Professional CS:GO player Oleksandr ‘Fortnite Battle Royale

The Ukranian is widely considered as one of the best Counter-Strike: Global Offensive players in the world, and has started to play Fortnite Battle Royale as part of his popular Twitch streams.

S1mple has been playing the game for less than the week, but some of the game’s mechanics, or lack thereof, are starting to frustrate the Na’Vi AWPer.

StarladderS1mple has started playing Fortnite Battle Royale during his Twitch streams.

While playing with professional Fortnite Battle Royale competitor Erikas ‘ErycTriceps’ Vaitkevicius, s1mple was disappointed to hear that he couldn’t change his reticle, and aired his grievances about how the game’s chance loot system means players can get an advantage early on.

“In the beginning, the one who’s got the biggest shield is winning, if you know how to shoot,” the Ukranian said. “Of course we can build, but we have no [wood] in the beginning.”

S1mple is also unimpressed with the game’s lack of customizable crosshairs. Upon finding out that everyone is forced to use the same one, he said: “That’s so bad”. 

For the Na’Vi star, the fact that the settings are locked in Fortnite Battle Royale is a far cry from Counter-Strike where players can adjust and change tiny details like screen resolutions.

While CS:GO is the NaVi member’s game of choice, he has proved that his incredible skill transfers from one game to the other, even managing to secure a few wins in his first day on the battle royale title.

He still has a lot to learn though, as shown in a hilarious moment when S1mple jumped off a Slipstream without realizing that he needed Glider Redeploy to land safely. 

While teammate ErycTriceps floated with ease, the Ukranian slammed into the ground and needed his giggling teammate to revive him.

With NaVi not currently scheduled to take part in any upcoming tournaments in June, S1mple will have plenty of time to practice on Fortnite Battle Royale before he has to turn his attention back to CS:GO.

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.
