Fortnite Relic Shard locations and where to attune the Relic Shard

It’s time to do some archaeology!

Dig up dirt piles to find the Relic Shard and attune the Relic Shard are part of the fifth set of Vibin’ quests in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3.

In keeping with the release of Indiana Jones skin in Fortnite last week, this challenge sees you doing some archaeology around the island.

Since this challenge is divided into four parts, you’ll receive 28k XP for completing it, which will help you unlock more skins from this season’s Battle Pass.

Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. What's new? Chapter 4 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include the Grind Rails and Kinetic Blades, along with the new Battle Pass, character collection and Eren Jaeger skin. It's a good idea to know how to get XP fast in Fortnite.

Relic Shard locations in Fortnite

To start this Fortnite challenge, you need to establish a Device Uplink at one of two locations around Shuffled Shrines.

Where to start this Vibin' quest.

After doing so, you’ll be tasked with digging up the Relic Shard, but, thankfully, all of the possible Relic Shard locations are situated quite close together. Simply head to the north-eastern corner of Shuffled Shrines - near the roads - to find them.

Where to dig up the Relic Shard.

Once there, you’ll find a pit - with three dirt piles on the eastern side, two on the western and one just beneath the southern wooden pile.

To dig up the Relic Shard, you simply need to hit the dirt piles with either your chosen harvesting tool or a weapon. We found the Relic Shard in the dirt pile beneath the bridge, but this was also the last pile we checked so you may have to destroy all of them.

Digging up the Relic Shard will allow you to easily complete the third step in this challenge - Collect the Relic Shard - and with that done, it’s time to attune the Relic Shard.

Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 is here! It brings a free Lego Insider skin and redemption codes with it, along with a new Victory Umbrella. We've also got pages on new features like Medallions, Weapon Mods, and how to complete a Train Heist. Meanwhile, learn what the best weapons are in the current season, how to get XP fast, and what the best PC settings are to help earn a Victory Crown.

Where to attune the Relic Shard in Fortnite

To attune the Relic Shard, you need to head to the rock outcrop directly opposite the Reality Tree located in the desert. This location is also directly south-west of Rocky Reels.

Where to attune the Relic Shard.

Once there, climb up the side of the cliff which is opposite the Mancake-themed landmark. You’ll know you’re in the right place when you see both a plinth and the landmark.

Now all you have to do is interact with the plinth to attune the Relic Shard and complete this Vibin’ quest! In the next quest, you'll find yourself blocking some pipes.
