The Celebrity Pro-Am competition at the Fortnite World Cup wrapped up on July 26, with Team Solary pro player Karim ‘Airwaks’ Benghalia and popular DJ RL Grime finishing in first place for the second time in a row.

As with the previous two Pro-Am competitions, the World Cup edition featured some of the biggest content creators in the Fortnite community.

Paired with these 50 streamers and YouTubers were 50 well-known athletes, musicians, actors, and other celebrities who have at least a mild interest in the popular battle royale title.

The format of the competition was simple, four matches were played, with the duos earning points each match based on their number of eliminations and placement.

The overall prize pool of $3 million was split according to the final placements, with all of the money earned going to the charities of the players’ choices.

This was the second time that the duo of Airwaks and RL Grime took home the championship trophy at a Pro-Am event, having also claimed victory at the same competition during last month’s Summer Block Party in Los Angeles.

Below, you can find a full recap and highlights for all four matches, followed by the final placements and the prize split. 

Game 1 – SinoOoh steals the show

With all of the players and their duos looking to get off to a good start in the first match, it was Korean pro Fortnite player Sino0h and Oh.King who took the cake early on.

Their Victory Royale and 13 eliminations, 12 of which came from the Korean pro, were good enough to secure them a nice 23 point haul.

Game 2 – Tfue and Cloak fall just short

The second match was a strong opportunity for Fortnite heavyweights Tfue and Cloak to land a thick amount of points, but they were both outlasted by YouTuber Jacob and his actress duo Clare Grant.

The pair got the Victory Royale to go along wit six eliminations, all from the Polish Fortnite star, leaving Cloak and Tfue to finish second and third respectively. 

Game 3 – Cloak forced into second place again

For the second straight match, Cloak found himself on the verge of finally grabbing that elusive Victory Royale, and for the second straight match, he fell just short.

This time, it was YouTuber Jelty and Timbers Esports CEO Gaborever who clinched the first place finish, to go along with their five eliminations for a 15 points haul. 

Game 4 – Marksman and JT Brown clutch up

With everything still to play for in the fourth and final game, the endgame turned out to be a crowded affair, with still a lot of teams left alive in the final stages of the match. 

The Victory Royale ended up going to Twitch streamer Marksman and JT Brown, who also got 12 eliminations to boost themselves into the sixth spot for the final standings.

With all four matches in the book, here are the final placements for the Fortnite World Cup Celebrity Pro-Am, along with each duo’s split of the $3 million prize pool that will be going to the charity of their choice. 

Remember, this completes only day one of the three days of festivities at the Fortnite World Cup. There is still a Duos event to be played on July 27 and a Solos tournament on July 28, with the collective prize pool between the two competitions sitting at an incredible $30 million.

Fortnite Season 4 is now entering its final week, but before it wraps up, you’ve got one last batch of Challenges to get through in order to claim some huge last-minute experience.

After what feels like forever, the current Marvel-themed takeover is about to reach its conclusion. Galactus is hurtling towards the map, and the Nexus War is finally set for a major in-game event on December 1.

If you’re worried that you might not have time to fill out your Battle Pass before then, fear not. Epic Games has come through with more XP boosts this week than any week prior. You’ll be able to catch up and finish things off in no time thanks to this week’s XP Xtravaganza Challenges.

From where you’ll need to go and what you’ll need to do, we’ve got everything broken down. Here’s how you can complete Week 14’s XP offerings.

There are a whopping 12 Challenges to get through this week, plenty to keep you busy. Many of these can be kept in the back of your mind while you focus on some of the more tricky ones. However, there’s nothing too complex here, so you should be able to get them all done in barely a few hours of playing.

Some Challenges ask you to use certain weapons and items. Be sure to track down Assault Rifles and Boogie Bombs in every game while keeping an eye out for vehicles as well.

One unique task requires you to keep your full health bar intact along with full shields. Obviously, this might need you to camp things out and play it safe. Eight minutes is the set time so try to find a safe spot, barricade yourself in, and wait this one through.

For more casual Challenges like fishing from a motorboat or riding zip lines to and from Upstate New York, your best bet could be to drop into some Team Rumble. Trying these in the standard Battle Royale playlists might prove frustrating. The full list of Week 14 Challenges can be found below.
