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.

Sea of Thieves alliances guide: how to join and benefits
Two ships fighting in Sea of Thieves.

There are ways in which you could play as a solo pirate in Sea of Thieves, but adventuring is so much more fun and rewarding when you're part of a crew. Once you've gotten a handle on how to play the game, taking on voyages and attacking other players with fellow pirates is where the real fun begins. Alliances make it much easier to coordinate and team up with your fellow scallywags, but how you form them and all the benefits they can provide are somewhat obfuscated. It isn't as simple as joining a party through a menu like in other games, so follow our treasure map to learn all about how alliances work in Sea of Thieves.
How to join or start an alliance

Alliances aren't made in menus, but require you to do some work in-game. Just like real pirates, alliances are determined by what flag you're flying. When you're sailing near a ship you want to partner up with, climb up your crow's nest and interact with the flag box. Go to the Alliances tab and choose the Offer Alliance flag. If the other ship is also flying that flag, you can then change your flag to the Join Alliance flag to fully form the alliance. There is no limit on how many ships can be in an alliance at once in one game.

Can you fix the Fortnite servers not responding error?
Nanner Ringer emote in Fortnite

The last thing you want to see when loading up Fortnite for a match with your friends, especially when a big new update is dropping, is to be hit with an error. The worst of which might be the "Fortnite servers not responding" error due to how vague it is. Most people don't know what servers are, let alone what it means when they aren't responding, except that you can't play your game. The question then becomes if you have any power to solve this issue yourself or if you're forced to wait until Epic Games addresses it on its end.
Can you fix the servers not responding error in Fortnite?

The first thing to do when encountering this error in Fortnite is to go straight to the Epic Games Help website or X account (formerly Twitter). This will let you know if it is something on Epic Games' end that is the issue and also keep you updated on the status of when the servers are expected to be fixed. Servers can also be taken down for maintenance or in preparation for major updates, which will also be accounted for here. If this is the case, there's nothing to do but wait until they announce the servers are back up and running.

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!
