The newest Challenge for Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 5, Week 3 has players go skeet shooting, and yes, you’ll be able to keep score. Here’s what you need to know about the clay pigeons challenge, including a map of all their currently known locations.
Week 3 challenges for Fortnite rolled out on Thursday morning at 9 a.m., and along with typical trials involving treasure maps or dealing damage, there’s also “shoot a clay pigeon at different locations.” Players will have to travel to five different locations spread across the map and successfully shoot a clay pigeon that they manually launch out of a skeet-shooting device.
Here are some more specific instructions for each location:
- Southern Paradise Palms — One skeet shooter is to the far southeast of the map, just barely northeast of where the river meets the sea.
- Between Flush Factory and Shifty Shafts — There’s a dilapidated, abandoned house near the edge of a cliff. The skeet shooter is barely north of that between a car and umbrella.
- Northern Lonely Lodge - Between a picnic table and umbrella just north of a bridge that crosses over the river, there’s a skeet shooter.
- Northeastern Loot Lake — Next to a small campsite that overlooks the lake is a skeet shooter within eyesight of the central Loot Lake house.
- West of Pleasant Park — Between a mountain and a house in disrepair (that’s also east of a red car) is another skeet shooter.
- Between Lazy Links and Risky Reels — Along the riverside barely northeast of the bridge, there’s a skeet shooter next to an old timey black pick-up truck.
These six locations are more than enough for players to complete the Challenge. There might be more, but that’s unlikely.
Keep in mind that players will always need some kind of gun to actually shoot the clay pigeons, so it’s necessary to do some looting before trying to shoot clay pigeons. Some kind of shotgun will always be easiest, but regardless of the weapon, it’s best to line up directly behind the skeet shooter like so:
In case players didn’t know, skeet shooting is a real sport that people do in real life, and strangely enough, the Fortnite version is pretty accurate. IRL, it’s a sporting competition meant to simulate bird hunting, and once upon a time, people used real pigeons to do it. Hence the term “clay pigeons,” which is pretty messed up when you think about it. At some point shooting actual birds en masse was deemed a bit rude, so sportsmen switched over to clay discs that are only about 5 inches in diameter. Down to the size and color, the Fortnite clay pigeons are pretty spot-on replicas.
Season 5 doesn’t end until sometime on or around September 27, so there’s plenty of time remaining to complete challenges like this one.
