Fortnite Golden Balloon Location Guide (Week 9 Challenges)

If you’re planning to complete all the challenges for Week 9 of Fortnite’s seventh season, you’ll need to hunt down some balloons and pop them. Sounds fun, right? It is! However, it can also be a bit frustrating since the island is very big, and those pesky balloons can be a bit inconspicuous. The challenge requires you to pop “10 golden balloons,” which is slightly misleading as they’re closer to silver than golden. To make it easier for you, we’ve put together a guide for where they can be found.

All you’ve got to do is head to the locations below, locate the balloons, and fire off a shot to pop it. Then, move to the next one, rinse, and repeat until you’ve got all 10. It’s a good idea to pack a weapon with some range as, now and then, you may find people waiting nearby to take you out, so being able to pop them from safety is certainly handy.
