This week in Fortnite, you’ll be asked to deal damage within 15 seconds of gliding as part of the new Season 5, Week 12 challenges. You’ll need to do 200 points worth of damage to complete this quest, for a total of 20,000 XP. If you’re used to playing the regular Battle Royale mode, you will probably struggle to pull this one off, unless you get lucky–and even then, you’ll have to potentially stretch out this challenge across multiple rounds. There’s an easier way to complete it in one go, which we’ve outlined in our guide below.
How to glide in Fortnite
The “gliding” this challenge refers to is exactly what you think it is–deploying your glider as you skydive onto the map. In normal Battle Royale matches, you can only deploy your glider once, unless you use Rifts or Launch Pads. We don’t recommend relying on this method to complete this quest if you’re looking to get it done quickly. The best way to complete this challenge is to play a team mode that allows you to re-deploy your glider, like Team Rumble or Battle Lab.
The fastest way to deal damage after gliding
To get this challenge done fast, we recommend playing Team Rumble mode. Team Rumble is a great mode to complete this challenge in because it grants two opportunities to re-deploy your glider: when you respawn and when you jump off any ledge. To find this mode, head to game mode options from the lobby where you can select solo, duos, trios and squads. Ignore the standard Battle Royale modes and select Team Rumble, which should be listed down at the bottom left next to Creative mode.
