Fortnite: how to find gold artifacts near the Spire

Fortnite

Season 6 of Fortnite Chapter 2 has just begun and with it the challenges of Week 1 have arrived. Let's find out together how to complete the mission that asks players to go in search of gold artifacts near the Spire.

For the uninitiated, the Spire is one of the new points of interest introduced with Season 6 of the battle royale and anyone who is about to launch the game for the first time since the last update will not be able to see it on the map. As happens at the beginning of every season, the new areas are marked on the map by the classic "???" , which can be replaced by the real name of the point of interest only after the player explores it at least once. To reach the Spire you must therefore land in the center of the map, or in the place where the huge purple floating sphere once stood and which now, as you could discover in the initial mission of Season 6, is occupied by a very high tower.

Your goal is to find three small gold artifacts that are hidden in as many points of the Spire:

The first gold artifact, a blade head, is found in the center of the area, in correspondence with the small shop with an orange curtain behind it.After collecting the first item, turn around and use the stairs to go up to the first floor: open the door and you will find a small golden cat at the far right The third item is another golden blade and can be found to the northwest of the area, at the small door located at the base of the tower.Before we leave you to the movie with all the details on how to reach the collectibles and get a nice some points e Hopefully, we remind you that Neymar Jr will soon arrive as a skin of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6.







Every ‘Fortnite’ Season 6 Map Change: The Spire, Boney Burbs And More

Fortnite’s map has gotten a bit of a makeover this morning. Epic Games is calling Season 6, which kicked off earlier today, “Primal.” The various new locations all certainly have a primal feel to them.


This season, players will no longer be confined to fishing—now you can hunt animals such as wild boar, wolves, chickens and even frogs and use their raw materials for crafting. You can also break cars and use mechanical parts for crafting.


The map itself has undergone quite a change, though most of the Named Locations from last season remain. Here’s the map:

As you can see, the biggest change is the lack of a desert in the center of the map. Orange-leafed trees now blanket the center of the map. This new autumnal forest stretches out in the shape of a star fish. It could possibly continue to spread throughout the season.


There are three new Named Locations and several new landmarks, including towers where you can take on AI “Guardians.” These mini-bosses are reasonably tough and drop good loot. When you kill one, they also drop an orb which you can take to The Spire at the center of the map to exchange for the Mythic Spire Jump Boots.


These smaller towers look like shorter versions of The Spire itself:

Okay, on to the new Named Locations / Points Of Interest.

Boney Burbs replaces Salty Towers just to the west of The Spire. It’s a ramshackle urban area with lots of fun buildings that remind me of the Flotilla aesthetic from earlier this Chapter.

Colossal Crops replaces Colossal Colosseum and the various nearby farms. It’s now a mixture of the Colosseum’s ruins, farmland and more similar ramshackle buildings.


You’ll also find this type of building outside of these locations. I’ve encountered one bridge that had been completely overhauled in this fashion:

I like this look a lot. It also matches the look of the “Primal” weapons in the game, which have something of a Mad Maxian / barbarian sci-fi aesthetic now.

Finally we come to The Spire, the biggest new Named Location. This spot has changed pretty much every season since Chapter 2 began. It was a super hero base, then the ruins of a super base, then the Zero Point and now the Spire.


It’s not just a tower. There are stone buildings around the tower itself, with lots of ziplines running all over the place. It’s pretty cool.


There are various smaller changes also, including dinosaur bones and eggs here and there:

I wonder if we’ll get dinosaurs later this season? Maybe a Turok crossover.


Other than that, there’s not a whole lot. Mando and his ship and the Cantina are all gone, of course. There are likely more subtle changes around the map that I haven’t seen yet. Let me know if you find anything cool.


Here’s the cinematic story trailer for Season 6:
