Fortnite is coming back to TwitchCon with another tournament and it’s featuring a whopping $1.3 million prize pool. Here’s how you can tune in.

The first time Fortnite came to TwitchCon it was for the culmination of the Fall Skirmish back in 2018. Now, Fortnite returns to the Twitch Rivals arena with a much wider pool of entrants.

Unlike most Twitch Rivals events, this event is open to all partners and affiliates, rather than an invited list of high caliber streamers. This means that most people attending TwitchCon will be able to participate, so long as they meet Twitch’s requirements to be an affiliate. 

Epic GamesA massive TwitchCon tournament is right around the corner.

The tournament will take place on September 27 and you’ll be able to watch along with the official Twitch Rivals broadcast.

It remains to be seen if the streamers will be able to stream from their own channels. Since the event is being held in person at TwitchCon, the best we’ll probably get is the streamers hosting the broadcast from their channel.

It’ll be an all-day event so if you plan on watching it all, you’ll need to put aside pretty much the whole day as the action begins at 11 AM PST / 2 PM EST / 7 PM BST on September 27 and the Grand Finals kick off six hours after that.

Here’s a look at the full format as explained by Twitch Rivals.

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.
