In the latest Fortnite patch v23.40, you can complete quests to get the exclusive Gold Blooded Ace Skin for free!
The “Cold Blooded” syndicate has taken over the Island, offering an opportunity to complete Most Wanted Quests and earn the exclusive Gold Blooded Ace Skin.
During this event, players can get Fortnite Exotic Weapons that are sealed away in highly guarded vaults. Carry out your heist and take these weapons for yourself while the weapons are up for the taking.

Introducing the Gold Blooded Ace Skin
Any crew can score a big payday — but few become infamous! Completing Most Wanted Quests will raise your Infamy and unlock exclusive rewards. For example, you can now get the Cash Stash Back Bling, The Vault Guardian Pickaxe, and the highly sought-after Gold Blooded Ace Skin.
Basically, keep track of your Infamy and remaining rewards by navigating to the Cold Blooded logo tab in the Lobby.
Better yet, It’s all available without purchase. Therefore, don’t miss out on the chance to get your hands on the Gold Blooded Ace Skin!

HEISTED EXPLOSIVE ASSAULT RIFLE
Aim down sights for a red-hot impact — this Exotic Assault Rifle fires explosive projectiles.
HEISTED ACCELERANT SHOTGUN
Practice makes perfect. The movement speed and fire rate of this Exotic Shotgun increases as you damage enemies with it.

- Hand Cannon

Things Heat Up Even More
Thought you could commit crimes and wear your Gold Blooded Ace Skin without gaining notoriety?
In Fortnite Most Wanted, opening vaults and eliminating opponents will raise your “Heat” Level in a match — trackable by flame icons in your HUD.
Becoming notorious isn’t necessarily negative. In fact, you may want to raise your Heat Level, since each Heat Level comes with benefits:
🔥Eliminated opponents drop more Bars.
🔥🔥Your movement speed increases by 15%, and you’ll regenerate up to 100 Health out of combat.
🔥🔥🔥Your movement speed increases by 20%, and you’ll regenerate up to 100 Health and 50 Shield out of combat.
🔥🔥🔥🔥Your movement speed increases by 25%, and you’ll regenerate up to 100 Health and 100 Shield out of combat.
Use these benefits to help your heist go off without a hitch.

Unlock the Gold Blooded Ace Skin by Completing the Most Wanted Quests
The Most Wanted Quests are broken down into five sets for you to complete:
- Intel & Recon

Complete the Quests in one set, and you’ll unlock the next one, as well as a Cold Blooded Medallion. Moreover, collect all five Medallions and you’ll get the Solid Skull Back Bling.
But it doesn’t end there – complete the Solid Skull Quests to evolve the Back Bling and get the Gold Blooded Ace Skin by the end of Chapter 4 Season 1.
Basically, put in the time, and you’ll be racking up elims in no time.
