DrLupo reveals the secret behind his Fortnite prowess

Popular streamer Benjamin ‘DrLupo’ Lupo has revealed the secret behind his Fortnite skills – and no, it’s not the Boombox.

Dr Lupo uploaded a humorous video on January 19 that revealed the real reason for his dexterity in the game, where he attributed his success toward a popular brand of stuffed cookie – the Oreo.


Lupo combined two Oreos to make one, giant Oreo (or perhaps indulged in the new ‘Most Stuf’ Oreos), downing his creation in one bite. The snack must have contained some special power, as he went on to take a serious slew of dubs shortly thereafter.

It looks like fans can rest easy, knowing that the secret formula for Fortnite success lies in one of America’s best-selling cookie brands – or maybe it was just the sugar rush that boosted Dr Lupo to the top.


DrLupo’s latest, hilarious video follows his major fundraiser for St. Jude’s Children’s’ Research Hospital in late December of 2018. The streamer managed to raise a whopping one million dollars for the charity throughout the year, raising $356,000 at Florida’s GuardianCon.

By December 21, the streamer had managed to increase that amount to $730,000, and ended his 24-hour charity livestream on December 22 by meeting his lofty goal of one million dollars.

DrLupo is known for his live streams and Fortnite gameplay, boasting nearly three million followers on Twitch and over one million subscribers on his YouTube channel. With his popularity, it would come as no surprise if fans started eating more Oreos before the drop into the map – say, when’s that Oreo sponsorship incoming?

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)

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.
