Finding the Fortnite Prisoner stages is an optional series of unlocks once you’ve completed enough challenges.
Doing so unlocks The Prisoner as part of Snowfall’s secret Battle Star locations, and although the game doesn’t suggest it as such, there are three additional styles to unlock by completing stages 2, 3, and 4 of The Prisoner.
Please note that this particular challenge can no longer be completed. What’s new? Chapter 4 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include Grind Rails and Kinetic Blades, along with the new Battle Pass, character collection, and Eren Jaeger skin. It’s a good idea to know how to get XP quickly in Fortnite.

How The Prisoner scenarios work in Fortnite
First, you must have unlocked The Prisoner skin in Fortnite. The Prisoner is the reward skin for completing 60 weekly challenges throughout Season 7. You can view your progress as part of Snowfall’s Battle Star secret locations screen.
You will see the following reward screen once you are done:
Although the game doesn’t advertise them, there are three additional Prisoner styles to unlock. These are found by interacting with specific objects on the map. They will be released in waves (Prisoner stages) over several weeks, with three additional styles available in total.
You only have until the end of Season 7 to unlock them, so make sure you access them before the Season 8 release date arrives.
Prisoner scenario location map
At a glance, here’s where you’ll find The Prisoner stage locations:
Prisoner scenario location map
Remember, for all of the following, you must have The Prisoner skin equipped to interact with the relevant objects, and you must do so in order.
Additionally, The Prisoner Stage 1 is unlocked automatically – it’s the default appearance.
The Prisoner’s Location Stage 2
To unlock The Prisoner’s second look (remember, the first stage is the default skin), first equip The Prisoner skin and visit Polar Peak.
Specifically, you must reach the highest floor. It’s easier if you land on the roof and go down the stairs, until you reach an area with tables on the sides and a fireplace on the back wall.
If you’re coming up from the ground, keep going up the stairs until you find it.
Investigate the desk at the back, where you will find a key. If you have The Prisoner skin equipped, you can interact with it.
Do so and The Prisoner Stage 2 skin will unlock automatically. This will be confirmed when you reach the end of the match.
The Prisoner’s Location Stage 3
The third style of the Prisoner, or Stage 3, is found in the desert area of the map.
Specifically, head to the mountain just north of Paradise Palms. At the top of this mountain is a campfire, next to the edge of the cliff on the other side.
While wearing The Prisoner’s skin, light the bonfire. Keep in mind that if someone else beats you, you may have to try again in a different match.
By doing this, the skin will transform into the third style and you will know for sure when you receive the reward notification at the end of the match.
Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 is here! To help you get started with this heist-themed season, we have guides on how to alert a security camera, protect data from Forecast Towers, and destroy weakened security walls or doors. There’s also a new Victory Umbrella! In the meantime, learn what the best weapons are, the current boosts, how to get XP quickly, how to use the best PC builds, and earn a crown of victory.
The Prisoner’s Location Stage 4
The Prisoner Stage 4 location is in the northeast of the map, on a cliff north of Wailing Woods.
At the southern end of the long cliff is a circle of torches on a stone floor.
Playing as the Prisoner with the Stage 2 and Stage 3 skins already unlocked, the torches will light up when you stand in the middle of them.
After that, the stage 4 skin will be unlocked.
So that’s it: all four stages of the Prisoner have been unlocked! Now on time Season 8…
