Neymar has arrived in Fortnite, and one of the new challenges requires you to drop kick the soccer ball toy 500 meters as Neymar Jr. This challenge comes immediately after you unlock the Neymar Jr Outfit by completing quests for island soccer players, and it’s a fitting first test for the Brazilian soccer star. This challenge sounds complicated on paper, but it’s really simple if you have the right strategy. Here’s how to drop kick the soccer ball toy 500 meters as Neymar Jr in Fortnite.
How to Drop Kick the Soccer Ball Toy 500 Meters as Neymar Jr in Fortnite
To drop kick the soccer ball toy, all you have to do is equip the Soccer Ball Toy emote and then use it while in a game. You do not have to cover the entire 500-meter distance in a single kick. Instead, you can perform multiple smaller kicks until your total distance adds up to 500 meters. You can make this a bit easier by building a small ramp and kicking the ball from the top of it. Don’t build too high, though, because the ball will disappear if it travels too far away from your character and the kick will not count if the ball disappears. The challenge also only tracks horizontal distance and not vertical distance, so building a really high ramp and kicking the ball off of it will not add too many meters to your total distance.
Really, all you have to do is find somewhere secluded where other players will not bother you and just use the Soccer Ball Toy emote over and over again until the challenge is completed. It’s recommended to do this in Team Rumble so you can respawn if you happen to get eliminated. Remember, the ball will despawn if it travels too far away from your character so you don’t want to kick it off of a mountain or something. Try and aim for small 30 meter kicks to be safe. Just kick the ball several times and the challenge will be over in a few minutes.
Once you complete this challenge, you’ll unlock the Joia Trophy Back Bling. There are many other Neymar Jr quests to complete this season in Fortnite, so there’s a lot of work to be done if you want to score all the soccer-themed rewards. Some of the other challenges require you to score a goal with the soccer ball toy or eliminate opponents as Neymar Jr, and completing epic quests will unlock even more items for Neymar.
Fortnite is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices.
