Season 5 has represented some huge changes for Fortnite as the game has seen its map undergo various physical transformations. New loot has been added and a new theme is here to stay. The Shadow Tracker is one of the new changes and here’s how to get your hands on it.
Who isn’t chomping at the bit to try and wrap their fingers around the almighty trigger of an Exotic Weapon? If you’re not, then that needs to change.
These terrific weapons are very obtainable and you can only get one from trading with one of the map’s NPCs. The greedy people will only accept Gold Bars as payment however, so we’ll let you know how much you need to purchase the Shadow Tracker in Epic Games’ Fortnite.
Where is the NPC?
There are a few steps to getting your hands on the pistol. You’ll need to know where you’re headed and the process required to access it. The first major step is having the Gold Bars in the first place.
All of the Exotic Weapons cost a hefty amount of gold to exchange – 1,225 gold to be exact. So it would be unrealistic to expect to acquire one in every single game of Fortnite you play. But now that we know how much it costs, let’s go about getting it now.
Here’s what you’ll need to do.
Dirty Docks is where our NPC is situated. So head, roughly, to where the marker is placed to arrive at Dirty Docks.
The right warehouse
Located in the building that is perilously close to the water, you’ll see all these boxes and stacks of distinctive shelving.
Speak to Reese
Our merchant is a regular NPC patrolling around the building. You’ll be able to detect them very easily as they will be accompanied by a speech bubble over their head. If you have the right amount of gold, then highlight the Shadow Tracker and buy it.
There you go. One of the game’s rare, Exotic Weapons is now in your possession. May you become proficient with it and hopefully enjoy your victory as a result.

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!

Fortnite leak reveals Deathstroke skin likely coming soon
Some new Fortnite leaks have emerged which point to the arrival of DC’s Deathstroke to the battle royale in Season 6.
Data miners have discovered that Deathstroke will be the next DC Comics character that Epic Games will add to Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 6 in the upcoming Batman crossover.
Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 introduced some major crossovers to the battle royale, including franchises like Predator, and The Walking Dead. Now, Season 6 has already brought Tomb Raider’s Lara Croft and Rebirth Raven in the Battle Pass.
Epic Games are set on bringing another major DC Comics character to The Island, in the form of the supervillain Deathstroke. He will be part of the highly-anticipated Batman crossover, and here’s what we know so far.
Deathstroke skin confirmed for Fortnite Season 6
This information came from notable Fortnite leaker ShiinaBR. Epic Games confirmed that we’d be getting a brand new crossover in the form of a series of six comic books titled Batman x Fortnite: Zero Point.
Each of these issues will come with a redeemable code that grants you access to an exclusive DC-themed skin or cosmetic, and the data miner shared the cover of the fourth issue. It features the villain alongside Catwoman and Batman.
ShiinaBR then wrote that Deathstroke is “100% becoming a skin in Season 6,” so we can expect to see him arrive soon.
The data miner also previously leaked a new Rebirth Harley Quinn skin variant for the game, along with a Batman Point Armored skin which is reportedly set to ship in April.
Deathstroke Glider coming soon
On April 16, 2021, some new leaks emerged which confirmed Deathstroke will also be getting a glider in the game. These came from Fortnite data miners iFireMonkey and FNAssist, who stated that the glider will be a reward for purchasing Issue #4 of the crossover comic.
At the time of writing, it’s not clear how the skin be given to players. It might be a reward for buying issue, as with the Harley Quinn skin. However, at this point it’s just pure speculation, and Deathstroke might become available through other means.
That’s not all, as Epic Games will also be bringing some additional DC content aside from the new skins. There is mass speculation that the Batcave will be added to the Fortnite Season 6 map as a brand-new POI.
We’ll keep checking for any more announcements and updates regarding the Batman crossover in Fortnite Season 6. Once we hear something noteworthy, we’ll be sure to let you know.
