There is nothing more frustrating than running into an aim-botter in Fortnite Battle Royale, which popular streamer Dr DisRespect was harshly reminded of recently.

On November 8, Dr DisRespect and Team SoloMid streamer ‘RealKraftyy’ partnered up to compete in the first-ever running of the $20,000 Code Red Fortnite tournament, a competition that the Doc himself had organized in collaboration with BoomTV and EsportsArena.

In round three of the tournament, which was the WInners Bracket semifinal, the pair were wiped out by a single player during a gunfight at Pleasant Park.

The player hit some pristine shots to first down the Doc and then followed up by annihilating Kraftyy, who was trying to build up and protect his teammate.

The shots that were hit were so pure, that both Doc and Kraftyy could do nothing but react incredulously: “What? No! Are you serious? Ummm, he literally did not miss a shot on me while I was gliding. Like actually didn’t miss.”

However, a closer examination of the sequence in replay mode revealed that the enemy player’s shots were a little too perfect, and it quickly became clear that cheating and unfair play was involved.

Wile this situation may not have been the only factor in the Duo’s eventual loss, it was clearly enough to be a major distraction that threw off their concentration for the remainder of their matches. 

The Doc and Kraftyy ended up losing their round three match, and were dropped down to the Losers Bracket, where they also lost and were eliminated, finishing the tournament tied for 5/6th.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.

Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.

To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
