Fortnite Player Takes Advantage of the Rocket Launch Party to Set a New Solo Kills World Record

A new record for single game kills in Fortnite has been set at 48, but it did not happen the way you might expect.

It was not Ninja or Myth with a brilliant display of marksmanship to set the record, rather it was a random person who happened to take advantage of unsuspecting players during the rocket launch viewing party.


The rocket launch in Fortnite was a highly anticipated event, due to its potential to change the map significantly. The launch took place from the Evil Lair near Snobby Shores at 1:30 PM EST.

For the most part, players watched side by side in a truce for the opportunity to catch the one time launch. A massive platform was even constructed near Snobby Shores for those that wanted an up close look at the spectacle.


One player did not get the truce memo, however, and now they stand alone with the single game solo kills record. Elemental_Ray played smart instead of hard, knocking out the viewing platform that 48 players were standing on, eliminating all of them by way of fall damage.

No one is sure if Elemental_Ray was planning to ruin the party with the 3000 IQ play all along, or if they are simply a kid that didn’t know an event was about to happen.

One thing is certain, pro Fortnite players will have a very hard time beating the new solo kills record and at least 48 people did not get a good look at the rocket launch. Check out the clip below to see the new record.

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.
