Fortnite streamer Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan has outlined every major change he thinks Epic Games needs to make to the game in Season 3, as many Fortnite fans complain that the game is growing stale. 

With a growing number of Fortnite pros and content creators stepping away from Epic Games’ building battle royale, the pressure is mounting to implement a number of meaningful changes in the upcoming Season 3.


Despite not yet leaving the game behind, Sypher has not been afraid to criticize the title for things he thinks could be improved. He has previously focused on SBMM and the issues it creates, and on April 18, he revealed an exhaustive list of things he wants to see altered.

Some people argue Chapter 2 signifies the end for Fortnite.

“First topic is gonna be performance,” he said. “We know that performance has been kinda weird lately. Increases in ping, FPS problems, lag, and people phasing through builds. My hope is that Fortnite has a lot of plans to improve performance.”


He also called for a re-work to Arena mode, to incentivize players to grind Arena when there are not  FNCS tournaments ongoing. This, Sypher argues, would make public matches far “less sweaty”.

“The big thing, for me right now,” he continued, “is the pacing of the game.” He called on Epic to alter the game’s current build to allow people to stay alive for longer. Other creators, namely Ninja, have also highlighted the number of early-game deaths as an issue, arguing it leads to stale mid-game scenarios as players struggle to find enemies.

Hassan argued that “more mobility” would aid these efforts, referring to numerous vehicles (e.g. Quadcrashers and Hoverboards) that Epic have in the vault that they could reintroduce. He also claimed that rifts or slip-streams would be useful to increase rotation mobility.


Similarly, Sypher wants to see more healing consumables. Like vehicles, there are an abundance of healing items in the vault that Epic have removed. The 23-year-old name checked Slurp Juices, Chug-Splashes and Chug-Jugs as items that could return.

A full list of changes Sypher called for is detailed below:

  • Improve performance – lag, FPS stability, and reductions in ping
  • Re-work to Arena Mode
  • Increase mobility – vehicles, rifts and slip-streams
  • More healing items
  • Reintroduce traps with reduced damage (125 0r 100)
  • Bring back the Infantry Rifle
  • Remove C4 from competitive matches
  • Bring back old POIs (e.g. Tilted Towers)
  • Reintroduce “fun” consumables (Impulse/Shockwave Grenades & Boogie Bombs)

“The thing about Fortnite that makes it so great,” he finished, “is that they don’t even have to bring in new stuff – there are so many things that used to exist in the game that they could bring back that would make the game fun again… Other games don’t really have that advantage.”


While a number of Sypher’s proposed changes relate to bringing back staples of older Fortnite, it would still be a pretty significant overhaul of the current game to see all of his changes implemented. Over to you, Epic.

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.
