eastern corner of the map and then landing within the cove itself.


Once you've landed there will be three portraits for you to interact with to complete this challenge. Since you only have to interact with one, you can quickly complete the challenge and then continue on with your match.

There are three portraits on the beach.

Remember - you only need to interact with one of the three portraits to complete the challenge!
