Fortnite challenge guide: Find a family portrait from a shipwreck

As part of Fortnite’s season 5, week 12, you’ll have yet another set of challenges to complete. One of the more mysterious challenges sends you on a quest to find a family portrait from a shipwreck. Before being able to tackle this objective, there are a few things you must do first. Like many challenges throughout season 5, this week’s set comes in stages, meaning you must complete the previous one before moving onto the next.

In this case, you must complete stages 1-3, which require you to deal damage within 15 seconds of gliding; visit Scenic Spot, Gorgeous Gorge, and Mount Kay; and destroy inflatable tubemen across gas stations. Once you’ve completed those stages (in that order), you’ll be able to move on to stage 4, for finding a family portrait from a shipwreck. In this guide, we’ll show you where to find the portrait to complete the challenge with ease.

The first thing you should know about this challenge is that there are multiple portraits and shipwrecks you can visit to complete it. Check the map above for reference (thanks, Fortnite.gg). The two main spots are to the west of Sweaty Sands in the northwestern section of the map, or to the southeast of Catty Corner in the lower right portion of the map. You’ll find portraits at each of these locations, but for the challenge, you only need to collect one of them.

With that in mind, you should pick whichever spot makes the most sense in relation to the path of the Battle Bus at the start. From our experience, the southeastern area is the least busy, so give that one a try if it’s on the way. And it’s best to do this in a Team Rumble match so you can give it another go if you die.

Once you arrive, you’ll find a shipwreck (as mentioned in the challenge’s description), with a ton of debris and items scattered about. Close to the overturned boat on the southern side of this area are some wooden crates, along with a portrait of a woman. Simply interact with it by pressing Square on PlayStation, X on Xbox, or Y on Nintendo Switch to gain credit for this challenge. In this particular location, there’s also a second portrait just to the north, so if you miss the first one for whatever reason, you’ll have another option if you choose to land here.

This will likely be one of the last challenges you complete for the week, as it’s the final one that requires you to visit a mysterious location. Either way, once you interact with one portrait, you’ll earn 20,000 XP.

How many skins are in Fortnite?

With each new Fortnite season comes a slew of new cosmetics to earn through the Battle Pass or to purchase in the item shop. With the game being out for nearly six years, the number of skins in the game has grown to absurd levels. No longer will you run into a match of solo players wearing similar skins. Between regular releases of skins and special event skins involving IPs like Star Wars, Street Fighter, Marvel, and more, every player has a very unique locker full of cosmetics to bust out in a given match.

These days, it's almost more likely you'll run into a skin you've never seen before than a player using the same one as you!

Where to find Vendetta Flopper in Lego Fortnite
Characters fishing in LEGO Fortnite.

The fishing update to Lego Fortnite added, you guessed it, the ability to fish once you've made yourself a rod. Of course, since fish didn't exist in the game before this, an entire school of undersea life needed to be created. Every fish you can catch has a different benefit, from restoring a bunch of health when you eat it to giving you some kind of buff. The rarest and most useful fish is certainly the Vendetta Flopper, making it the most coveted catch in the game. While fishing is still heavily dependent on luck, you won't even have a chance at this fish unless you know where to cast your line.
Where to find the Vendetta Flopper

Before you even attempt to attempt this legendary catch, make sure you're ready with an Epic fishing rod and Epic Bait Bucket to give yourself the best chance at a rare catch. The nest step is to only cast into the glowing purple zones that indicate the presence of rare fish. Fishing in any other part of the water won't yield the Vendetta Flopper we're after.
