Reverse2K, Mongraal & Epikwhale among Season 4 FNCS Finals winners

The Fortnite Season 4 FNCS is in the books. Take a look at the results, here.

The Fortnite Season 4 FNCS Grand Finals wrapped up this past weekend and saw some of the biggest names in the game competing for their share hundreds of thousands of dollars.

This was the fist FNCS competition that had two days of heats and Grand Finals each week. Instead of playing six hours of marathon Fortnite in one sitting, players spread out their performance over the course of the weened. Not only did the additional games make the Season 4 FNCS more competitive, but it added to the drama going into day 2.

Ahead, we’ll take a look at the Season 4 FNCS results in each of the “Big 3” regions: Europe, NA-East, and NA-West.

Mongraal, Mitr0 & Tayson win EU FNCS

The European region was dominated by one of the favorite trios to win the event, landing in the most powerful POI on the map: Mongraal, Mitr0, and Tayson landing at Stark Industries. The trio had a massive lead going into day two and only had to protect it and add to it, going forward.

The only team that was close to striking distance was JannisZ, and1zr, and Duckontop. In fact, the trio eliminated Mongraal and his team in the final game, making it seem like they had a chance to win it all. Unfortunately, they were eliminated soon after and came in second.

The top ten was dominated by popular teams, with Th0masHD and his trio coming in 3rd, Wolfiez coming in 6th, and the trio of MrSavage, Benjyfishy, and LetsHe finishing 8th. Here’s a look at how the top 10 ended.

Reverse2k, Deyy & Mero win NA-East FNCS

One of the newest organizations in Fortnite made a splash in their first tournament as Team New Age players Reverse2k, Deyy, and Mero won the NA-East FNCS.

Many Fortnite fans know Reverse2k as Ninja’s duo partner for the World Cup, but Reverse took the competitive side of the game much more seriously than his old teammate – as witnessed by his latest win.

Filling out the top 10 were names like Edgey, Bugha, Zayt, Slackes, Zexrow, Av, Khanada, and many more. The team of Illest, Bizzle, and Clix were disappointed with a 14th-place finish – one spot below Ronaldo at 13. Here’s a look at the top 10.

 Arkhram, Rehx & EpikWhale

Fans of competitive Fortnite shouldn’t be surprised to see Arkham, Rehx, and EpikWhale win the NA-West region of the Season 4 FNCS. What is surprising, however, is the margian by which they won: 109 points above Little, Temple B and Pelican in second.

Two of the other fan-favorites in the region – Falconer’s trio and Reet’s trio – rounded off the top 5 with 146 and 141 points, respectively. This might be the most top-heavy region in all of Fortnite esports.

The positioning of players in each region lends credibility to the idea that Trios could be the most competitive Fortnite mode in existence. There was far less randomness happening in each match – especially when you compere it to Solos.

We haven’t seen any official announcement of the Season 5 FNCS format, but most fans and players are assuming that it will be duos – based on the recent addition of Duos Arena. We’ll keep you posted when we learn more.

How to unlock the Armored Kratos style in Fortnite

Kratos from God of War has made it to Fortnite. Find out how to unlock the Armored Kratos style for free in Season 5.

Published

Kratos has landed on the Fortnite island, but his single style isn’t his only form. Here’s how to unlock his Armored outfit.

After a full season worth of crossovers, Epic slowed things down with Fortnite Season 5. The new season was released with only one crossover character in the roster: The Mandalorian.

It only took a couple of days for Epic to add to their Season 5 crossover roster. On December 3, Kratos from God of War came to the Item Shop. This preceeds the rumored addition of Master Chief from the Halo franchise.

Although God of War is a Playstation exclusive video game, players on all platforms could grab Kratos and his skin pack. You know that Sony had to do something for their console owners, however.

PlayStation players who play a single game with the Kratos skin will unlock the Armored Kratos style for their skin – it’s as simple as that.

Unfortunately, Android, Xbox, PC, and Nintendo Switch players will need to stick to the standard Kratos outfit – unless you have a PS5 lying around.

If you don’t have a PlayStation on-hand, the only option you have is to ask a trustworthy friend to log onto your account and play a game for you. Giving out your account information is risky and usually a bad idea, so proceed with caution.

Hopefully for Xbox players, Microsoft will have the same deal with Epic Games when Master Chief comes to the Item Shop. He’s one of the most iconic characters in all of gaming and will probably be a popular pick on all platforms.

All Fortnite Season 5 Exotic Weapon locations

Fortnite Season 5 brought Exotic weapons to the game to replace Mythics. Here’s where to find all of them.

Fortnite Season 5 introduced Exotic weapons to the game instead of Mythics, giving more players access to them. Here’s where you can find them.

There’s no shortage of new mechanics in Fortnite Season 5, with the addition of NPCs, quests, and a whole lot more.

Mythics have returned to the game in Season 5 but in a limited capacity. The only classic Mythic items in Fortnite Season 5 include The Mandalorian’s Jetpack and sniper rifle, both available from the bounty hunter himself.

The other items in the game are classified as Exotics. There’s only one of each Mythic item in each game, but can be multiple Exotic weapons.

You can purchase these Exotic weapons from specific NPCs across the map. Of course, this means you’ll need to save up your Gold Bars to afford them.

Twitter user @MikeDulaimi created an easy-to-follow guide on how to locate all of the Exotic weapons in Fortnite. You can purchase them from NPCs in the areas surrounding Hunter’s Haven, The Zero Point, Dirty Docks, Craggy Cliffs, and Stealthy Stronghold

Mythic items were relatively controversial for the past few seasons of Fortnite – especially in competitive modes. Doom’s Mystical Bomb and Kit’s Shockwave Launcher dominated tournament play for the past two seasons, and the competitive community largely called for them to be removed.

We’re curious to see how this community treats Exotic weapons. They’re more widely available and aren’t as powerful as Mythics, making them more balanced than the latter – that is, until a player eliminates the NPC selling them.

Glitches

Game-breaking bug causing invisibility/God Mode in Fortnite Season 5

Players have already found a game-breaking glitch in Fortnite Season 5, causing players to go invisible and become invulnerable to damage.

Published

Fortnite Season 5 wasn’t released bug-free. In fact, there’s already a game-breaking bug causing players to become invisible and invulnerable to damage.

Every major update in almost every video game brings a few bugs with it, and Fortnite is no different. This is almost always the case when video games add new mechanics, as Fortnite did with Season 5.

This game-breaking bug has to do with the new sand mechanic. For those who don’t know, the center of the Fortnite island is now covered with quicksand. If you stand on the sand for too long, it sinks you in.

The quicksand isn’t a bad thing. It can actually benefit players, offering a hiding spot and increased movement speed, as seen below.

However, on the flip side, it’s also causing a bug that makes players invisible and invulnerable to damage. This isn’t the first invisibility glitch we’ve seen in Fortnite. Older patches had the same issue with Port-A-Potties.

This glitch appears to be more prevalent than the previous ones, however. We’ve seen several reports of this happening to players – sometimes even multiple times in a single play session. The Port-A-Potty glitch required more intention on the part of the players involved.

Hopefully, Epic get this sorted sooner rather than later. We wouldn’t be surprised to see the sand-sinking mechanic disabled ahead of the next update if Epic can’t push a hotfix to address the problem.

We don’t know whether this glitch is intentional on the part of infracting players or if there’s a method to trigger the issue. We’ll let you know when we find out more about the problem.
