SALT LAKE CITY — A new “Fortnite” challenge is a lot easier than it seems.

“Fortnite” released its new set of weekly challenges for week 5 on Thursday. The battle royale game sends out a list of challenges each week. Completing the challenges can help gamers unlock new reward items, character skins and emote moves.

Bouncy ball: For week 5, one of the challenges is to make a bouncy ball bounce 15 times. You have to use the bouncy ball toy and throw it 15 times to complete the challenge.

How to find it: Head into your locker and scroll down until you find the toy inside your toy section.

How to finish it: Polygon has a really good tip for completing this challenge. Pick a place on the map far away from the rest of the population.

  • From there, use your axe tool to break down a lot of trees, metal or brick depending on where you land. From there, build a box with four walls, a floor and a ceiling.
  • “After you’ve finished your box, select the Bouncy Ball emote and use it. The ball should bounce around your box about 30 times. Once it comes to a stop, you’ll get credit for the completed challenge,” according to Polygon.

Another take: Forbes had the same take on the bouncy ball trick: “This challenge is hard until you figure out that all you have to do is be indoors and make sure the ball comes to rest somewhere near you after its bouncing. Then, it’s almost impossible not to get 15 bounces as you will easily get way, way more than that when you figure this out.”
