Brett ‘Fortnite and decided to charge him for a revive, causing his partner to leave the match altogether.

Sometimes your best moments in Fortnite come when you mess around with a random player. While it was fun for Dakotaz, we can’t say the same thing about his partner.


When his random duo partner was eliminated, Dakotaz was moving to pick up his Reboot Card, but instead made some demands before he did so.

Epic GamesDakotaz is famous for his Snorkle Ops skin.

“20 bucks,” he said. “20 bucks and I’ll get your reboot. I’m teaching you a hard lesson right now, 20 bucks is the price. You got PayPal?”


It was after this that his teammate was fed up and decided to leave the game entirely before Dakotaz was able to apologize.

“He left!” he exclaimed. “Oh my God, bro! Noooo! Oh my God! It’s seven years of bad luck, bro! Oh my God, noooooo!”

His teammate probably didn’t want to shell out 20 dollars just for a revive so instead of getting his PayPal set up, he left the game instead.


It just goes to show you that not everyone has the time to sit around to be trolled when they could already be in another lobby playing again.

With that said, DK did feel bad about making the young player leave as it’s possible they didn’t realize it was all an elaborate joke.

Making somebody disconnect is a good feeling in many games but not in a team-based game, especially when it’s your own teammate leaving because of you.


There’s no telling who’s on the other end of your jokes and how they’ll take them, so this could potentially be a cautionary tale about how to talk to your random teammates in the future.

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)

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.
