The Twitch Rivals SuperGames wrapped up last night and saw Mike Evans, Ju-Ju Smith-Schuster, Tfue, and Scoped take home first place.

The Twitch Rivals SuperGames followed-up one of the most entertaining Fortnite tournaments in recent memory in the StreamerBowl. This time, instead of only NFL players, the games were open to all professional athletes.

Tfue and Scoped had the god-squad of NFL wide receivers JuJu Smith-Schuster and Mike Evans. Both of the athletes competed in the StreamerBowl and regularly play Fortnite.

Fortnite tournament experience didn’t matter too much in this one, however. The Blitz LTM ruleset – where the storm continuously moves for the entire match – ended up being far more chaotic than most of these players predicted.

In a normal Fortnite game, you’re battling other players with the storm as a secondary fight. This dynamic flipped in the SuperGames tournament. Players were fighting the storm first and foremost, with opponents being a secondary threat.

Once the Fortnite streamers and pros got the hang of the Blitz tournament meta, it became a game of who could fish the most. SypherPK, who lasted an hour and a half in the storm for a YouTube challenge, ended up finishing in 6th place with only 3 kills.

Scoped, Tfue, JuJu, and Mike Evans out-slayed the rest of the lobby with 34 eliminations and a 15-point lead on second place; taking home $150,000 for charity. They were one of the favorites going into the tournament and one of the only top-five teams that you expected to be there.

The tournament was entertaining enough. It was for charity money, so the streamers and pro players weren’t taking it too seriously. It would have been more fun to see these teams battle it out in a real tournament format, but this gave some players more of a chance to win.

The aforementioned team of SypherPK and DrLupo, who finished in sixth place, weren’t on anyone’s big board at the beginning of the tournament.

Sypher is a talented player but DrLupo has been away from the game for quite a while. The former would have been hard-pressed to carry all three teammates against stacked duos like Chap and BenjyFishy, Tfue and Scoped, Ranger and Tocata, etc.

In an environment where teams are colluding with other players and being accused of DDoSing opponents, Twitch Rivals seems to be the most fun and wholesome way to watch competitive Fortnite. Let’s hope that they have another one of these lined up with a more traditional competitive ruleset.

Lazy Lake Floating Ring locations for Fortnite Week 3 challenges

How to collect floating rings at Lazy Lake for the Season 3 Week 3 challenges.

The Fortnite Season 3 Week 3 challenges are here, which means we’re getting closer and closer to unlocking the second half of the Season 3 Battle Pass. Most of the challenges have been relatively easy this season, with only one weekly challenge requiring us to search in a particular area.

Last week we were looking around The Yacht. This week we’re venturing across the map over to Lazy Lake, where we’ll need to collect floating rings.

These four rings are scattered around Lazy Lake, making it difficult to complete this challenge in one shot – at least, if you’re doing it in a regular Battle Royale match.

As always, we recommend opting for Team Rumble. It makes things easier, and you may even be able to finish your eliminations challenge from last week if you haven’t already. Here’s a map of all of the Floating Ring locations at Lazy Lake:

The most obvious ring is located next to the gas station. You should be able to jump on an umbrella to grab it. After that, make your way to the intersection and look on top of the tree. The third ring is in the street at the entrance to Lazy, and the final ring is in between the towers of the No Sweat Insurance building.

Here’s a video from HarryNinetyFour that shows you exactly where you’ll need to visit.

You can take a look at the full list of challenges here, but the rest of them are easy enough to complete on your own. You may be sitting in the cornfield at Frenzy for a while, but that comes with the territory.

Lazy Lake fireworks location for Fortnite Captain America challenge

Published

When the Fortnite v13.20 patch released, Epic revealed that they’d be bringing a special hero to the Item Shop for the 4th of July. That hero was later revealed to be none other than Captain America – one of the core Avengers who we never saw during the initial Marvel crossover events.

Captain America is, reportedly, set to hit the Item Shop within the next rotation. He should be available when the Item Shop resets at 8 PM EST on July 2. We’re only hours away from having Cap in our locker, and he’ll probably be one of the most popular skins for the next week.

As you can see, there have already been plenty of official teasers for Captain America, but one of them went under the radar. When the Week 3 Challenges went live, Epic added a daily challenge that requires you to light fireworks around Lazy Lake. These fireworks explode to show the Captain America shield.

There are six firework locations surrounding this POI, but you only need five to complete the challenge. You can easily finish this challenge in a single game of Team Rumble once you know where to look. Here are all of the firework locations.

This challenge rewards players with 14,000 XP as it’s one of the golden daily challenges rather than a weekly challenge. That isn’t a ton of experience, but it’s a healthy reward for a challenge that will only take a few minuted to complete. Now, all that’s left is to see how the new Fortnite Captain America skin looks!

This concept brings grilling to Fortnite in time for summer

This thematic addition to Fortnite Season 3 is perfect for Summer Splash.

Fortnite Season 3 has put a new emphasis on food. Vegetable boxes spawn all across the map while players farm for cabbage and corn as a new way to heal. Most players are fans of this change. The more healing items in the game, the better.

Why stop there? Why not allow us to cook our food for additional HP? Well, one Fortnite player made a concept that allows us to do just that. Reddit user u/MapleSmoothie created a Hot Dog concept. You can find them in fridges and eat them raw, or grill them for greater healing power.

This concept, as its creator points out, would be a perfect addition to the Summer Splash event. Grilling and summertime go hand in hand, and Epic even have an existing emote to correspond with the mechanic.

We don’t need to stop with hot dogs, either. Epic could allow us to grill corn and add other meats like burgers and sausages. Some of them could even grant shields, allowing you to carry some food versions of Minis and Big Pots.

It’s probably too late for Epic to add this to Season 3. There’s a chance that we could see it next year, however. Epic have always welcomed community concepts with game mechanics and skins. This one would be a small, yet thematic addition that could bring a new element into the game.
