Fortunately, it is not really difficult to track down the soccer characters in Fortnite. This guide will share more details about three locations that you have to focus on.
Finding Soccer Characters in Holly Hedges
The first soccer character location in Fortnite is on the east edge of Holly Hedges. It is a named area on the west side of Fortnite’s map. At that position, you are going to find a goal which is situated against a tall hedge. The NPC is going to be wandering around right in front of it. After finding this soccer player, you are able to interact with them freely and then accept a quest to create several progress on the aforementioned Neymar Jr. challenges.
Finding soccer characters in Pleasant Park
The second soccer character location in Fortnite is at the large field which is within Pleasant Park. From three locations where the soccer players can be found, probably this is the most obvious, due to its size and demarcations. Lots of players are likely to target it as a result. It means that Fortnite players have to expect a bit of competition on the pitch. Accordingly, they have to prepare themselves.
Finding soccer characters in Dirty Docks
The third soccer character location in Fortnite is on a small field which is tucked away at the southeast corner of Dirty Docks. As at the Holly Hedges, this is also a single goal setup, making it little more inconspicuous than the place located in Pleasant Park. Even so, with lots of players who are interested in getting the Neymar Jr. skin in Fortnite, the players should not be too surprised if they meet an enemy or two enemies when they try to approach this NPC.
When you are talking to a soccer character for the very time, you are going to accept a soccer ball toy. It is used in two other Neymar Jr. challenges. More specifically, you are going to be instructed to kick their toy 500 meters and score a goal with it. If you are able to do that, then you will be able to get a special back bling and pickaxe. Nevertheless, you must have the Neymar Jr. skin equipped in order to complete those additional challenges. It means that you have to focus on unlocking the new Fortnite outfit first.
If you are trying this quest after Neymar Jr skin’s debut, the above locations might be really busy to begin with. If they are overrun by the players and you cannot have a full conversation with NPC, it might be worth hanging back until other players are out of the way. Or if you are really struggling, please wait several days until the quests become less famous.
Aside from that, you have to remember that it is possible to pick up some quests from each Soccer character in Fortnite within a single match. Based on some experiences, these were related to utilizing the Soccer Ball toy (rewarded when you speak to one for the first time) and running a certain distance on foot, both easy enough to complete.
Talk to Soccer Character in Fortnite
To talk to a soccer character in Fortnite, simply you need to find the soccer players at the locations explained above. Please interact with them to talk to them. Then, you are going to complete one of the challenges which will unlock the Soccer ball Fortnite toy. It will be required to complete several of the other challenges in Fortnite.
Distance drop kicking Soccer ball toy as Neymar Jr
If you go to the highest point on the Fortnite map and then drop kick the soccer ball toy, it seems like the challenge does not work properly. Sometimes, the players report the challenge completes whilst for others it does not. Your best bet is to kick the ball and make sure the ball is in view once it ends rolling.
