It’s the start of a new Fortnite season, meaning there are lots of new things to do in Epic’s battle royale. Starting with Fortnite season 6, week 1, you’ll have a handful of new challenges to complete. With the beginning of a new season, you’ll find substantial map changes, one of which is a new location called The Spire. This area is home to three golden artifacts, and you need to collect all of them to complete one of this week’s challenges.
These golden artifacts are cleverly hidden around The Spire, but we’ve got the locations of all three of them. In this guide, we’ll walk you through where to find all three artifacts, along with tips to make it as easy as possible. Here’s where to find golden artifacts near The Spire in Fortnite.

Where to find golden artifacts near The Spire
Above is a map featuring the general locations of the three artifacts at The Spire (courtesy of Fortnite.gg). Since this area has a lot of verticality, the map isn’t as useful as you’d expect, but it’s better than nothing. To make things easier, we highly recommend attempting this challenge in a Team Rumble match; that way, you can spawn back in if you get eliminated. It also seems to be less busy at The Spire during a Team Rumble match than if you play one of the battle royale modes, so keep that in mind, as well.
And as with most challenges, this one’s cumulative, meaning your progress carries over from match to match. So don’t worry if you get eliminated before collecting all three since you can pick up where you left off in a separate match. And with that, let’s get into the locations of each artifact below.
You can collect the artifacts in any order, but the first one we grabbed is located in a small room just beneath the base of The Spire itself. It’s on the north side of this area, and it’s found right next to the stone steps that lead up the monument. You’ll have to break down the wooden wall that leads to this llama artifact.
Next up, head to the lower level of The Spire on the eastern side where you’ll find a few different stands. The large stand on the north side of this area features a llama on the ground, next to a basket.
Finally, head up the steps on the south side of the previous area and you’ll come to the next floor. Turn right and then you’ll come to a large room where the golden artifact can be found in a small area next to some barrels. This time, it’s a hula cat instead of a llama. After you’ve collected all three (in any order), you’ll complete the challenge and gain 24,000 XP for your troubles.
