Finding and Eliminating a Bounty Target with a Sniper Rifle or Marksman Rifle

Hunting Bounty Targets for gold bars in Fortnite is an extremely enjoyable task, and the whole process from start to finish is an adrenaline rush. From tracking down the target to eliminating it, it’s all one majestic orchestrated symphony of death. That said, sometimes Bounty Targets manage to get away unscathed.

Nevertheless, since each bounty is only worth 100 gold bars, players can quit and continue the match. In week three of Chapter 3 Season 4, Epic Games softened the deal by offering 20,000 XP to eliminate the Bounty Target. While this may seem like a challenge, there are ways to get the job done.

Keep in mind that while a sniper rifle offers more bullets per magazine, the recoil will cause the weapon to ‘bounce’ as it fires. This makes it difficult to hit the target multiple times. For this reason, it is highly recommended that players try to use the Sniper Rifle in Fortnite.

While it requires a higher skill level to use, a single headshot will completely eliminate the target. This saves players the hassle of chasing the target or giving away their position to nearby opponents. That said, players are free to decide for themselves how they want to tackle this challenge.

Is it worth completing Bounty Boards in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4?

Since Bounty Boards can be used to craft gold bars, most players assume that this is the best way to obtain this resource in Fortnite. Contrary to popular belief, however, this is not the case. Successfully eliminating the Bounty Target gives players only 75 gold bars.

Compared to the amount of gold bars that can be easily removed from cash registers and vaults without getting involved in combat, bounty boards are a waste of effort. You could argue that the thrill of the hunt is all that matters, but that view is not shared by everyone in the community.

Hopefully one day Epic Games will increase the number of Gold Bars players get when eliminating Bounty Targets. As it stands, the time and effort invested is not well rewarded.
