The next Celebrity Pro-Am event takes place at the Summer Block Party on June 16th. We’ve got a list of power rankings for all the revealed duos!
Fortnite news can get a little moody from time to time with reports of behind-the-scenes drama and payout scandals. So, every once in awhile, it’s good to just have a little fun.
With the next Pro-Am fast approaching, we thought we’d put together our own power rankings for the event. Let’s get right into it!
FortniteINTEL Pro-Am Power Rankings
Epic Games has revealed 88 players (44 duos) that will be attending the next Pro-Am event on June 16th. The field is packed with talent, but we’ve also got some newcomers to Fortnite in actors, musicians, and more.
Our Power Rankings go from Number 1 to Number 44 (not all duos are revealed yet), best chance of winning to the “worst”. All of this is in good fun and not meant as any type of “diss” towards one player or another.
TOP 10 Pro-Am Rankings
1. Tfue + Josh Hart
Tfue might not be playing alongside his partner, Cloakzy, but this man could carry essentially anybody. The player has incredible talent in Fortnite and brings his A-game to every event. And Josh Hart is no slouch himself. He’ll surely bring his competitive mindset from the world IRL sports.
2. Cloakzy + Dillion Francis
If Tfue’s in the top spot, Cloakzy has to be second behind him. The duo shred through players on a daily basis and provide entertainment to hundred of thousands. Dillion Francis isn’t competitive player whatsoever (musician by trade) and could weigh Cloak down just enough.
3. Ghost Aydan + Robert Abisi
As you might noticed, we’re focused on the Fortnite players before their non-gaming teammates. Same goes for our third duo as Robert Abisi is a wildcard, but Aydan is most certainly not. Aydan reams pros in build fights and thrives in chaotic gameplay. He’ll make quick work of any inexperienced players.
4. Ninja + Marshawn Lynch
The King of Fortnite, Ninja, isn’t gonna let a crowd down. When it comes to LAN events, Ninja knows how to play with the hype turned to 1000. Mr. Lynch himself is also a hardcore gamer and has appeared in several video games in the past. They’ll be a power duo to watch for.
5. SypherPK + Reggie Jackson
The Pro-Am have heavy weight on players that can hold their own, even when their teammate is inexperienced. While many of the celebrities will train up a little bit before the event, the majority of victories will be up to the pros. SypherPK has proven time and time again that he has that “clutch factor” to win when the odds are against him.
6. Nickmercs + Kyle Van Noy
Nickmercs is the most watched controller player in Fortnite and brings his passion for gaming to every event. He’ll surely have a lot of fun, but don’t expect Nickmercs to let loose at the Pro-Am. The brawny Fortnite pro will bring it all with the full weight of FaZe Clan behind him.
7. TimTheTatman + Jay Mewes
TimTheTatman may be “just” a casual in the eyes of professional Fortnite players, but this bearded man can pack a punch. The streamer has competed in several Friday Fortnites and has won many smaller Fortnite tournaments.
8. CourageJD + Brendon Urie
CourageJd recently joined 100 Thieves after Nickmerc’s departure from the org. The streamer will be playing under the org’s name for the first time in a major event. While he may a jovial character, he was a competitive passion and love of esports that could help him fly through the ranks.
9. DrLupo + Jordan Fisher
DrLupo is another caster and “casual” Fortnite player that is attending the Pro-Am. The player has performed well in several online tournaments and shares Courage’s passion for all things Fortnite. Will he be able to carry that fire to a higher placement?
10. Valkyrae + Justin Jones
Valkyrae holds her own against most Fortnite players and plays the game daily on her streams. With thousands of hours of experience and a skilled arm for shooters, we’d be surprised if she didn’t perform fairly well in the casual setting of a Pro-Am.
Rankings 11-44 for Pro-Am
11. Cizzorz + Meyers Leonard
12. SB Airwaks + RL Grime
13. Ewok + Kurt Benkurt
14. Nick Eh 30 + Joey Bosa
15. Pokimane + Martin Doherty
16. FearItSelf + Blake Martinez
17. Gotaga + Jordyn Jones
18. Muselk + JuJu Smith-Schuster
19. Loserfruit + Joel McHale
20. Lachlan + Cody Walker
21. AviveHD + Cray
22. Lazarbeam + Hannibal Buress
23. Typical Gamer + Jimmy O. Yang
24. ONE_Shot_GURL + Gallant
25. Hey Stan + Liam McIntyre
26. BuckeFPS + Kenneth Faried
27. Bell + Reina Washio
28. Vikkstar123 + Martin Starr
29. TBNRFrags + JT Brown
30. Samara Redway + Marisha Ray
31. Patriota + Kyla-Drew Simmons
32. Flakes Power + Douglas Costa
33. JacobYT + Connor Ball
34. Scarlet + Elly
35. Wildcat + Janina Gavankar
36. Truetriz + Murda Beatz
37. Kayuun + Nick Shanholtz
38. Acau + Chandler Riggs
39. RoyalistIQ + Xavier Woods
40. VP FiveSkill + Taven Bryan
41. Pipepunk + Wax Motif
42. Folagor + Bruce Brown
43. Markilokuras + Witt Lowry
44. Pow3r + Lee Nguyen
Fortnite v15.40 leaked skins and cosmetics revealed
Epic Games have revealed the new Fortnite v15.40 update and leakers have already found a bunch of new skins.
Epic Games has dropped patch v15.40 in Fortnite and with it comes a boat load of leaked skins as well as cosmetics.
The latest update brought back one of the game’s older weapons, which had been vaulted for some time, and that’s the Flint Knock pistol.
As the pirate theme died long ago in Chapter 2, the weapon hasn’t been around for much of Chapter 2 – but now it’s back in the loot pool.
As usual, following an update, leakers have been hard at work looking around for any potential teasers for upcoming content. To that point, leaked skins and cosmetics have emerged.
Fortnite v15.40 leaked skins
Before we dive into the individual skins and how they’re going to look in Fortnite, it’s worth noting VastBlast discovered four new bundles are included.
These can be seen below – coming with individual pickaxes, back blings, and more.
On top of that, ShiinaBR revealed how some of the new skins shape up in-game.
Last but not least is the SypherPK Locker Bundle, found by iFireMonkey.
Fortnite v15.40 leaked cosmetics
Here’s the list of new cosmetics leaked, courtesy of HYPEX – one of the game’s most accurate leakers.
As you can see, a number of weapon wraps and other cosmetics are in the works.
Now, it’s only a matter of time before they’re added to the battle royale experience. Which one do you have eyes for? Let us know by tweeting us @FortniteINTEL on Twitter.
Fortnite v15.40 early patch notes: Flint Knock returns, LTMs & more
The “most amazing” Fortnite patch ever has been revealed, and here’s everything that’s included.
Epic Games has confirmed a few key details on Fortnite’s v15.40 update. From all the new content to an exact release time, here’s everything there is to know.
Another week brings us another Fortnite update. Fresh content is always right around the corner in Epic’s battle royale and this latest batch has fans eager to jump back in.
Not only are popular limited time modes back in full force, but a fan favorite weapon is also being unvaulted. Moreover, the game should be smoother than ever thanks to the latest wave of bug fixes.
The February 16 update is finally here but before we get there, here’s everything we know about Fortnite’s 15.40 patch.
Fortnite v15.40 patch downtime
No different from previous weeks, Epic Games has confirmed the exact timing for the next update. Fortnite’s v15.40 patch will be deployed on Tuesday, February 16. Downtime is scheduled to begin at roughly 4AM ET | 10 AM BST | 9 AM UTC.
While the new update brings new content, it will also remove various “unreleased assets are props,” Epic added. This means downtime could be a little longer than usual as the developers overhaul bigger chunks of the game.
However, as a result of these changes, the overall file size of Fortnite should be reduced moving forward.
Fortnite v15.40 patch notes
Epic had teased the return of a popular item. “Blast back with an unvaulted favorite,” they shared in a February 15 tweet.
‘Blast’ points towards something explosive on the way. From the Quad Launcher to Dynamite, there are plenty of explosive options that have been vaulted away for a number of months.
On February 16, once the dust settled on the update, it was revealed that the Flint Knock Pistol was the one returning to battle.
Fortnite leakers have reported that two Hunter portals have been added to the game, potentially lining up two new crossovers for Season 5.
We’ve already seen The Mandalorian, God of War, Halo and others appear during the course of the current season – and ShiinaBR has revealed two more encrypted skins are on the way, too.
Limited Time Modes: Air Royale & Floor is Lava
With Fortnite’s 15.40 update, two LTMs are making a return. Both Air Royale and Floor is Lava will be back for everyone to enjoy.
The first was an extremely popular mode upon release in April 2019. Air Royale loads all players into X4 Stormwing’s until there’s just one survivor left.
Meanwhile, Floor is Lava is the polar opposite. Rather than soaring through the skies, players begin on the ground and have to climb their way up to avoid deadly lava.
Fortnite v15.40 bug fixes
Outside of the new content, Fortnite’s latest patch comes with a number of bug fixes as well. The 15.40 update is expected to fix issues across not only the battle royale, but Save The World and Creative modes too.
Below is a full list of every fix that is expected to go live with the latest Fortnite patch.
- Total Bars appearing as “0” in a match.
- Purple XP Coins disappearing when driven through (without granting XP).
- Matchmaking doesn’t start if unreadied player leaves early.
- Phone Booths do not respect island settings when players change Outfits.
Save the World
- Mythic Lead Survivor portraits appear only as silhouettes.
- Locating a Durrr Burger not counting towards the “Locating: Burger Break!” Ventures quest.
That’s everything there is to know about Fortnite’s 15.40 update for the time being. We’ll be sure to keep you updated as further information becomes available.

Fortnite v15.30 update patch notes: New weapons, Mando’s Bounty LTM & more
Fortnite v15.30 update is live, bringing new weapons and a Mando’s Bounty LTM. So, here are some patch notes for the update.
Epic Games have rolled out their v15.30 update for Fortnite, adding three new exotic weapons to the battle royale as well as a new LTM, and a whole host of new cosmetics.
One thing that has always set Fortnite apart from it’s battle royale rivals are the regular updates that Epic Games roll out. They’ve slowed a bit since the move to Fortnite Chapter 2, but the updates are still welcomed.
On February 2nd, the devs rolled out another decently sized update, adding further to the Hunter’s theme has encapsulated Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5.
That includes three new weapons, a Mando’s Bounty LTM, as well as a decent number of bug fixes too. So, without any further ado, let’s get into the changes.
New weapons: Burst Quad Launcher, Frozen & Chug Cannon
Keeping with the growing number of exotic weapons in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3, Epic Games have added three new weapons – the Burst Quad Launcher, Frozen SMG & Chug Cannon.
Starting with the latter there, as the name suggests, the Chug Cannon works like the Bandage Bazooka where teammates can be healed by the weapon.
The Frozen and Burst Quad Launcher are heavy hitters though. The pair of them will deal some nice damage, 35 and 42 respectively, while the Frozen has an alright reload time of just a shade over two seconds.
Mando’s Bounty LTM
The Mandalorian has also recieved some love in this update. Sadly, the previously rumored cosmetics have not been released, but he has got his own limited-time mode.
“The best hunter in the galaxy wants to prove himself—against you. Challenge other players to see who can score credits the fastest,” the description reads. Take out bounty targets for extra credits and eliminate specially-marked hunters for high-tier loot.
“When the Mandalorian enters the match, he will hunt down the player with the most credits. You can get to the top but can you stay there?”
Fortnite v15.30 bug fixes
Finally, the bug fixes. These can be found on Epic’s Trello board before the update goes live, so we can always get a sense of whats being fixed.
This update has a decent amount of changes for each mode for battle royale, Save the World, and Creative – including the return OG Bear vehicles.
Here is the full list of bug fixes coming in v15.30:
- Difficulty editing Banner with a controller.
- Long loading screen after completing a session on PlayStation/Xbox.
- The Child Back Bling blocking vision when players aim down sights.

Mobile Top Issues
- Motion Axis setting stuck on “Roll” on Nintendo Switch.
- RT/LT Triggers on Xbox Elite controller on Android.
