Fortnite’s Week 5 challenges are upon us for Season 8, and most of the challenges are pretty straightforward. However, the bouncy ball challenge may need a bit of explanation. One of the premium Battle Pass challenges requires players to “get 15 bounces in a single throw with the Bouncy Ball toy.” If you aren’t sure how to complete this one, don’t worry. This one is easier than it sounds, just follow the steps below and you’ll complete your 15 bounces with the Bouncy Ball in no time.
How to Get the Bouncy Ball Toy
Before you can even attempt this challenge, there are a couple things you need first. To complete this challenge, you must first unlock the Bouncy Ball toy, which becomes available upon reaching Tier 26 of the Season 8 Battle Pass in Fortnite. Of course, this also means that you need to have purchased the premium Battle Pass to access both the toy and the challenge itself.
Once you own the Bouncy Ball toy, equip it into one of your active Emote slots in your Locker. With the Bouncy Ball toy equipped, return to the Lobby and queue up for a match.
How to Get 15 Bounces with the Bouncy Ball
The challenge requires you to not only get 15 bounces with the Bouncy Ball toy, but to do so in a single throw. You may be tempted to simply drop the ball off of a high peak like you did for the Ice Puck challenge, but the results won’t be the same.
For this challenge, all you need is some building materials, enough to build a 1×1 structure. Simply build four walls and a roof around yourself. Then, bring up your Emote wheel to throw the Bouncy Ball while inside the structure.
The Bouncy Ball should bounce rapidly around the cube until it loses momentum. With any luck, the ball should bounce way more than 15 times in a single throw to complete the challenge. The prompt in the lower left corner of the screen will tell you how many times the ball bounced.
Once you have bounced the Bouncy Ball toy 15 times in a single throw, be sure to complete the match normally to save your challenge progress. Successfully completing the challenge will reward you with five Battle Stars that go toward ranking up your Battle Pass.
