Ben ‘DrLupo’ Lupo has vented his frustration at Epic Games and professional players Damion ‘XXiF’ C. and Ronald ‘Ronaldo’ Mach after the duo secured spots at the Fortnite World Cup, despite serving a ban during qualifiers for cheating.

XXiF and Ronaldo finished Week 8 of the World Cup Qualifiers with 91 points in the NA East region, booking a place in the duos portion of the Fortnite World Cup and a chance to compete for a share of the $30 million prize pool.


Many are angry that the duo are allowed to qualify though, as they were banned for 14 days back in Week 3 for working together in solos matches, an offence which Epic Games labelled as an attempt to “undermine the competition.”

DrLupo unhappy that XXiF and Ronaldo allowed to qualify

In a series of Tweets posted by DrLupo following the tournament, the Fortnite World Cup caster made it clear that doesn’t believe either player should have been allowed to qualify for the competition after they had been previously suspended for cheating.


“A cheater qualifying for a [$30 million] tournament is a kick in the junk to the integrity of the Fortnite competitive community,” wrote the streamer. “Love or hate the game, this should be unanimously agreed upon. The bottom line – I feel for everyone who grinds their butts off to work on their gameplay, only to get pushed out of qualification by that duo.”

DrLupo also discussed the situation during his Twitch stream, stating that he doesn’t understand why XXiF and Ronaldo had to cheat, and what Epic should do if they are caught breaking the rules again.

DrLupo said: “What kills me is, they’re good players. Why did they have to cheat in Week 3? We would all have been cheering them on now, but they had to fuck around. Fuck man. What should happen if they’re caught cheating again? Full stop ban. Fool me once? shame on me, dude. Full me twice? Go fuck yourself.”


Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff then asked DrLupo if he was “ecstatic” to cast the duo, with the caster breaking into some fake casting, describing what he would like to say about the pair at Fortnite World Cup.

“Ladies and gentlemen, my name is DrLupo and today pushing for the World Cup championship are a whole lot of gamers who worked their ass off, and two assholes who don’t deserve to be here.”

DrLupo continued: “These two fucking bots who don’t deserve any of this are playing out of their minds. Lasering yet another player who doesn’t shoot back. How many of them are subs, every single one, we just got confirmation.”


“They pushed into another box, another player with no materials, no ammunition, no weapons, and no dream of doing jackshit except for feeding two players who are sadly good enough to compete but for some reason don’t give a fuck about anything.”

While DrLupo and the competitive Fortnite community may not be happy with the decision that allowed XXiF and Ronaldo to compete and qualify for the World Cup, it seems unlikely that Epic Games will remove them from the tournament unless they are found to be cheating again.


As it stands, both players will head to New York City for the Fortnite World Cup Finals, which take place July 26 – 28.

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)
  • Enter the Vault in Doom’s Domain
  • Destroy Cobwebs at The Authority (3)
  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory
  • Drive a car from Sweaty Sands to Misty Meadows in less than 4 minutes without getting out

  • Deal damage to opponents at Coral Castle (500)

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.
