Knowing how to get the gold Lara Croft Fortnite skin is simple: find Orellia, get the golden assault rifle first and enjoy. That’s easier said than done, as you’ll be fighting off every other player trying to do the exact same thing. Here’s a simple way how to get the gold Lara Croft in Fortnite.
The easiest way how to get Gold Lara Croft Fortnite
First things first: you need the normal Lara Croft outfit. She’s part of Chapter 2 Season 6’s Battle Pass. You unlock her at level 15. The golden Lara Croft is a style for this skin.
Check out a video to see exactly where the Gold AR spawns, and keep that in mind. Don’t be intimidated by the hordes of enemies you see in the video. This is only tough because just one player per match can unlock the gold Lara Croft style. There’s a way to get around this, and it involves exploiting bot lobbies.
Now, you’ll need to get a brand new account. Find a friend or get another system with Fortnite running on a fresh account. Now, on your main account (the one you want the gold Lara skin for), squad up with the fresh account. The new account doesn’t actually need to play the game through to the end, but you will need to at least jump into a match with the fresh account.
As your main account, drop to the southern island where Orelia is. You should be able to avoid any other enemies and grab the gold Assault Rifle.
Emerging from the shadows, Lady Orelia takes her place beside Oro.
Find her on the Island, and offer tribute in the form of Bars. But be warned, not everyone who has seen her has returned.https://t.co/NLTCMKiYMo

This works because fresh accounts will always start with bot lobbies. The bot lobby is intentionally easy to win, since Epic Games wants every new player to place highly to get their first taste of Victory Royale greatness.
When paired up with a new account, other accounts can participate in bot lobbies as well. Since bots aren’t going out of their way to complete challenges, you won’t run into any of them when you go attempt to grab the AR.
