Fortnite’s skies have been littered with dogfights and planes looking to pick off grounded players, so one streamer took matters into his own hands to combat the aerial trend.

Since the release of Season 7 on December 6, Fortnite has taken the battle to the sky with the release of the X-4 Stormwing, which has caused many players to find ways to stand up to their winged foes from the ground.


In a clip from TSM’s HighDistortion, he and his group were looting at Retail Row when he hears a plane above them, leading him to decide that the best thing to do is go hunting for pilots.

Epic GamesThe guaranteed shot percentage makes the Scoped AR a worthy adversary to mobile planes.

When he makes his way onto the roof, the sky is alive with planes far and near.


“There’s an airplane above us,” he said. “It looks like Battlefield right now.”

HighDistortion took out his Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle and started tracking a plane that seemed to be at the tail-end of a dogfight.

The rifle has 100% accuracy when scoped, so it wasn’t the worst theory to put into practice. Of the eight shots he took, seven landed, downing two players who were occupying the same plane.


Lining up the shot was no small feat, and hitting the players in mid-flight made the play even harder. But as he showed, people on foot have counterplays to make if the sky is too crowded for comfort.

The v7.00 update for Fortnite has unleashed all kinds of chaos on the battlegrounds and more types of these plays are bound to appear.

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)

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.
