Ninja explains why he doesn’t play Fortnite competitively in Season 2

Streaming superstar Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has explained why he’s been veering away from competitive games in Fortnite season 2, blaming a few problems that still exist within the battle royale. 

Despite having a pretty vast pool of professional players, the competitive scene in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2 has really kicked off like previous seasons. 


Professionals like Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf can still be seen practicing and getting ready for action, but that can’t be said for everyone. Despite praising the new season and its content, Ninja still has a few issues with the game itself – noting that these bugs can be pretty detrimental to competitive matches.

New content was added in Fortnite Season 2 but players haven’t quite been able to compete yet.

During his March 8 stream, Blevins had to play some duo games with fellow streamer SypherPK when the pair were taken down inside The Agency and blamed an issue with trying to build. 


“They’re the worst. That’s why I’m not playing in the scrims anymore, my whole chat is like ‘the scrims are so beneficial’ but they’re really not,” the streaming star said after complaining about the current state in which Fortnite performs. 

“I get like maybe fighting towns and players off spawn when there’s not that much lag, yeah, that’s fine – like rotating, alright, I get it. But after the rotation, after that man, you’re getting shot through walls, builds aren’t placing, players are teleporting,” he added, noting that players had been “skipping and sliding” through the last scrim he played in and how it wasn’t really too fun to play.

The former Halo professional also claimed that pros had been “stressing” to compete in the new season but he wasn’t sure why, seeing as Epic hasn’t made a move to launch competitive play like they did with the FNCS and Fortnite World Cup.


Whether or not those events will come further down the line, however, remains to be seen as there haven’t been any hints just yet.

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

  • 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.
