Epic wants you to use the baller. Which is fair, because the baller is pretty fun to use. There’s a new spate of challenges live now in Fortnite: Battle Royale, and while there aren’t any treasure hunting objectives or more elaborate non-combat challenges, there is one that wants you to do some racing in Epic’s newest toy. The game wants you to complete a lap at the racetrack near Happy Hamlet, and we’re here to help with exactly how to do that. Read on for a map, guide and location for completing this Season 8, Week 5 challenge in Fortnite: Battle Royale.
First off you’ve got to know where you are going. Actually that’s sort of the thrust of the whole challenge, but still. The racetrack itself is not in Happy Hamlet so much as directly next to it, winding its way around one of those picturesque snowy peaks that showed up in the game alongside Season 7. Here’s where the track is, with the start of it right next to the buildings in Happy Hamlet.
Luckily, there are usually a bunch of ballers right near the starting line, so you shouldn’t have any trouble getting one to run the race with. When you do, I’d recommend playing around a little bit free v bucks generator. Sure, you could just roll in a circle and do it nice and slow, but there’s a reason this is taking place in a more topographically active area. Use that grapple mechanic to hit some hills and practice swinging around. It’s fun, and it can serve you well in what is currently a baller-heavy meta.
Also, if you’re trying to complete an earlier challenge that asks you to do damage to an opponent riding in a vehicle…this is an exceptionally good time to do that. Just don’t blow up anyone’s baller, that’s mean.
