Fortnite Flying Disc Catch: How to throw the Flying Disc Toy and catch it before it lands

How to throw - and catch - the Flying Disc Toy in Fortnite.

Throwing the Flying Disc Toy and catching it again is one of Fortnite's many challenges.

Like toy-based challenges from previous years - from playing golf to the bouncy ball - it involves you using the Toy in a unique way.

Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. So what's changed since? Check out the Fortnite Season 8 Battle Pass skins, the new Fortnite map changes and the Victory Umbrella.

How to get the Flying Disc Toy in Fortnite

As with every season, there is a Toy to unlock and keep as part of playing through the Battle Pass.

In Season 9, this is the Flying Disc Toy. To unlock the Flying Disc Toy, you have to reach Tier 35 of the Battle Pass.


There's another Flying Disc Toy you can unlock much later on at Tier 68, and either is fine to help you complete this challenge.

Once you have access to a Flying Disc, equip it in your Locker - it's in the Emotes slot - then enter a match.


How to throw the Flying Disc Toy and catch it before it lands in Fortnite

The challenge involves you throwing the Flying Disc Toy and then catching it before it lands.

The key to this is not throwing it away from you, as conventional frisbee convention suggests, but up in the air.

Doing so means it will visible and within running distance for you to then catch it when it falls to earth.

Catching is simply a case of running into the Flying Disc before it hits the ground. Do this correctly and a fanfare will play, indicating that it's been successful.

Here's a video from Amazing Ali on YouTube showing how it's done:

Season 8 and The Sideways have arrived in Fortnite. You can now start collecting the Season 8 Battle Pass skins, using the Sideways weapons, partaking in Sideways encounters, investigate the map changes and obtain the new Victory Umbrella! Make a start on the Season 8 questlines, with the IO Heist and finding IO guards and mending locations for Baba Yaga. You can also start collecting colour bottles for Tonna Fish and completing the new character collection.

Perhaps the hardest part is doing this without attracting the attention of other players. If you can, do this in a team-based mode - Team Rumble is a good bet - to minimise the number of enemies that could shoot you mid-attempt.

Remember you have the end of the season to complete this, so you have a number of weeks to tick this off the list.
