The 14 Days of Summer event continues in Fortnite: Battle Royale, delivering daily challenges that are available for the duration of the event, which runs until July 16. Some of these are quite easy, while others are most easily done with a guide or map. Case in point: Epic Games asks you to pop party balloon decorations. It's one of the more satisfying challenges, provided you can avoid the frustration of not knowing where the balloons are in the first place. Here's what you need to know about how the challenge works and where to find the party balloons around the map.
Where Are Party Balloon Decoration Locations?
You can find party balloon decorations all around the map--we've found more than a dozen scattered throughout the island. A common location is where you find the beach parties, which are part of an earlier 14 Days of Summer challenge. If you haven't done that one yet, you can double up--just head to those locations, do a dance, and pop the balloons.
You can see all of the party balloon decorations we've found in the map below. These are found at ground level and are attached to another object, such as lounge chairs or coolers. If you can get a clear line of sight, you can actually take these out from long distance, as we explained further below. Whatever the case, you'll need to do a bit of hiking, but you can just land right at one of these points at the start of a match to expedite the process.
How To Pop The Party Balloons
This is quite straightforward, given this is a shooting game: you just shoot the balloons to pop them. You can also use your pickaxe if you want to save your ammo or haven't found a weapon. But it's notable that you can use a gun, because this means long-range weapons like snipers will allow you to dispatch those no-good, rotten balloons without actually having to get close to them.
Something else to bear in mind is that certain locations have a bunch of balloons near each other. While each individual bunch only counts as one decoration popped--you have to pop five in all--these other balloon bunches in the same location do each count. You can see this in action in the video above.
Party Balloons Challenge Reward
Complete this challenge and you'll earn yourself a spray called Sunny, which paints a cute little sun when used. You'll also be one step closer to earning the Smoothie back bling, which is available to anyone who completes all 14 of the challenges in the 14 Days of Summer event. These are available to all Fortnite: Battle Royale players, whether or not they own the current Battle Pass.
