What are Fortnite's ranged weapons?

Fortnite's ranged weapon is just a weapon that does damage from a distance. So that includes every weapon that shoots bullets/projectiles.

This ranged weapon category does not include melee weapons such as the Shockwave Hammer and a player's Pickaxe or Harvesting Tool.

Fortnite's approach to defeating an adversary with no ranged weapons

When players eliminate a player, they must remove all firearms and bullet weapons from their inventory. The best way to do this is to knock an enemy off with whatever weapon they want, then remove all of their ranged weapons and melee the opponent until they’re eliminated.

If for some reason you don't have the Shockwave Hammer, just get out your Pickaxe and do it the old-fashioned way. This should complete your Quest and give you an understanding of what is considered a ranged weapon in Fortnite.
