Preliminary information

Before going into the details of the procedure on how to unlock Lara Croft of Tomb Raider on Fortnite, I think it may interest you to know more about the general situation.

Well, on March 16, 2021 there was the start event of Season 6 of Chapter 2 of the Epic Games title. In this latest single player event, the user was required to close portals in order to try to “fix” the Zero Point.

However, for some “strange events”, the player is put in the shoes of various characters. This in fact justifies the arrival in Fortnite of several icons from the world of video games, and beyond. If in the previous Season 5 there were The Mandalorian and Predator to attract the attention of fans, in this Season 6 there are Lara Croft of Tomb Raider and the footballer Neymar.

In any case, the island has become “wild” and now it is also possible to hunt animals for various purposes, including the making of weapons. I don’t want to give you too many spoilers about it, but I suggest you deepen these mechanics by also finding the various NPCs (non-player characters) present on the map and exploring a thousand activities proposed by Fortnite.

For the rest, in this tutorial, I will focus on how to get the various skins related to Lara Croft, given that she is one of the most prominent characters of Season 6 of Chapter 2, whose deadline is set for June 8, 2021.

How to unlock Tomb Raider Lara Croft on Fortnite

After explaining the general situation to you, I would say that it is time to take action and explain how to get the Lara Croft skin on Fortnite. Below you can find information on the various costumes present in Season 6 of Chapter 2 of the Epic Games title. Clearly, the steps to follow are the same regardless of the game platform used.

How to get Lara Croft on Fortnite

The Lara Croft skin is one of those highlighted in the Battle Pass of Season 6 of Chapter 2 of Fortnite.

This means that to get the iconic archaeologist costume you need to purchase the Battle Pass, which costs 950 V-Buck in its basic version. There is also another version of the Battle Pass, which includes 25 levels and requires disbursement of 2,800 V-Bucks.

In case you don’t know, V- Bucks are the virtual currency present within Fortnite, which can be obtained either by spending real money or by leveling up within the free Battle Pass (therefore simply by playing). In the latter case, it may be necessary to be patient to reach the required 950 V-Bucks, as the free rewards only occasionally include V-Bucks (typically 100 at a time).

In any case, to see when you can get V-Bucks for free, you usually just need to go to the BATTLE PASS tab and take a look at the rewards marked FREE. More info here.

For the rest, if you want to get the Battle Pass of Season 6 of Chapter 2 immediately, just access the Season in question, go to the BATTLE PASS tab, press the BUY BATTLE PASS button and select the BUY option. Just be careful to buy a Battle Pass when there is still a good amount of time left at the end of the Season, as it will no longer be valid in the next.

In any case, at this point you can press on the CONFIRM PURCHASE box, to get the basic version of the Battle Pass for 950 V-Buck, or on CONFIRM AND ADD 25 LEVELS, to add 25 levels by paying 2,800 V-Buck.

I remind you that, typically, 1,000 V-Bucks cost 7.99 euros, so if you want the basic version of the Battle Pass, this is the price. In any case, the game will propose the package suited to your choice, illustrating the cost and asking you to confirm the transaction through the payment system linked to the platform you are using.

For example, for PS4 I recommend you take a look at my tutorial on how to pay on PlayStation Store. For the rest, you can learn more through the guide on how to get V-Buck on Fortnite.

I also remind you that for some time now the Crew subscription has also been available which allows, for a cost of 11.99 euros per month, to have Battle Pass1,000 V-Buck per month and exclusive cosmetic items. You can buy it using the ENTER THE FORTNITE CREW button.

Once you have the Battle Pass, all you have to do is play Fortnite, leveling up your account. In fact, the Lara Croft skin is obtained by reaching level 15 of the paid Battle Pass of Season 6 of Chapter 2 of the Epic Games title.

The advice to quickly get experience points and level up is to first fall, at the beginning of the Season, in the areas marked with the question mark. In fact, by going to these points on the map for the first time, you will get great satisfaction.

For the rest, it is always good to also take a look at the assignments, which are accessible through the appropriate section on the main screen of Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode. Trying to complete the latter, you will be able to reach your goal without too much trouble. For more details, you can refer to my guide on how to do XP on Fortnite.

In any case, if there is still some time left for the end of the Season, the best thing you can do is not to rush. In fact, trying to “force” the obtaining of experience points can potentially lead to “boredom”, when in reality Fortnite is a game and, as such, allows you to have fun if approached in the right way.

This means that you should simply play the Epic Games title, enjoying the various games: you will see that level 15 is not that difficult to reach and, if you play “normally” for a while, you will be able to reach it without too many problems.

For the rest, after obtaining the Lara Croft skin, I remind you that you can equip it by going to the CABINET tab, pressing on the costume icon (the first on the top left), selecting the appropriate skin and pressing the SAVE AND EXIT button.

Perfect, now you can easily start a common game and play “as Lara Croft” in Fortnite.

How to have Lara Croft 25th anniversary

How do you say? Have you heard that Season 6 of Fortnite Chapter 2 also brought with it another variant of Lara Croft’s costume? They didn’t lie to you: I’ll tell you how to get it right away!

In fact, you should know that 2021 will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the release of the first Tomb Raider game. Yes, you got it right: the first title in the series was originally released in 1996 for Sega Saturn (and shortly thereafter on the first glorious PlayStation).

It is therefore clear that the insertion of the character within Fortnite was also done in this light, in order to celebrate the iconic franchise. For this reason, it is no coincidence that the reward associated with level 22 of the paid Battle Pass of Season 6 of Chapter 2 of the Epic Games title is precisely the Lara Croft skin dedicated to the 25th anniversary.

As you have probably guessed, the method to unlock this costume is the same as the one I illustrated for the “base” skin in the previous chapter, since you have to level up within the Battle Pass.

In short, what you have to do, once you have purchased the Battle Pass, is simply to play and have fun within Fortnite. You will see that, between a carefree play and the other, at the end level 22 will arrive in the blink of an eye.

For completeness of information, you should know that in the same way you can also unlock other cosmetic items related to Lara Croft within Season 6 of Chapter 2 of Fortnite. For example, at level 10 you get the Survival Backpack.

How to get Lara Croft (Classic) on Fortnite

The third and final skin relating to Lara Croft present in the Battle Pass of Season 6 of Chapter 2 of Fortnite is the one relating to the classic style. This is the costume that takes a little more effort to achieve, but in reality it is nothing impossible.

In fact, to unlock the Lara Croft (Classic) skin just reach level 15 of the Battle Pass and complete 31 epic assignments. To be clear, you just need to go, starting from the main screen of the Battle Royale mode of the game, in the NEW ASSIGNMENTS section.

Here you will find “missions” to carry out during your games. To unlock this skin, you need to aim for the purple-colored assignments, which is epic rarity. It is difficult for me to provide you with detailed information on this, as the variables involved are many.

However, I can assure you that, by playing the game for a while and trying to complete these “missions”, you will be able to reach your goal by the end of the Season without too many problems (obviously if there are a good number of days left when you are reading this tutorial).

For the rest, since you are a fan of the Epic Games title, I would recommend that you take a look at the page of my site dedicated to Fortnite, where you can find many other tutorials that could be for you.
