Bounties in Fortnite are mini-missions that reward players for completing specific tasks. They can range from simple things like harvesting to difficult objectives like eliminating 10 opponents in a single match. This will name a specific player for you to track down and kill, rather than wasting time running around the map and shooting everyone you encounter. You’ll get gold bars if you can complete bounties in time, which started with Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5.
Guide for Finishing Bounties in Fortnite
There are a few ways to complete bounties in Fortnite. One way is to visit the bounty board and select one to complete. There are three tiers of bounties: easy, medium, and hard. Each has a set of requirements, but they all require finding and destroying a target before the clock runs out. You may check the amount of time remaining and the name of your bounty target by looking at the top left-hand corner of your screen at any moment. Now for the tips:
To assist you in finding your aim, a yellow circle will flash on your mini-map and the official Fortnite map. Your target will be found within that circle and will move when you do, so you’ll know if they’re on the go. Finding your target’s exact location is up to you, as is the process of eliminating them when you discover them. When hunting your target down, try not to squander time since other players may steal them at any moment.
Other Ways of Completing a Bounty Mission
Another way to complete bounties is by completing challenges. There are weekly and daily challenges, and both can be completed to earn rewards. Weekly challenges reset every Thursday, and daily challenges reset every day. Here are 4 other methods:
- Players may also participate in events to finish bounties. Special events occur occasionally, and completing the associated tasks will earn you rewards.
- You can also complete bounties by playing in the Arena mode. In this mode, players are pitted against each other in a series of matches, and the top performers will earn rewards.
- The other procedure to complete bounties is by completing missions. Missions are special tasks that are given to players by NPCs. These can be found on the map, and players can choose to accept or ignore them.
- The final way of completing bounties involves purchasing them from the Item Shop. The Item Shop is a rotating selection of cosmetic items that players can buy with real-world currency. Some of these items include emotes, outfits, gliders, and pickaxes. Occasionally, the shop offers bundles of challenges that can be bought and finished for rewards.
How to Accept Fortnite Bounties
Players first need to open the Quest Menu by pressing “Q” on PC or “Up” on the D-Pad on Console to accept a Bounty. They need to select the “Bounties” tab and then select the Bounty they want to complete. After that, they’ll need to follow the instructions below to complete it.
Once you’ve found a Bounty Board, interact with it to start the bounty hunt. You’ll be given a specific objective to complete, and you’ll have three minutes to do so. Again, objectives can be anything from eliminating other players to finding certain items around the map, so check it for clues. There are a few things to keep in mind when attempting to complete bounties in Fortnite:
- Make sure you have the right equipment for the job
- Try to be as efficient as possible in completing the bounty
- Don’t forget to claim your rewards when you’re done
