Football, or soccer to our American readers, is the talk of the town this week, with the Fifa World Cup now underway. Even Fortnite, Epic Games’ hit battle royale title, is getting in on the action.
Week seven of Fortnite Season 4 is here. This week Epic has challenged players to score five goals on seven of the football pitches located across the Fortnite map. Players will find a ball on the pitch which they must knock into the goal to complete the challenge.
Six of the pitches have been present for some time, so it’s likely that you already know where to drop in to get started. However, a seven pitch was added in the top, northwest corner ahead of the challenge.
It is highly likely that you will run into more than a few people that are attempting the same challenge. It will be incredibly difficult to score a goal under a hail of gunfire, so attempting this in solo mode is probably best avoided.
Your best bet is probably to play a few 50v50 games. You should be able to hit a few different pitches on your side of the map without running into too much trouble.
Where are the soccer goals in Fortnite?
There are seven soccer fields on the Fortnite map, but you only need to find five of them. You can find these pitches here:
- Northwest, east of Junk Junction
- Northwest, Pleasant Park
- West, west of Tilted Towers
- Southwest, Flush Factory
- South, Fatal Fields
- Northeast, south of Risky Reels
- Northeast, west of Lonely Lodge
Fortnite football fever
Football fever has well and truly hit the world of Fortnite. As well as the soccer challenge, Epic has already released team jerseys for each of the 32 teams competing at this summer’s Russia World Cup tournament.
Six of these customisable jerseys are currently available to buy for vbucks via the story.
