Fortnite fans are calling for streamer PLP_JSaturn0 to be disqualified from the Fortnite Winter Royale after a clip taken from his Sunday, November 25 stream suggested he may have been stream sniping Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins.

Both Ninja and JSaturn0 were competing in the qualifiers for the Fortnite Winter Royale, where European and North American players were ranked based on performances in a special tournament playlist. The Top 200 from each continent would progress to the Winter Royale Finals.

During his stream, JSaturn0 was sitting inside a structure he had constructed at Greasy Grove, when he suddenly edited a window into one of his walls, and began firing at a wall, shouting “Ninja! Ninja!” as he did it.

Fortnite fans questioned how JSaturn0 knew a player was there, and how he knew that the player behind the wall was Ninja, even though it didn’t appear to show his name on screen. This led fans to believe that JSaturn0 likely had Ninja’s stream on in the background, and realized the two were close while watching his opponent’s gameplay.

Blevins proceeded to watch the sequence back from JSaturn0’s perspective using Fortnite’s Replay mode.

Ninja refrained from accusing his opponent of stream sniping, instead choosing to watch quietly until the end, where he stated: “He had to have seen me. He’s looking through it right now. I think he sees me break in through the wall, and then he edits down, opens the wall and starts shooting.”

Ninja was involved in a stream sniper controversy earlier in November when he reported a player who he believed to be stream sniping him, which turned out to be false.

Epic Games have yet to comment on the clip or on the possibility that JSaturn0 could be disqualified from the tournament, however, if the developers are able to prove that this was the case, it’s likely he will be removed from the competition for breaking the Fortnite Code of Conduct.

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.

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.
