FaZe’s Nate Hill introduces unique Fortnite ranking system concept

Professional Fortnite player FaZe Nate Hill has introduced a unique ranking system idea for the popular battle royale title, as posted in a Tweet on November 17.

Hill’s idea for the system takes from the sport of golf, rewarding competitive events based on their significance and holding playoffs for top competitors who perform well throughout the year.


“Pro Fortnite could use a ranking system like golf,” Hill wrote. “Rewarding consistency and significance of events. Then hold playoffs like FedEx Cup for those who play well all year. Too many questionable top 10 lists out here.”

FaZe content creator Ricky Banks appeared to agree with Hill’s idea, replying to his Tweet saying, “You’re slept on big time.”


While Hill’s concept addresses a need for a formal ranking system for the game, it also appears to have been made in response to the widespread Top Ten lists of Fortnite players, which have recently been making their way throughout social media.

In fact, one of these lists was made by 100 Thieves’ Kenith, who jokingly placed Ryan Reynolds, Gordon Ramsay, and other celebrities and fictional characters in his Top Ten ranking players.

Although Fortnite’s Fall Skirmish series provided rankings for its ‘Clubs’, a global list of current leaders is still missing from the game – not to mention the absence of a wider competitive circuit outside of Epic’s Skirmishes, in general.


While competitive Fortnite continues to develop, Hill’s idea might have introduced an important concept for both future tournaments and player rankings for the title.

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)

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.
