One of the Fortnite Season 5 Week 12 challenges requires you to find a family portrait at a shipwreck. Where is it on the map? We’ve got a handy guide to help you out.

Each week, there are a new set of weekly challenges added to Epic Games’ hit battle royale. They help keep the game fresh, and offer a chance for players to earn XP to level up their Battle Pass and unlock skins and cosmetics.

This week, there are plenty of challenges focused on fishing, including one that might be a little more difficult to complete. You’ll need to find a family portrait at a shipwreck, but that can be hard if you don’t know where to look.

Fortunately, we’ve put together a handy guide complete with a map that will let you know exactly where you need to land once you leave the Battle Bus to tick this challenge off in no time at all.

Finding the family portrait will be easy once you know what part of the map you need to visit. As the challenge description suggests, you’ll need to visit a shipwreck to get your hands on the item.

There are two shipwrecks you can visit on the Fortnite map, as follows:

  • Shipwreck Cove, which can be found southeast of Catty Corner.
  • Crashed Cargo, which is at the west of The Island.

These aren’t marked locations on the map, so you might need some help finding them. You can see the map above to know exactly where Shipwreck Cove, Crashed Cargo, and Sharky Shell are located.

For now, we’re going to focus on Shipwreck Cove, as there are a total of three portraits you can find here. You only need to collect one, so completing the challenge should be a breeze if you choose to go here.

The first family portrait is located near this capsized ship at the south of the landmark. The portrait is of a woman and can be found on the ground in between two wooden crates, as seen in the image below.

The second Fortnite family portrait at Shipwreck Cove is located at the west of the landmark. It’s an image of a man, and it’s resting near a flotation device, some wooden crates, and a giant rock.

The third and final family portrait is a bit trickier to find, as it’s actually hidden inside a bathtub. You’ll likely miss it at first glance, but it can be found at the northeast of Shipwreck Cove.

Remember, you only need to find one of these family portraits to tick this challenge off. Once you’ve completed it, you’ll have a sweet 20,000 XP to claim as your reward.

New Fortnite leak hints at NPC drivers & boss vehicles in Season 6

Massively popular battle royale game Fortnite might be getting some new features for its vehicles in the near future, including the possibility of NPC drivers or boss vehicles – if a recent code uncovered by a dataminer/leaker on Twitter is to be believed.

If you’ve been hoping for more from the vehicles in Fortnite, then there may be some good news for you on the horizon.

A leaker/dataminer named ‘Mang0e’ over on Twitter has discovered some unreleased “AI spawner capabilities for vehicles” in the Fortnite’s code that were added in during the game’s 15.40 update on February 16, 2021.

While they don’t have an exact answer for what it could be, they do speculate that it could mean that NPC drivers could be coming to the game. If this is the case, this would help players get around the map while also giving them a way to fight back, without having to rely on another player driving the car.

This theory has also grabbed the eye of another Fortnite leaker, iFireMonkey, who claims he had the same exact thought when he first saw the code for himself.

Magn0e also speculates that this code could mean that boss vehicles might be coming to the game, which would then attack players.

Of course, both thoughts are pure speculation at this point, and the only thing we know for a certainty right now is that there’s code referencing AIs and vehicles in the game’s code. The code/idea may end up getting completely scrapped and never released.

That being said, this particular situation is interesting because, according leaker HYPEX, Epic is currently testing attachments/mods for vehicles in the game, which may be connected to this code in some way (although that may be reaching a bit).

Nevertheless, it’ll be interesting to see if anything comes out of this in the future, and with Season 6 right around the corner, it hopefully won’t be too much longer.
