Last year, Epic Games and Alliance partnered to take players to Croft Manor, delighting Fortnite and Tomb Raider fans alike. Well, players can now journey back to Lara’s mansion to enjoy the fun puzzle level as Epic celebrates the launch of Unreal Engine 5 and the development of a new Tomb Raider game. If you find yourself struggling, our Mystery at Croft Manor walkthrough should help you get by this Fortnite creative mode.
Mystery at Croft Manor Walkthrough in Fortnite
This creative level isn’t new as players could always enjoy it by dipping over to Creative Mode and entering the appropriate code: 0116-9392-3142. If you want to discover the secrets inside Croft Manor, you must find 8 puzzle pieces.
Thankfully, you can bring three other friends for a total of four players. This, along with our walkthrough, should make the Fortnite Mystery at Croft Manor easier to manage.
You don’t just have to find puzzle pieces, but you also must solve different puzzles and fight off some enemies in the process.
So, let’s get started on the manor itself, and then we’ll get into finding the puzzle pieces later.
Croft Manor Walkthrough
When you walk in after the lobby, read the note on the table. Afterward, a path of green fire will sprout up that leads to the library. Simply follow it to start your journey. Pull the lever in the center of the room to unlock a secret entrance below.
Before heading into the new path, grab the bow. Follow the path until you reach a dungeon area. There are 4 bolts holding up a cage. Shoot them to knock the cage into the water.
Retrieve the Grappler and use it to enter the door up ahead. From there, pull the lever to open a door beneath you.
With the Grappler, scale a series of platforms. If you fall onto the spiked terrain below, you’ll start over. Once you’re done, there’s a forced sliding segment.
Next up in the Fortnite Mystery at Croft Manor walkthrough, you must solve four puzzles. There are different colored circles on the floor. By completing each puzzle, a ball rolls down the appropriate slide.
For the puzzles, you must do the following:
- Cross a trap minefield
- Cross a narrow platform path over lava
- Light four torches in a room
- Shoot every plate off the walls
With the puzzles done, the relic room will open. In it are dual pistols and a jewel on a raised platform to interact with. It’s here you’ll fight a swarm of enemies. Surviving this initial wave gives you a cool minigun.
Continuing on with the Fortnite Mystery at Croft Manor walkthrough, beat the Golden Relic Keeper to fall through the center platform. You’ll enter a space-like area.
Once you jump through the hall, skate to the next puzzle area. The next hall consists of floors that disappear, so sprint to the exit.
With the next puzzle, use shockwave grenades to blast yourself across. Otherwise, you can skip it near the entrance.
Run across some platforms and then hit the jump pad to get to the next section. In there, you’ll place the jewel on the pedestal to complete the quest.
Mystery at Croft Manor Puzzle Piece Locations
First, in the library, climb the boxes to find the first puzzle piece.
For the second puzzle piece, run through the library. Climb the boxes with the green flames to the balcony and go to the small alcove to see the piece in a corner.
In the dungeon area where you shoot the chains, you’ll find another puzzle piece. If you head to the far left corner and turn around, you’ll see it.
An easy puzzle piece to find in our Fortnite Mystery at Croft Manor walkthrough is the unmissable one. It’s after a forced sliding segment in the middle of an opening.
Next, you can find a puzzle piece in the puzzle room where the floor gives out. There’s a light bridge you’ll use to leave, and off to the left is the piece.
The area where you find the dual pistols is another puzzle piece. It sits to the left of the pistols.
Your next puzzle piece is in the area with the shockwave grenades. This is easy to miss, but our Fortnite Mystery at Croft Manor walkthrough should help you nab it. The puzzle piece sits ahead on one of the islands right behind a closed door.
Lastly, right after that section, you must run across the platforms. After the second platform, the puzzle piece is on the left.
If you get all the puzzle pieces, you’ll unlock a secret area. This area has a cool “Winston in the freezer” that some fans of the classic Tomb Raider series may remember.
Fortnite is available on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo, PC, and mobile devices.
