Fortnite Midas' Mission challenges: How to finish his tasks and unlock the SHADOW or GHOST Midas style

Week 10 is here, though that doesn't mean the season is over just yet, as we've still got the remaining Fortnite Midas' Mission challenges for the final Agent on the roster. You actually don't need to rush your way through the golden boy's missions, as we have another month or so left until Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3 officially kicks in, but it's still a good idea to get them done when you get the opportunity. The second part of these challenges include finding golden wrenches and fighting with Henchmen, alongside the standard Fortnite eliminations and chest searching activities.

Now that the season is starting to draw to a close, you should be ensuring you've reached the top tier of the battle pass by levelling up to 100, and with a sizeable 40,000 XP available for each assignment you clear on this list this will definitely help you on your way to that target. Read on and we'll show you everything you need to know to complete the Fortnite Midas' Mission challenges, plus we'll explain how to unlock the Fortnite Midas SHADOW or GHOST style.

How to find the Fortnite Midas' Mission challenges

As has become the established pattern this season, you'll find all of the Fortnite Midas' Mission challenges within the Battle Pass screen by selecting the Challenge Table in the centre. Shifting through the top tabs will bring you to the Midas' Mission entry, which then drops markers across the map to highlight the general locations to complete these challenges, with the bottom left icon showing all of the Fortnite Midas' Mission challenges in a single list. Be aware that some challenges will place several map markers as they either involve or can be completed in multiple locations, so don't get overwhelmed by the number of pointers on your screen!

Search Chests in different Named Locations (5)

There are a total of 18 named locations across the island, and you need to search chests in five of them. Your options are:

  • Craggy Cliffs
  • Dirty Docks
  • Frenzy Farm
  • Holly Hedges
  • Lazy Lake
  • Misty Meadows
  • Pleasant Park
  • Retail Row
  • Salty Springs
  • Slurpy Swamp
  • Steamy Stacks
  • Sweaty Sands
  • Weeping Woods
  • The Agency
  • The Grotto
  • The Rig
  • The Shark
  • The Yacht

Deal damage to players with Sniper Rifles (300)

Team Rumble is the easiest mode to attempt this, so search chests early to try and obtain a sniper rifle then get yourself set up in a good position to deal damage – tucked in cover or even on top of a tree towards the edge of the circle is usually a good spot to pick opponents off from.

Upgrade a weapon to Legendary rarity at an Upgrade Bench (1)

To upgrade a weapon to Legendary (orange) rarity, you need to take an Epic (purple) gun to one of the Fortnite weapon upgrade benches then spend the relevant amount of materials to improve it. Again, Team Rumble is best for this as Epic weapons are much more common and you start each match with a decent supply of materials.

Search a Llama, Legendary Chest, or Supply Drop (1)

Fortnite llamas remain an elusive item to discover, as do legendary chests which are coloured blue and give off a different chime to regular chests. Searching a Supply Drop is your best bet here and, you guessed it, Team Rumble gives you the most opportunities to find and open a drop.

Deal damage to a Choppa with a passenger or pilot inside (100)

You'll find Fortnite helicopters at helipads in various locations around the map, but for this challenge you need to damage a Choppa with at least one player inside it. Hide yourself near one of those locations, and be ready to shoot the Choppa once someone climbs aboard.

Collect XP coins (5)

XP coins in different colours appear all over the island, and give off a recognisable chime when nearby. Grab five of them in total and you're golden.

Carry a giant pink teddy bear found in Risky Reels 100 meters (100)

To carry a Fortnite giant pink teddy bear, you need to head to Risky Reels near the middle of the island, then pick one up and lug it 100 meters.

Search Midas' golden llama between a junk yard, gas station, and an RV campsite (1)

The Fortnite Midas' golden llama location can be found between the three listed landmarks, and our separate guide pinpoints exactly where you need to go.

Gather Intel during Spy Games Operation matches (10)

The Fortnite Spy Games are the game modes such as Operation: Knockout, which appear towards the bottom of the mode list. These involve gathering Intel, and you'll need to play a few matches at least to collect 10 in total.

Earn Survival, Combat, or Scavenger Gold Medals (3)

You'll earn a Survival Gold Medal for reaching the final 10 players in Solo / Duos / Squads match, a Combat Gold Medal for getting at least 8 eliminations or assists in a match, and a Scavenger Gold Medal for searching 12 chests, llamas, or supply drops in a match. You need three in total, so it's up to you which you want to aim for, though Combat and Scavenger medals can both be racked up reasonably easily in Team Rumble.

Eliminate players with a Shotgun, AR, and SMG (3)

If you're not regularly picking up eliminations then head into a Team Rumble match and find yourself a shotgun, assault rifle, and SMG. During the course of a match you should be able to pick up one of each elimination, even if it's finishing off an opponent one of your teammates has softened up for you.

Search Chests in different matches (7)

You should be searching chests every match anyway to grab weapons and items, so this will come naturally over time.

Eliminate a player or Henchman with a Legendary or Boss weapon (3)

Legendary weapons are orange, which you can either find as loot or by upgrading a purple Epic weapon at an upgrade bench, whereas Boss weapons can be obtained by eliminating them at Spy Bases – though Meowscles is currently hanging out at the Fortnite Box Factory location if you want another option for finding a Boss.

Heal teammates with a Bandage Bazooka (200)

The Bandage Bazooka fires out bandages, which heal teammates if they're below 100 and you score a hit on them. You can try this in Duos or Squads, though Team Rumble provides you with up to 19 teammates to heal which makes this much easier.

Dance within 10s of Knocking a Henchman (3)

Fortnite Henchmen and Agents only appear in Solo, Duos, and Squads mode, and you'll need to perform an emote within 10 seconds of knocking a Henchman down. If you hold down on the d-pad you'll quickly perform your default or more recently used emote, to speed things up.

Search different golden pipe wrenches (5)

There are five Fortnite Golden Pipe Wrench locations dotted around the outskirts of the island, and you'll need to go and collect the shiny wrenches from all of them.

Catch a fish while riding in a Choppa (3)

Unless you have a friend to coordinate with, this could prove tricky. However, we reckon if you find yourself a fishing rod then pilot a Choppa to land near a fishing spot, you should be able to follow the prompt to switch seats then cast a line to catch fish from one of the passenger positions.

Deal damage to players or Henchmen at the Yacht and the Agency in a single match (2)

It's more likely that you'll find Henchmen than other players in these locations, so you're best off attempting this in Solo, Duos, or Squads mode. Remember that you only need to deal damage, so you can hit a Henchman from a distance at one location without involving yourself in a firefight, then move to the other location and do the same.

Visit The Agency, Hayman, and Greasy Graves in a single match (3)

Helpfully the distances between these three locations aren't too far, but if you want to Fortnite visit The Agency, Hayman, and Greasy Graves in a single match then we've got the details of the best route to take.

Deal damage to Henchmen while disguised (100)

To disguise yourself you'll need to visit one of the Fortnite phone booths, then you can go to a Spy Base or Fortnite SHADOW safe house and attack any Henchmen you find – headshots do large amounts of damage so aim for them.

How to unlock the Fortnite Midas SHADOW or GHOST style

Your choices for the Fortnite Midas SHADOW or GHOST style are located under the Agent menu, in the top left corner of the Battle Pass screen. Once you're in there, select the fifth and final option for Midas – to earn the style options you'll need to meet three requirements first:

  • Buy the Battle Pass
  • Reach Battle Pass Level 100
  • Complete 18 Midas Challenges

When you've ticked off those three assignments, Midas' final SHADOW mission and final GHOST mission will unlock. As with the previous agents that have gone before, you'll need to decide which of the factions you want to side with then finish their mission, which then lets you use either the SHADOW or GHOST style for Midas. Once you complete this final task your choice is locked in, so make sure you've considered your options before choosing your path:

  • Deliver Legendary weapons to SHADOW Dropboxes (2)
  • Deliver Legendary weapons to GHOST Dropboxes (2)

For all the details to help you complete this final mission, check out our Fortnite deliver Legendary weapons to SHADOW or GHOST Dropboxes guide.
