Fortnite pros express frustration at the young age of their audiences

Entering the replies on Fortnite pros/streamers social media posts is almost never for the faint of heart.

On Twitter, replies such as “like if you saw this live” or “Don’t know about that one, Chief” span as far as the eye can see.


Those replies are an expected part of being in a game with a fan base as diverse in age ranges as Fortnite is, but some pros are starting to get frustrated.

Luminosity Gaming’s SypherPK brought up some common responses on his Instagram that annoy him, and point to the young age of the commenter.


SypherPK’s frustration struck a chord with many Fortnite pros. DrLupo, Nickmercs and Dakatoz all responded to the post in different ways.

While these players don’t specifically call out their audience for being young, they don’t deny the sentiments of SypherPK’s original Tweet. 

Fortnite pros recognize that their audience often contains players from under ten years old to over thirty, and their content has to reflect that. 


When Ninja began to take off, he made sweeping changes to his style of content. He stopped swearing and age-inappropriate jokes to be accessible to a wide audience.

It’s worked for him, and his comment sections have faltered for it, but that’s a trade he would surely make again.

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)

  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory

Stark Industries will be swarmed by teams looking for the secret Lake House

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.
