Ever since the now infamous version 8.20 Fortnite update, a lot of the longtime Fortnite players had a bone to pick with Epic Games.

This update removed health and materials upon kill in normal lobbies but also created a ranked playlist for players to get matched up against players with a similar skill set.

The addition of the ranked playlist was something players had long been asking for but it turns out it didn’t work quite as one would have hoped.

Queues for the playlist are very long for many players and have caused players to go into the normal playlist and basically stomp on bad players.

Ninja blasts the current state of Fortnite

Ninja is one of the most popular Fortnite streamers on Twitch and his words hold a lot of weight with many players. He recently held a poll that received hundreds of thousands of votes on Twitter asking fans if they wanted Epic Games to revert the last patch.

It’s no secret Ninja wasn’t a fan of this patch but during his stream on April 3 he finally let it all out.

“I can’t do it, I’m not gonna sit around in arena solos all day,” he said. “I’m not gonna wait five minutes to get into a freaking game just to play with the settings I want. I’m not gonna do it. So you win Epic.”

This has been a common complaint with the game since v8.20 so Ninja does have a fair point. He went on the share more about how he feels about Fortnite currently.

“These solos are just beyond stupid,” he said. “You just get a bunch of sweats in these normal solos now because they probably don’t want to wait for a frickin’ 100 hours to get into a match. So now we’re all playing these trash settings.”

After the rant, Ninja went on to play arguably a more rage inducing game in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

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.
