Aside from surviving and getting eliminations. time is another important aspect to consider when playing Fortnite: Battle Royale.

Good players will always keep one eye on the miniature timer under the mini-map in order to avoid getting caught off guard by the incoming Storm.

However, time can play roles other than with the Storm, as Team SoloMid content creator Jimmy ‘HighDistortion’ Moreno was quick to find out when he found himself up against the clock.

Playing with several of his friends early on June 27th, the streamer was nearing the end of his match when he realized that the Fortnite servers were moments away from being shut down for the launch of the v4.5 update.

As is usually the case with the release of any major game update, Epic Games will disable matchmaking about 20-25 minutes before shutting off the servers, giving players who were already in a match the chance to finish.

Knowing he did not have much time left, the former Gears of War pro turned Fortnite extraordinaire frantically searched for the last three opponent alive, eventually finding them in Snobby Shores.

Trying his hardest to eliminate them as fast as he could, HighDistortion eventually got all three players, with the servers shutting down almost exactly one second after he got the final kill.

The players’ reactions of intense laughter and celebration after the loading screen popped up was purely priceless, knowing that they had the proverbial “buzzer beater” in Fortnite.

Although HighDistortion has tallied up countless wins in the many months he has played Fortnite, this Victory Royale is likely one he will never forget.

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.
