Fortnite Downtown Drop: How to collect a basketball, coin, and shoe in a single match

Published

on

Looking for help collecting a basketball, coin, and shoe in a single match of the new Fortnite LTM? The Fortnite Downtown Drop challenges are more than likely driving some of you a bit mad. The LTM has a Marmite effect on many: you either love it or you hate it. One of the latest challenges to unlock for the Jordan brand mashup you to collect three different objects in a single match, which if you’re struggling with the fiddly controls is no mean feat.

Of course grabbing one of the hundreds of coins dotted around the level is easy, and you’ll more than likely have already spotted one or two shoes, but grabbing a basketball is pretty tricky unless you’re confident with the movement mechanics. Fortunately, we’ve managed to find one basketball that’s easy to grab if you follow our advice.

So join us as we show you how to collect a basketball, coin, and shoe in Fortnite’s Downtown Drop LTM, which will hopefully help you grab a new piece of skateboarding back bling.

Where to collect a basketball, coin, and shoe in Fortnite

The first piece you’ll want to grab is a Fortnite Downtown Drop basketball. There are a few of these across the map that you can get if you spend a few hours practicing your movement and chaining ramps together. However, if you just want to jump in and complete this challenge as soon as possible then we have a better idea.

Down the very first ramp of the map on the left-hand side you’ll spot a cage with a basketball court inside. On the top of the cage you’ll spot a line of coins ending with a basketball. Enter the cage, back yourself into the same corner as the basketball, lob an impact grenade just in front of you, and jump just before it detonates. This should send you soaring over the lip of the cage in just the right spot to grab the basketball.

Next up, you’ll want to grab a shoe. These are typically in hidden areas around the edges of the map, but there’s one right at the start that’s very easy to grab. Simply keep to the left side of the spawn and as the race begins continue forwards, seeking out an alleyway on the left side of the street as you go, at the end of it you should spot a shoe.

There’s also a shoe in the same alley where you find Jonesy behind a wooden fence in case you want to kill two birds with one stone. We’re not going to waste your time telling you how to find the coins as they’re all over the map.

Chapter 3 Season 2 Live Event: Everything we know so far

Published

By

The first live event of Chapter 3 is expected to take place in less than six weeks. Here’s everything we know so far, based on various leaks.

Leaked Map Stages

All future stages for the territories controlled by both The Seven and Imagined Order have been leaked by data-miner Hypex. The maps show the Resistance will retake control of most of the Island, leaving only Command Cavern and Loot Lake for the IO. The final stage will lead the story directly into a live event, with the Imagined Order having little options left for victory.

Leaked Quest Voice Line

Epic also recently added new voice lines for the upcoming Week 6 Quests which, when reviewed closely, appear to tease the main story of a new live event. The Agent Jones character claims “one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production”, seemingly hinting that the new event could be related to Chapter 2 Season 2’s The Device, which was also focused around a “Doomsday Device”.

A transcript of the Agent Jones voice lines can be found below:

“This will not come as a surprise, but IO management loves Doomsday machines – loves them! There’s even a doomsday division at HQ, oh man their softball team is awful but they will one day destroy us all so… kind of a wash. We have very credible intel that one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production. We need to find out everything we can while we still can. Hit the field, I’ll prep the cameras . . . I have a very bad feeling that we are not ready for what we’re gonna find out.”

Doomsday Landmark

According to Fortnite data-miner GMatrixGames, a new Landmark code-named ‘DDMachine’ has been added to the game’s tags, suggesting that the Doomsday Device described by Agent Jones could be added to the map in the future.

Less than six weeks remain until the potential live event. We’ll keep you updated with the latest leaks and official announcements.

In preparation for the upcoming item vote, the Boogie Bomb and Rift-To-Go have both been unvaulted for a trial period until April 25.

Players can now find the items scattered throughout the Island from Chests, Llamas, Supply Drops, Loot Sharks and ground loot. Once the short trial period ends on April 25 at 8AM ET, new gold funding stations will go live in-game on the following day to let players “fund” the item they want to see return permanently (for the rest of Season 2). The item that becomes 100% funded first will automatically be reintroduced to the loot pool as soon as the goal, of which the exact value is unknown, is reached.

We’ll keep you updated on which item gets unvaulted.
