This week in Fortnite: Battle Royale, we’re going skeet shooting. Much like one of the week 2 challenges asked us to go score baskets on different hoops, the week 3 challenges are asking us to shoot clay pigeons at five different locations across the map. It won’t be easy, but we’ll need to start by knowing where to go. Clay pigeon launchers/skeet shooting ranges were delivered across the map with the v5.10 patch, and you’ll need to hunt down a couple different ones to complete the challenge. They all come with a little lounge setup, and here’s what you’re looking for:
For those that don’t know, sport shooting used to use live pigeons released out of cages, no doubt scared out of their tiny minds, and for good reason. At a certain point, people went for a cheaper and more humane route, replacing the real pigeons with clay discs launched out of a variety of mechanisms, hence: “clay pigeon.” Here’s a map of where to find five different launchers:
- Near the edge of the map, by the river south of Paradise Palms
- In the northern “crook” of Loot Lake
- On the eastern side of the river, just north of the bridge in between Lazy Links and Risky Reels
- North of Flush Factory, near the edge of the map, just west of the unnamed location with the big chair.
- West of Pleasant Park, on the western edge of the big mountain.
Update: There’s one more location, south of Lonely Lodge.
When you get to a location you’ll want to use the object to activate it, and then aim in the direction of the launcher. It will fire a little yellow/orange disc, and you’ll have to shoot at it. If you miss, you’ll need to activate it again. If you hit, it will keep firing: there’s a little scoreboard nearby for people that want to engage in a little friendly competition.
It’s not the easiest thing in the world, but you’ll get it eventually. You’ve got a few options here: you can either try to go for first-shot accuracy and hit the nail on the head, or you can get something like an SMG and just sort of spray: the pigeon appears to only have 1 health, so you only need one hit on it. As in the real world, however, a shotgun is your best bet.
You’ll also want to be doing this in 50 vs. 50, unless you’re particularly foolhardy. This one requires a little more concentration than usual, and you’ll be a sitting duck for anyone looking for kills.
Update: The article above refers to “skeet shooting,” but I’ve just remembered that skeet refers to a particular game played between two clay pigeon launching towers, clearly different than what is being depicted in Fortnite. The sport featured in the game is closer to trap shooting.
