Reddit shows YouTuber HappyPower breaking Fortnite EULA and gets him removed from Support-A-Creator

Epic’s new Support-a-Creator program has caused a fair amount of drama in a short period, the latest of which is a YouTuber who was removed from the program after a post on Reddit shot to the top of /r/FortniteBR.

HappyPower is a YouTuber with over 450,000 subscribers and, until this morning, was a part of Epic’s program that allows Fortnite players to share the wealth with some of their favorite content creators when they spend V-bucks in game.


He was removed from the program after a post on Reddit’s /r/FortniteBR by /u/AIexTheGOD showed a tweet where HappyPower explained how to avoid bans after modding the game.

Sad this is someone who Fortnite added into Support-A-Creator from r/FortNiteBR

Any mods to the game go against Epic’s End User License Agreement (EULA), even just changes to cosmetic skins like the Rainbow Skull Trooper featured in Happy’s tweet.


The YouTuber went back to Twitter to call the person who posted the original tweet on Reddit a “little shit.” That tweet has since been deleted but the screenshot of it was posted on Reddit.

Happy Power seems upset :rage: He feels. He was wrongly taken out from r/FortNiteBR

Not deleted is another series of tweets from HappyPower where he says “The color change of Skin didn’t break TOS,” but that is incorrect.

From the Fortnite End User License Agreement:” [You may not] (e) reverse engineer, derive source code from, modify, adapt, translate, decompile, or disassemble it or make derivative works based on it; (f) remove, disable, circumvent, or modify any proprietary notice or label or security technology included in it; (g) create, develop, distribute, or use any unauthorized software programs to gain advantage in any online or other game modes.”


What HappyPower was promoting would fall under ‘modify’ and is certainly a violation of the EULA.

While Rainbow Skull Trooper does not provide a competitive advantage because only the modder can see the color change, creating an advantage is not a requirement when determining if an act violated the EULA.

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
  • Deal damage after knocking an opponent back with Storm’s Whirlwind Blast (1,000)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Coral Castle (500)

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.
