CouRage and DrLupo have announced that they will be heading to PAX West this weekend to commentate on the highly anticipated Fortnite Summer Skirmish event.

OpTic Gaming’s content creator, Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop released a statement on Twitter, saying:

This was followed shortly after by a statement from DrLupo, who said:

“If you’re heading to PAX West, expect to see me there – casting the final week of #SummerSkirmish along side CouRage!

So freaking excited. Multiple days of competition. $1.5 million on the line.”

Having made his name as a Call of Duty commentator for MLG and the CWL, CouRage hung up his casting microphone and suits in March of 2018.

The 24-year-old joined OpTic Gaming as a content creator shortly after (meaning he still spends most of his time in front of a mic but doesn’t have to dress as nicely!) and has quickly become one of the organization’s most popular streamers with his regular Fortnite content.

DrLupo, another Twitch streamer with a massive following, has also been one of the faces of Fortnite Battle Royale since its explosion in popularity.

He has commentated on competitive Fortnite alongside CouRage on a number of occasions, so this is a proven duo.

As an experienced esports commentator and huge Fortnite fan, CouRage is the perfect candidate for providing coverage of events like the Summer Skirmish tournament at PAX West.

The $1.5 million Summer Skirmish competition, which will be open for PAX West attendees to sign up for, was announced earlier this month and will run from August 31 until September 3. 

The final Summer Skirmish event of the year will feature a 3-Stage Solo event with players earning points at the end of each stage. First place will take home $225,000 but even the players finishing 21st-100th will secure themselves a cool $5,000.

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.

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)

Stark Industries will be swarmed by teams looking for the secret Lake House

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.
