A new player now holds the console world record for most eliminations in a Solo match in Fortnite.

Competitive player ‘Whebs,’ who represents Bolt Esports, has managed to get a whopping total of 29 eliminations in a Solo lobby.

The previous Solo record was held by Teco1976, who had managed to get 27 eliminations in a single match on September 23. 

Prior to that, the record has stood at 26 eliminations since January, when it was set by OVOPhantuums and and later matched by Teco in April.

Whebs posted a video of his magnificent, record-breaking performance on his YouTube channel on October 22, in which he dominates the entire lobby, stringing elimination after elimination.

While the overall total of 29 eliminations is remarkable, perhaps the most impressive aspect was the fact that Whebz did not get his first elimination until there were only 73 players left in the lobby.

This meant that he ended up eliminating 29 of 73 opponents from that point, which comes out to nearly 40%, a quite unbelievable figure.

Interestingly enough, this was the second console kill record broken in Fortnite in as many days. The Duos vs Squads record on console was broken on October 23, with the new record elimination total sitting at 40.

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.

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.
