It’s the final week of Fortnite Season 3, which means there’s only one more set of weekly challenges to complete before the season ends. One of the Week 10 challenges tells players to skydive through different floating rings in Fortnite Battle Royale. This one is a bit different from the other challenges, as you will need to skydive through the required number of floating rings prior to even setting foot on the ground in Fortnite. We’ve come up with several tips to help you easily glide through each ring and help you complete the floating rings challenge in Fortnite.
How to Skydive Through Floating Rings
Most of the time in Fortnite Battle Royale, the goal is to try to land fast so you can start looting as soon as possible. While that’s still generally the case, this challenge may require you to slow your descent a bit.
For the Fortnite floating rings challenge, you’ll see an assortment of colored rings suspended in the air as you ride in on the Battle Bus at the start of a round. The goal of the floating rings challenge is to glide and skydive your way through 10 different rings in the sky during your fall from the Battle Bus. While this may sound easy, floating through enough rings to satisfy the challenge may take more effort than you’d expect.
The floating rings are suspended at different heights, so it’s best to try to line up with more than one ring to maximize the number you skydive through. Pick a ring closest to you as soon as you leap from the Battle Bus. As you get close to the ring, deploy your glider or umbrella to slow your descent for better accuracy.
If you can position yourself directly above a ring, you can undo your glider and quickly skydive straight through the ring by pressing forward. As you skydive through a ring, you’ll hear an audio cue and see some confetti to indicate that the ring counted.
If you hit one of the higher rings right after leaving the Battle Bus, you should be able to fly through at least one more ring before heading toward the ground for your landing. The more floating rings you skydive through in a single freefall, the sooner you can complete the floating rings challenge in Fortnite.
We've seen reports of players receiving partial credit for the "Skydive through floating rings" weekly challenge and are investigating!— Fortnite (@FortniteGame) April 26, 2018
It’s important to note that some players are experiencing an issue where some floating rings are not being credited toward the challenge. Epic is aware of this bug and are currently looking to push a hotfix for this issue as soon as possible. Until then, Epic suggests flying directly through the center of each ring to improve your likelihood of getting credit. Also, like with every weekly challenge, make sure to complete the match by winning or being eliminated to ensure your efforts count toward the challenge.
Once you are able to skydive through 10 floating rings in Fortnite Battle Royale, you will earn five Battle Star points toward your Battle Pass progression. Of course, this isn’t the only new challenge available this week.
