Fortnite challenge guide: Visit Ghost and Shadow ruins

Fortnite season 6, week 11 is underway, and with it comes a new batch of challenges for you to complete. This week’s challenges aren’t too difficult, though there are a couple you’ll want to be aware of before jumping in. One in particular requires you to visit Ghost and Shadow ruins, and there are three unmarked locations you’ll need to go to on the map. Unfortunately, they’re both spread out, so it might be tough to visit all three in one match.

The nice thing is that your progress does carry over from match to match, so you don’t have to worry about visiting all three in a single game. In this guide, we’ll show you where to find all three locations to complete the latest challenge. Here’s how to visit Ghost and Shadow ruins in Fortnite.

Locations of Ghost and Shadow ruins


Above is a map (thanks, featuring the three locations you’ll need to visit for this challenge. We highly recommend attempting this in Team Rumble so you can get around the map easier. Each time you’re eliminated in this mode, you spawn back in the air, making it easier to glide to your next objective. Otherwise, you’ll need to use a vehicle to get across the map, which sometimes isn’t feasible in the heat of battle.

You’ll also want to select your route based on the formation of the storm. If there’s a location that will soon be overtaken by the storm, you should head there first to get it out of the way — hopefully allowing you time to reach the others before the match is over.

As with most challenges, you’ll gain credit for each location in any order, which makes things a little easier. Below are more details on each of the three locations.

When we attempted this challenge, we opted to go to the ruins in the northwest first. These are located right at Shark Island, north of Coral Castle. Head to the center of this area to gain credit.

Second ruins

The second ruins we recommend visiting are the ones by Catty Corner. They’re found right at the base of the mountain, close to the gas station.

Third ruins

Finally, head northeast of the previous spot, alongside the shore, to find the last ruins, just north of Retail Row.

After you’ve visited the third ruins, you’ll earn credit for completing the challenge and gain 24,000 XP for your battle pass. It’s not a difficult challenge; it’s just a bit of a pain since you have to travel across opposite ends of the map.

The best places to land in Fortnite right now
Character landing in Fortnite.

Survival is key in Fortnite, and it all starts by picking the best starting location. Even if you're an expert player, your likelihood of coming out on top is greatly diminished if you start off on the wrong foot -- whether it be at a barren location with no loot or a hot drop that could lead to a swift death. As part of Fortnite Chapter 4, Season 3, there's no shortage of fantastic landing spots, but which one you choose comes down to your skill and preference, and you're going to want to pick the right one if you want to win Fortnite. So join us as we show you the best Fortnite landing spots for veterans, beginners, and everyone in-between.
The best places to land in Fortnite

Before jumping into the list, it's important to be aware of what makes a good landing spot. Sure, any place with decent loot might serve you well, but there's more to consider than that. Does a spot have a consistent chest/loot spawn? Are there guaranteed materials? Is it close to other places of interest (POI)s? Is it out of the way? Of course, loot is the most important aspect, but it does you no good to have a stacked loadout if you're stuck in the storm. These recommended landing spots all have some degree of consistency and fantastic loot, and typically have some quirk that makes them effective depending on your playstyle.

Fortnite Reality Augments: full list and how to use them
Fortnite Zero Builds key art.

Every new chapter of Fortnite is a massive event. While seasonal changes bring plenty of minor tweaks and additions, it's almost always when a new chapter rolls around that major overhauls or new mechanics are introduced. Fortnite Chapter 4 was no exception, and aside from the extreme changes the island underwent, it brought one very important change to gameplay that makes a huge difference when going for that elusive victory royal (it isn't easy to win Fortnite, after all).

Augments, well, augment the game. There are a few challenges that somewhat introduce what these are, but they leave out almost all the important details for you to find out on your own. Augments need to be considered, and deeply understood, not only for when you get them yourself but to know what new tricks your opponents could have up their sleeves. Before you get taken by surprise, here's a complete breakdown of how to unlock augments and how they work in Fortnite.
What are augments in Fortnite?
Augments, or Reality Augments, are a new perk system introduced into Fortnite. There are currently 20 augments in the game, but there are 32 total that cycle in and out with each Season. You can get access to multiple augments during a single match, but augments do not carry over after a match is finished, whether you win or lose. These perks can range from modifying certain weapon types to granting buffs for performing actions, and much more. There are no bad augments, so you will want to get as many as possible. Augments also have their own tab in your menu where you can see which ones you've had so far to track your progress using them all.

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!
