'Score a basket in different hoops' is one of the Fortnite Week 2 Challenges, and although they were originally launched last week, they're still available to be completed for as long as Season 5 of Fortnite Battle Royale rolls on for. In this Fortnite Basketball Courts guide, we'll be walking you through the complete list of Fortnite Basketball Court locations all around the Battle Royale map, so you can track down the courts easily, score a point, and be done with this challenge in no time at all.
If you instead need anything else to do with Fortnite Battle Royale, you’ll want to head over to our Fortnite Season 5 guides page. It’s in this guide that you can find all the information you need on unlocking every single new skin in the Battle Pass, as well as all the various changes that have been made to the Battle Royale map since Season 5 kicked off earlier this month.
Fortnite Basketball Courts
Firstly, seasoned Fortnite players will know by now that there are seven total challenges for each week in Fortnite Battle Royale. This challenge revolving around basketball courts is just one such challenge, and if you want a walkthrough of how to complete the six additional challenges for the week, you’ll want to head over to our Fortnite Week 2 Challenges guide.
But for this one challenge, you’re going to need to track down five total basketball courts scattered across the Fortnite map. There are actually more than five courts on the map, and we’ll provide you with a complete list of the locations just below:
Basketball Court Locations in Fortnite
- The first basketball court on the Fortnite map is on the eastern side of Junk Junction.
- The next court is located in Snobby Shores, in the garden of one of the houses on the northern end of the location.
- Just west of Tilted Towers and north of Greasy Grove, you’ll find another basketball court.
- In the north of Tilted Towers, you can find a basketball court on one of the raised sections.
- There’s also another court not too far away from the previous two, in the northern section of Greasy Grove.
- Just south of Salty Springs, there’s a lone house on top of a mountain. You can find another court just to the west of this house.
- In the southern section of Retail Row, there’s another basketball court.
- Also in Retail Row, there’s a second basketball court in the eastern section of the named location.
- In the northeast of Paradise Palms on the Fortnite map, you can find the final basketball court on the Fortnite map.
How to Score a Basket in Fortnite
Once you’ve reached any one of the basketball courts listed above, you’ll need to actually score. For this, you need to execute an emote with a basketball, not too far away from the rim, so that the ball from the emote actually goes in. We’ve had success with standing near the half court circle, and aiming roughly near the rim of the actual basket. Let fly, and change your trajectory as necessary.
We might be all done with this Fortnite guide on how to score on different basketball courts, but there’s plenty yet to be done in the Battle Royale game. You can head over to our Fortnite Loot Lake chests guide for information on how to complete another challenge for the week, or our Fortnite Week 2 Treasure Challenge guide, for how to track down the treasure star near Paradise Palms.
Alternatively, the Fortnite Birthday Celebration event has now kicked off in Battle Royale, and offers something new for everyone to undertake. You can head over to our main Fortnite Birthday event guide, or our Fortnite Birthday Cakes guide, for a location of all the birthday cakes on the map.
