FaZe Clan’s Turner ‘Tfue‘ Tenney will be hosting a number of upcoming Fortnite scrims and if you think you’re good enough to compete, here’s everything you need to know in order to get involved. 

‘Tfault’ scrim matches will be organized on “various occasions” using Discord, which you easily join using the instructions below, allowing players to face off against other players in Solo, Duos and Squad modes.

However, before even worrying about that, let’s take a look at some of the things that you’re going to need to do in order to play.

Join the Discord!

First of all, you need to join Tfue’s Discord by heading over to his official Twitch channel… It’s called ‘Peencord’. This will allow you to be involved in community discussions, see when scrims are set to take place and confirm your involvement. 

At the moment, Tfault scrims are only for PC players based in North America. If you’re from another part of the world, you would have to change your location and this can only be done by subscribing to Tfue’s channel, getting an invitation from him or one of his mods. 

Epic GamesFortnite skins will not be allowed in the tournament, as everybody must be a default character.

Rules

An explicit set of rules are in place for these scrims and abiding by them is going to be very important if you would like to join this community of gamers. 

These scrims allow competitive players to be matched against each other and practice across a number of different game modes. This is not only for pros, though, as any regular Fortnite player can join the sessions if they follow the rules below: 

  • All players must wear default Fortnite skins. 
  • Do not push the storm and take “stupid” fights. 
  • If you have TTV, YT, Twitch or YouTube in your in-game name, you must have Streamer Mode enabled. 
  • Stream sniping is forbidden. 
  • Teammates must be a Tfue subscriber for either Tfue or Cloakzy, and be in the Discord chat. 
  • If a teammate is banned for breaking the rules, another teammate must be found. 

So, do you think you’re up to the task?

How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 10 challenges

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 10 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
