Twitch streamer Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop is one of the most recognizable names in the Fortnite Battle Royale community, but he is very much not much a fan of the game in its current state.

Despite his great success as a Fortnite content creator, CouRage has revealed that he’s finding it difficult to enjoy playing and streaming the game at the moment.

This change of heart has been influenced by the recent changes that have been made in Fortnite, especially the currently ongoing Ice Storm event that has covered the map in snow, fog, and zombie-like Ice Legion monsters. 

“Man, I just want to play non-foggy Fortnite solos without loud Zombies pushing me,” he tweeted. “Really struggling to be my normal self when I’m just not having much fun.”

This has gotten to the point of him sometimes even choosing to play other games on stream until the Fortnite map returns to its pre-Ice Storm state. 

Calling the situation “just a real shame,” CouRage is clearly being affected by the quality of Fortnite’s current gameplay, and is unable to maintain his usually entertaining and humorous persona while streaming the game.

He’s not the only one put off by the presence of the zombie creatures on the map; many other prominent content creators and pro players have expressed their distaste, even going back to the Halloween-themed Fortnitemares event.

Despite all of the negative feedback, even from back then, Epic Games surprisingly decided to bring back the zombies, although the developers have made it clear that their job is not to appease the top of the Fortnite food chain.

The currently ongoing Ice Storm event in Fortnite has covered a lot of the map with snow and fog.

By most accounts, CouRage will likely not look back at a lot of Season 7 with fondness, as he has not been a fan of many of the additions and changes made this season.

He was very vocal in expressing his contentions with the Infinity Blade sword when it was first added, and he has frequently lobbied Epic to remove the X-4 Stormwing planes from the default core modes.

Now the Ice Storm has been added to that list of negatives, and it’s caused him to have had enough of Fortnite for now.

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.
