A new pair of Fortnite players now hold the world record for most eliminations on console in the Duos vs Squads category.

Competitive players ‘Toonah‘, who competes for Radiant Esports, and ‘Haslam,’ are the first pair of players to drop 40 eliminations when queuing up in a Squads lobby on console.

The previous Duos vs Squads record on console was help by players ‘Rubes_94’ and ‘Upshall,’ who got 39 eliminations early in May.

Toonah uploaded the full gameplay of the match, with both players dropping 20 eliminations each for the record setting performance.

It’s worth noting that neither player team-killed the other at the end of the match, which further legitimizes their record. Although friendly fire is disabled, there are still ways to eliminate teammates without shooting at them, and players and teams in the past have tried to exploit that feature to add additional kills to their total.

The most interesting part about this whole development is that this 40 elimination match was actually played way back in June, and neither player had any idea that they had just set a record.

In the video, Toonah explains that, for them, it had just been another warm-up match ahead of a tournament.

“We got 40 kills and we’re like ‘nah whatever, that’s probably not the record,’ and that was in June,” he explained. “Yesterday, our buddies were like ‘yo what’s your best kills,’ and we’re like ‘we got 40 in a Duo Squad one time,’ and they’re like ‘bro, 39’s the record.” So I went and got the gameplay, and here we are.”

Regardless of when they achieved this feat, they are the only ones in the world who can legitimately prove that they’ve managed to get 40 eliminations in a Duos vs Squads match on console Fortnite.

The video uploaded by Toonah, which includes the full gameplay of the match, can be viewed below:

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.
