The Twitch Rivals Fortnite Streamer Bowl concluded last night. Take a look at the results along with some of the best moments from the competition.

The Fortnite Streamer Bowl was incredibly entertaining. This was one of the most engaging Fortnite competitions we’ve seen – potentially because of the number of big names involved.

The last round of the tournament forced all of the players to land at the center island, which was a terrible idea. Outside of that, the format worked surprisingly well. It was easy to follow the action and end-game fights were far less hectic than usual. Anyone who has watched a Fortnite tournament knows how tough it can be with 40 nametags in the fourth storm circle.

Ahead, we’ll recap the results and some of the best clips coming out of the night featuring Tfue, Clix, Bugha, Nickmercs, LosPollos, TimTheTatMan, and more.

Clix and Tarik Cohen of the Chicago Bears won the competition in spectacular fashion with 23 eliminations across four games. A lot of their points came in the final game, which was an RNG-fest for the most part.

Still, the duo showed that they have what it takes to win when the chips are down. Tfue was another standout performer – we’ll get to him below.

Other honorable mentions include Reverse2k doing his best to carry Baker Mayfield, Chap’s in-game awareness, and favorites Bugha and JuJu Smith-Schuster placing fourth after scoring 0 points in the first two games. Now, onto some of the storylines.

Tfue wins MVP

Tfue took home the MVP of the night – which is a pretty meaningless title but makes sense in relation to the format and his performance.

Game 1 was where Tfue and Kyler Murray really did their damage. Tfue clutched-up a 1v1 against Symfuhny with 8 HP, dropping him a GG and a Pigeotto burn in the post-game interview.

Symfuhny wasn’t the only fellow streamer that Tfue “sonned” during the tournament. Bugha had to hot-drop next to Tfue two times in a row. He ended up dying both times.

Bugha brought it back and won Game three, but not before dying to Tfue twice in a row. This time, Tfue killed Bugha and JuJu with grenades, similar to what happened when the two streamers met in pubs last week.

Dad Mercs

NickMercs also showed who was boss during the Streamer Bowl, taking out UnknownxArmy in the first game of the tournament.

There can only be one controller king, and the young buck had to go into time out when Daddy Mercs came out to play. Better luck next time, young fella.

Poor LosPollos. He was outclassed on every level. Some of the NFL players could have easily killed Los in a 1v1. He’s one hell of an entertainer but had no business being in the same lobby as people like Clix, Bugha, Unknown, and Chap.

To add insult to injury, LosPollos got killed by his bully of an older brother figure in NickMercs.

Nick later roasted LosPollos when talking to TimTheTatMan between games. “I killed the best two players in the lobby,” he told Tim, “UnknownxArmy and Los!”

Nick and partner Mike Evans popped-off in the first game. They killed Unkown, LosPollos, TimTheTatMan, and Chap among others – although Chap’s trap was eventually what killed Nick.

Clix pops off

Clix won the whole competition and earned his paycheck in the last fight. A lot of his success came down to the final round – which was a mess of a format, to say the least.

Still, Clix came out on top by securing the best loot in the lobby through several kills. He killed NickMercs (who had no ammo), pickaxed Symfuhny, and won a sweaty 1v1 against Bugha to cap it off (above).

The event was full of impressive plays from Clix, but the game-winning kill was a 200-IQ trap play from the box-fighting veteran on Tfue, who was in second place.

Tfue was in the best position during the final game, and even knocked Clix’s partner Tarik Cohen. Clix used his downed partner as bait to get Tfue to run into a trap. From there, Clix only had to tickle Tfue to finish the kill.

Most of the streamers carried their NFL partners, aside from a few standout performances. Aydan’s partner Kurt Benkert actually carried his streamer to placement points in one of the games. From a spectator’s perspective, it looked like Benkert had the highest level of skill out of any NFL player.

It was Tarik Cohen who took home the gold with his partner, Clix. Cohen got carried most of the way, of course, but also held his own in several moments. He clutched-up to secure a kill on TimTheTatMan and save his partner. Tim had trapped Clix and was looking to manufacture the upset, but Cohen wasn’t having it.

The Streamer Bowl was one of the most entertaining Fortnite competitions that have happened – apart from the final round, of course.

The format seemed to be a bit restrictive, but it was a lot easier to follow the end-games without so many players alive. I don’t know if I want to see this format for official esports events, but it was a fantastic way to watch an invitational.

XP Coins have returned to Fortnite Season 5. Here’s where to find all of them as of Season 5 Week 7.

Fortnite Season 5 is offering players a plethora of ways to earn XP and rank up through the Battle Pass. The most recently-added XP-gathering method is through the XP Coins.

Most players will remember XP Coins from the past few seasons. They seemed to be everywhere back then, but they were removed at the start of the season.

Ahead, we’ll give you a map of all the XP coin locations. We’ll make sure to update you as more XP Coins are added to the map.

Fortnite XP Coin locations

XP coins are scattered all across the map. You can find them from Catty Corner to Stealthy Stronghold. Here’s a map of all of the available XP Coins, so far.

We’ll keep this post updated as more XP coins become available. You’ll need to reach level 250 to unlock all of the enlightened skins in Season 5, so finding these will be well worth your time.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 is here. Take a look at all of the challenges and how to complete them.

Fortnite Season 5 is chugging along, but there’s still about two months left. The holiday break extended the latest season, so there’s still plenty of time to make your way through the Battle Pass.

The Week 7 challenges are relatively straightforward, with most of them able to be completed without too much effort.

A couple of these challenges will have you searching the same area in Slurpy Swamp, so a favorable bus path in Team Rumble will allow you to complete them in one shot. Here’s what you’ll need to do.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges

The good news in the Week 7 challenges is that all of them can be completed in Team Rumble. We have a separate article detailing the locations of Books in Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands. You can find that here.

The Legendary challenge requires players to deal damage to opponents in Vehicles. This one is going to be a headache, as there’s no way to force another player to be inside of a car or boat when you shoot them.

Hopefully, you can get into a game of Team Rumble with like-minded enemies – sitting in Motorboats and trading shots with you. If not, it’s going to take some serious gaming to finish this one. Good luck!

How to disable pre-edits in Fortnite

After over a year of fan requests, Epic have added a ‘disable pre-edit’ option to Fortnite. Here’s where you can find it.

Published

In v15.20, Epic Games added a much-requested setting to Fortnite: ‘disable pre-edits.’ Here’s how it works and how to select it.

Finally, after years of Reddit threads, Twitter posts, and pro players begging, Epic added a ‘disable pre-edit’ setting to Fortnite.

Here’s everything you need to know about the new setting, including how it works and where to find it.

What does ‘pre-editing’ mean?

Pre-editing refers to the ability to edit a structure before placing it. The most popular use of pre-edits throughout Fortnite history was a cone/ramp edit when controller players had to use Combat Pro.

Now, however, very few players use pre-edits. Instead, pre-edits offer an obstacle, as they’re almost always completed by mistake. Of course, there are still some niche applications for pre-edits, but most players wanted Epic to add an option to disable these edits.

How to disable pre-edits

You can find the new option under the settings tab (cog wheel) in the start menu. Scroll down to the “Building” section, and you’ll see four options. One of them is the new “Disable Pre-Edit Option.”

If you turn this off, you’ll no longer be able to edit structures before placing them – good news for the bulk of the Fortnite community.

If may have taken Epic years to finally add this option, but it’s finally here. Next stop, an FoV slider!
