NinjaAll this – from playing video games?

What does Ninja do?

Ninja is a streamer – meaning he streams video games on the internet and people tune in to watch. Some viewers will turn his stream on to watch his ridiculous gaming ability while others will tune in to be entertained by his personality and antics.


How did he become famous?

Before streaming, Ninja was a professional player in Halo – playing for a number of teams but making his name on the Luminosity Gaming roster. While he wasn’t a legendary player in the game, he was still a star. However, after a few years of competing, he moved away from professional gaming.

    After being pestered by fans in late 2017, he switched to Fortnite and since then, he has grown exponentially. Ninja regularly attracts hundreds of thousands of viewers to his almost-daily broadcast where he will do anything from play games, to sing and even dance after he picks up a win.

    Where can he be found?

    You can find Blevins streaming on twitch.tv/ninja almost daily. Although, his schedule has changed recently as he gets to the chance to do more and more promotional and entertainment content outside of his stream.

    Ninja also regularly uploads highlights from stream to his incredibly fast-growing YouTube channel. So, if you miss out on any of the live action, you can catch some of the best action on his YouTube.

    He can also be found on Twitter under @Ninja, where he will regularly tease things he’s got coming up and announce when is going live on Twitch. Ninja is approaching four million followers on the social media platform so why not help him out?

    Does he do anything outside of streaming?

    Well, yes. While streaming and gaming is his main thing, Blevins has ventured into a number of other fields.

    At the end of 2018, he signed a music deal with the Astralwerks label and released his first album ‘Ninjawerks: Vol. 1’ alongside some of the top EDM artists in the world.

    Ninja is just the first in a line of gaming entertainment stars who are set to hit the mainstream thanks to their incredibly large followings and extremely entertaining personalities.

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

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.
