Fortnite - Gold Lara Croft skin location: How to unlock the Gold Lara Croft style in Season 6

Tomb raiding in style.

The Gold Lara Croft skin in Fortnite is a golden version of the Lara Croft skin, which you can unlock by climbing the ranks of the Chapter 2 Season 6 Battle Pass.

If you want to unlock this special skin, then you need to complete a small task in-game while wearing your Lara Croft skin. Though you may have to compete with other players to do so.

Once you've completed this task though, the Gold Lara Croft will be yours to wear whenever you like.

Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. What's new? Chapter 3 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include red and blue lines on the Fortnite map and Rebuilding quests, including finding and destroying a IO Build Jammer. You can also learn how to get XP fast in Fortnite.

How to unlock the Gold Lara Croft skin in Fortnite

Thankfully, unlocking the Gold Lara Croft skin in Fortnite is a very easy task to accomplish, though it does require owning this season's Battle Pass.

First, you need to ensure you've unlocked the Lara Croft skin by reaching Tier 15 on the Battle Pass.

After this, or if you've unlocked Lara already, head to your locker and ensure she is the current skin you're wearing.

Now it's time to head into a match!

To unlock the Gold Lara Croft skin, you need to visit Isla Nublada which is located just off the southern coast of the Fortnite map and directly south of the Flushed Factory.

We recommend completing this task at the beginning of a match, because only one player can pick up the required item per match. This means that you may have to compete with other players to unlock this skin and waiting too long could cause you to lose your opportunity.

Chapter 3 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include the Prowler skin, along with the return of jetpacks and Choppas. As we enter Season 2's final month, it's a good idea to know how to get XP fast in Fortnite. You can also complete Resistance challenges, including collecting signal jammers and finding an energy fluctuation. Don't forget about the Seasonal challenges, which include planting saplings and call an Air Strike on a tank. Meanwhile Victory Crowns and the character collection have returned, along with a new Victory Umbrella to earn.

Once you reach the island, head into the ground floor of the small ruin. Inside you'll find Orelia, an NPC, and a gold Assault Rifle.

Picking up this Assault Rifle will transform your skin into the Gold Lara Croft skin. The downside, however, is that Orelia will immediately start attacking you and, since she has a Spire Guardian's Primal Assault Rifle, will most likely kill you.

Luckily, you only need to pick up the gun to unlock the skin, so, even if she does muder you, the Gold Lara Croft skin will still be yours.

If you're having trouble unlocking this skin due to other players getting there first, we recommend waiting until the Battle Bus begins the match by flying directly over the island. This will allow you to fly down to Isla Nublada straight away and, by landing on the highest point of the ruin, you can easily drop down to grab the gold Assault Rifle.
