Season 6 of Fortnite continued the trend of past seasons, with characters from popular video game franchises becoming characters in the high-profile battle royale title. One of these characters is Lara Croft, whose location can be found on the Fortnite map.
Lara Croft is currently one of the non-playable characters that players can find wandering around specific parts of the map with quests players can accept and complete to earn items. One of the biggest perks of finding her location is the ability to get her Grappler Bow for use in your battles.
This previously leaked exotic weapon has been on the minds of the community for some time, so there is no doubt that plenty of players will be making their way to this well-known character to get their hands on this powerful item.
Fortnite Lara Croft Grappler Bow Location
Players who are looking to acquire this exotic weapon will need to head to Stealthy Stronghold. This is where you will find the area where you can purchase this exotic item.
All that you need to do to add it to your inventory is walk and speak with the character who will require you to spend a total of 500 Gold Bars that can be collected through various ways.

How to complete Fortnite Season 6 Week 6 challenges
Fortnite Season 6 has more weekly challenges for you to complete, so here’s how you can get them done quickly.
The latest batch of Fortnite weekly Quests will be arriving soon, so here’s everything you have to do to earn a ton of XP in Season 6 Week 6.
Fortnite players have the opportunity to earn some extra XP by completing a series of weekly challenges in the Battle Pass. While Week 5’s challenges focused on new features like modding vehicles, things are different in Week 6.
The new challenges mainly revolve around a variety of different tasks like completing bounties, visiting different POIs on the map, and dishing out high amounts of damage with makeshift weapons.
Here’s how you can get these done.
Fortnite Season 6 Week 6 Quests
Thanks to the efforts of some Fortnite leakers, we can see what the Week 6 challenges will be before they go live on Thursday, April 22 at 9am EST/ 2pm BST.
Here’s the full list of Fortnite Season 6 Week 6 Quests:
- Open safes (3)
- Complete bounties (3)
- Reach max shields in different matches (3)
- Stay within 20m of a player for 3 seconds while wearing a prop disguise (3)
- Hit from 50m or greater with a bow (1)
- Complete the swimming time trial at Weeping Woods or Coral Castle (1)
- Visit Fancy View, Rainbow Rentals, and Lockie’s Lighthouse (1)
Turning into a prop is a new addition in Season 6, and you can do it by visiting NPCs that sell this ability. Luckily, you can find many of these around the map, but we recommend heading to Crustina since she has the least amount of player traffic around her.
You can find her in the Pizza Pit just north of Colossal Crops. She’s the giant tomato standing behind the counter. Interact with her, and spend 75 Gold Bars to get the ability. If you don’t have that amount yet then there are various ways to earn it.
You can reach max shields by finding and consuming shield potions in a single match. Then all you need to do is repeat that process during two other matches to complete this Epic Quest.
Fortnite’s v16.20 update brought two new bows to the battle royale, and you can use the Splinter Bow to hit your foe from a distance of 50m or more. This weapon will deal 100 damage to targets, making it a useful tool to have in your inventory
We’ll make a separate guide on completing the swimming time trial at Weeping Woods or Coral Castle once that challenge goes live. Completing each of these Epic Quests will net you 24,000 XP, as usual
There is also a Legendary Quest to complete for extra XP, which requires you to deal damage with makeshift weapons. You can craft these by using mechanical parts, but they deal low damage and hold low ammo, so make each shot count.
The whole challenge consists of five stages, and you’ll get 35,000 XP for completing the first, and 24,500 for the rest. You’ll have a limited time period within which you can complete this Legendary Quest, so be sure to hop to it.
That covers everything for Week 6! We’ll update this article with more information after the challenges go live, so stay tuned!
