Fortnite: How to Complete Every Indiana Jones Event Quest

Fortnite’s latest collection of crossover cosmetics all pay tribute to Indiana Jones and his adventures. Like any treasure worth having, those collectibles are locked behind adventurous quests.

Even though the current season of Fortnite is called “Vibin,” it might as well be dubbed the “Season of George Lucas” since it allows players to loot Darth Vader’s lightsaber (and earn various Star Wars cosmetics) as well as acquire various Indiana Jones-themed rewards. However, unlike the Darth Vader skin, if you want to look the part of a world-famous treasure hunter, you will need to earn it. 

Each Indiana Jones cosmetic in Fortnite is locked behind a different quest, and not all of those missions are created equal. You don’t exactly need a team of top men working on those quests in order to unlock them, but you can’t rely on an X to mark the spot, either. While some missions are as easy as shooting an enemy in the face, others take players on one heck of a treasure hunt.

Here’s how to complete all of the Indiana Jones quests in Fortnite.

Fortnite: What Are the Two Quest Pages?

These quests are divided into two pages, each with several prizes. The first page includes the Indiana Jones banner icon, the Rogue Archaeology wrap, the Raider’s Relics harvesting tool, the Expedition Bag back bling, and the iconic Indiana Jones skin. Meanwhile, the second page features the Indy’s Dustoff emote, the Indy’s Escape spray, the Doctor Jones emoticon, the Emergency Raft glider, the First Misadventure loading screen, and an alternate Temple Explorer version of the Indiana Jones skin. Unfortunately, you cannot unlock the rewards in any order: you must complete all of the first page’s missions before you can move on to the second.

Fortnite: How to Complete Your First Step

Now that you’re ready to begin the Indiana Jones quests, your first step is to buy a Battle Pass. A tad annoying for rewards that aren’t actually listed in the Battle Pass, but most players already have one and can skip this step. While gamers who don’t own a Battle Pass ticket will miss out on the missions and Indiana Jones-themed rewards, they don’t have to worry about being punched by Jones and thrown out of a Zepplin window, either.

Fortnite: How to Use the Grapple Glove to Swing Off Trees Quest

This quest is fairly self-explanatory. Just loot the Grapple Glove from any chest marked with the grappling icon (which are helpfully stashed under purple shacks with cranes above them). You can find them east of Tilted Towers, east of Shifty Shafts, southwest of Greasy Grove, and northwest of Logjam Lumberyard, just to name a few.

Once you equip the Grapple Glove, just start swinging from trees. Any tree will do, just so long as the quest tracker updates and says you’ve actually grappled off one. Swing from a tree ten times, and you will unlock the Raider’s Relics harvesting tool.

Fortnite: Where to Find the Durrburger Relic Locations

What Indiana Jones-themed adventure would be complete without a good old temple run or tomb raid? Fortnite has several such locations, so you won’t have to venture into uncharted territory to find them.

In order to complete this mission, you have to visit two different remnants of ancient civilizations. Look for a temple and overgrown ruins northeast and southeast of The Daily Bugle, respectively (the second one should be at the northmost part of a cove, just above a triangle-shaped island). The relics you are looking for are located somewhere inside each location.

Once you approach the relics, an exclamation point marker will pop up on your hud, so pinpointing one is fairly easy. However, please note that the items spawn in different locations in every match. If you grab one relic but die before you can retrieve the other, you can’t return to the same coordinates in the next match and expect to find it again.

So long as you can dodge enemy fire long enough to collect both of Durrburger Relics in one match, you will walk away with the Expedition Bag back bling.

Fortnite: How to Complete the Damage Opponents While Riding In or Standing On a Vehicle Quest

This mission is arguably the easiest of the bunch since the instructions are as clear as a crystal skull. Just enter a vehicle or stand on top of one and start shooting. The game will track your progress, and once you deal enough damage (500 to be precise), you will unlock the Rogue Archaeology wrap.

Fortnite: How to Complete the Search Chests at Shifty Shafts Quest

Ah, the classic trope of searching treasure chests. Can you get any more treasure hunty? Not if you want an Indiana Jones-themed cosmetic, you can’t.

As the mission title states, you need to open chests in Shifty Shafts to complete this quest. This winding, abandoned mine can be difficult to navigate, but the game throws you a bone by making the chests glow and emit a telltale sound when you get close (also your HUD lights up with a chest icon to help guide you). While you can find these caches scattered over Shifty Shafts, some easy places to look are inside a locker room, inside mine carts outside of the mine, and inside a dump truck.

After you open five chests, the game will reward you with the Indiana Jones banner.

Fortnite: How to Unlock the Indiana Jones Skin

This isn’t a mission so much as it is a milestone. Just complete the previous quests in any order, and the game will reward you with the Indiana Jones skin. Congratulations, you’re halfway done. Now to the next page!

Fortnite: Where to Find (and How to Open) the Secret Door Past the Main Chamber in Shuffled Shrines

On the first Indiana Jones quest page, you had to find two Durrburger Relics to unlock the Expedition Bag back bling. Well, this quest is basically a much more complicated and difficult version of that quest.

As you may have guessed, this quest requires you to find a hidden door in Shuffled Shrines. When the game says it’s hidden, it means hidden. The first step is, of course, visiting Shuffled Shrines. The location’s puzzle revolves around four runes found in the area. While the locations of the runes don’t change, the symbols on each stone reset after every match (you could say they…shuffle around), and you need to know all four of them to progress. You can find the tablets underground in the southwest portion of the shrine, on a hill to the northwest, near a red tarp in the northern section, and in a wooden pen in the northeast portion. That probably sounds complicated, but the stones thankfully emit a notable humming. If you hear that humming, you’re close.

After you have memorized the runes on the stones, trek to the center of Shuffled Shrines and spin the stones around to match the symbols you found. Assuming you uncovered the stones in the clockwise path listed above, the order you found them will reflect the order of the symbols in front of the door. Once that’s done, the way will open. Just walk down the path while avoiding the large, orange pressure plates (they’re booby-trapped), and congratulations! You’ve made it…to the main chamber. Didn’t think it would be that easy, did you?

In the main chamber, you should see a gold relic. DON’T touch it. In true Indiana Jones fashion, it activates a giant boulder that can crush you. Although, if an enemy is behind you, retrieving the item should deal with them. But what of the secret door? To the right of the relic, you should see a doorway camouflaged with plant life. Walk through it, turn left, and you will hit a dead end. Or should we say you should hit a dead end? Instead, you can whack it with your harvesting tool to open up a secret path. Two chests will be on your right, and the secret door will be on your left. You can leave it at that, as merely finding the door rewards you with the Indy’s Dustoff emote, but odds are the door will make your treasure-hunting senses tingle. Trust them and dance in front of the door to reveal two more chests.

Fortnite: Where to Find a Tent to Stash an Item of Mythic or Exotic Rarity

Unlike most Indiana Jones missions, this one is divided into two parts. Depending on your luck, it might take a few tries to complete.

As the mission title suggests, you need to find or set up a tent and then store a powerful Mythic or Exotic-level item in it. It turns out that is easier said than done (unless you have a guide like this one. of course). You can “easily” buy an Exotic weapon (for 400 bars) from NPCs, such as Bunker Jonesy at The Joneses or Cuddle Team Leader near the Rave Cave, but that isn’t always a guaranteed option. Alternatively, treasure chests are a great source of weapons. Imperial Chests, for instance, can spawn the E-11 Blaster Rifle, which is exactly the kind of Mythic-level firearm you’re looking for. Those kinds of items might belong in a museum, but in order to complete this mission, you only need a tent.

While tents are nowhere near as rare as an E-11 Blaster Rifle, they aren’t guaranteed. You can find some scattered around the map, but some NPCs also sell them for 400 bars. If you did buy a tent, simply set it up by throwing it on the ground, interact with the tent by using the “Manage Storage” option, and then select the item you want to stash. Or, just manage your storage with an unclaimed tent sitting out in the open. Easy peasy, Indy’s Escape spray squeezy.

Fortnite: How to Make Runaway Boulders Roll For 100 Meters In a Single Match

Historically, Indiana Jones has to run away from boulders. In Fortnite, the shoe is on the other foot since he’s the one who unleashes the boulder. Well, at least he can if you’re wearing the Indiana Jones character skin while you complete this mission.

You can find boulders scattered over the Fortnite map. Two of the arguably best ones are perched on hills northwest of Logjam Lotus and east of the Rave Cave. In order to unleash these giant rocks, just knock them loose with some harvesting tool hits and watch them roll. However, line up your shots before you start chipping away. If you knock a boulder in the direction of a long slope, you stand a better chance of completing this mission in one go. If you don’t quite make it, just try again with another boulder. Sooner or later, that Doctor Jones emoticon is as good as yours.

Just a word of warning: try to complete this mission immediately after leaping out of the battle bus. If you jog up a hill towards a boulder, you run the risk of someone else getting it to you first and using it to crush you.

Fortnite: How to Complete the Finish Top 5 in a Match Quest

Yet another self-explanatory mission, as this one simply requires you to beat most other players in a match. With the right combination of skill and luck, you should eventually complete this mission and earn the Emergency Raft glider for your troubles. It’s just as effective while sinking as while crashing.

Fortnite: How to Complete the Damage Opponents With a Pistol Quest

Indiana Jones doesn’t carry many firearms, but one of his most reliable and famous weapons is his trusty revolver. So, it makes sense that one of Fortnite’s final missions would involve that small caliber-type sidearm.

Much like the “damage opponents while riding in or standing on a vehicle” mission, all you have to do for this quest is start shooting with a pistol. Any handgun of any rarity will do, and again, the game will keep track of your progress. Just deal enough damage with a pistol (750 to be precise), and the game will reward you with the First Misadventure loading screen.

While shooting an opponent who is using a sword or other melee weapon won’t win you any bonus points, it will look cool nonetheless.

Fortnite: What is the Reward For Completing Every Indiana Jones Quest?

As with the “Complete Indiana Jones quests” mission, this quest is more of a milestone than an actual mission. Again, all you have to do is complete all the previous quests, and you will receive your final reward: the Temple Explorer variant skin, which lacks the jacket and features an unbuttoned shirt. It’s not exactly a treasure chest, but Indy’s bare chest is still a great reward nonetheless.
