Fortnite’s 14 Days of Summer event is now into its second day, meaning there is a brand new challenge live and available for players who would like to earn themselves a reward.

Over the next two weeks, fans of the popular battle royale game can expect to see a brand new challenge every day, alongside new Limited Time Modes (LTMs) and the unvaulting of some of the game’s most powerful weapons.

The second challenge requires players to bounce the game’s giant beach balls in different matches, but if you’re struggling to find any, or don’t understand the challenge altogether, our useful guide should help you out.

Epic GamesPlayers will need to find a giant beach ball for this challenge.

Following the v9.30 update, a number of massive beach balls appeared across the Fortnite map, although developers Epic Games refrained from explaining what they were for at the time.

Now, with the release of the latest challenge, we finally understand their purpose, as they need to be bounced by players who want to complete this task.

If you’re struggling to find where the three giant beach balls are, we have created a handy map that should give you a decent idea to where they are. Once you get in the general vicinity, they’ll be hard to miss due to their size. Players must bounce a ball in five different matches to complete this challenge.

To bounce the ball, all players really have to do is run into it and send it flying. If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, you can use your harvesting tool to hit it and control its direction, or get underneath the massive inflatable and bounce it with your head.

Completing the challenge will reward players with a brand new loading screen, which sees some of the game’s most iconic skins lounging by some water in the summer versions of their attire.

Epic GamesPlayers will be rewarded with a new loading screen for completing the challenge.

The second challenge of the 14 Days of Summer event is now live, so hop into the game and find yourself a beach ball!

Fortnite players know all too well what it’s like to land in a hot spot and struggle to find a weapon, including TimTheTatMan, who hilariously rage quit after he found nothing but fishing rods.

Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar has jumped back on the Fortnite bandwagon in Season 5. The latest update has brought a lot of old stars back, and for the most part, the reception has been positive.

In Tim’s case though, it hasn’t been all sunshine and roses. He wanted to enjoy everything the new season has to offer. Instead, all he got was fishing rods and lots of them.

TimTheTatman is a talented gamer in his own right, but he’s also hilarious to watch.

TimTheTatman descended onto Salty Towers with his squad, looking for an ideal place to land. Unfortunately, the two vacant rooftops he saw both had fishing rods. “Oh good, a fishing pole, oh good, another fishing pole, okay,”  he said.

He decided to land on a house instead. “If I come in here and there’s a fishing pole, I’m leaving,” he said while breaking into the attic with his pickaxe. “I’m literally not kidding. I’m backing out if there’s a fishing pole in here.”

Fortunately, there wasn’t one in the attic, but there was nothing else either, so he dove a little deeper. He dropped down the staircase, turned left it into the kitchen, and hilariously found another fishing rod staring into his soul.

It’s not ideal to find a fishing rod as your first weapon in Fortnite.

Without saying a word, TimTheTatman opened up the menu, quit the game, and placed his hands on his head in disbelief. “I’m not doing it,” he said, as he struggled to find the words to sum up his rage.

“The two guns I was going to land on [were] fishing poles,” he added. “I open up a door and go left, fishing pole. I’ll try again. When you guys are done, I’ll be ready to go again. I’m not going to play that game. I’m not going to do it.”

There’s nothing worse than landing in a spot surrounded by enemies and finding nothing useful.

Still, TimTheTatman’s fans were rolling on the floor laughing after seeing him get so riled up about it. Plus, the fact it happened to be a fishing rod made it even funnier.
