Popular Twitch streamer and Fortnite player Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins’ stint in Europe has seen a plethora of notable moments – but one instance stirred a bit more controversy than the rest.

Ninja was in the midst of his ‘Night Shift’ Fortnite event in Poland when he became the unfortunate victim of stream snipers, who managed to hit him from over 209 meters away.


While Ninja put up a good fight, he ultimately lost a tense skirmish with the snipers – which led to some jokingly heated comments from the streamer.

“That’s okay, man,” Ninja said of his death. “It’s alright, dude. Now I get to commentate the entire game, dude. It’s just what I wanted to do from the beginning, anyway. It doesn’t matter.”


The sniper who took Ninja out, ‘Huuuber,’ broke out into an emote as a humorous taunt, to which Ninja made an even spicier comment.

“Just gotta – some wonderful, wonderful sportsmanship from these guys,” Ninja continued sarcastically. “…you took me out this early, got the Marshmello skin on, lookin’ fresh.”

Comments in a YouTube video of the altercation showed widespread sympathy for Ninja, with some users calling the snipers “toxic” due to sniping the streamer at his own tournament.


Some commenters weren’t too sure that Ninja was joking, after being taken out by stream snipers during his Night Shift event in Poland.

“They were probably some toxic kids who wanted to say that they could kill Ninja at school,” one wrote.

“You can tell Ninja is pissed, but he’s not showing it,” said another.

While Ninja suffered an unfortunate loss, his trip to Europe saw some lighthearted and hilarious moments – including his NSFW flub of the French language with popular streamer Gotaga during their joint stream.

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)

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.
