Epic Games’ $8 million Fortnite ‘Summer Skirmish’ is an eight week long series of competitions, with each week featuring a different set of participants and game format.

With the Week 5 of the competition already complete, Epic has released a report recapping the first four weeks of action.


There are several statistics from the Weeks 1-4 that are mentioned in this midway recap that are noteworthy.

First of all, the two longest range eliminations were done by Team SoloMid content creator ‘HighDistortion’ and ‘InTheLittleWood’ respectively.


– The longest range elimination was scored by HighDistortion, with a 267m knockout of MoNsTcR with a Scoped Assault Rifle.

– The longest range sniper elimination was scored by InTheLittleWood on Danzhizzle, with a 247m hunting rifle shot.

HighDistortionTSM’s ‘HighDistortion’ landed the longest range elimination during Weeks 1-4 of the Summer Skirmish.

In terms of total eliminations, the highlight of the first half of Summer Skirmish was in Week 3, with three pairs of teammates “dominating the field” with 24 eliminations.

In Week 3, three pairings were able to dominate the field, topping the group with 24 eliminations

– SKT Ghoul and Ghost DMO

– Mickalow and Robi62

– Greyfox and mouZ Mops.

Another statistic of note was the disparity between the elimination leaders from each of the regions during the Week 4 tournament. 

The NA leader, ‘NotVivid,’ had 10 less eliminations than ‘VP Jamside,’ who paced the EU group that week.


Week 4 saw a sizable gap between the elimination leaders from each region. Day One was very tightly packed at the top.

On Friday NotVivid was able to edge out the pack with 16 eliminations.

On Saturday, VP Jamside went off, wracking up an impressive 26 eliminations across the 9 games, averaging just short of 3 eliminations per match.

The reason why these statistics are highlighted in this midway report is because Epic wanted to properly shout out some of the Summer Skirmish participants, since certain in-game numbers can be hard to achieve and/or maintain with lobbies full of great players.

A general note about statistics… it’s really difficult to pull off consistent great placements or high elimination games with a lobby full of some of Fortnite’s best players. We wanted to properly salute the talented players that have participated each week.

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 after knocking an opponent back with Storm’s Whirlwind Blast (1,000)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Coral Castle (500)

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.
