Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has given his verdict on Riot Games’ new FPS title, Valorant, and explains why it has no chance of stealing away Fortnite’s player base, for one key reason.

While the majority of the streaming community was full of praise for Riot’s new tactical FPS, one of the biggest streamers on Twitch, Tfue, was the complete opposite, calling Valorant “boring” and an “old man’s game”.

Tfue is best known now for his Fortnite skills, considered one of the best players in the game, but before Fortnite he was also a top player in other shooter titles, including PUBG.

Valorant’s gameplay is slower and tactical than some FPS games, meaning it’s not for everyone.

Although he almost exclusively plays Fortnite now, his viewers were still interested to hear his verdict on the new game of the moment, Valorant, so he dived in for a couple games on April 7, as the Closed Beta began.

It didn’t take the Fortnite pro long to come to the conclusion that this simply wasn’t the game for him though, explaining that he found the general gameplay loop “boring” and the pace of the matches too slow.

“It’s pretty f**king boring dude, I don’t like playing on a team with people. I just like 1v1,” he said, after a viewer doubted how much they’d play. “This game is boring me. I mean, it’s a good game, it’s just boring.”

He went on to say that it’s for “older people”, and that he’d “rather just play CS:GO.”

“I feel like [Valorant] is like CS:GO, but except for like skill, you just kill people with abilities,” he concluded, before jumping into a match.

Losing a close game by 9 rounds to 10, Tfue explained to his Fortnite duo Scoped why he doesn’t think Valorant will be a hit with younger players – Fortnite’s primary target audience.

“It’s just so f**king slow, kids aren’t going to want to play this, it’s more of like a patient, strategy-based, old man’s game, you know?”

Eventually, Tfue’s team lost the match by 13 rounds to 11, and he quickly exited and went back to Fortnite, where he and his duo got back to winning ways.

His comments may not deter Riot Games though, as they likely weren’t targeting the younger gamers who would rather play Fortnite, given the more punishing gameplay in Valorant. Instead, they’re more likely targeting players who favor games like CS:GO, Rainbow 6 Siege or Overwatch.

The beta got off to a hot start on Twitch too, pulling in over 1.7 million concurrent viewers at its peak. Although some of this will be down to the drops for access to the beta, which could only be acquired through watching streams.

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.

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.
