FaZe pro Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney had one of his Fortnite Pop-Up Cup games ruined by a player using an ‘aimbot’, eliminating him from extreme distance without missing a shot.

The Pop-Up Cup was introduced to Fortnite by Epic Games as a place to test experimental ideas which can limit players health and materials but in a competitive atmosphere. However, for Tfue, there wasn’t much competitive about this clip. 


The Fortnite professional, who is one of the most successful players in the Battle Royale game, was not happy with part of his recent online Pop-Up Cup experience and you really can’t blame him given the circumstances.

FaZe ClanTfue is one of the most successful pro Fortnite players ever.

It’s not the first time either, as Tfue was also taken out by a hacker in Fortnite’s Winter Royale back in November.


Playing in the Duo Pop-Up Cup alongside Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore, the pair found themselves in trouble from the circle and used a Rift to escape from Frosty Flights. While he was gliding back in from the rift, Tfue was beamed by a waiting player below and knocked out of the game.

His FaZe Clan partner fell to the same fate as they were taken out by an extremely accurate rifler who, shockingly, didn’t seem to miss many – if any – shots from distance.

While Tfue did not make any accusations about the player being a possible hacker on stream, he took his frustrations to Twitter. 


The Fortnite professional player tweeted “Aimbot-Up Cup,” clearly still angered by what had happened to him and his duo partner in their game.

Cheating and hacking has become somewhat of an epidemic in the Battle Royale game. Uber popular streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins caught another hacker during his stream on December 15. 

The former Halo professional quickly reported the apparent cheat when they gained a kill that Ninja’s viewers were unable to see.


Ninja has also called upon Epic Games to find a solution for Fortnite’s many stream snipers, stating that if anyone can find an answer to the problem “It’s Epic.”

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.
