Popular Twitch streamer Karim ‘Airwaks’ Benghalia and popular DJ RL Grime took the top honors on June 16 at the second annual Fortnite Pro-Am Celebrity Tournament to wrap up an incredible 2019 Fortnite Summer Block Party.

Stars from the Twitchverse and world-renowned celebrities converged to Inglewood, California where the stage was set for an epic Pro-Am competition in the Forum.

The first official game of the event easily went to RL Grime and Airwaks, by getting an astonished 16 eliminations total, netting them a cool 26 points to start off the event on a strong foundation.

They owned the first game, having 10 more kills than the second place team consisting of artist Dillon Francis and former FaZe pro Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore who were only about to get six total kills and 11 points in that first game.

Tyler ‘Ninja Blevins couldn’t manage to get into the top 10 in the first go around, as it was a hotly contested game with tons of players quickly being eliminated which was undoubtedly in part due to first game jitters.

Fortnite/TwitchDefending Pro-Am champion Ninja was having a rough go of things this time around.

The second game, audiences got a great sneak peak into what awaits them at the Fortnite World Cup seeing as qualified pros Aydan ‘Aydan’ Conrad and ‘BuckeFPS’ were locked in a vicious 1v1 to close the game.

With the final moments resulting in a back-and-forth build battle, Ayden was eventually able to pull out the Victory Royale.

Typical Gamer and Jimmy O Wang came out on top of the third game that was by far the closest of the bunch up to that point. In a frantic 1v1v1 situation in the final seconds of the game, Typical Gamer put the team on his back to pickup the massive win. 

Despite the win, however, it was RL Grime and Airways who hung onto first place heading into the final game of the event, pulling in 23 eliminations and 40 points through three games.

The final game came down to the wire once again, with Mason ‘Symfuhny’ Lanier and Aydan locked in a heated 1v1 as the final circle was closing in. Even though Aydan had the high-ground, it was Symfuhny that secured the crucial Victory Royale. 

Aydan losing that final 1v1 ended up being the difference, as they fell short of the tournament victory by just four points as RL Grime and Ariwaks secured the victory.

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.

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)
