Former FaZe Clan Fortnite star Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore claims that stream snipers and griefers played a huge part in his inability to qualify for the Fortnite World Cup.

While many competitive Fortnite fans may have thought that Cloak and duo partner Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney would be shoe-ins to qualify for the World Cup, the duo failed to make the grade.

Despite dominant performances, the former FaZe Clan men fell short in the hopes of qualifying for the duos portion – with Tfue ultimately qualifying for the solo part of the event, while Cloak will have to watch from afar. Now, though, Lepore has lifted the lid on why he thinks they failed to qualify together. 

FaZe CloakCloak and Tfue have been a Fortnite duo since the beginning

During his appearance on the Courage and Nadeshot show, Cloak explained: “Epic removed anonymous mode. Turner (Tfue) streams to 300,000 people – our qualifiers. We are first every single week by 10-15 points.”

He continued: “As soon as we get to the end, the people who know they aren’t going to qualify end up being in our games multiple times and stuff like that – We end up choking. A lot of times there is nothing we can blame but ourselves, but 7 of the 9 weeks in qualifiers we have been under five points from qualifying.”

Cloak also stated that the RNG (random number generator) aspect of Fortnite Battle Royale played a big role too, with some pros being able to nullify the impact that has on their matches better than others.

Yet, he circled back around to stream snipers and explained that Tfue performs better while streaming and he couldn’t really ask his partner to try not streaming – especially when he peaks at ridiculous viewer counts.

The former FaZe member continued to state that players who realized that they wouldn’t qualify because of time constraints and being behind on points, ultimately decided to turn their attention elsewhere.

While these would-be qualifiers may have been professionals or high-level players, Cloak claimed that: “they are going to do everything in their power to prevent other people from qualifying.”

The Fortnite World Cup kicks off on July 26 and runs through July 28 in New York City, with plenty of fans expected to be in attendance.

While he won’t be playing, it remains to be seen if Cloak will attend and cheer on his long-time duo partner.

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.
