Fortnite Season 4 is drawing towards its end, but the XP Xstravaganza is alive and well, and that means players can take advantage of another set of challenges to boost their experience.

Fortnite Season 4 has been an absolute blast. It’s introduced all kinds of new content, and there’s still some extra surprises on the cards. However, it’s entered into its 12th week now, which means Season 5 isn’t too far away.

It’s out with the old and in with the new, which is bittersweet for those who haven’t unlocked everything in the Season 4 Battle Pass. That’s right, folks. Those precious unlocks are drawing closer to their extinction.

Fortunately, there couldn’t be a better time to boost your experience.

Epic Games has been generous in providing many ways for players to rack up whatever experience they need. However, none are better than the Fortnite Season 4 Week 12 XP Xtravaganza Challenges.

Fortnite Season 4 has been one of the best ones yet.

The Fortnite XP Xtravaganza Week 12 Challenges are the perfect opportunity for players to make up for lost time. They’re fun and creative, and while most are straightforward, some can be a little challenging. Here’s a complete list of them all:

Fortnite Season 4 Week 12 XP Xtravaganza Challenges

  • Deal damage with Shotguns to opponents (1,000/2,500/5,000)
  • Eliminate opponents with Common/Rare/Epic weapons (7 each)
  • Damage opponents using the Choppa’s blades (50/150/250)
  • Catch fish (10)
  • Catch fish with a Pro Fishing Rod (10)
  • Catch fish with Explosive Weapons (10)
  • Shoot a gas can be thrown by a teammate before it hits the ground (1)
  • Consume foraged items (30)

Keep in mind that some of the challenges need to be completed in stages. For example, the first one requires you to deal 1,000 damage to opponents with Shotguns. Then, you’ll need to hit 2,500 and 5,000 to finish it entirely.

Similarly, the third challenge requires you to deal 50 damage to opponents with Choppa’s blades. Then, 150 and 250 to wrap it up. This one also happens to be the hardest challenge, since you’ll need to become a master pilot to get it done.

Players will need to try and clip players with the chopper blades, making them vulnerable.

You’ll need to catch fish to complete three of the challenges, including 10 with any fishing rod, 10 with a Pro Fishing Rod, and 10 with Explosive weapons.

However, catching fish is easier said than done. Of course, it’s not that hard to catch the fish. But it is hard to find the time to do it in the heat of battle. After all, you will be a sitting duck in the process.

The fishing challenges might be harder to finish than they seem.

And with that, all that’s left to do is to get started with the challenges. If you finish them all, you’ll get a nice experience boost right in time before the seasons ends.

The best part is, there’s a challenge for everyone. If you can’t be bothered fishing, you can frag enemies with a shotgun or try and swoop down on unsuspecting enemies with a chopper. The choice is yours.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
