Superstar streamer Tyler ‘Ninja‘ Blevins has revealed the winners of his Fortnite Battle Royale trickshotting contest, all of whom will now be attending the Creative World Cup in July. 

Announced on May 16, Ninja’s Creative Trials required players to try and hit the most impressive trickshots they could muster on a custom built map in Creative mode.

All of the submissions were judged based on various types of criteria, including number of targets hit, distances of targets hit, and overall creativity of the trickshot. 

On May 28, after all the entry clips were looked at and assessed, Ninja finally revealed the the three winners to be: TalDak, FaZe Clan’s Kaz, and TacoWithAWeirdT.

All three winners will now receive a stamped ticket to New York City, where they will participate in the finals of the Fortnite World Cup Creative event.

Ninja - TwitterNinja first opened his Creative Trials on May 16, and now the three winners have finally been announced.

The first winner, Taldak, nailed what he decided to call a “six piece IRL backflip Hoverboard Rift trickshot,” which was truly nothing short of spectacular.

Using a combination of the Driftboard, Rift-To-Go, and a Grappler, he nailed an insane sequence of shots and moves that saw him eliminate six targets before touching the ground, including a relatively long snipe.

The next winner, TacoWithAWeirdT, pulled off an equally impressive sequence of moves and shots, albeit without using a vehicle in the process.

Taco’s trickshot routine was based around his entire inventory, which was comprised of a Hunting Rifle, two Flintlock pistols, a Boom Bow, and a Grappler.

What put the icing on the cake was the nicely timed emote right at the end of the clip, as the player hit the ground after hitting the final shot.

Perhaps the least surprising winner of the three was FaZe Clan’s Kaz, who kicked off his routine by launching himself from a Pirate Cannon onto a Driftboard that sat waiting high above. 

Using extremely high sensitivity, Kaz was able to nail down some very impressive moves around the course, hitting some expert shots with his Boom Bow.

While the entire clip was spellbinding, the best moment may have been when he swapped his Boom Bow for a floating Hunting Rifle while in midair, followed up with a double headshot using the rifle and a Hand Cannon. 

You can watch Ninja’s full video below to see his reactions to the winning submissions, in addition to him judging numerous other clips that were sent to him.

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.

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.
