When you hop into a game of Fortnite, your first task is to find powerful weapons that you can use to eliminate opponents. Epic’s battle royale has plenty of guns available, including Exotic and Mythic weapons that could help you secure that Victory Royale.

You also have the option of improving your weapons by visiting Upgrade Benches, and one of the Fortnite Sideways Showdown Week Quests requires you to use these to upgrade a Sideways Weapon.

Where to find & open the secret door at Shuffled Shrines in Fortnite: Location & guide

Here’s how to find and open the secret door at Shuffled Shrines to complete Fortnite’s Indiana Jones Questline.

The brand-new Shuffled Shrines POI has appeared with the 21.20 update and features an Indiana Jones-style secret room to investigate. You’ll need to find it and get inside to complete the Indy Quests, so here’s how.

Fortnite players have been desperate to finally unlock the Indiana Jones Battle Pass skin, and it finally went live with the 21.20 update. Alongside Indy, there’s the brand-new Shuffled Shrines POI just west of the Joneses.

Shuffled Shrines has a secret door that players need to open to unlock the Indiana Jones Quests, and in true Indy fashion, there’s a puzzle to solve and deadly traps to avoid. Here’s how to solve the puzzle and open the secret door to complete the Fortnite Indiana Jones Quests.

Fortnite players looking to open the secret door at Shuffled Shrines will need to solve the stone puzzle.

There will be four stones around Shuffled Shrines, each with a different color-coded symbol. Starting on the south side of Shuffled Shrines, head clockwise around the area, marking down the symbol displayed on each shrine. While the stones will always be in the same place, the symbols will change each match.

You can check out their locations on the map below, and you’ll be able to hear them as you approach.

Once you’ve got all four symbols, head to the secret door in the middle of the POI. You’ll find four stones with the symbols, and use your interact button to have the stones display the symbols in the order that you visited them.

Once all four are correct, the stones will start glowing and the door will open. As this is an Indiana Jones Quest and POI, you’ll need to be careful of the traps that line the corridor as you approach the artifact.

Once you reach the main chamber where the artifact sits on a plinth (picking this up will give 250 Gold), look to your right and you’ll notice a doorway masked by a large bush.

Head through the door and go right to the end of the corridor and you’ll find two Mythic chests and you’ll complete the “Find the secret door past the main chamber in Shuffled Shrines” Indiana Jones Quest and unlock the Indy’s Dustoff Emote. But be careful, you can be squished by a boulder on your way out.

Where to find The Ruins in Fortnite: Durrburger Relic location

Here’s how you can find The Ruins landmark location on the map and collect the Durrburger Relic in Fortnite.

The Ruins in Fortnite

If you’re wondering where you can find The Ruins and collect a Durrburger Relic for the Fortnite Indiana Jones Quests then we’ve got you covered with the exact location on the map.

The Fortnite map features a variety of different locations for you to visit, and these contain different loot, objectives, NPCs, along with other fun surprises that you can discover after exploring.

However, a few landmarks aren’t marked on the map, and this can make things difficult if you need to visit a location for challenges. The Ruins is one of these locations, and we’ll go over how you can find it and complete an Indiana Jones Quest.

The Ruins Fortnite location

You can find The Ruins just southeast of The Daily Bugle on the northeast side of the Fortnite map. This location is marked by an ancient grey structure that makes it difficult for players to miss.

Since this landmark is located on the edge of the island, it will get enveloped by the storm early on during a match, so we recommend landing there directly and then collecting whatever loot you require right away.

Once you’ve got what you need, you can rotate to another location from there. To make things much easier for you, we’ve marked the exact location of The Ruins landmark on the Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3 map below.

One of the new Indiana Jones Quests tasks you with visiting The Ruins in order to collect the Durrrburger Relic. We were able to find this item next to a tree on the middle level of this landmark.

Simply interact with the item when you see it and you’ll be on your way to unlocking the new Expedition Back Bling that’s part of the Indiana Jones cosmetics set. You’ll just need to head to The Temple and collect the Durrburger Relic from there as well.

Fortnite leakers discover Dragonball Z crossover in game files

According to new Fortnite leaks, Epic Games might be bringing a Dragonball Z crossover with new cosmetics to the battle royale.

Leakers are suggesting that Epic Games have entered a new collaboration that is set to bring cosmetic items and outfits from the Dragon Ball Z series to Fortnite.

Epic Games have brought a plethora of different crossovers to Fortnite, with popular fictional characters like Spider-Man and Indiana Jones becoming available as cosmetic skins for players to unlock.

The recent Naruto crossover added new anime skins to the battle royale title, and one leak is suggesting that Epic Games have plans to bring even more fan-favorite anime characters in the future.

Goku in DragonBall Super

The v21.20 update added a new Stamina Prop to Fortnite’s Creative mode, and this new addition closely resembles Capsule Corp from Dragon Ball Z because of its logo and color scheme.

The Capsule Corporation is a company that was founded by Bulma’s father in the Dragon Ball Z series. Notable leaker ‘HYPEX’ pointed out that the Stamina Prop is not only similar to Capsule Corp but also has outlines like other anime cosmetics.

This has caused mass speculation that Goku and other Dragon Ball Z characters might be making their way to Fortnite in a future update. This would be a great follow-up to the Naruto crossover in the game.

At the time of writing, it’s unclear how Epic Games plan to bring Dragonball Z characters to Fortnite. We might see something similar to the recent Nindo challenges in the Naruto Rivals event.

It’s worth keeping in mind that these are currently just leaks, and this information has not been confirmed by the developers themselves. We’ll keep checking for any official announcements of a DBZ crossover in Fortnite.
