The seventh challenge for the 14 Days of Summer event in Fortnite Battle Royale is now live and if you’re looking to complete it, you will have to know how to hit other players with water balloons. 

The 14 Days of Summer event has added some summer color to the Fortnite map and provided some new content, but having reached the halfway mark already, another challenge is now available for completion – to splash others with a water balloon. 


The Epic Games team, who are on a well-deserved break from their usual update schedule, may not have added the most difficult of challenges to the game in their absence. However, hitting other players with a water balloon tasks you with being able to equip balloons in the first place, and not everybody will know exactly how to do it. 

Epic Games14 Days of Summer has brought a whole load of new content to Fortnite.

The challenge may sound pretty easy from the get-go but there are steps to getting your hands on these water balloons. Sadly, the items are not dotted around the map and you’ll have to complete a previous challenge to unlock them for yourself. 


Once you claim five Eliminations with the Daily Unvaulted Weapon – which, as of writing, is the Compact SMG – or a Drumgun, you will unlock the brand new water balloon toy in your item locker.

Epic GamesYou can throw balloons at player in-game or in a pre-game lobby.

Once it’s unlocked, equip the water balloon toy to one of your emote slots and drop into a game. However, you don’t need to worry about avoiding gunfire at Neo Tilted in order to complete this challenge. 

Simply find somebody standing still in the pre-game lobby and take aim at them. 


Of course, you can opt to complete the task during a match – and a hearty congratulations to anybody who succeeds – but it’s never a bad thing to take the easy way out, especially when it needs to be completed in three different sessions. 

In return for completing the daily task, you will receive a brand new loading screen and another notch in the quest to complete all 14 separate challenges. 

So, get out there and find an unlucky target to soak with your balloons!


How to find Fortnite Season 3’s Fortilla key and open the Vault

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3 flooded the entire map after Midas activated the Device—but now players get their turns to flood something of their own: their inventories with loot stolen from the Fortilla Vault.

Chapter 2, Season 3 changed Fortnite’s map drastically, in one of the biggest revamps ever for the game, namely by washing away most of the game’s northwestern points of interest and sliding in the Fortilla, a brand new set of islands in the southwestern quadrant.


Aside from wanting an excuse to travel to a new destination, players can now be additionally motivated to explore the Fortilla because they can defeat a boss, obtain a keycard, and then reap the benefits of boundless, formerly vaulted loot.

Fortnite’s Season 3 map, a flooded masterpiece with some intriguing additions.

South of Holly Hedges and west of Rickety Rig, you’ll find the Fortilla: a set of small islands surrounded by about five larger islands—all covered with structures resembling a tropical shanty town.


How to open Fortilla Vault

  1. Drop at the Fortilla in Fortnite Season 3
  2. Scour the area for Ocean
  3. Eliminate Ocean
  4. Pick up Ocean’s Fortilla Keycard (and other loot)
  5. Follow the Keycard’s directions to find and unlock the vault!


As mentioned by YouTube’s ‘Gamerz World,’ the best way to find Ocean is to glide around on one of the map’s boats and listen for her because she’s a talker.

Once you defeat Ocean, you’ll get three great pieces of loot: Ocean’s Burst Assault Rifle, Ocean’s Bottomless Chug Jug, and the ever-important Fortilla Keycard.

The Chug Jug is a nasty item, as it gives you full health and shields (and offers free refills). The gun is also mighty strong, but not nearly as exciting as the keycard, which will grant you directions and access to the Vault.

The Fortilla is an expansive set of islands, covered in henchmen and beach decor.

When you have the Fortilla Keycard selected from your inventory, the game will show you arrows towards the Vault. Follow those directions, make it to the Vault, and, voila, loot as far as the eye can see. 

The new Fortilla Vault is the latest in the game since Catty Corner’s Vault was discovered. While you got some sick loot from that one, nothing is quite as quenching as Ocean’s bottomless Chug Jug.
