FaZe Sway responded to the accusations of cheating.

“I was on a call with friends while playing after realizing it was Wistles fighting I chose to leave,” he wrote. “I shouldn’t have changed what I was doing because it was a friend. I never had an intention to team up on anybody so I wanted to clear the air. I’m sorry, I really didn’t mean to do anything wrong but will accept whatever repercussions come my way.”


Original story follows.

Fortnite pro player and FaZe Clan member Sway has been accused of ‘teaming’ during a match in the Solos Cash Cup, by fellow competitive player and streamer Sour.


The second week of Fortnite’s Solos Cash Cup took place on Wednesday, August 28, as players compete online for their share of cash prizes.

As the name implies, these games are played solo, without the help of teammates, but Sour has accused Sway and another player, Wistles, of skirting this rule and playing tactically together.

The Solos Cash Cup is an online competition with cash prizes on the line.

On August 28,  Sour claimed: “Just got teamed on by FaZe Sway and Wistles in the Cash Cup. Is this acceptable in competitive? This sort of thing really puts me off.”


In his tweet, he included footage of what he argues shows the FaZe player helping Wistles in the fight vs Sour, and then proceeding to leave Wistles alone, rather than engaging with him as would be expected.

After the clip gained attention on Twitter, another user posted a clip of Sway and Wistles discussing the incident, with Sway stating “that’s not teaming.”

“I was about to literally kill him-” Sway started, before cutting himself off. “Let’s go our separate ways,” Wistles responded.


Explaining what went down, Sway went on to say “All I see is a fucking Whistle Warrior just jumping into someone’s box.”

The claims sparked debate, with some arguing that it wasn’t a serious tournament and therefore wasn’t as egregious as ‘teaming’ in a more prestigious event.


Others, however, suggested that teaming is cheating regardless of the situation, and with money on the line, Sour was right to be angered with the situation.

Epic Games’ official rules for the Solos Cash Cup state: “Players may not work together to deceive or otherwise cheat other players during any match (“Collusion”). Examples of Collusion include the following:

  • Teaming: Players working together during the match while on opposing teams.
  • Planned Movement: Agreement between 2 or more opposing players to land at specific locations or to move through the map in a planned way before the match begins.
  • Communication: Sending or receiving signals (both verbal and non-verbal) to communicate with opposing players.
  • Item Dumping: Intentionally dropping items for an opposing player to collect.

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.
