The beauty of Fortnite: Battle Royale, and a major reason why it has become such a gaming phenomenon, is the fact that it offers players a wide range of opportunities to produce incredible moments.

The game’s unique mechanics and style give players the chance to demonstrate their mastery in various ways and in difficult situations.


One such player is OpTic Gaming content creator Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop, who can be found playing and streaming Fortnite on Twitch on a daily basis.

CouRage, who often jokingly boasts of his top tier Fortnite abilities, in fact produced a moment of magic when he survived an insane 1v3 situation in-game. 


Trapped in the basement of one of the houses, CouRage had only two golden pistols to work with against the three enemy players that were surrounding him.

After hitting some impressive shots to knock down the first two, he improvised against the third by using a Boogie Bomb to incapacitate him and then hitting two, well-aimed shots with his Hand Cannon.

After finally eliminated all three players, CouRage let out a loud roar of jubilation that can only be inspired by single-handedly defeating a team in Fortnite.


The sequence altogether was quite remarkable, considering that he had only pistols to work with, was trapped in a tight space, had three players all trying to eliminate him, and he even had the audacity to use a Boogie Bomb.

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.
