FaZe Clan’s Tyler ‘Tfue’ Tenney has given his thoughts on the current Grappler and Double Barrel shotgun meta in Fortnite.

Tfue was broadcasting Fortnite when he spotted an enemy building off the side of a structure close to Flush Factory. Thinking quickly, Tfue was able to use the Grappler to zipline his way up into his opponent’s base, before eliminating him with the double-barrel shotgun.

The FaZe member seemed to immediately feel sympathy for his fallen adversary, saying “imagine looting for the whole game, just so someone could grapple/double barrel you.”

Tenney went on to give his opinion on the meta, stating; “Epic, I hope you’re listening man, get it gone. Get rid of it. It’s too much”, and leaving little no doubt that he’s not a fan.

This maneuver has become extremely popular with Fortnite player thanks to the Grappler’s ability to quickly fire players into situations that they normally would need to build up to, alerting their enemy well before their arrival.

The double-barrel shotgun has come under scrutiny from fortnite fans due to it’s incredible power. Most feel it’s by far the best weapon to use at close range, and TSM Daequan took to Twitter to suggest balancing solutions in an attempt to bring the power of the shotguns closer together.

Epic Games are well known for listening to fans feedback, and adjusting items and weapons in game if they feel they are too powerful. In the last update, they vaulted the Drum Gun, and they also famously vaulted the jetpack item when they felt it was too strong.

There has yet to be an announcement about the future of Fortnite’s meta the Grappler, but Epic’s regular updates and patches mean that fans of the game are rarely kept waiting long for a change.

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.

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.
