How to Play Golf Using the New Fortnite Toys

Season 5 of Fortnite has introduced Toys, a new set of emotes that involve basketballs, beach balls and even a golf ball.

The Golf Toy is perfect for playing around on the new Lazy Links section of the map. However, the golf ball will need to be unlocked before you can play.


Every Toy can only be unlocked through the Season 5 Battle Pass. The golf Toy will require leveling up until you reach Tier 27 of the Battle Pass.

After reaching Tier 27, the Golf Toy emote will be available to equip and can be used like any other emote.


Head over to Lazy Links golf course, which used to be Anarchy Acres, and Fortnite will allow you to drop your Golf Toy anywhere and aim for the holes.

Your character will hit the ball with their pickaxe, but you can control the hit for a full on golfing mini game. The ball will be hit where you were aiming before you pressed the emote button. A putt will occur if your reticle was on the ground, a drive happens when your reticle is aimed up.

If you hit the ball into a hole, your name will pop up in the kill feed with the distance of your shot. Although you can play the full Lazy Links course, since the game will track where your ball landed, keep in mind that a battle royale is still going on around you. Some players won’t care about in-game events.


Golf may be a bigger part of the Playground mode when it comes back, but until then you will have to watch your back while playing a round.


Fortnite Flare Gun return leaked with major buff

A new Fortnite leak has claimed that the Flare Gun could be set to make a return in the near future, and it would be receiving quite a substantial buff too. 

As Fortnite seasons unfold, weapons and items are regularly cycled in and out of the loot pool – either for being too strong, too weak, or not fitting the theme of the new patch. 


This means that some fan-favorite weapons might disappear from the game for one reason or another, either to return at some point later in the future or to never be seen again. 

In the case of the Flare Gun, which was initially added to the battle royale back in the v13.20 update but it was removed at the start of Chapter 2, Season 4. With some fans hoping to see it return, especially given the new fire mechanics, it appears as if Epic have got something up their sleeve.

The Flare Gun first appeared in a small short video from Epic Games.

Following the v14.30 update, which gave a buff to the Combat Shotgun and also brought the Rally Royale limited-time mode to the party, leakers uncovered a handful of changes coming in the future.

This includes the Flare Gun, which as leaker Mang0e_ pointed out, could be set to return to the battle royale after a spell in the vault, but with a little bit of a boost too. 

“The flare gun may be coming back to core modes soon,” the leaker tweeted on October 15. “The duration for marking enemies was re-added and increased to 15 seconds.”


While this is not set in the stone, as the leaker tweeted that it may return, some fans will be hoping that the Flare Gun does return – especially given its reported buff.

This increase in time with marking enemies would certainly make players think twice about ignoring the chance to use the Flare Gun. But, as ever, it’ll be up to Epic to make the final call.
