Remember, you only need to find one artifact from each area, but let’s get into the locations of all of them, so you’re aware. First, there’s one located on the western side in the center, on the bottom floor of one of the ruins. It spawns by a chest.

Second artifact

Next, head east of the previous location on the ground level of a ruin, next to a tree.

Third artifact

If you head north of that, you’ll find the next one underneath an arched structure. It’s underwater, too.

Fourth artifact

And the final one in this area is to the east on a sandy hill.

Once you’ve found one artifact from Coral Castle and one from Stealthy Stronghold, you’ll complete the challenge and earn 24,000 XP for doing so.

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.
