After standing since June, the record for most kills in a solo match of Fortnite Battle Royale has finally been broken.

It seems that Fortnite world records are being broken on a near daily basis and October 29 has been no different as a pair of records have fallen today alone.


Just hours after the duo vs squad record was set, ‘diddytheboy’ has just broken the solo record on PC by securing a 32-kill Victory Royale.

While we’ve seen plenty of records broken over the last week, we don’t see the solo records beaten too often, since it’s much harder to slay out when you’re playing all alone.


It seems like that didn’t matter at all to diddytheboy, though, as he wreaked havoc on a solo lobby, leaving a trail of bodies in his wake all game long.

Throughout the course of this 17-minute game, diddytheboy manages to take down his enemies without even breaking a sweat, barely getting damage the entire game on his way to a whopping 32 kills.

Perhaps the most impressive part of his whole run is that he did it while playing in a $1000 contest online, adding to the pressure of the already high-pressure situation of knowing you’re putting on a world-record performance.


The contest was held on GamerzArena and tasked players with securing as many kills in one game and this performance gave him the win, netting him $300 in addition to bragging rights as the world record holder.

Given that this record had been untouched since June when Baldy put up 30 kills, diddytheboy’s performance is just that much more impressive.

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

  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory

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.
