Fortnite: how to skydive through floating rings - VG247

Dropping from the Battle Bus is usually about speed and location, but a new weekly challenge in Fortnite will make you rethink your flight path.

One of the additions to Fortnite Week 10 Challenges is to skydive through 10 different floating rings in the sky.

That sounds easy enough, but you want to make sure you maximise your fall, and there is definitely a knack to it. Let’s show you how.

How to skydive through floating rings

  • As the Battle Bus flies across the map you’ll see coloured rings between you and the floor. These are what you need to skydive through.
  • Rings are placed at different heights, so pick the one you want to target and make the jump.
  • As you approach the ring you should pop your glider to slow your descent, making it easier to control your steering.
  • Try and position yourself directly above a ring with the glider, then hit X to freefall again and bomb straight through it.
  • Drift through a ring and you’ll hear an audio clue letting you know you were successful.
  • It’s possible to skydive through two rings in one go if you aim for a high one to begin with and then drift with the glider towards a much lower one.
  • Be aware that if you’re spending more time in the sky, other players will already have landed and are most likely armed. Make sure you land away from heavily populated areas or risk getting sprayed with lead.
  • Skydive through 10 rings and the challenge is completed.

No rewards for Skydiving through rings?

Update: Epic has warned that players may not be getting full recognition for their efforts when skydiving through rings.

We’ve seen reports of players receiving partial credit for the “Skydive through floating rings” weekly challenge and are investigating!

If it’s anything like previous problems, expect the full reward to become unlocked once Epic tinkers with the screwdrivers to fix it. You should be safe to do this challenge and get the reward afterwards.

Now that’s done, you’d better track down the hidden giant Battle Star between the Stone Circle, Wooden Bridge, and a Red RV.

This final week of challenges is also your last chance to catch up on any you might have missed before the start of Fortnite Season 4. Check ’em all out below.
