Fortnite’s Winter Royale is underway, and the point system that rewards players for kills completely changes how the game is played.

In tournaments and events, a new dimension to Fortnite is introduced that give rewards both inside and out of the game which demand new strategies and methods of playing.


YouTuber ‘BallaTW’ went in-depth with this new, more aggressive Fortnite meta and gave viewers some helpful strategies on how to play Fortnite in a mode where securing kills reigns supreme.

One tactic he highlights is a hyper-aggressive approach to Fortnite that puts you in “high loot, low material” drop spot located in a high altitude, such as Viking Village.


After looting, he suggest immediately looking to engage in a fight. The loot and materials gained from the firefight even out the dry-start in this strategy, but also gives you an early start in terms of tournament points after securing the kills.

BallaTW also talks about “gatekeeping,” which is when a player bunkers down and oversees a side of the map to incite fights, get a pick or force players to use their mats.

Epic GamesNew competition demands new tactics, and it’s been on full display in competitions like the Winter Royale.

In endgame scenarios where the fights are congested, it’s important to stay patient. He runs through scenarios where pro players intentionally box themselves in hectic firefights waiting for their opponent to make a move.


Small advantages will present themselves if players keep their weapons loaded, prioritize gathering info on where other players are, and always peek with the right side of the third-person screen.

In this respect, playing at high altitudes near the storm will minimize the the mats needed to stay safe, while giving room for more mobility away from lower levels that should be filled with players.

Making plays in kill incentive game modes will get players much needed points, but adapting competitive-based strats into crucial points in the early- and late-game will let players climb higher in the ladder.

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.
