Get Headshots

Fighting is the most important aspect of Fortnite, 100 players land and only one emerges victorious.

Headshots are a great way to eliminate opponents quicker as they generally deal between 2-2.5x damage.

A headshot with a Bolt-Action Sniper will instantly eliminate an opponent and send them back to the lobby.

BOOM: Headshots deal 2-2.5x damage and are great for quickly eliminating opponents.

To complete this weeks Legendary Quest, players need to land a total of 100 headshots to opponents.


This should be the easiest Legendary Quest yet as headshots just come with natural gameplay.

Even when you're not trying to, you will land the odd headshot.

Just aim high and secure that XP.
