A brand new set of Fortnite Battle Royale Season 9 challenges have officially dropped, with one rather difficult challenge asking players to throw and catch the Flying Disc Toy to earn their Battle Stars.

As per usual, Fortnite Battle Royale fans have seven new challenges to complete this week, but a specific task involving the Flying Disc Toy is definitely the most difficult, despite how easy it sounds.

Thankfully, there’s an easy way to complete this challenge and earn your Battle Stars, although you may need to try it a couple of times to nail it.

This challenge is only open to players who own the Season 9 Battle Pass, but if you haven’t been playing much, or haven’t been grinding through the pass, you’ll need to get to Tier 35 before you can even attempt it, as that is when the Flying Disk Toy unlocks.

Epic GamesThe Flying Disc doesn’t unlock until Tier 35 of the Season 9 Battle Pass.

Once the Flying Disc Toy is available and ready for use, you need to make sure you have it assigned as an emote you want to use, then hop into the Battle Bus and head into a match.

The easiest way to catch the Flying Disc Toy is to throw it straight up into the air instead of throwing it out like you normally would with a frisbee.

Catching the disc might take a little practice, as it won’t go directly up into the air, and straight back down again. You’ll probably have to move a few steps to grab it, but after a couple of attempts, you should get the technique down easily.

If you’re still struggling to get it down, this video should give you a visual reference of how to complete it. 

The good news is that you don’t even have to be in a match to complete this challenge, as it’s available for completion on the lobby island that players wait in before the match starts.

Remember, you need to finish the match to receive your reward, so don’t quit out after you complete it!

Step-by-step guide to completing the “Throw and catch the Flying Disc Toy” challenge

  1. Reach Tier 35 on the Season 9 Battle Pass and unlock the Flying Disc.
  2. Enter a match.
  3. Throw the Flying Disc toy directly above your character’s head.
  4. Catch it before it lands.
  5. Finish the game and receive your reward.

Fortnite’s yearly Fortnitemares event has finally arrived, but when does Season 5 arrive?

Fortnite’s new season dropped on August 27,  introducinging tons of changes to the Fortnite World with the likes of new Marvel-themed points-of-interest, superhero characters, and abilities for fans of the battle royale to enjoy. Midas’ Revenge adds even more for fans to sink their teeth into.

Midas’ Revenge has introduced new skins with their yearly event.

When does Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 start?

With only a few days to go of Fortnitemares’ Midas’ Revenge event, Chapter 2 Season 4 has over a month left, with an expected end date of November 30th, as reliable Fortnite leaker HYPEX claims.

The Baba Yaga skin has just been released alongside the Ghostbusters bundle, with more soon to come. The skin is ‘Rare’ and part of the ‘Coven Fresh’ set, costing 1,200 V Bucks.


After the Fortnitemare event, the fifth season of Fortnite’s Chapter 2 should follow immediately, along with some more major changes and a new theme.

Will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 be available through Apple?

A portion of the mobile player base is currently unable to download Fortnite Season 4, due to the ongoing legal feud between Epic Games and Apple, with Apple blocking all future Fortnite updates on the App store.

While the feud is being resolved, there have been suggestions that Season 4 could potentially be extended for Apple users, although that remains to be seen.

Epic Games has already extended seasons in Fortnite Chapter 2, but there has been no sign from the developers that they have any intention of doing so this time around.

What will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5’s theme be?

With Fortnite Season 4 being based completely around Marvel characters, there have been rumors that a DC-themed season could come next.

The Fortnite devs have already introduced members of the DC Comics universe as seen with Aquaman and Black Manta in Season 3’s recent Splash Down events. They may go a step further at the next opportunity, adding more familiar faces.

Epic also revealed plans for a Joker bundle that is expected to be released towards the end of Season 4, which could be used to build hype for the upcoming season.

With a new Batman movie also in the works, it would not be too surprising to see another partnership between DC and Epic but as for now, fans will have to wait until Season 5 draws nearer.
