With a whopping 48 eliminations, the Fortnite Battle Royale Duos PC world record has been broken again by Bawx and Colson.

The previous record of 46 eliminations probably looked untouchable to a lot of players but these two players managed to top it by two, bringing the new record to 48.

For those keeping score at home, that’s nearly half the lobby of a match, which is no small feat. Bawx provided a video of the match from his partner Colson’s perspective.

It’s going to be hard to top this

With 48 eliminations, it’s going to take a gargantuan effort by another team to see if they can best this.

What’s even more impressive is this record came after the vaulting of the Pump Shotgun, meaning the two players didn’t have it to rely on.

One thing that is missing is Bawx’s perspective, something that he says was corrupted which is why the video from his partner’s view was provided.

Bawx finished with 23 eliminations while Colson had 25, but the two didn’t even appear aware that a record had been broken when they set it, according to the description of the YouTube video.

To top it all off, the pair came away with the Victory Royale, something that isn’t required to break records, but it certainly helps.

Epic GamesThis elimination record is going to be tough to beat.

We’ve seen more eliminations by a Duo before, as the records on PC and console are 52 and 51 respectively, but those came in the Squads playlist. Bawx and Colson set the record for most eliminations in the Duos playlist on PC.

You can stay up to date on all of the records by visiting our Fortnite world records hub, which is always being updated to feature all of the current world records.

It’s going be interesting to see records being broken going forward with the vaulting of the Pump Shotgun and the removal of siphon from the normal lobbies.

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.

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.
