Ghost Gaming’s professional player Timothy ‘Bizzle’ Miller has made a mockery the Fortnite World Cup format and current meta by progressing past the semi-finals without using a single gun.

Bizzle, who is currently the highest earner in Fortnite history, has already booked his ticket to the grand final in New York back in the first week of qualifiers.

As a result, he guaranteed himself at least $50,000 in prize money and has taken the rest of the qualifying weeks to make a mockery of the World Cup format he describes as “shit”.

EPIC GAMESBizzle is among many pro players who are unhappy with the state of competitive Fortnite.

During the recent World Cup Online Open semi-final, the American attempted to qualify without using a gun, stacking tons of mobility items and throwables instead, spending the majority of the game safely protected by the Baller vehicle.

Remarkably, he managed to win two games in a row on his way to racking up 52 points, more than some other players notably Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, to book his place in the weekend’s finals.

Bizzle’s tactic arguably handed him an advantage over other players in certain situations as mobility items are considered one of the most important items in competitive Fortnite – rift-to-go, shadow bombs and impulse grenades can often be the difference between life or death.

Nevertheless, his performance demonstrated his excellent game sense and highlighted why he will be one of the favorites to come out on top in the solo tournament.

When is the Fortnite World Cup grand final?

The Ghost Gaming star is yet to qualify for the duo tournament alongside his teammate Dylan ‘Dmo’ Moore and has just one more week to book his place.

However, Bizzle will be competing in the grand final alongside star names such as Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and Team Liquid’s Noah ‘Vivid’ Wright from July 25-28 in New York.

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.
