UPDATE (9pm EST – November 23, 2018)

Ninja has concluded his charity stream after nine hours having surpassing his goal of $50,000. The entire proceeds will go to The Ellen Fund. 

After making an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show back in October, Fortnite streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins is once again joining forces with the popular TV host.


As the face of Fortnite, Ninja continues to cross over cultural barriers with appearances on talk shows and other news programs.

Those crossovers have now led to a special collaboration with Ellen DeGeneres for the Thanksgiving holiday.


Ellen posted the news to her Twitter, informing everyone that Ninja would be holding a special charity stream on November 23.

The stream will benefit The Ellen Fund, which is a charity that focuses on global conversation efforts for critically endangered species.

In the video, Ninja informs Ellen that Twitch streamers will frequently do streams to raise money for various charities and that he’d be doing a special one for The Ellen Fund.


“I know that you have this thing called The Ellen Fund and I’m actually going to be doing a stream for The Ellen Fund on Friday the 23rd of this month,” Ninja tells a surprised Ellen.

The streamer said that he’d likely be able to raise a minimum of $50,000, to which Ellen said that she and the gorillas the Fund seeks to protect were incredibly thankful.

The Ellen DeGeneres Show/YouTubeNinja first appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in early October.

Ninja is no stranger to charity streams, having managed to raise over $300,000 during his block during the GuardianCon charity stream back in July. 


Given Ninja’s massive audience, it’s likely that will easily blow through his initial goal of $50,000 pretty quickly.

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 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.
