Team Liquid’s Jake ‘Poach’ Brumleve has commented the organization’s recent decision to add Noah ‘Vivid’ Wright to the starting roster of their pro Fortnite team, saying it was a move that he pushed for.

Speaking to viewers of his Twitch stream, the Fortnite Battle Royale star made it clear that the move wasn’t a random one and that he actually initiated it.


“I was the one that pushed for it. I was the one that said I want him on the team, you know?

“I knew he’s a nuts player, and then I played with him in the [Fortnite Summer] Skirmish and we won… Like, yes I’m glad with the pickup. I’m the one that initiated it.”

Vivid replaced Adam ‘Strafesh0t’ Crawford on the starting roster – a decision that was lamented by Strafesh0t fans, but Poach seems certain that the decision was the best one for the team moving forward.

Vivid had been heavily linked with a move to TSM prior to joining Team Liquid, but he has since stated that a natural chemistry with the Team Liquid players was the main factor in helping him make a decision.


As Poach mentioned in the clip above, he and Vivid have already found success as a duo in the past – earning themselves $75,000 by winning Week 5 of the Fortnite Summer Skirmish series.

Vivid also won the Week 4 solo tournament (a competition that saw Poach finish in second place) so it is easy to see why he was so heavily sought after by the likes of Team Liquid and TSM.

Strafsh0t’s future is currently uncertain, by Team Liquid’s co-owner Steve Arhancet has made it clear that he has options within the organization and is also free to pursue other opportunities.

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
  • Destroy Cobwebs at The Authority (3)
  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory
  • Drive a car from Sweaty Sands to Misty Meadows in less than 4 minutes without getting out

Stark Industries will be swarmed by teams looking for the secret Lake House

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.
