Reddit has been the birthplace of many ideas, suggestions, memes, and many other things related to Fortnite: Battle Royale.

One of the recent trends on the Fortnite page is the ‘Reddit Snipe,’ which is a sniping technique made popular by Reddit users. 


The Reddit Snipe involves aiming a sniper rifle through the outline of an incomplete structure and then shooting once the structure is no longer obstructing the path of the bullet.

In Fortnite, structures that are in the process of being built have a blue, transparent outline that forms, giving the player a few moments to aim through it before the structure is complete.

There are two variations of the ‘Reddit Snipe,’ one which can be done solo and one that requires a teammate.

For the first version, the player needs to build a structure and aim their rifle through the outline and wait for the opponent to shoot the structure down.

Once that happens, the player then needs to immediately shoot, and as long as the enemy is standing where he was while shooting down the build, the shot should connect.

The second variation has the same basic mechanics, but does require a teammate to execute.

For this method, a player needs to build some sort of structure and aim through its outline. 


However, instead of waiting for an enemy player to shoot it down, a teammate can edit the structure so that it does not obstruct the path of the bullet, at which point the shooter can immediately take the shot and eliminate an unsuspecting opponent.

Reddit user ‘Matthew2818’ posted a video of him and his teammates pulling this off.

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.
