The EU Fortnite Winter Royale Finals is underway and the Pop-Up Cup format being used for the event has already provided thrilling moments not normally seen in Fortnite.

Epic Games introduced the Scavenger Pop-Up Cup rules with patch v6.30 on November 14 to encourage players to be more aggressive by rewarding them to engage in more fights.


With the EU Winter Royale Finals using this new format, players are using it to pull off some incredibly impactful plays that stretch the limits of what was previously possible.

Epic GamesEpic Games might have a winning formula with the Pop-Up Cup format for their competitions.

One clip, in particular, demonstrates this perfectly as streamer Aphostle managed to use the health regeneration mechanic to survive far longer than he otherwise would have been able to.


Aphostle was forced into an engagement that left him both in the storm and with 11 points of health. Since he managed to come out on top, the kill awarded him with 50 points of health.

Despite being way outside the zone, he made the decision to enter another firefight, nabbing one more kill and getting 50 more points of health.

As the sole survivor of the firefights, Aphostle had the time to loot and heal up to continue the game.


Epic Games has invested a lot in Fortnite as an esport, but passive tactics used by teams and individual players were drawing out matches and making the viewing experience stale.

So far the changes to the rules have provided moments that would not have been possible without them giving this event more chances to thrive.

The EU Winter Royale Finals finishes on December 1, and the NA Winter Royale Finals is set to kick off on December 11.

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

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.
