FaZe Clan’s Ricky ‘Banks’ Banks and Dennis ‘Cloack’ Lepore were left in both shock and hysterics and while watching a controversial tiebreaker at the $1.5 million PAX West Fortnite Summer Skirmish tournament.

The final day of qualifiers saw two players in join 33rd place (the final transfer spot to the finals on September 3) and eventually it came down to a coin flip to decide who moved on in the competition!


This left FaZe’s professional Fortnite captain, Cloak, and team owner, Banks, in a state of shock as they watched the event on Cloak’s Twitch stream:

In a state of disbelief, Banks can be heard exclaiming “If this motherfucker flipped a coin in front of me and told me I wasn’t moving on, I don’t know what I would do!”


Cloak spends the majority of the clip in hysterics as Banks continues to shout “WHAT IS THIS SHIT?!” and point out that the unfortunate loser of the flip, Colton ‘Colton’ Masters, had not just lost out on a chance in the finals, but also a staggering $5,000!

While spectating FaZe men are clearly finding the entire situation funny, they also make it known that they don’t particularly approve of the entire situation.

And they weren’t the only ones – a number of fans, players and personalities expressed their concern at the randomness of the tiebreaker when so much money is on the line, including OpTic Gaming’s Robert ‘WizKay’ Simone:



Epic Games have stood by their decision, making it clear that the two players could not be told apart by any other means and that the coin flip was a last option and one that players were aware of.

Either way, with new suggestions ranging from 1 vs 1 Playground Mode deciders to more detailed statistics allowing for tiebreaks based on damage, it seems unlikely that that Cloak and Banks will be left in such hysterics in future tournaments!

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.
