Finding the Clay Pigeon locations is the objective of one of Fortnite's many Weekly Challenges.

Completing it will give you additional XP to help go towards your many Season 6 rewards. Note you'll need to be a Battle Pass holder in order to undertake this challenge.

Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. That said, there are still plenty of other Fortnite Challenges as part of the Fortnite Season 9 Battle Pass, with our guides including Wind Turbine locations, Fortnite race track locations for the desert, snowy and grasslands race tracks and holographic Tomato head, Durr Burger head and giant Dumpling head locations. There are also daily Fortnite Fortbyte locations to discover and weekly Utopia Battle Star locations. And, for a limited time only, there's the Downtown Drop LTM with Two Food Trucks locations, Jonesy locations, On Fire Letter locations and Fortnite Hidden Shortcut locations.

How shooting a clay pigeon works in Fortnite

For the Week 8 Challenges, you are tasked with the following:

  • Shoot a Clay Pigeon at different locations (5 total, 5 Battle Stars)

What this challenge means is there are clay pigeon shooters across the map. Once you have found one, you can interact with it when the button prompt appears as you get close:

This will fire a 'clay pigeon' - but can be other flying objects, such as rubber duckies. The aim is to hit one with your weapon. Doing so will tick one off the challenge.

It's easier said than done - the clay pigeon moves at quite a pace, and if you miss, the machine will reset. We recommend using a automatic weapon - such as an SMG or assault rifle - giving you a spray of fire that has more chance of hitting it.

What are the numbers for on the nearby board, you might ask? It's to keep your score - the left is your high score, the right is your current score.

As with other challenges such as basketball hoops or lightning bolts, using a clay pigeon shooter can attract unwanted attention from other players. As such, you'll want to do it when you are alone, so other players can't attack you.

If you are struggling, then we recommend trying it one of the LTM modes - such as 50v50 - which splits the map so you're surrounded by other friendly players more often, meaning you won't be obstructed from climbing up and getting on with the challenge.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
