'Fortnite': Find Golden Artifacts Near the Spire Locations for Week 1 Challenges

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 begins today, so the latest round of Weekly Challenges has arrived a little early. In this guide, we reveal all three locations you can use to find three Golden Artifacts near the Spire. Want to know where to go to get those new tiers easily and fast? Then you've come to the right place.

Fortnite Golden Artifact near the Spire locations

Before getting to the locations of the Artifacts themselves, it's worth getting acquainted with where the Spire is. The Spire is a new addition to the Season 6 map that essentially takes the place of the Authority or center island in previous seasons.

Golden Artifact location 1: Start by landing at the tiny yellow square in the bottom-right corner of the Spire structure on the minimap. You'll come to a tower that looks like this.

'Fortnite' Week 1 Challenges send players on a search for Golden Artifacts. Your quest starts by going up this staircase in the southeast corner. 'Fortnite' is available now on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Switch, PC and mobile. Epic Games

Go up the stairs, take a left and then a right. You'll see a little tent with a light coming from it. Under the tent is this llama statue that you can collect.

To get there, backtrack the way you came in and go up the staircase. Enter the door you see on the right after going up a single flight. Straight ahead you'll see another glowing spot with a Meowscles Artifact.

Golden Artifact location 3: The third and final Golden Artifact is located here on the map.

To reach that location, go out the door you just entered and go up the staircase in front of you. Once you get there, take the other, smaller staircase to your left and you'll come to a door and window with Y-shaped symbols on them. Pass through that door, go past the staircase and through the entryway straight ahead. You'll see another staircase on your left. Go up it.

Immediately to your left, at the top of that staircase, is an entryway that may be boarded up. Whack through the wood with your Pickaxe, and you'll find a Chest and the third Golden Artifact here. It's another llama head statue. All you need to do is collect the Artifacts at these three locations, and the free XP is yours.
