FaZe Clan star Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has won his first Fortnite Battle Royale Champion Series after breaking up with duo Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore with a whole new squad.

Tfue and Cloak were thought to be the inseparable duo. The two had been competing under the FaZe banner for over a year, dominating the competition online and at events like TwitchCon 2018.

However, after a very public breakup involving Cloak, Thomas ‘72hrs’ Mulligan, and $140,000 of missed partnership deals, Tfue split from his long-time partner to start anew.

It didn’t take long for the Twitch superstar to find success with his new trio though, as he, Alex ‘Fiber’ Bonetello, and ‘Khanada’ took down the rest of the competition in the Fortnite Champion Series Trios event in week five.

Twitter: CloakzyTfue and Cloak had a very public breakup after being inseparable for so long.

The trio started off the weekend shaky after missing the first half hour of September 14’s block, meaning they were only able to play eight of their nine games. That didn’t stop them from coming in fifth with 131 points, only 21 points behind first, and 83 eliminations.

Tfue’s squad had a quieter performance on Sunday in the finals, with 124 points and 64 eliminations, but it was enough to secure first place over the likes of defending Fortnite World Cup champion Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf and his team.

The Fortnite star posted the results on Twitter, simply captioned “let’s f**king go.”

While neither of the three winners streamed their gameplay this week, Khanada followed Bugha throughout the final game nervously. 

He was in a call with Tfue and Fiber, waiting in anticipation for the World Cup champion to finish his game. Emotions ran to a fever pitch after everything was confirmed though, with the trio celebrating their opponent’s getting knocked out, securing them the win.

They took home $60,000 for their performance and qualified for the Season Finals, but for Tfue, it came with an extra little bit of vindication. In his first week without his long-term partners, he managed to secure his first Fortnite Champion Series win after weeks of being so close. He finished as high as fifth in previous weeks, and has had two top 10 placings.

On the other hand, Cloak and 72hrs struggled throughout their weekend, with the latter being disconnected multiple times during their attempted run. They made it to the finals alongside Owen ‘Animal’ Wright, but didn’t finish in the top 10.

Tfue will be looking to keep the wins coming with his new partners when the Season Finals kick off next weekend.

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.
