How to Complete the “Eliminate Opponents with Shotguns at 15 Meters or Less” Challenge in Fortnite

The Infiltrator Pump Shotgun is a popular weapon in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 and is essential for robbing Vaults. This close-range weapon has a decent rate of fire, good range, and a tight spread, making it a go-to choice for players. Mastering this weapon in combat can make a significant difference in-game.

For the “This Season” challenge of Week 1 in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4, players will need to eliminate opponents with a shotgun at 15 meters or less. This challenge is focused on combat and may be challenging for newcomers. However, the reward of 24,000 experience points makes it worth taking the risk in close-range combat.

To complete this challenge, players need to do two things: find a shotgun and eliminate five opponents.

Finding a shotgun can be done by searching the ground or opening Chests. Alternatively, players can steal Kit's Charge Shotgun from Kado Thorne's Vault. It's important to note that higher rarity shotguns generally perform better in combat. If a common shotgun is found at the start of the match, it's recommended to use it until a better one can be found or upgraded using an Upgrade Bench.

Once equipped with a shotgun, players need to seek out opponents to fight and eliminate. Landing at Eclipsed Estate, Sanguine Suites, or Relentless Retreat, which contain Kado Thorne's Vaults, provides a higher chance of encountering opponents. In the early minutes of the match, it's possible to eliminate two to three opponents using a shotgun. It's essential to stay close to opponents when dealing the final blow for better chances of success.

It's important to note that this challenge will be available throughout Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4, giving players ample time to improve their close-range combat skills and earn the 24,000 experience points.
