Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has finally returned to hosting his Ninja Battles tournaments after a two-month hiatus and all-new winners took home the first-place prize. Here’s a full recap of how the latest event unfolded.

Ninja launched his own series of Fortnite competitions back in May with a whopping $80,000 up for grabs week in and week out. While the first two weeks went off without a hitch as North America’s best trios did battle, the event soon came to a halt. 


With the surprise collapse of Mixer, the streaming superstar was left without a platform to call home. What followed was weeks of silence, with Ninja admittedly considering retirement from streaming altogether. However, he finally made his return on August 5 with a random Twitch stream.

While he’s not yet willing to lock down with any platform in particular, this stream marked his return to the spotlight. Allowing his Fortnite tournaments to come back in full force as well. The third week of Ninja Battles competition rolled around on August 13 and we’ve got you covered with a full recap.

The latest iteration of the one-day tournament brought together 18 of the top Fortnite trios across NA. From FaZe Clan players such as Nate Hill, to World Cup champion Bugha, and NRG’s Benjyfishy, the event was stacked with popular names and veteran competitors alike.

Each trio was to compete in a total of five matches during the tournament. Teams would then be scored based on their final placement in each match, along with their collective eliminations. Here’s how the action played out.

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.
