KEEMSTAR Will Bring Back Friday Fortnite But On One Condition

YouTuber and host of DramaAlert Daniel “KEEMSTAR” Keem, has announced that the ‘Friday Fortnite’ tournament could come back – but the community will need to show their support for it first.

Friday Fortnite was a weekly tournament hosted by KEEMSTAR and UMG Gaming, which attracted millions of viewers every Friday with top Fortnite streamers and YouTubers taking part.

But it was stopped short due to clashes with Epic Games’ own ‘Summer Skirmish’ series, which just finished it’s final week at PAX West.

With Summer Skirmish out of the way, fans have been asking KEEMSTAR to bring Friday Fortnite, and he seems open to the idea.

But, in typical KEEMSTAR fashion, he wants to ensure that the demand for the tournament is real, and so has set a retweet target for the community to hit.

So, if you are in favor of Friday Fortnite returning, make sure you head over to the Tweet below and hit retweet!


At the time of writing, the Tweet has just surpassed the half way mark, with over 50,000 retweets. With a week to go, KEEMSTAR is well on track to hitting the goal of 100,000.

Despite the huge viewing numbers that the Summer Skirmish attracted, Friday Fortnite was equally if not more popular, even with a lower prize pool and no developer support.

This largely is down to two reasons – firstly that only popular streamers were allowed to play, and secondly, the format. The duos tournament is focused entirely on eliminations, not victory royales, meaning competitors are always playing aggressively.


Where to visit houses in Slurpy Swamp for Fortnite Week 7 challenge

To complete Fortnite Season 5’s Week 7 challenges, you’ll need to visit houses at Slurpy Swamp in one single match. Here’s where to find them with a handy locations map.

Another week of Fortnite action means another set of weekly challenges for players to complete. Following the recent v15.20 update, players will no doubt be looking for more ways to collect XP and level up their Battle Pass.

As well as quests to destroy Slurp Barrels and collect books at Holly Hedges & Sweaty Sands, Week 7 features a location-based challenge that requires players to ‘Visit Houses in Slurpy Swamp in One Match’.

This challenge might sound pretty self-explanatory at first glance, but if you don’t know where you’re looking, it can actually be quite confusing. Fortunately, we’ve got a handy guide and map for you below.

There are several houses to find just south of Slurpy Swamp.

The most important thing to point out here is that there aren’t actually any houses in the main section of the Slurpy Swamp point of interest. This is probably why players have been getting confused about how to complete the challenge.

You’ll need to visit three houses in total to complete this challenge, and you need to visit all of them in one single match. To do this, you’ll have to venture west of the main factory area and enter the swamp itself.

We’ve found six houses that you can visit here, and marked them on the map below. Some of them look rather derelect, so it’s easy to mistake them for being unimportant structures.

Simply step inside three of the houses and you’ll tick off the challenge, earning yourself 20,000 XP in the process.

You’ll want to land nearby and complete this challenge rather quickly, as it’s right at the edge of the map. If the circle ends up shrinking towards the opposite side of The Island, you’ll have to race to avoid getting eliminated by the Storm.

Fun fact: This swamp is full of Slurp juice that’s leaked out of the nearby factory, which means you’ll slowly heal the longer you stand in it. This could be a good location to complete this week’s ‘Gain Max Shields in a Single Match’ challenge.
