Shadow Briefings in Fortnite

Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 kept SHADOW Briefings around the island, so here’s everything you need to know about them, including how to find and accept them to complete quests.

Fortnite players looking forward to completing all Weekly Quests this season need to complete a SHADOW Briefing.

Here’s everything you need to know about SHADOW Briefings in Fortnite, including where to find them on the Chapter 5 Season 3 map.

Fortnite SHADOW Briefings explained

SHADOW Briefings are the new Job Boards in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3, meaning players can interact with them to get different objectives they’ll need to complete during the match.

The main difference between Job and Bounty Boards is that each SHADOW Briefing belongs to one of the following categories:

  • Bounty – Eliminate a designated enemy player within the time limit.
  • Supply Drop – Calls a Supply Drop you’ll need to open within the time limit.
  • Plunder Map/Treasure – Uncover a buried Chest in the designated area within the time limit.

Epic Games removed the fourth type of Shadow Briefing, Vehicles, after some bugs. On the other hand, in Season 2 they added more categories related to the Greek gods theme, but it’s yet unclear if we’ll see something similar in Season 3.

SHADOW Briefings reward players with Gold Bars once they complete their objectives. On top of that, Supply Drop and Treasure SHADOW Briefings also let players claim powerful weapons and items in the process.

How to accept SHADOW Briefings in Fortnite

To accept a SHADOW Briefing, all Fortnite players need to do is approach and interact with it during a match. SHADOW Briefings look like computers and only give players one objective, so you won’t have to choose among different options.
