It’s no secret that where players choose to land in Fortnite can have a significant impact on their in-game success – but popular Twitch streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins hates one location more than the rest.

Ninja explained his hatred for Fortnite’s Pleasant Park during a livestream in early March, after allegedly landing there for the first time since Season 6.


As the streamer began to build, he came across another player and attempted to dispatch them – but he ended up being quickly eliminated, instead.

“I hate Pleasant Park more than anything!” Ninja frustratedly said of the locale. “It is the worst place on God’s freaking green earth to land, dude. It is nothing but a complete and utter cluster-f, man.”

He went on to explain that Pleasant Park’s close cluster of homes make defensive play nearly impossible, as enemies have ample angles from which to aim at other players.

Epic GamesNinja isn’t a big fan of Fortnite’s Pleasant Park location, thanks to its cluster of unbuildable houses.

“You get shot from every house in every direction because its a freaking cube of houses that everyone has an angle on,” Ninja continued. “You just get shot from everywhere dude.”


That’s not the only reason Ninja isn’t fond of the Park; players can’t build off the sides of houses in the area, leading to a significant strategic disadvantage for some users.

Red Bull EsportsNinja joked that Fortnite had taken ideas from battle royale Apex Legends – and even Sea of Thieves.

“Dude, I hate that place, man,” he argued. “I hate it so much. All the houses you can’t build walls on because of those effing roofs!”

While Ninja has hated Pleasant Park since Season 6, the streamer likewise poked fun at Fortnite’s Season 8 update, comparing it to popular battle royale game Apex Legends and even action-adventure title Sea of Thieves.

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)

  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory

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.
