It’s official ⁠— Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan will be joining forces for the Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) Chapter 2: Season 2 Duos tournament after Ninja split from previous partner Malachi ‘Reverse2k’ Greiner.

Ninja and SypherPK will be partnering up in duos for the first time since 2018, with the Fortnite stars announcing they’re getting together for FNCS on March 16.

The two will be making their return to competitive Fortnite after a short hiatus since Chapter 2: Season 2 kicked off, with both players set on grinding back to the top.

Ninja has found a new duo in SypherPK for the upcoming FNCS season.

SypherPK put out a statement attached to a March 16, stating he’s determined to show how far he has come as a player, as well as together as a duo with Ninja.

“We’re reuniting again for duo FNCS,” he said. “We’re gonna try it out and see what goes down. We’re both much better players, and we’ve both played a lot more since then, and hopefully this time we can pull out a few things and come out with some good performances and results.”

Ninja and SypherPK have a little bit of competitive experience together, duoing in the Fall Skirmish Series back in September 2018. However, they failed to really make their mark, finishing in 44th.

Ninja and Reverse2k announced their split on March 11 just days after the latest FNCS announcement. The duo had reportedly lost their synergy, often arguing during scrims due to differing expectations, the pair confirmed.

The Mixer star also noted scrims had been plagued with performance issues, with players “getting shot through walls” and “teleporting” among other server problems, and that was killing his competitive drive in the game.

Marcus ‘Ranger’ Pereira, Sypher’s former duo partner, will be joining forces with Andre ‘Typical Gamer’ Rebelo. It comes after Ranger and Sypher played together in the World Cup qualifiers in 2019, as well as the Winter Royale in December.

While the two bring a lot of name value to the table, fans are waiting to see how they’ll stack up against proven players like Solos World Cup champion Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf and his duo ‘Stretch’.

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.
