Fortnite and Tomb Raider fans want to know how to unlock Lara Croft in Chapter 2, Season 6.

Epic Games has let Fortnite players loose into Chapter 2, Season 6. This time, they can take advantage of a wild landscape filled with feral creatures and a collapsing Reality that is slowly reverting the island to its untamed roots. Fortunately, players have a few allies to help them survive: including the legendary explorer Lara Croft of Tomb Raider fame.

How to Unlock Lara Croft in Fortnite Season 6

Players can unlock Lara Croft via the Season 6 Battle Pass—whether they buy it separately for 950 V-Bucks or are a Fortnite Crew subscription service member.

Lara Croft has a few iterations to earn. Her modern "Fortnite-adapted" look unlocks at Battle Pass rank 15 while her origin-inspired "Tomb Raider 25th Anniversary" skin unlocks at rank 22. There are two other variants, as well: a retro low-poly skin and a solid gold one. Looks like players have a bit of a grind ahead of them.

Epic's featuring of Lara Croft is intimately tied to the series' anniversary as a celebration of the adventurer's long-standing legacy. Tomb Raider was originally released in 1996 by Core Design and Eidos Interactive—which would eventually become part of Square Enix. This first title has been re-released on Mac OS, Pocket PC, iOS, and, most recently, Android in 2015. There are ~20 individual titles that make up the franchise as a whole with Tomb Raider: Reloaded coming to mobile in 2021.
