KEEMSTAR Cancels This Week’s $20K Friday Fortnite Celebrity Tournament

Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem has cancelled this week’s running of the Friday Fortnite celebrity tournament.

The decision stems from Epic Games scheduling the first half of the $1 million ‘Summer Skirmish’ Duos tournament for Friday, July 20, the same day that the YouTuber’s popular competition was scheduled to be played.


KEEMSTAR held out for as long as he could before he ultimately decided to cancel, which he announced late on July 19.

This essentially puts an end to Keem’s brief standoff with Epic, as he had previously indicated that he would go through with his tournament despite the much larger event being played at the same time.


However, with so many of Friday Fortnite’s regular participants also receiving invites to play in Friday’s $500K Summer Skirmish, the YouTuber realized he could not fill up his bracket, which offers a much more modest $20K prize pool due to being capped by Epic’s third-party regulations.

This marks the first time in eleven weeks that Friday Fortnite will not be played, with its previous ten tournaments having garnered unprecedented popularity and viewership success.

The competition will be back on the 29th and every Sunday afterwards, in order to ensure that big-name content creators can participate in both competitions.

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)
  • Eliminations at Craggy Cliffs (3)
  • Enter the Vault in Doom’s Domain
  • Destroy Cobwebs at The Authority (3)
  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory
  • Drive a car from Sweaty Sands to Misty Meadows in less than 4 minutes without getting out
  • Deal damage after knocking an opponent back with Storm’s Whirlwind Blast (1,000)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Coral Castle (500)

Stark Industries will be swarmed by teams looking for the secret Lake House

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.
