The Neymar Jr. Fortnite skin had some interesting challenges. One of the challenges involved players dropping a soccer ball 500 meters in Fortnite.
Although the challenge seems a little complicated, it is not as complicated as it seems. This is probably one of the easiest challenges on the Neymar Jr. Fortnite challenges list.
Neymar Jr. Challenge: How to drop a soccer ball in Fortnite?
Although this is a very simple challenge, players must own the soccer ball emote and Neymar Jr. Fortnite skin in-game. To get the soccer ball toy emote, players must speak to one of the football player NPCs on the island. To earn the Neymar Jr. Fortnite skin, players must complete five quests from these football player NPCs in the game.
Once they have completed these two quests, players must begin building what is known as a stairway to heaven in Fortnite. Once this ramp is built, players simply need to climb up this ramp to the highest point and toss the ball from there into oblivion.
The challenge requires players to kick the ball for only 500 yards, so players will need to kick the ball multiple times to complete the challenge. They could also build the platform very high to complete the challenge in one go.
If the players attempt the challenge multiple times, it would be wise to throw the soccer ball in different directions. The terrain in Fortnite is not uniform, so players may need multiple attempts to complete this.
Although it sounds easy, building such a high ramp can put players in a precarious position. Players should have a team with them to protect them while they build high up or attempt this challenge in Team Rumble because people are always building tall structures there.
The “kick a soccer ball” challenge was also plagued with an issue. If the ball disappeared from the player’s sight before touching the ground, the distance traveled by the ball was not counted. This issue has only affected a few people and should probably be fixed with a patch.
