Professional Fortnite player and FaZe Clan member Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney tried out the new in-game ‘tournament’ mode recently, but the pro player was not impressed whatsoever.

Tournament mode is the latest playlist addition to Fortnite, challenging players to various different competitive matches in Solos, Duos and Squads.

It allows aspiring competitive players an opportunity to try their hand at something a little more serious than regular matches, and doesn’t force the use of third party websites, running tournaments or wager matches of their own.

However, Tfue doesn’t think that Epic Games have executed the system as well as they could have, calling the on-going solo mode “shit”.

Currently, the only option available is the ‘Alpha’ tournament, which is a solo based game type which runs from October 16 – October 21.

But, when a viewer sarcastically commented on how entertaining it was, Tfue said “yeh, this tournament fucking sucks dude. It’s not really fun to watch, it’s definitely not fun to play. It’s basically just shit.”

There is still a lot of other tournaments to come, with the first Duos event starting on October 23, called the ‘Bets’ tournament.

There will also be the first iteration of Friday Night Fortnite on October 19, which will be a squad tournament ran every week.

But, with not a great deal to play for currently, for someone like Tfue specifically these tournament game types may not have enough flair, especially when streaming to tens of thousands of people.

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.
