Hunting down Bounty Targets for Gold Bars in Fortnite is an extremely enjoyable task, and the entire process from start to finish is an adrenaline rush. From tracking down the target to eliminating them, it’s all one majestic orchestrated symphony of death. That said, Bounty Targets manage to get away unscathed at times.
Nevertheless, since each bounty is only worth 100 Gold Bars, players can call it a day and get on with the match. However, in week three of Chapter 3 Season 4, Epic Games is sweetening the deal by offering 20,000 XP to eliminate the Bounty Target. While this may seem challenging, there are ways to get the job done.
Keep in mind that although a Marksman Rifle offers more bullets per magazine, the recoil makes the weapon ‘bounce’ about while being fired. This will make hitting the target multiple times rather difficult. For this reason, it’s highly recommended that players try and use the Sniper Rifle in Fortnite.
Although it requires a higher level of skill to use, a single headshot will eliminate the target outright. This will save players the trouble of chasing after the target or giving away their position to nearby opponents. That said, players are free to decide for themselves how they want to approach this challenge.
Is it worth completing Bounty Boards in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4?
Since Bounty Boards can be used to farm Gold Bars, most players assume that it’s the best way to obtain this resource in Fortnite. However, contrary to popular belief, this is not the case. Successfully eliminating the Bounty Target will grant players only 75 Gold bars.
When compared to the number of Gold Bars that can be easily farmed from Cash Registers and Safes without getting involved in combat, Bounty Boards are a waste of effort. One may argue that the thrill of the hunt is all that matters, but that outlook is not shared by everyone in the community.
Hopefully, Epic Games will one day boost the amount of Gold Bars players get upon eliminating Bounty Targets. As it currently stands, the time and effort invested are not rewarded well.
