UMG Events will no longer be involved with Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem’s Friday Fortnite tournaments, the company has revealed.

In a statement on Twitter, UMG stated that it is “delighted by the impact” that the incredibly popular events have had on the Fortnite community but that its role had now come to an end.


UMG goes on to say that millions of viewers tuned in every week to watch their favorite players and streamers compete in Friday Fortnite events and thanks KEEMSTAR, the players, and the Friday Fortnite partners for helping to make it such a success.

The news about UMG breaking ties with Friday Fortnite comes shortly after KEEMSTAR’s announcement that the July 20 edition of the event has been cancelled following a scheduling conflict.


Epic Games is hosting a “Summer Skirmish” tournament at the same time as Friday Fortnite was due to be played and, according to KEEMSTAR, most of the players that were due to play in his competition have now been invited to Epic’s.

The Drama Alert host has made it clear that he does not want to hold the players back from playing tournaments worth $500,000, but seems disappointed in Epic Games for capping the prize pool of Friday Fortnite at just $20,000 and then going head-to-head with him in scheduling.

With Friday Fortnite’s partnership with UMG coming to an end, the future of the tournament is uncertain. Given the impressive viewing figures, and the popularity with players and streamers, it seems unlikely that it will disappear entirely.

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
  • Drive a car from Sweaty Sands to Misty Meadows in less than 4 minutes without getting out
  • Deal damage after knocking an opponent back with Storm’s Whirlwind Blast (1,000)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Coral Castle (500)

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.
