Since the mission is to use no ranged weapons while on feet as the name suggests, the only best option available for you in the weaponry is the Shockwave Hammer. Before you complete this task you would require to undergo some training to have good timing and the right skill.

You can start off by trying to kill one enemy using Shockwave Hammer. The easier way to do this is by starting to play duos, trios, or squad matches. When a teammate from the enemy team has been knocked out, to eliminate them completely you can use the Shockwave hammer.

This method is much more convenient and streamlined. It will help you complete the challenge in one go. It is also highly recommended that you finish the task before the mid-game ends.

Shockwave Hammer is a recent addition to Fortnite. Players can use this weapon to bring down opponents or use its unique feature that lets you travel anywhere on the map. This weapon could be a bit difficult to find. So you can look for it in the places we suggest here.

Shockwave hammers can be found after landing in the match. You can go look for this melee in Oathbound chests. This weapon generally spawns in landmarks that are medieval-themed.

Apart from these special chests, you can even find the Shockwave Hammer in ordinary/ rare chests, Supplies, drops, and during rare events such as floor loot in Fortnite. However, it would be very rare to find the hammer in these other places so it’s recommended that you go for the outbound chest in Fortnite Chapter 4, Season 1.

Other than this you can even acquire this tool by eliminating those opponents who have this weapon in their loadout. Players should think of obtaining Shockwave Hammer in Fortnite only if they are in the mid-game and failed to get a Shockwave Hammer earlier.

These are all points to keep in mind if you want to win the no ranged weapons in Fortnite. No ranged weapons quest is now live on Fortnite. All the best for your quest!
