Tfue explains major change Fortnite needs to make to Chests

Fortnite star Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has explained the one major change Epic Games need to make to chests in the battle royale title after an unfortunate elimination.

Tfue isn’t one to ever hold back on his opinion, and will often let Epic and his viewers know exactly what he thinks needs changing in the game to make it, in his eyes, the best it can be.


During his March 12 stream, Tfue explained what needs to be changed about loot chests in the game, saying that he’s been asking for changes for over two years now.

Tfue has clearly taken issue with some aspects of Fortnite Season 2.

After landing at The Shark, a new location that has been introduced in Chapter 2, Season 2, Tfue went to grab the chest sitting on the edge of the cliff – but struggled as he landed with his builds out, therefore unable to open the chest.


Another player landing next to him managed to get the chest open and the Pump Shotgun inside – while Tfue managed to retrieve everything else from the chest. Despite his best efforts to pickaxe his opponent, he was knocked out and sent back to the lobby before explaining what needs to change.

“I’ve said this a thousand times before,” he began. “If you loot a chest, the first person to open it should get what’s inside it. Nobody else can get sh*t. You’re the first one down, you get the chest, you get the guns. Why was that not in the game day one?”

Anybody who has played Fortnite can understand his frustration with the current chest looting system, and will likely have fallen victim to it at one point or another.


Whether this is something Epic are looking at – or will ever consider making changes to chests as they are now – is not clear. This would be a pretty major change that could alter the start of the game quite drastically, especially as players will no longer be able to try their luck and contest chests if they’re a couple of seconds behind.

However, they’ve been known to listen to their audience and take ideas on board, so it’s not an impossibility.

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.
