Where to find Predator’s mysterious pod in Fortnite: Location guide

David Purcell

Epic Games have dropped the biggest teaser yet that Predator will be the next major crossover character to join the world of Fortnite, and if you’re wondering where the mysterious pod location is, you’ve come to the right place. 

The game’s map is an ever-changing beast, that’s for sure. With almost every passing update there are big changes to the way it looks, with new points of interest (POIs) being added with each passing season, and sometimes even with weekly patches.

With the v15.20 update came the arrival of an extraterrestrial ship, similar to those Star Wars fans will be familiar with. Only, upon closer inspection, you will see that this is no Star Wars ship at all.

Predator has arrived in the Fortnite world.

When did Fortnite add the mysterious pod?

The ‘mysterious pod’ first crash-landed on The Island as part of the v15.20 update on January 13, 2021.

At first, it appeared to simply be another easter egg teasing the arrival of a long-rumored Predator skin in the game. But it was eventually revealed to be essential to completing a new series of Jungle Hunter Quests.

These new quests are exclusive to Battle Pass holders, and all of them will need to be completed in order to unlock the Predator skin as well as a series of matching cosmetics including a back bling and a pickaxe.

To complete the first of Predator’s Jungle Hunter Quests, you’ll need to find a ‘mysterious pod’ which is actually a crash-landed ship. Doing this will unlock a Predator-themed banner icon for you to use on your profile.
