The easiest way to go about this challenge is to boot up a Marvel Knockout match. This pits trios against one another who all spawn in with random superpowers. Depending on the powers you get, this challenge can range in difficulty, but even if you don’t have the best luck, you can still rack up eliminations. If you aren’t confident in your abilities, you’ll be happy to know that even eliminations made by your teammates will count toward your total, so you can play a support role and still complete this challenge.

For us, we had better luck using long-range powers, like Iron Man’s blasts. We sometimes would spawn in with Wolverine’s claws, which are only effective at close range. If you happen to get this, you’ll probably have a harder time gathering eliminations, and you might have to rely on finishing off opponents who are already damaged. You’ll also usually get a high damage power that’s mapped to the right shoulder button (R1 on PS4, RB on Xbox One, and R on Nintendo Switch). Try to be at least somewhat familiar with the various powers so you’re prepared when you attempt this challenge. Here’s a video of us gaining an elimination with Wolverine’s claws:

We got kind of lucky with the elimination above, due to the enemy being AFK, but you can at least get the gist of how its done.

The main thing to note is that XP Xtravaganza features multi-tiered challenges, offering XP for each stage you complete. In this case, there are three stages you need to overcome: Eliminating one enemy with a superpower, followed by three, and finally, seven. Unfortunately, you can’t get all 11 eliminations in a single match. You have to either finish a match or back out to the main menu so the first stage will register before the game will let you begin the second stage, and so on.

In other words, you can gain credit for stage one, immediately back out and boot up another match, gain credit for stage two, back out again, and finish up stage three. Because of this, you’ll have to play at least three matches in order to complete the challenge — possibly more if you don’t manage to complete one stage per match. At least your progress is cumulative, meaning your eliminations will save and you can pick up where you left off in a new match.

Since Fortnite is a living, breathing game, sometimes Marvel Knockout is not be available. If this is the case, you’ll have to attempt it in a regular mode like Solos, Duos, or Squads. To gain a superpower in these modes, you’ll need to take out one of the various heroes/villains around the map. These are characters like Iron Man, Wolverine, or Doctor Doom. We advise to take out Doctor Doom, as he’s the easiest character to defeat. You might want to let your team know you’re going for this challenge so they can help you take down the hero/villain.

Nonetheless, after they’re down, they’ll drop a superpower that corresponds to them. Equip it, and you can then use it to take down enemies. You’ll probably notice that this method is a lot harder to actually pull off eliminations with superpowers, since it requires so much more effort and features so many more variables.

Because of that, we recommend making a beeline for this challenge in Marvel Knockout as soon as you can, so you won’t have to worry about that mode disappearing. Either way, once you’ve completed all three stages of the challenge by eliminating 11 opponents, you’ll be all set.

How to damage opponents with the Lock On Pistol in Fortnite
The Lock On Pistol in Fortnite.

As part of a weekly challenge in Fortnite, players are tasked with dealing 200 damage with the Lock On Pistol. This challenge has caused some confusion, as acquiring the weapon isn't as consistent as players might have hoped. In this guide, we'll show you how to get your hands on the Lock On Pistol and how to deal 200 damage with it in Fortnite.
How to find the Lock On Pistol

First, you need to get your hands on the Lock On Pistol. Currently, the only known ways of finding one are by opening chests or collecting them from Supply Drops. The weapon isn't available from NPCs or any method just yet. This means you'll want to head to a high-traffic area like Mega City to find a bunch of chests. Keep in mind that Mega City will be busy, but there are plenty of chests available. If you want to play it safe, you can visit a different point of interest (POI). Keep opening chests until you get your hands on the Lock On Pistol.

How to survive storm phases carrying an Epic weapon in Fortnite
Character jumping while holding Epic weapon in Fortnite.

A new Fortnite challenge for surviving storm phases while carrying an Epic weapon has caused some confusion, as the quest's wording isn't exactly clear. Thankfully, the challenge is much easier than it seems, and once you know what to do, you can get through it relatively quickly. Here's how to survive storm phases while carrying an Epic weapon in Fortnite.
What is an Epic weapon?
Fortnite uses a rarity system with its weapons, which are denoted by colors. Purple weapons are Epic, but keep in mind you can utilize any weapon of higher rarity to complete this quest. As long as the weapon is at least Epic, you'll earn credit for surviving storm phases.
How to get an Epic weapon

There are several ways to get Epic weapons. One way is to simply find one from chests or as floor loot, but this isn't as reliable. You can also purchase Epic weapons from NPCs around the map. Nearly all main hubs have an NPC who sells weapons, so be sure to talk with them if you have the funds. Using an Upgrade Station is another solid option for collecting an Epic weapon, though it's expensive. Another option is to defeat the Highcard Boss found at Brutal Bastion, Shattered Slabs, and Mega City. Upon defeat, the Highcard Boss drops a Mythic Havoc Suppressed Rifle.

How to give specialist a command in Fortnite
Character interacting with NPC in Fortnite.

As part of Fortnite's Spring Breakout Daily Quests, players are tasked with giving a hired specialist character a command. Of course, the game doesn't specify how to do this exactly, leading to some confusion amongst the community. Thankfully, we've got everything you need to know about completing this new quest with ease in Fortnite.
How to hire a specialist

Specialist Characters are specific NPCs all around the map. If you pull up the quest itself, you'll actually see a map of all the Specialist Characters. Keep in mind that not all NPCs fall into this category, so be sure to look at the map. We like the one to the very north of Breakwater Bay as it's usually out of the way. Once you find them, you'll need to pay 200 Gold Bars to hire them. If you don't have the funds, be sure to play more and complete bounties as needed.
How to give a character a command
After you've hired the Specialist Character, they'll be on your side for the duration of the match. If you look at the top left side of the screen, you'll see an icon that represents the Follower Communications wheel. Press and hold left on the D-pad on console or the middle mouse button on PC to get this menu to appear. Once it does, you can pick from a list of commands such as wait or follow. To complete the quest, you simply need to issue one command and after the NPC does what you ask, you'll earn credit for completing it.
