Day seven of the 14 Days of Fortnite holiday event has gone live on December 25 and brought with it a new daily challenge for players to complete.

The seventh challenge requires players to use the Boogie Bomb grenade and/or the new Present item a combined seven times.

There is no requirement forcing players to use each of the two items a certain number of times as long as the combined number of uses add up to seven. 

Furthermore, players do not have to use the Boogie Bomb against an opponent; just throwing it and activating the disco ball grenade is enough to count as a use for the purposes of the challenge. 

As for the new Presents, which act like gift shaped Port-a-Forts, throwing and spawning the giant gift will also count as a use for the challenge.

Upon completion, players will receive the Merry Munchkin pet as a reward, which is an angry little gingerbread character that sits in a chained bucket.

Players will want to complete the challenge and earn the reward because it could eventually become rare and those who do not do the challenge may never get another chance at acquiring it. 

While the premise of the challenge seems simple enough, coming across Boogie Bombs and Presents may take time, depending on the luck of the loot.

Presents can be found through chests, supply drops, and random floor drops, while Boogie Bombs can be found via chests.

While players cannot control their luck when it comes to finding these items, they can improve it by landing in areas that have a lot more chests than others, such as Tilted Towers (35 chests) or Happy Hamlet (26 chests).

Tottenham Hotspur player Dele Alli has roasted England international teammate Kieran Trippier over his gaming skills, bluntly calling him “really bad” at Fortnite.

Alli has recently become a global ambassador for Excel, one of the 10 League of Legends teams in the LEC and a powerhouse of UK esports, having made clear his love of gaming in recent years with his streams on Twitch.

Dele sat down to talk about his love of gaming with Excel, discussing FIFA, Fortnite, and some of the other top footballers he’s played with — but had a few less-than-savoury thoughts on his former Spurs teammate’s abilities.

After being asked who’s “not very good at gaming,” Trippier fell immediately into the firing line.

Dele joins a growing list of footballers getting involved in the esports scene in one way or another.

With a laugh at his friend’s misfortune, Dele revealed that the former Spurs man, unfortunately, falls into that category.

“Kieran Trippier was very late to gaming” Dele said, offering his former teammate somewhat of a lifeline. Before cracking up laughing again, the star added: “He jumped on it and he’s got a lot better but, at the start…”

Dele continued: “He joined Fortnite when we had all been playing for a while, and it was the first time he had played with a controller… so if you tell him to press X, he wouldn’t know which was X.”

Not content with letting his name be slandered in the gaming world, Kieran himself quickly responded with some laughing emojis, backing himself up by clarifying that he actually “wasn’t that bad,” though it doesn’t sound great for the full back.

Now, surely, fans will be desperate to see Dele and Kieran go head-to-head with one another to see if the latter is really as bad as he sounds.
