Fortnite Cannon Locations - where to deal damage to opponents with a Pirate Cannon

As one of the new additions to arrive in Fortnite Season 8 (opens in new tab), the Fortnite Cannons are definitely in keeping with the general pirate theme currently taking over Fortnite (opens in new tab). There are two different ways you can use a Pirate Cannon - either fire out a cannonball to deal damage, or climb into the barrel and launch yourself over great distances - and if you're working on the Fortnite Battle Pass Challenges (opens in new tab) then you'll need to employ both techniques. For Week 2 you need to deal 100 damage with a Pirate Cannon, which can be achieved with a single direct hit, or several close shots which cause 50 splash damage. Week 4 tasks you to launch yourself through structures with a Pirate Cannon, so get ready to become a human cannonball! We've searched the island to bring you all of the Fortnite Cannon locations, so you can work through both of those challenges and beat them as fast as possible.

When I'm not knee-deep in a game to write guides on, you'll find me hurtling round the track in F1, flinging balls on my phone in Pokemon Go, pretending to know what I'm doing in Football Manager, or clicking on heads in Valorant.
