Streaming star Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has called upon Epic Games to remove the “dumbest” weapon from Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2, as well as vaulting Mythic items in competitive play.

Ever since Fortnite’s battle royale mode launched back in 2017, Epic Games have added some weapons and items that have either split the fanbase down the middle or united them in the hopes of a vaulting taking place.


Who can forget the Zapotron, the Quad Launcher, Drum Gun, or the highly controversial Infinity Blade? Though, as Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2 has gone on, players like Tfue would like to see a few other weapons and items join that long list and head to the vault in favor of another change to the loot pool.

There has been plenty of new content in Fortnite Season 2 but not everyone is a fan.

During his April 9 stream, the Fortnite standout had been playing some solo Arena matches to conclude his stream when, late into one of his final matches, his health was drained by a Grappler shot. The opposing player quickly finished Tfue off with a shot from Skye’s Assualt Rifle, leaving the Twitch star furious.


“The Grappler is so cringy bro, it’s literally the cringest gun in the entire existence – I don’t give a f**k what anybody says,” Tfue said. “That sh*t should not be in competitive or Arena, absolutely just the dumbest f**king thing of all time.”

Tenney wasn’t finished there, continuing to call for a change to the current loot pool – especially for when it comes to competitive play.

“They need to vault all the Mythic items in competitive, period. Or, just not have competitive playlists at all,” Tfue concluded before also noting that the Grappler is a weapon you just don’t want to come up against in the late game. 


Now, of course, any changes to Fortnite come solely from Epic Games, but the developers have shown that they will listen to community feedback in the past.

However, for any change to happen, there would have to be more than just Tfue making his voice heard.

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.
