During the V6.20 update to Fortnite Battle Royale, Epic Games added the brand new Shooting Range item to Playgrounds mode, giving players a new way to hone their aiming skills before stepping onto the Battle Bus.

The items look very similar to Port-A-Forts, and can be found in vending machines located just outside Tilted Towers. While these machines store and give out Port-A-Shooting-Ranges, they also give out items like the Port-A-Challenge where players shoot bots for coins, or the Port-A-Building-Challenge which allows players to practice their builds and edits.

The Shooting Range item comes in four rarities, with the difficulty of the range increasing every time the rarity of the item does. Once placed, the Port-A-Shooting-Range has four more vending machines, that allow users to choose which guns they want to practice with.

The common rarity item spawns two AI controlled bots which stand still, while the uncommon version of the Port-A-Shooting-Range has the two bots running from side to side, meaning players will have to track their enemies while they aim to ensure they hit their shot.

The rare Port-A-Shooting-Range sees the bots running in circles, making it even harder to track their movement, while the Epic version requires players to snipe a mixture of moving and still targets from long rage.

YouTuber ‘Beaks’ suggests building up into the air before placing the Port-A-Shooting-Range, as if you attempt to place the item on sloped ground, it will glitch through the earth and won’t work properly.

The Port-A-Shooting-Range was included in the latest update for Fortnite, which included a brand new weapon and the introduction of the Fortnitemares Limited Time Event.

How to compete in Fortnite’s first Box Fight Tournament: date, prizes

Fortnite is about to launch its first-ever Box Fight Tournament, a creative 1v1 competition in an arena designed by winners of last month’s Princess Castle Creative Contest. If you’re interested in competing, here’s everything you need to know.

Fortnite is a competitive game at heart, but it’s also a wonderful platform for creative players. It’s the reason why the creative mode is so popular. Players can build their own islands and share them with others.

Last month, Fortnite celebrated its third birthday by hosting the Princess Castle Creative Contest. Essentially, players had to create and submit their own version of a Box Fight map.

For those who don’t know, Box Fighting is when two players are fighting within one tile of each other and inside a box. It’s unique in the sense that it combines competitive and creative skills.

Two players named HassanFTN and Shride won the contest. Their arena, named “Island of Dreams” (9005-6737-3429), was chosen to be showcased in the first official Box Fight Tournament.

How to compete in the Box Fight Tournament

To compete in the Box Fight Tournament, all you need to do is look for the Box Fight Tournament LTM on the main menu once it’s available.

However, there is an eligibility requirement. Players will need to have reached Open League (Division II) in Arena before the tournament begins. Don’t stress if you haven’t though. It’s very easy to do and will only take a couple of games.

The format is pretty straightforward. Players will duke it out in a one on one Box Fight against other players in their region.

It will follow a traditional tournament structure with multiple rounds. The more rounds you win, the higher you will climb. The player with the most wins at the end of the tournament is the winner.

Box Fighting requires calculated attacks and solid defense.

When does the Box Fight Tournament start?

Fortnite players don’t need to wait long. The Box Fight Tournament begins on Wednesday, October 28, which means it’s only one sleep away.

However, that also means if you haven’t ranked up enough in Arena to be eligible, you’ll need to hop in and get started before it’s too late.

Box Fighting is an important skill in Fortnite. In many ways, it’s what separates the wolves from the sheep.

If you’ve mastered it, the tournament is a good way to test your skills. Don’t be disheartened if you haven’t though. Taking part in the tournament is a good way to improve.
