It looks as though Fortnite star Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has found a way to continue competing in Fortnite’s Trios tournament series without Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore as their professional relationship continues to spiral.

It’s no secret that Tfue and his trio partners Cloak and Thomas ‘72hrs’ Mulligan haven’t been on the best of terms in recent days. News first broke about the rift on September 7, when he tweeted he was looking for a new trio to “take competitive seriously.”

When word got out that the former FaZe Clan star was trying out a new trio, many pointed out that switching teams could result in him forfeiting his qualification for the trio playoffs to be held later in September. 

Twitter: @TTFUE/@CLOAKZYTfue and Cloak’s war of words has been highly publicized across social media.

According to competition rules, teams that qualify for the next round will lose their spot if one of the players ends up leaving, which would obviously be equally detrimental for all three stars.

However, now it looks as though he may have discovered a legal way to play in the next round of the competition without any of them having to forfeit their spot, thanks to a section hidden deep down in the official rules. 

4.2.7    Without limiting Section 4.2.2, teams that qualify for the Season Finals may perform a one-time trade of one of their players with another single player from a different team that has also qualified for the Season Finals within the same region.  This trade must occur before the trade deadline prior to the start of the Group Stage on September 17, 2019 at 11:00 PM EST.  All six (6) involved players must unanimously agree and request the trade by contacting an Event Administrator, reachable via email at [email protected] 

There are some distinctions that could play a role in the former FaZe player’s next steps. Mainly, all six players between the two teams have to unanimously agree on the swap, meaning Cloak and 72hrs are going to have to be onboard with any changes to the rosters, including taking on the unwanted player from the other team.

The other factor is a time limit placed on the trade. Section 4.2.7 reads that the transfer policy is only available before the start of the group stages on Tuesday, September 17, which means Tenney is going to need to get a hustle on if he wants to pull the trigger on the trade.

Cloak, TwitterTfue and Cloak have been one of the most popular duos in Fortnite.

Whether or not the Fortnite icon does make the call on his future away from the pair, the fact that he’s investigating legal ways to get out of their grouping for finals seems to point towards the long-standing trio not taking to the stage together any time soon.

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.

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.
