Fortnite - Family portrait from a shipwreck explained

Where to find the lost paintings.

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

This challenge will see you hunting through the remains of a ship along the coastline of the Fortnite map, so be prepared to visit an out-of-the-way location.

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. What's new? Chapter 3 Season 3 has arrived! New additions include Reality Seeds and Saplings and riding animals, along with the new Battle Pass, characters collection and map changes. It's a good idea to know how to get XP fast 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.

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!
