SypherPK or Ninja? Sypher explains who is better at Fortnite

Two of the most popular Fortnite streamers and YouTubers, Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan, are well respected for their in-game skills as well as being genuine entertainers. But Hassan thinks he’s got the upper hand now when it comes to his Fortnite ability. 

Although Ninja is inarguably the biggest name in Fortnite generally, still holding the record for most Twitch subscribers, viewers and followers, even after almost a year since he left the platform, it doesn’t necessarily mean he’s the best.


Blevins himself would concede that many of the competitive professional players are likely far beyond his skills at this point, but in 2018, at the height of his Twitch popularity, many considered him the top dog.

SypherPK has become on of Fortnite’s biggest content creators, partly thanks to dedication to the game.

Tfue later came to take that crown, but in 2020, one streamer who has remained dedicated to Fortnite while others move on to games like Warzone or Valorant, is SypherPK.


Speaking to Nadeshot and CouRage on their 100 Thieves podcast, Sypher was asked to compare himself to Ninja, in terms of their respective ‘peaks’ in the battle royale game.

“At Ninja’s peak, compared to others, he reached a much higher level, if you put him on a list of the top players,” SypherPK started.

“But, at my peak, mechanically speaking, being able to edit, built, aiming wise, I reached a higher skill-caliber than Ninja. […] So, at my peak, I was a better Fortnite player, but at his peak, he was higher up than me.”


Topic starts at 50:00

But, Sypher did clarify that even as Ninja doesn’t play as much Fortnite these days, there are now countless players that are better than both of them. Sypher makes the claim that Ninja was in fact top 5 or top 10 at his peak.

CouRage then wanted his own ranking, this time vs TimTheTatman, and Sypher courteously picked CouRage as the better player. “You get real sweaty at one point – especially close to the World Cup,” he said of Dunlop’s skills.

Sypher himself might be getting dragged away from Fortnite, thanks to Ubisoft’s new battle royale Hyper Scape, which he said he’s been loving in its beta release.

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.
