TSM’s Daequan Really Doesn’t Like C4 in Fortnite and Has an Idea on How It Can Be Improved

Team SoloMid professional Fortnite player ‘Daequan’ has made his feelings clear about the Remote Explosives (C4) in Fortnite.

He tweeted out his displeasure with how strong the C4 is in terms of destroying builds and structures, and presented an idea for how they can be balanced and improved.


Added in March, Fortnite’s Remote Explosives were designed to wipe out structures and eliminate players that were in its blast radius upon explosion.

However, many among the player-base have expressed that the C4 is too overpowered, and a few randomly thrown units can cause a lot of damage.


While many are against the amount of health damage the explosives inflict on players, Daequan’s main gripe is with how quickly the C4 can tear down even the most sturdy and reinforced builds.

He had this to say in response to a Twitter poll posted by his teammate ‘Hamlinz’.

The thing about c4 that’s annoying imo is the fact that you can spend 300 resources and 1 c4 destroys it all even if you have a solid foundation. Just need to nerf the radius imo so you have to strategically place them and not just throw them around like a maniac.

One can understand the frustration players like Daequan must feel when they use a lot of materials to build impressive structures and gain the high ground advantage over opponents, only to see it all turn into rubble with a few, randomly thrown C4.


Even Epic have indirectly revealed that they too believe the Remote Explosives are too strong and not competitive, having banned them from the recent $250,000 ‘Summer Skirmish’ Duo tournament.

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

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.
