NICKMERCS slams fans who complain about Fortnite updates as “irrelevant”

Nick ‘Fortnite players who always complain.

Players have been moaning about Fortnite pretty much since the debut of the game, and it can get pretty annoying to see those complaints spammed on every official tweet from Epic Games.


NICKMERCS is fed up with all this flaming, and sounded off on those constant haters in a passionate rant during a live stream.

FaZe ClanNICKMERCS sounded off on the Fortnite haters.

“Really pay attention to who’s going on Twitter dropping paragraphs,” he explained. “‘Cause all I’m gonna say is, motherfuckers are going on Twitter dropping paragraphs – you are irrelevant.”


He went on to speculate that the reason these users are “dropping paragraphs” is because they aren’t good enough to win any money in a competitive setting.

“You’re competitively irrelevant, you’re not good enough to hang with the best keyboard and mouse players so you gotta find an excuse,” he said. “Everybody dropping paragraphs, they ain’t making no Fortnite money.”

If you follow Fortnite on Twitter, you’ve definitely seen these players Nick is talking about – although they certainly don’t count for the whole of Fortnite’s competitive community.


While the pros do have their fair share of issues, they usually don’t make inflammatory replies to a tweet the way to express them, but will instead think of a better way to word their concerns.

Epic GamesMechs appear to be on the way out.

Fortnite Season 10 has arguably been the most controversial since the game debuted two years ago, and that’s impressive, given that the game has seen planes, Ballers, and the Infinity Blade all come and go.

Season 11 is looking like it’ll be a breath of fresh air in more ways than one – but we won’t know for certain until it actually arrives.


Season 10 wraps up October 6, and the next one will presumably begin right after.

We’ll see if the new season is what it takes to stop the constant nagging and complaints surrounding Fortnite.

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.
