This partnership brings together the most prolific players in the Fortnite community and one of America’s most popular fast-casual restaurants in a unique content-focused partnership. The TSM Fortnite House includes Myth – team captain and the second biggest Fornite streamer on Twitch – Daequan, Camills , and Hamlinz. Combined, the team boasts more than 10 million social followers.

Andy Dinh, CEO of TSM, was very excited about his org’s newly forged partnership with Chipotle.

“I’m really excited for this opportunity because TSM gets to represent a brand like Chipotle that we really believe in. I love Chipotle – I eat there every week, if not multiple times a week –  and our players do too. It’s a privilege to partner with an amazing brand that’s leading my generation to better eating habits. I can’t wait to see what TSM and Chipotle can achieve together.”

This announcement marks the return for Chipotle into the world of esports, as they had previously sponsored OpTic Gaming in a temporary deal during their road to winning the CWL Championship in 2017.

Their esports aspirations certainly do make sense since their food is a popular choice among many in the online gaming community, including the likes of popular Twitch streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, who owns one of Chipotle’s highly coveted “celebrity cards.”

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.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 7 Challenges:

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)
  • Eliminations at Craggy Cliffs (3)
  • Enter the Vault in Doom’s Domain
  • Destroy Cobwebs at The Authority (3)
  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory
