Shadow Fins are one of the fin evolutions that you can apply to your shark in Maneater.
Unlocked by finding each of the landmarks dotted around Golden Shores, the Shadow Fins evolution is a part of the Shadow Set, which gives your bull shark a boost to its maximum speed.
Shadow Fins Official Description
“This evolution releases a poison cloud around you when you evade.”
How to Unlock the Shadow Fins
To unlock the Shadow Fins evolution, you first need to gain access to the Golden Shores part of the Maneater map.
In Golden Shores, you’ll then need to find all eight landmarks that are placed around the area.
You need to find the signposts by the landmarks – which show up in orange when you use your sonar (Layout 1: O or B) – and hit them with any of your attacks.
Here’s where to find all of the landmark locations in Golden Shores to unlock Shadow Fins:
