Fortnite’s Season 8, Week 7 challenges are here, and you’re in luck if you haven’t gotten tired of visiting pirate camps yet. If you have, grit your teeth: you’re visiting more pirate camps. Arguably the most difficult challenge in the list, however, is one that asks you to do damage to opponents while you’re riding a zipline, something that complicates the game’s already finnicky aiming system. If you’re struggling with this one, here’s a guide on the easiest way to get it done.
First off, it’s the same piece of advice that I might give for any challenge, but it’s even more applicable here. Head to Team Rumble, where the presence of respawns not only gives you a little leeway when it comes to taking your shot, but it means that other people behave a little more recklessly as well, raising the odds that they might wander their way into your reticule. So that’s the first thing I would say: this is just going to be a whole lot easier outside of battle royale modes.
Secondly, remember that this is a “deal damage” challenge and not an “eliminate opponents” challenge. Eliminating opponents would have been maddening, but dealing damage is a little more manageable. Essentially, what this means is that you should be perfectly happy trading accuracy for a high rate of fire and going with the old reliable spray and pray solution. Use weapons like the minigun, rocket launchers, SMGs and even shotguns if you’re so inclined: the point is to throw a ton of bullets and or explosives out there, just hoping that they pick up some enemies in their wake.
So what you’re going to want to do is go v buck generator loot, and when you’re doing so you want to look for anything capable of delivering a large payload of damage without much care as to where it goes. You might love sniper rifles, but sniper rifles are not your friend here unless you’re good enough to make this all more or less trivial anyways. Then, head to the circle and locate the zipline that you’ll want to be working with: there will be plenty of competition for it right now, so be ready. As the fight goes on and focuses in, pay attention to the ziplines in the vicinity and just ride them when you can. At that point, all you want to do is to look for the biggest engagement you can find and just unleash. Some of those bullets are bound to find their marks.
