The Fortnite world record for most eliminations found by a trio in a squad match has been smashed – over six months since it was originally set.

While Fortnite players are always searching for eliminations to secure victory royales on the popular battle royale title, an especially impressive performance can sometimes secure you a place in the history books.

That has happened for a trio of players, who recently uploaded an incredible video that saw them demolish the Trios vs Squads world record that has stood since September 2018.

Fortnite’s trios world record has stood for other six months.

What is the new Fortnite ‘trios vs squads’ world record?

The new Fortnite ‘Trios vs Squads’ world record now sits at 56 eliminations, an incredible number considering that the team played with a one person disadvantage for the entirety of the game.

The record appears to be set by a Japanese trio, with the team named Mauchaso, Ac.Qjac and kyaroninzin.

This record of 56 defeats the old record by three, which was set by French professional Fortnite players NokSs, XMS and Renik since September.

Nokss was part of the trio that held the Fortnite world record since September 2018.

How did they break the record?

To set records like this, teams must split and try to take down opponents solo, and thats exactly what Mauchaso, Ac.Qjac and kyaroninzin did, with the former heading straight to Retail Row in the hunt for kills.

From there, he ended up rotating down to Paradise Palms, then across the map to the game’s final circle near Happy Hamlet, where he reunited with his teammates in the snowy biome to the southwest.

The kill breakdown for the players was equally impressive, with all three hitting double figures with ease. The kills recorded by each player are as follows:

  1. kyaroninzin – 26 eliminations
  2. Mauchaso – 16 eliminations
  3. Ac.Qjac – 14 eliminations

Mauchaso, Ac.Qjac and kyaroninzin now join the impressive ranks of other world record holders who have shown their amazing skills to claim the top spot in their spespective categories. You can see a full list on our Fortnite world records hub.

The impressive performance now thrusts them to the top of the world records list, but it’s unlikely they will be able to hold their crown without any challenges from other Fortnite trios.

Where to find Fortnite Iron Man jetpacks

After many long months, the fan-favorite jetpack has finally been re-added to Fortnite. This time however it’s straight from Iron Man, due to the special Marvel-themed season. Here’s a simple guide for how you can get your hands on the item.

One of the more interesting and least-hated items added to Fortnite since its launch is the jetpack. After being available in normal modes for a while, the item quickly became a fan-favorite, and getting one was pretty much required if you wanted to stand a chance in the final couple circles.

Epic Games decided to remove the item back in 2018 and instead, limited it to a number of different LTMs. Now, it seems like the developer has at least temporarily reversed course, as the item is now spawning in the base game again with a Marvel-themed twist.

The new jetpack operates exactly the same as the old item that was removed from Fortnite a while ago.

What is the Iron Man jetpack?

From everything we’ve seen, it appears as if the Iron Man jetpack operates basically the same way the older jetpack did back in 2018, and that this new item is basically just a simple cosmetic re-skin.

The jetpack takes the slot of one of your items on the bottom right-hand side of the screen. If you want to use it though, you don’t have to have the item selected. All you need to do is jump and then hold down the jump button in order to raise yourself into the air, allowing you to use your weapons. Operation, as expected, is fairly simple.

The Iron Man jetpack can be found through the map as floor loot.

Where can I find the Iron Man jetpack?

Apparently, the only place to find the Iron Man jetpack is as floor loot appearing randomly around the map for the moment. There doesn’t appear to be any specific, sure-fire, place to find it, so you’ll just have to keep looking until it pops up.

The item also doesn’t seem to show up from chests, which means it’s even harder to find than some weapons and other items. Of course, this could all change as time goes on.

It’s currently unknown how long the item will be in the game for, although logic would dictate that the longest it would be available would be the end of the current season given its Marvel theme.
