Fortnite World Cup Pro-Am Players & Format
Now we’re getting to the good stuff. Celebrities from the worlds of Hollywood, Fortnite, sports, and more will pour into this event as Epic creates another star-studded roster.
We enjoyed the last Pro-Am just fine, but fans will be expecting an even more extravagant list of competitors for Fortnite’s largest event yet. Please Epic Games, we need Keanu Reeves playing using the John Wick skin!
According to Epic’s blog post, the event will feature the usual celebrity showdowns in huge Customs matches. The two championship Duos from LA’s 2018 Pro-Am (Ninja & Marshmello) and the Summer Block Party Pro-Am (Airwaks + RL Grime) will be battling it out to see who is truly the best of the best in celebrity competition.
Players will be competing for charity money which the winners may grant to a charity of their choice. It’s a beautiful way for Epic to create attention around important causes while allowing the influencers’ choice to matter.
Alright, alright. We know you want to know whose going to be playing in the tourney. Well, Epic will be using the same wave-based reveal system as with the last Pro-Am. On July 18, they revealed the first wave with a staggering 12 players.

Hasbro announces new line of Fortnite toys
Epic Games have partnered with Hasbro to once again bring Fortnite characters to the real world in the form of toys.
Hasbro and Epic Games are working together again to create a new line of Victory Royale toys for Fortnite fans.
Fortnite has transcended gaming for a while. At this point, everyone has heard of Fortnite – even non-gamers. It’s a cultural icon at this point and has been immortalized by Hasbro toys before.
Now, Epic and Hasbro are teaming up again to bring modern Fortnite cosmetics to the figurine world. They released The Foundation toy for Season 6, with an announced release of other toys soon to come.
New Fortnite X Hasbro toys
Along with The Foundation are Meowscles, a shark, Lynx, Rippley, and many other characters from Chapter 2. The Loot Shark is even complete with a belly full of goodies, just as they were in-game.
We don’t have a word on when these toys will hit shelves, but preorders for The Foundation toy are now available for $39.99. You can grab yours on the Hasbro Pulse website.
We’ll keep you posted when the rest of the toys officially hit the shelves. They’ll make a great addition to your collection, desk, or gaming setup.

Epic Games reply to complaints of Fortnite storm visibility
The Fortnite storm is only getting less visible in Season 6. That is, unless you decide to cap your visuals with Performance Mode
The storm has only become denser and denser over recent Fortnite seasons, leading to extremely low visibility – unless players choose to use Performance Mode.
One problem has remained in the game from Season 5, however. The visibility of players inside the storm only seems to get worse, which is causing some fans to grow frustrated.
The darker storm tones of earlier Fortnite seasons have changed to a purple, foggy mess. You can barely see a few feet in front of you while running to the next storm circle, which is a massive downgrade from what we had just a few seasons ago.
This wouldn’t be as much of a problem if everyone was on the same playing field. Unfortunately, players who choose to use Performance Mode have a distinct advantage. Performance Mode completely removed the storm visibility issues – to the point where you can barely tell that you’re in the storm.
Reddit user u/EzBugatti99 posted a side-by-side comparison of Fortnite storm visibility with and without Performance Mode enabled. The difference is too massive to ignore.
Performance Mode is great for Fortnite players on lower-end PCs. You can choose to sacrifice some visual effects to achieve higher frame rates. Even some competitive players on high-end PCs are using it to boost their performance.
On the other hand, Epic likely never wanted Performance Mode to be necessary for anyone who wants to compete. Players who still want to experience Fortnite in high-detail won’t be on the same playing field as those who choose to use Performance mode. This isn’t even considering console players who don’t have the option to choose Performance Mode.
An Epic employee replied to this Reddit thread, saying, “We can discuss this with the team.” Only a few days later, they added the issue to the Forntite Community Issues Trello Board. It’s since been updated to “Fixed in Next Game Update,” which should be coming early next week.

Epic Games tease new Exotics & Raptor Eggs coming soon
In a blog post, Epic Games officially teased Raptor Eggs and new Exotic weapons coming soon to Fortnite Season 6.
Epic Games have officially teased previously-leaked Raptors in Fortnite Season 6, along with new Exotic weapons.
Fortnite Season 6 is still fresh, but we know that Epic have plans for the months ahead. We’ve already seen a few leaks that point to new skins and weapons coming to Fortnite, along with the potential addition of dinosaurs being added to the wildlife.
All of these came in the form of leaks from data miners until March 22. Epic released a blog post, giving players some tips on surviving during the new season.
Included in these tips were two small pieces of information that fans have latched onto. These are the eggs seen on the island and the addition of new “Unstable” Exotic weapons.
This phrasing likely relates to the Unstable Bow that was leaked at the beginning of the season, and the reference to the egg undoubtedly points to Raptors eventually hatching and patrolling the island.
With these elements officially mentioned by Epic, we can assume that we’ll begin to see new additions coming within the next few weeks.
The first time that we saw eggs on the island, they ended up being nothing but a teaser for future Battle Pass skins. This time, it looks like they’ll finally have
