While Fortnite fans have indulged in the madness that the battle royale has produced since its launch, the game has seen a string of controversial additions – which are starting to take a toll on its pro players.

Epic Games like to keep their game fresh by adding new and inventive weapons or items that mix up the formula to varying degrees. However, many of these changes can sometimes prove to be too drastic, which throws off the balance of power in the game.

Pro players have taken to Twitter to express their continual frustration with the state of the game, as Season 7 seems to be plagued with more and more ill-fated decisions.

CLG Wish / TwitterFrustrations in the pro community has been piling up since the start of Season 7.

Fortnite has added many controversial elements since the start of its new season on December 6, such as the X-4 Stormwing plane, Boomboxes that ravaged anything in their midst, a now-vaulted Infinity Blade that was too overpowered (yet still made an appearance in the Winter Royale), and much more.

Counter Logic Gaming’s Sam ‘WishYouLuckk’ Salcedo and many others berated the game’s current form and its notable deteriorating competitive feel.

“Never had less fun in Fortnite in my life thank in Season 7,” WishYouLuckk said in a deleted tweet. “Every single patch the game gets worse. lmao. Epic followin the Gears of War and Paragon trail to the tee.”

FaZe Clan’s Dennis ‘Cloakzy’ Lepore echoed similar sentiments toward the recent changes in the game, claiming that Fortnite gets “worse and worse [with] every patch.”

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.
