Fortnite Basketball Hoop locations - Where to score a basket on different hoops

Where to find all Basketball Hoop locations dotted across Fortnite.

Finding the Basketball Hoop 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 5 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. What's new? Chapter 4 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include the Grind Rails and Kinetic Blades, along with the new Battle Pass, character collection and Eren Jaeger skin. It's a good idea to know how to get XP fast in Fortnite.

How score a basket on different hoops work in Fortnite

For the Week 2 Challenges, you are tasked with the following:

  • Score a basket on different hoops (5 total, 5 Battle Stars)

Another challenge from this week is the Fortnite Oasis, Rock Archway and Dinosaurs location.

What this challenge means is there are basketball hoops across the map, and after scoring in five different locations, you'll complete the challenge.

How do you do that, exactly? Using the new Basketball Toy added in Season 5. First, purchase the Battle Pass, then reach Tier 11, giving you the Toy. Next, go to your Emotes and equip it.

Whenever you use it, it'll throw a basketball in front of you. Do this so it reaches the net, and you'll score.

Unfortunately, it's not the most foolproof challenge to complete. First, make sure you are a sufficient distance away to score 3 points (so you are standing outside of the 'D') to improve your chances. You'll know you are successful when confetti rains from the hoop.

Second, make sure you complete the match, as quitting early can hinder your chances.

As with other challenges, playing basketball 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.

Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 is here! It brings a free Lego Insider skin and redemption codes with it, along with a new Victory Umbrella. We've also got pages on new features like Medallions, Weapon Mods, and how to complete a Train Heist. Meanwhile, learn what the best weapons are in the current season, how to get XP fast, and what the best PC settings are to help earn a Victory Crown.
