How to get 15 Bounces in a single throw using the Bouncy Ball in Fortnite

As one of the Fortnite Season 8's Week 5 Challenges, you need to do the following:

  • Get 15 bounces in a single throw with the Bouncy Ball toy (1 total, 5 Battle Stars)

First, you need to unlock the Bouncy Ball. We discuss how to get the Bouncy Ball in Fortnite later on this page, but assuming you have it, let's clarify how to get 15 Bounces in a single throw easily.

The most fool-proof way we found was to make a small room using building materials. First, gather some building materials - wood, metal or brick, doesn't matter what - and enter the building mode.

Now create a small room, consisting of four walls made of one panel each, a roof - either pointed or flat - and if required, a flat floor.

Here's what we mean, with one side missing to show the interior easier:


And here's what it looks like on the inside, with all four walls in place:


Now select the Bouncy Ball from your emote inventory, and throw it. No matter where you throw it, due to the small size of the room, it should get well over 15 bounces.


For us, it managed double that - 30 bounces. Once it has sat still, you can see how many it's done in the bottom left corner - where the player activity feed is - to learn how you did.


If for whatever reason that didn't work, aim in a slightly different part of the room. And if that fails, or you are struggling to build a small room like this, try and throw it inside a house anywhere on the map. Most have a small enough room you can try this in and get the same result.

Struggling still? Then try chucking it down the side of a large mountain - such as the map's volcano. Either way, once you learn that you need either a slope or multiple walls to ping it off, getting over 15 bounces should be straightforward.

Chapter 3 of Fortnite has arrived with a new collection of Battle Pass skins! There's a new map to explore, The Foundation skin, earn Victory Crowns, character collection to complete and a new Victory Umbrellato collect. You can also now slide, web swing, find device locations and open vaults!

How to get Fortnite Bouncy Ball

Before you can complete the 15 bounces challenge, you first need to unlock the Fortnite Bouncy Ball.

The Bouncy Ball is a Season 8 Battle Pass reward, and you need to complete a total of 26 tiers before the Bouncy Ball unlocks.


Once you have unlocked it, then you need to equip it. Head to the Locker screen, then find it among your emotes. Remember where it is, so when you need to complete the 15 Bounces challenge, you can do it quickly.
