If you need to complete Fortnite bounties for a particular quest, or you just want to hunt down another player for a reward, then you'll need to find one of the Fortnite bounty boards to get things started. There was a time when you could also meet with certain Fortnite characters to get a bounty underway, but now they are exclusively reserved for the boards dotted around the island. More bounty boards have been installed as a result of this to meet demand, and as some Fortnite quests now require you to use them it pays to know where to find one quickly, so we're here to help with that.

Fortnite bounty boards are useful in a number of ways. Not only can they help you track down nearby opponents or complete quests, but start successfully completing Fortnite bounties will also earn you Fortnite gold bars, which can then be invested in new weapons and upgrades, useful items, or even contributing to the ongoing war effort.

Once you accept one of the Fortnite bounties, you'll get a notification on your screen with the name of the enemy player you need to eliminate, along with a picture of their character so you know who to look for. A yellow circle will appear on your map, giving you a rough idea of where your target is, and although it only updates every few seconds you can still use it to roughly track their direction of movement. When you find the target, take them out and you'll receive a Bounty Complete notification along with your reward for completing your Fortnite bounty.

If another player eliminates the enemy player before you do, you'll get a Bounty Poached notification instead, though interestingly you'll still receive a smaller gold bars reward and for the purpose of quests it counts as one of your complete Fortnite bounties. If you're working through a quest that requires a number of bounties to be completed, it's worth accepting them wherever you can as other players may end up doing the work for you.
