How To Get Easy Headshots In Fortnite Season 5 Chapter 2

Gotta aim for the head

This week’s Legendary challenge tasks us with scoring headshots and a lot of them at that.

If you want to land easy headshots and blast through the challenge here are our top tips!

Be sure to check out our full challenge guide for all the Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 Week 6 Challenges.

Tip 1 - Team Rumble

We will say this time and time again, these challenges are made for Team Rumble!

You and your opponents will respawn over and over, giving you plenty of time to rack up headshots.

On occasion, you can even find AFK players, or make easy targets for scoring headshots!

Tip 2 - Knock 'Em Down

There may actually be an advantage to playing a non-Team Rumble mode! Shocking we know!

Playing in a team game, or targeting IO guards, could also be a good option as headshots count on downed enemies.

This lets you earn some pretty easy points, and IO Guards are particularly easy to headshot in general!

Tip 3 - Shotgun Approach

The Shotgun Approach is simple!

You’ll want to find a Tactical Shotgun and then get up close and personal with enemy players.

The shotgun reticle is so large it takes up most of an enemy’s head, meaning as long as you get it mostly on target you should score a couple of headshots.

The Tactical Shotgun has automatic fire too, so just hold the trigger down and you should get a couple every encounter.

Tip 4 - Aim and Spray

For this, we’d recommend getting a Purple or Gold SMG as they have a smaller spread than some other types.

Then, try and stay a medium distance from enemies and aim at their heads.

The reticle is much smaller but you’ll deal shots faster, and they’ll be weaker when they hit.

Unlike a shotgun, you aren’t like to two-shot a player with an SMG and if you get your aim right you could get several headshots in a row no problem!
