Here are the best moments and highlights from the very first week of the Fortnite Battle Royale Fall Skirmish tournament, in which players are competing for $10 million in prizes across a span of six weeks.
Epic Games invited over 500 Fortnite personalities, e-sports professionals and social media stars to attend and participate in the Fortnite Fall Skirmish tournament, with the players being split into five different Clubs that they represent over the six weeks. Think of them as houses, like in Harry Potter.
These personalities, when put onto a battleground together, make for some incredible highlights, and others – not so much. Here are the best moments and highlights from the first week of the Fortnite Fall Skirmish.
