Fortnite LTM Team Rumble, which sent a wave of confusion to the battle royale’s community as to why such a change would be made.

The Fortnite devs landed on an instant fan-favorite when they initially launched Team Tumble on November 27, 2018. While the mode has had its problems in the past, it’s always been a fun option to drop into and be apart of sheer chaos.


With that said, players have been having a hard time trying to see why the devs would change the mode considering it was in a good state for what it offered players.

Epic GamesPlayers jumping into Team Rumble won’t have as high of a kill cap to compete for.

In a July 10 announcement, the Epic Games developers gave their players a heads up on an immediate change that’s going to be cutting some of the fun out in the big team battle for a lot of players.


“The elimination goal in Team Rumble has been decreased from 150 to 100 to shorten match length,” the Fortnite team announced.

The developers didn’t give an official reason for why the sudden change has occurred, leaving the community to speculate the possibilities for the lowered kill goal.

The answer could lie in the Epic Games devs trying to eliminate early leavers who would just jump into the mode to finish up a quick challenge or two, and lowering the kill cap would effectively narrow the window for that happening.


Epic GamesFortnite players are wondering how reducing the cap would solve Team Rumble’s biggest problems.

Yet the announcement was met with players on both sides of the aisle who wouldn’t mind seeing a revert to the new development.

“People who are using the code for purposes of reaching level 100 or to get challenges done,” Twitter user ‘Bruceleewataahh’ replied to someone asking why the change happened. “Basically the mode is being tailored to those people because they make complaints. Epics lack of research makes them gullible enough to think people actually want the cap to decrease.

Similarly, some people think that the developers should focus their attentions of the root cause of the change: “People leave the match anyways… do something about that instead.”


As it stands, Team Rumble will be the frenzy of a mode that players are already used to, but the fun might end sooner than expected.

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.
