Fortnite players have asked for a ranking system to the game for a long time prompting widespread frustration over the missing feature, but one idea could be the answer to easily integrating the competitive component.

Epic Games have helped create an extensive log of tournaments and events for its battle royal, but that still hasn’t quelled the concern from fans over the game’s lack of a more competitive environment.


In a post, Reddit user easkate outlined their idea for a ranking system influenced by Rocket League that could see a similarly effective structure introduced to Fortnite.

Introducing, Fortnite: Ranked Royale! A ranked mode is desperately needed in Fortnite, so I decided to design one! from r/FortNiteBR

The concept would introduce “Ranked Royale” as a tiered ranking system consisting of Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Champion that echoes the structure from other popular games.


Within those ranks there would be four sub-tiers for players to move through that would either rank up or down with their performances.

The idea didn’t give a thorough explanation to what factors would contribute to a player’s rank, seeing as players hold Fortnite kills and Victory Royales in different esteem.

Epic GamesFortnite has provided a wealth of competitive offerings, except for a ranked system.

That being said, there would be a merit to including sub-tiers because of the wildly varying experiences players ranging from amateurs to pros can have in a given game.


The concept was met with some hesitation from fans, but overall the idea seemed to strike the right chord with a lot of commenters.

From a fan’s perspective there was still indecision about the correct implementation of such a structure, whether or not Ranked or a previously proposed skill based matchmaking would be a better fit for the battle royale.

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.
