Fortnite Mysterious Pod Location: Where To Go For Predator Challenge

The star of Alien vs Predator is coming to Fortnite.


Fortnite Season 5's mystery skin has been revealed. It's the famed bounty hunter, Predator. There are several themed challenges that players can complete now. You can unlock certain cosmetic items, too, and you can kill the Predator itself to get the skin as of update v15.21. One of the challenges involved asks players to locate a mysterious pod. It's a vague challenge, but we'll show you how to complete it. Just be aware that you'll have to keep your wits about you. There is a chance others will be headed for the same area.

Where To Find The Mysterious Pod

The mysterious pod, which is Predator's ship, is located in the upper half of Stealthy Stronghold. It's fitting that the ship would land in a jungle environment. The ship's location is circled on the map below. Though it's a little out of the way and in a jungle region, you'll still need to be wary of other players also searching for it.

The pod is right next to a tree and has a chest inside. You can break it open to access the chest with your pickaxe. Everyone is gunning for the pod right now, so be prepared for a fight. Remember that everyone is trying to complete the same challenges--so hold off on fighting if other players don't shoot first.

The three NPCs you need to talk to, Beef Boss, Remedy, and Dummy, are right outside the Stealthy Stronghold as well. Check out our guide on where to find them and you could finish both challenges in the same match. In fact, there's actually one more challenge you can finish in this match. It involves the titular Predator itself. head into Stealthy Stronghold and search for a bit if you're interested in completing that too.

What Do I Get For Finding The Mysterious Pod?

You'll unlock a Predator banner icon by finding the mysterious pod. Predator is this season's mystery skin; you'll need to complete a series of challenges to unlock it. More challenges will be revealed each week of Season 5.
