How to watch Friday Fortnite feat. Lebron James Jr – Players, format, and schedule

Published

on

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’.

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.

Want to try out some of the Fortnite Chapter 2 Zone Wars maps? Take a look at these five options here.

Zone Wars is one of the most popular Creative Mode map genres in Fortnite – so much so that Epic included a Zone Wars playlist during Chapter 2.

We probably won’t see another official Zone Wars lineup while Chapter 2 is still fresh, but here are five updated map codes for some of the best Fortnite Chapter 2 Zone Wars maps for your Playground Fill matches.

Make sure to get to the Hub as fast as you can so you can avoid the Red vs. Blue battle.

Realistic Solos (XA)(Pack 1): 1234-0621-9943

Realistic Solos (XA)(Pack 1) by Prettyboy may not have “zone wars” in the name, but it is an authentic competitive experience that can get intense quickly. Two to 16 players spawn in random locations across various well-crafted maps. With randomized loadouts, players race to be the last one standing.

Nuketown 2025 Zone Wars: 1149-4422-7888

Nuketown 2025 zone wars by Clapzfn is more of a novelty than anything. It’s very cool to revisit this highly detailed recreation of a Call of Duty classic. Some of the buildings have invisible barriers at the top, and the storm always pushes to the center of the map. Regardless, it’s a ton of fun to be the last player standing in Nuke Town.

Desert Zone Wars Chapter 2: 1811-9621-1739

Those who have been playing zone wars maps for a long time are probably familiar with Jotapegame’s desert zone wars maps. However, this is the latest installment in the series that incorporates the changes made in Chapter 2. Enjoy the classic desert-themed zone wars with modern weapons and items.

Area 51 Alien Zone Wars: 9843-7754-8806

Area 51 Zone Wars by Dropnite is one of the most aesthetically pleasing zone wars maps available. From the way it spawns players in to all of the decorative pieces, it really makes you feel like you’re in Area 51. It also offers a fantastic competitive experience that’s sure to get players ready for the final moments of FNCS tournaments.

50 Player Zonewars: 6167-1882-6710

50 Player Zonewars is one of the most intense creative maps once the lobby is full. The loot pool changes regularly to match Arena Mode, and there are plenty of different maps. For the higher skill tourneys that have 50 or more people in the endgame, this mode is perfect for realistic practice.

Leave us some codes in the comments if we missed your favorite Fortnite Chapter 2 Zone Wars maps!

Prop Hunt has long been part of collective gaming culture. The mode has finally arrived in Fortnite and it looks to be a whole lot of fun!

Due to some mishaps on the part of Epic, Fortnite has been suffering some negative strides. In order to switch things back around, the devs need a successive streak of victories.

Prop Hunt has been a much asked for ‘just for fun’ mode and Epic is now delivering. This, along with great v9.30 changes, could really bring back a lot of excitement for Fortnite!

Prop Hunt playable now in Fortnite

Fortnite’s Creative mode is a stirring pot of creative genius and remarkable talents. For the lucky few chosen by Epic, the creations made in Creative become legendary adventures played by millions.

Prop Hunt has been brought to life by a team of talented Creative creators. The team at StrayKite managed to create a replica of the classic experience that plays like a dream.

The mode is available to play now in Creative & Playground lobbies.

The basic rules of Prop Hunt are as follows:

  • Props are given a set amount of time to hide before Seekers try to find them
  • Each Prop can switch between differing objects a certain amount of times
  • Seekers try to find all the Props before the time limit is reached. If they manage to do so, the Seekers win.
  • If all Props are not found, the Props win.

Epic Games has not given any end-date for the Prop Hunt island feature, but the prop hunt mode can always be played from here on out. This can be done by using the Island Code provided by Epic (6069-9263-9110).

Using the Creative mode’s configuration settings, you can also create custom Prop Hunt game types. This includes longer Seeker time limits, stricter win conditions, banned props, and more. More options will be added for the mode in the future.

Fortnite Battle Lab mode removed in latest update (Updated May 4)

Fortnite’s Battle Lab mode has disappeared from the mode select screen and Epic Games has made no comment on where the mode went.

Fortnite’s Battle Lab mode has been disabled in the v16.30 patch, and fans aren’t happy with its removal.

UPDATE: The Battle Labs mode has been turned back on as of May 4th, 2021.

Battle Lab was added in December of 2019 close to the start of Fortnite Chapter 2. This core game mode replaced the Playground mode which allowed players to explore The Island alone or with friends.

While Playground was mostly a vanilla battle royale experience, Battle Lab allowed players to set their own rules and change loot pools. Video editors would use Battle Lab to produce high-quality content, and it also allowed younger players to enjoy the game without allowing them to play with strangers.

Fortnite Mode Select Screen

However, Fortnite’s Battle Lab mode has seemingly disappeared in the latest update without any word from Fortnite or Epic Games. This has led to an outcry from fans on Twitter who are asking for the game mode to be reinstated.

Downtime for the Fortnite v16.30 started at 4 a.m. EST on April 27, and shortly after the servers came back online players started to notice Battle Lab was missing. The Fortnite Status Twitter made various posts noting the changes made in the update, but Battle Lab wasn’t mentioned a single time.

Over the past 24 hours, Fortnite Status has also acknowledged various bug fixes and server issues. While it remains unknown whether Fortnite’s Battle Lab mode was removed by accident, the lack of acknowledgment makes it seem as if it were removed intentionally.

The removal of Battle Lab won’t affect the majority of Fortnite’s player base, it will have an impact on content creators. As stated by Frenzy2nd on Twitter, it would be ideal for Fortnite to let players know what its plans are for the future of Battle Lab.

In the meantime, there are still plenty of modes available for players to enjoy. These include the new Free For All Arena mode, One Shot duos, and an assortment of featured Creative modes. Stay tuned for the latest information regarding Fortnite’s Battle Lab mode.
