As part of Fortnite’s Season 6 Week 7, players must earn eliminations with various weapons to complete challenges. There are three separate challenges that fall into this category: Earn an Improvised Weapon Elimination, a Primal Weapon Elimination, and a Mechanical Weapon Elimination. The hardest thing about these challenges is getting the appropriate weapon type. Eliminations come naturally. If you play a lot, or at least have played a lot during this season, you are probably familiar with how these weapons work.
Newbies may not know which weapons they are, so in this guide, we’ll show you everything you need to know about these challenges. Here̵
How to get improvised weapons
Improvised weapons are the most common and can usually be found in chests or on the ground. You have these weapons pretty much anywhere you land, so as long as you put in a little effort to loot, you shouldn’t have a problem with this. Just be on the lookout for chests, which can be easily tracked by arming Visualize sound effects.
How to Get Primal Weapons
These next two types of weapons are a bit trickier because they require materials to make. First, let’s take a look at how to track down a primary weapon. To get one of these, you have to combine an improvised weapon with any number of animal bones. The number of animal bones you need depends on the weapon you want to craft. You usually need three to four animal bones for a particular weapon. You can obtain these resources by eliminating animals such as wolves, boars or chickens.
The map above (thanks, Fortnite.gg) details all of the animal spawns so you can easily track them down. Likewise, in Boney Burbs, Tarana also sells animal parts. Take down one of the animals mentioned above and they’ll drop an animal bone for you to use. When you have enough, open it stockand then go to To build, and create the Primal weapon of your choice.
How to get mechanical weapons
Mechanical weapons are similar to Primal, except they require mechanical parts. These are obtained from vehicles such as cars, trucks and other steerable vessels. These are more difficult to pinpoint precisely because they don’t usually spawn in the same places every match. However, there are certain spawns like the trailers at Weeping Woods that pop up every match, so you can visit locations like that to find the mechanical parts you need. Just destroy the vehicle and it will drop a part in front of you. Again, once you have what you need, go to the To build menu to create the mechanical weapon of your choice.
With all that in mind, all you have to do is take out an opponent with one of each weapon type to get credit. Each weapon type has its own challenge, so there is no pressure to hit all three eliminations in one match. Keep in mind that you can also pick up one of the above weapon types from an enemy player.
