Fortnite Medusa Snapshot Quests Guide

Just like all the Snapshot quests, there are multiple steps required to complete. Here’s a look at all the steps:

To start the quests, you’ll need to make sure you complete all the previous Snapshot quests. Then, head to a Scrying Pool anywhere around the map and speak to Medusa to get started.

There are several Scrying Pools around the map, so you can head to the closest one to the Battle Bus:

  • East of The Underworld
  • Northeast of Reckless Railways
  • Southwest of Pleasant Piazza
  • Mount Olympus

Destroy Vases to Collect Golden Fleece Statues

The first step of the Medusa quests will be to collect some Golden Fleece Statues. They are all located in Mount Olympus. They look like little golden sheep, but you’ll need to track them down and destroy the vases they are hiding in to collect them. Here’s where to find all of them:

  • Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 Map, Mount Olympus with golden fleece statue locations
  • Player standing in front of a vase with a golden fleece sheep statue inside in Mount Olympus of Fortnite
  • North side of Mount Olympus in front of a statue
  • West side of Mount Olympus beside a bench
  • South side of Mount Olympus beside some altars

When you find them, use your pickaxe to break the vase and then collect the statue by holding X, Square, or E. Along with these three golden sheep hidden inside the vases, you’ll also need to find a Cracking Hourglass and Medusa’s Broken Harpe Sword.

Find a Cracking Hourglass

The Hourglass and the Broken Harpe Sword are not too far away from the other Golden Fleece Statues. They are both within Mount Olympus as well. Head to the building in the center of the location, just south of the fountain square.

  • Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 map of Mount Olympus cracking hourglass location
  • Small hour glass on the floor in Mount Olympus, player standing in front of it with pickaxe in hand in Fortnite

Inside the library room in the lower levels, you’ll see a mini hourglass on the floor. Look for the exclamation mark on your mini-map and overtop of the item to help you locate them more easily.

Retrieve Medusa’s Broken Harpe Sword

Medusa’s Broken Harpe Sword is in the same room on the far side across from the hourglass. You’ll see the pieces of the sword on top of a stone podium.

  • Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 map, Mount Olympus broken harpe sword location
  • Shining piece of medusa's broken harpe sword on a stone podium in Mount Olympus in Fortnite

Deliver the Artifacts to Medusa

Now that you have all the statues and artifacts, you can deliver them to Medusa in person. She’s at Fencing Fields, west of Mount Olympus.

When you arrive at Fencing Fields, head to the fields on the northern side and you’ll see her wandering around a small building there. Speak to her to continue on to your next step.

Defeat Minions

Medusa needs you to buy her some time. To do so, you’ll need to fight some minions. Minions are the NPC enemies that fight alongside the gods. So, to defeat minions, all you need to do is challenge Hades, Cerberus, Zeus, or Ares to a duel and defeat all six of the minions that spawn. Here are the locations of the god duels that will work:

  • Hades – West side of The Underworld
  • Zeus – Eastern side of Mount Olympus
  • Ares – Center of Brawler’s Battleground

You don’t actually need to fight the god during this quest. The stage is completed right after defeating all six of the minions. Then, you’ll need to head to a Scrying Pool again to speak to the Oracle. Luckily, if you opted for Zeus or Hades, you’ll have Scrying Pools nearby. (Scroll up to see the map of the Scrying Pools again if you need a reminder.)

Destroy Crackling Hourglasses

After speaking to The Oracle, your next step will be to track down more hourglasses and destroy them. You only need to break three of them, but five will be shown on the map. This makes it easier to navigate no matter where you end up. These are all the spots where you’ll find them:

  • Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 Map of Zeus crackling hourglass locations
  • Player standing in front of a small crackling hourglass in Fencing Fields in Fortnite
  • Northern Restored Reels
  • Northern Fencing Fields
  • Pantheon Path west of Mount Olympus
  • Summit Temple northeast of Mount Olympus
  • Brawler’s Battleground

These hourglasses are the same size as the crackling hourglass you removed earlier. Like before, you can use the exclamation marks to locate them more easily when they are in range. Use your pickaxe to break them. Once that’s done, head back to Fencing Fields again to speak to Medusa before your final step.

Damage Zeus’ Hourglass and Defeat Him

The last step of the quest is to face Zeus once and for all. Before challenging him, though, you’ll need to break his Stormforged Hourglass toward the center of Mount Olympus at the fountain statue. Use your pickaxe to break it, just like the mini ones.

  • Zeus Stormforged Hourglass in Mount Olympus in Fortnite
  • Zeus boss fight podium at Mount Olympus

Once it’s broken, head up into the temple on the far east side of Mount Olympus, just beyond the fountain. Now, you can interact with Zeus’ challenge statue and battle him. This battle is no easy task. You’ll face one full wave of Zeus before he goes invulnerable and summons minions. After fighting the minions, you’ll face another wave, and Zeus will start using his thunder ability. Keep moving as much as possible to avoid his powerful attacks and use a fast-firing shotgun, SMG, or even Hades Whip to drain his health as quickly as possible.

Return to the Scrying Pool right in Mount Olympus to report your victory to the Oracle. Now you’re officially done with Medusa’s Snapshots! You’ll receive a nice ton of XP for doing so, helping you collect more of those Battle Pass rewards before the season is over.
