Fortnite keeps things fresh with map changes, skins, and challenges that allow players to participate in fun events like Fortnitemares. You can win unique rewards with Fortnitemares by completing themed challenges. Plus, there are plenty more spooky surprises to find around the Island, such as Jack O' Lanterns.

All Jack O' Lantern Locations in Fortnite

Jack O' Lanterns are a part of the festive Halloween decor that is spread around the map during Fortnitemares. They usually appear alongside other decorations like gravestones, candy buckets, and blow-up ornaments. On the map, you can find them primarily at residential houses or commercial business areas.

How to destroy Jack O' Lanterns with a Ranged Weapon in Fortnite

Our first reaction when completing challenges to "destroy" things is to smack them with our pickaxes/harvesting tools, but for this challenge, it instructs explicitly to destroy them with a Ranged Weapon. Don't let the word choice in the title confuse you because this challenge is super straightforward. All you have to do is shoot the pumpkins with any gun until they break. You don't have to be any distance away from it, which means you can even stand on top of it if you like.

Head to the festive locations above to track down some Jack O' Lanterns and get smashing. Just be sure to use a gun, and you'll be another step closer to claiming your Fortnitemares rewards. There are plenty more Fortnitemares challenges to complete, so keep a lookout for more helpful guides.
