The 14 Days of Fortnite event is beginning to wind down, as Day 11 is now upon us, which means a new daily challenge and reward is now live.

14 Days of Fortnite brings new challenge and reward becoming every day, giving players the chance to unlock some impressive cosmetic items completely for free over the holiday period.

If you haven’t completed any of the challenges for the previous days – such as the land tricks at different named locations from day 10 – you can visit our handy 14 Days of Fortnite challenge hub.

Day 11 features possibly the easiest challenge in Fortnite history – simply thank the bus driver in 11 different matches.

Thanking the bus driver was a feature first added to the game in Season 5, after a Reddit post demanding that the ability be added gained a lot of attention.

When inside the battle bus, all you need to do is press ‘Down’ on the D-Pad if you’re on Xbox, PS4 or Nintendo Switch, or press B if you’re on PC. If playing on mobile, simply tap the emote button in the top right.

When you’ve thanked the bus driver, it will show up in the kill feed.

Once you’ve done this 11 times – which means you’ll need to play at least 11 matches to complete the challenge – you will unlock the Day 11 reward.

For such an easy challenge, the reward is actually pretty impressive, as you will receive the rare ‘Frozen Axe’ pickaxe.

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.
