The Legendary challenge in Fortnite this week is to deal damage with crossbows. If you’re new to Fortnite, you might be wondering where to find a crossbow. They haven’t made an appearance in Fortnite since they were last vaulted after a Valentine’s Day event a few years ago. Well, they’re back, in the form of Cupid’s Crossbow. Here’s where you can find them and some tips on how to use them to complete this week’s challenge.
Where to find the crossbow
Cupid’s Crossbows can be found almost anywhere you can find weapons in Fortnite, including as ground loot and in chests. These special crossbows only come in Epic rarity, so they will be pretty easy to spot from afar.
Despite being marked as a higher-tier weapon, they are actually quite common drops right now thanks to this week’s love-themed Hearts Wild challenges. You won’t find them in droves the way you might more common firearms, but it only took our editors a few minutes to find their crossbows playing at a normal pace.
How to deal damage with the crossbow
Once you find a crossbow, you’ll see that they have infinite arrow ammo, so you don’t have to worry about preserving bolts to complete this challenge. It operates similarly to the bolt-action sniper rifle. You can aim down sights to scope in and fire like normal, but remember that it is best used at long ranges.
We recommend having secondary weapons on hand until you can find a good sniping spot to safely deal some damage with the crossbow from afar–if you run around with the crossbow out, you risk being caught at a disadvantage in close-range combat.
