Week 3 of Friday Fortnite will take place on June 28 where Daniel ‘Keemstar’ Keem, FaZe Clan, and UMG will be giving away $10,000 to the top team with another $10,000 being given away in a commemorative way.
Thanks to FaZe Clan and one of it’s founders Ricky ‘FaZe Banks’, Friday Fortnite was given a second chance due to their $60,000 donation to Friday Fortnite.
Friday Fortnite is an event held by Keemstar and UMG where the top streamers and celebrities fight against an entire lobby of randoms to see who can secure the most eliminations.
The format is quite fun to watch as the tournament is much more relaxed, but also features entertaining celebrities like Lebron James Jr., Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson, and Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins.
Who is participating?
Friday Fortnite isn’t open to anybody, as only the top streamers and personalities are allowed to participate. That means that the event is packed with Twitch and Youtube personalities combined with celebrities.
During Week 3, Lebron James’ oldest son, Lebron James Jr., will be teaming up with FaZe Clan’s Josue ‘Sway’.https://twitter.com/KEEMSTAR/status/1143939696269115393
Other notable names who will be participating this week are Team SoloMid’s Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani, Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan, and Tim ‘Timthetatman’ Betar.
When does it start?
Friday Fortnite is expected to begin on Friday, June 28 at around 4 pm ET / 1 PM PT. The event has typically lasted several hours and not ending until later hours in the night.
If you want to watch the official stream by UMG you can tune into their channel on Twitch, or check out individual streamer’s channels as they always have a different perspective than the casters.
Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore began their rise to Fortnite fame with Friday Fortnite back in 2018, so there might be a new star duo on the rise!
What is the format?
Friday Fortnite features a double elimination bracket that has the winner of the top bracket facing off against the loser bracket finalist.
Each round has two different duos teaming up into a squad match where they both try to get the most amount of eliminations.
The teams have two games to get the highest amount of eliminations before advancing.
Keemstar and UMG’s event does have a few rules for competitors to follow:
- No sabotaging builds
- No sabotaging players by causing missed shots, misplaced builds, etc.
- No Boogie Bombing opponents
One of the most strict rules in Friday Fortnite is using the Boogie Bomb against opponents, which is followed by an immediate disqualification.
What is the prize pool?
The top team at the end of the event will earn $10,000, which is to be split between the winning duo.
An extra $10,000 is been put aside to purchase 30 Nintendo Switches to donate to viewers of the event in honor of late YouTuber Etika.
Random viewers will be selected from UMG’s chat along with participating streamers, so be sure to interact for a chance to win a brand new Nintendo Switch.

The winners will be announced later during UMG’s Friday Fortnite stream, and will probably be contacted through social media. Since the event takes several hours and there are 30 winners, contacting each person could take some time.
Fortnite leaks reveal free Major Mancake skin coming in Chapter 3 Season 3
Fortnite leakers have just discovered a new Mancake skin in the files called Major Mancake that should be released in Chapter 3 Season 3.
Mancake, who is literally a man with a pancake head, is one of the most popular Fortnite characters. He is about to get a ‘Major’ upgrade in Chapter 3 Season 3.
Mancake and his unreal adventures in Butter Barn are quite famous among Fortnite players. The character has been on the island since Chapter 2 Season 5 and has played a significant role in the storyline repeatedly.
Here’s a preview of the upcoming Major Mancake skin in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3.
How to get Major Mancake skin in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3
To be fair, the Major Mancake skin isn’t a noteworthy upgrade to the original skin. There are minor differences in the the outfit’s color scheme and the head is now more pancake-like.
Here’s a comparison between the original Mancake skin and the leaked Major Mancake skin:
The decrypted Major Mancake set also has the following items:
- Stacked! spray
- Sweet Clementine pickaxe
- Stacked with Love emoticon
- Waffler backbling
Leakers have reported that the emoticon and the spray do not have a source, which hints at Major Mancake being a promotional cosmetic.
There will be five Crown Clash challenges and loopers will have to play a total of 100 Fall Guys shows to avail of all five free rewards.
Why Major Mancake could be a free Fortnite x Fall Guys reward
Leakers have discovered that the upcoming Fall Guys challenge will have five stages and the Major Mancake set comprises five cosmetics. These skins, sprays, and emoticons do not have Item Shop assets, and the pickaxe appears to have a Promo source.
Having said that, it doesn’t make a lot of sense for none of the Fall Guys x Fortnite rewards to be Fall Guys themed. Mancake is an original Fortnite character and has no relation with Mediatonic’s Battle Royale game.
We’ll make sure to update this article when Epic Games officially reveals Major Mancake and the procedure to get the skin.
Fortnite Reality Tree is the ‘next threat’ according to NPCs
Fortnite Season 3 is all about the Reality Tree and its growing roots. Here’s why loopers should be worried about this mysterious flora.
Fortnite players seem delighted with the frequent map changes in Chapter 3 Season 3. The Reality Tree is growing at an unprecedented rate and this is a matter of concern for the residents of the island.
Despite being a Battle Royale title, Fortnite maintains an overly-complicated storyline that includes characters from Marvel, DC, Star Wars, and whatnot. Basically, the Zero Point controls everything, and keeping it stable is the key to normalcy.
Loopers just witnessed a nerve-wracking war between the Imagined Order and The Seven in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2. The current season might have a Vibin’ theme, but from the looks of it, the party will soon come to an end.
The Scientist expresses concerns regarding Reality Tree in Fortnite Vibin’ quests
Fortnite v21.10 introduced a bunch of Vibin’ quests in which players help The Scientist in studying the Reality Tree. The member of The Seven is terrified about the Zero Point being exposed. Accordingly, he’s trying to warn us that the new flora on the island is a major threat to reality.
Some NPCs (non-playable characters) on the island have similar thoughts:
- Kyle– You were right. Some of these trees…I’ve never seen em’ before.
- Haven when she talks to The Foundation- Something’s not right.
- Haven when she talks to The Scientist- Whatever experiments you’re doing, run them faster. We’re in trouble.
- The Origin when he interacts with The Imagined- Any activity on the perimeter? Stay vigilant
- The Order when she talks to The Origin- Any news? Are we in the clear?
- The Scientist when he is visited by The Origin- Our next threat won’t be flying in on an airship.
- The Scientist when he interacts with The Paradigm- These calculations aren’t looking good.
- The Paradigm when she is visited by The Scientist- If you’re saying something’s up, I believe you.
It is evident that members of The Seven have discovered something unusual. Even though they’ve successfully eradicated the Imagined Order (for how long, though?), a new threat has emerged in the form of the Reality Tree.
Who controls the Reality Tree in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3?
Fan theories suggest that a character named Bloomwatcher (a name given and widely accepted by the community) is controlling Reality Tree. She appeared in this season’s story trailer for a second, and one of the skin surveys teased her as well.
The Reality Tree and the brand-new mushroom-themed biome are hoaxes. Loopers are misled to think that they’ve finally achieved freedom, as the growth of Reality roots is causing unusual events.
The Reality Tree’s spread is similar to the island’s contamination by the cubes in Chapter 2 Season 8. Leaks have suggested that in the upcoming weeks, the roots will reach Temple Bloom, Condo Canyon, Daily Bugle, and other prominent locations.

At the same time, Darth Vader is roaming in his shuttle to restore a relic that accidentally reached the island. Loopers can expect more clarity about these storyline developments with the v21.20 update on July 5, 2022.
Subway Surfers officially reacts to crazy Fortnite collab concept
A handful of notable franchises are yet to collaborate with Fortnite including Subway Surfers. Here’s why this could finally happen.
Fortnite players love coming up with concepts, especially related to crossovers. A Subway Surfers concept went viral recently and it was good enough to catch the attention of the developers.
It wouldn’t be an overstatement to say that Subway Surfers is one of the most ground-breaking games in history. It popularized the endless runner genre and has been downloaded by literally billions of players.
Crossovers now define Fortnite, and here’s why a collaboration with Subway Surfers could be closer than ever.
Subway Surfers’ concept imagines Tricky as a Fortnite skin
Subway Surfers has introduced a wide range of characters since its launch, and fans love them all for unique reasons. As it turns out, Fortnite artist Anhel admires Tricky and accordingly, he turned her into a skin.
Anhel’s Fortnite x Subway Surfers bundle included these items:
- Tricky’s outfit
- Subway Surfers spray
- 1500 V-Bucks
- Subway Surfers’ Jetpack back bling
- Subway Surfers’ theme song album
To be fair, this is a flawless bundle for any Subway Surfers fan. The mobile game has many elements that can be incorporated into Fortnite, and an official crossover is almost guaranteed to be a massive hit.
Subway Surfers’ official Twitter account reacted to the aforementioned concept and even tagged Fortnite asking about a collaboration. Naturally, this was enough to ignite the hopes of countless fans who love both franchises.
Subway Surfers’ policeman catches Jake with Fortnite’s builds in fan-made clip
It is evident that the Fortnite community is eagerly awaiting a Subway Surfers’ collab. Popular modder Brux uploaded a clip on YouTube that perfectly blended both the games and it already has over 250k views.
Brux somehow gave the policeman building and editing abilities who then used them to catch Jake within 10 seconds. To say the least, it was the perfect representation of a Fortnite sweat.
Brux is clearly one of the most talented modders out there. It is safe to assume that such content will become more common with Creative 2.0 which should be available before 2023.
Now that Subway Surfers has officially reacted to concepts, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the collaboration with Fortnite takes place soon. As of now, the Fall Guys collaboration has been leaked and loopers can look forward to completing Crown Clash challenges for free rewards.
