Popular streamer and Fortnite Battle Royale superstar Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, and his duo partner Malachi ‘Reverse2k’ Greiner, were the victims of an unfortunate glitch as they played in the returning Friday Fortnite tournament.

Ninja and Reverse have been duo partners for a while now, regularly competing in the World Cup Qualifiers and performing strongly, but are yet to officially qualify for the July tournament. 


May 31 saw the return of Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem’s Friday Fortnite tournaments, as a host of prominent streamers took to challenging one another.

Ninja and Reverse were playing against SypherPK and HighDistortion in the Losers’ Semi-Finals when the glitch happened.


The duo had split up in an effort to maximize their kills, when Reverse was eliminated in Pleasant Park. Ninja came in to clean up the mess, and went to get his partner’s ‘Reboot Card’. However, the card had glitched and was stuck in the ground, where it could not be recovered.

“I don’t see your – dude you’re in the ground,” said Ninja. “I can’t, I can’t. You’re in the ground dude. You’re literally in the ground I can’t get you. I swear to God.”

Reboot Cards were added to the game on April 10, and allow players to respawn teammates who have been completely eliminated from games. The idea matches rival battle royale Apex Legends, which sees ‘banners’ dropped as teammates are eliminated, that can be taken to beacons to bring them back into the match.


The tournament itself was a resounding success, with KEEMSTAR tweeting that tournament’s return pulled in over 10 million unique viewers.

It was won by NRG Esport’s MrSavage and Benjyfishy, with Ninja and Reverse placing 3rd, but not before a controversial moment occurred.

Despite going on to win the game and progress to the Losers’ Final, Ninja and Reverse could undoubtedly have been cost by the glitch, which will need a quick fix, particularly with World Cup Qualifiers on-going.

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

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.
