Players finally have access to the Gold Lara Croft skin as of Fortnite update v16.40.

Along with the appearance of Lady Orelia, Fortnite players will finally have the opportunity to earn the Gold Lara Croft skin by visiting what appears to be an abandoned tomb on the new "Isla Nublada"—a vaguely familiar location whose name directly translates to "Cloudy Island."

How to Get Gold Lara Croft in Fortnite

Thanks to the update, players can travel to Isla Nublada—directly south of Flush Factory. They'll need to be wearing the classic Lara Croft skin to actually earn the Gold variant, of course. From there, the process is pretty simple:

Locate Lady Orelia in one of the largest rooms in the ruins. If she's too well-hidden or obscured by the walls, players should also keep an eye out for a large stone table with a golden SCAR Assault Rifle levitating on it. Speaking to Orelia is optional, but we recommend it. What's an epic quest without a bit of lore about potentially cursed golden treasure?

Pick up the golden weapon. Upon contact, it will turn the Lara Croft skin solid gold, and unlock the appearance in the player's locker indefinitely.

Orelia will be pretty mad at players who dare touch her treasure, however. She'll immediately become hostile and attack—but, since the gold variant skin is instantaneously rewarded to the player, the outcome of the battle isn't really important. Whether Croft makes a swift escape or stands her ground is up to the player.

As always, prepare for a PvP fight. It's rare that only one visitor comes to the island at a time.
