Atlantis Mitro and Atlantis Magin have taken home the $60,000 first prize by winning Week Three Day Two of the Fortnite Summer Skirmish tournament.

They were the first team to 13 points, thanks to Victory Royales in Matches 8 and 9. They were followed by Fwexy and Pate1k of Main with 12 points and Greyfox and Mouz Moeps finished third with 10.

In order to best understand the recap of this tournament, make sure to brush up on the scoring format:

The first Duos team to reach 13 points is the winner. Victory Royales and Eliminations in this competition will be scored to determine placement at the end of the event. The top 20 teams at the end of the Summer Skirmish will be awarded.

Victory Royale: +4 Points
5 or more Eliminations: +2 Points
Most Eliminations (per match): $6500

Much like yesterday, the matches were close and teams struggled to score points and pull away from the pack to get 13 points quickly. Those who got close to 13 would be hunted first in an attempt to extend the tournament.

After six matches, Fwexy and Pate1k were on top with 10 points, but the field narrowed as points were hard to come by. Mitro and Magin hung around the top 5 with 6 points, though they did not score for a few matches. Ref7ection and H3X were the only team in the top 5 to score in match six, gaining two points to earn a three way tie for second place at 8 points.

Nyx and Swayzen won match six and the four points were enough to launch them from the bottom of the standings to the top 10.

Fwexy and Pate1k were frozen at 10 points for matches seven and eight, allowing Mitro and Magin to tie them for first after winning match 8.

The ninth match was all they would need, grabbing another Victory Royale for back to back wins to hit 14 points.

How to do secret Cleanse Tanks & Escape Fortnite Season 4 challenges

Fortnite Season 4 might be new, but an old enemy, the infamous gnome, is up to his usual antics. This means there are more secret challenges to complete. Here’s how to do them.

Fortnite’s secret challenges might be a small addition, but they’re welcome ones that keep players on their toes. It’s always nice to get one-up on that pesky gnome, but more importantly, players receive a decent amount of experience for completing them.

Fortnite Season 4 introduced a lot of new things, but it also added two new more secret challenges. They offer a modest 10,000 experience each, which makes them a nice way to boost your level. 

If you want to complete them but aren’t willing to invest the time and patience to figure it all out, we’ve got you covered.

Fortnite Season 4’s Secret Challenges all revolve around this pesky gnome.

Cleanse Tanks

The first challenge is located in Slurpy Swamp, and it’s very easy to do. 

  • Naturally, the first step is to make your way over to Slurpy Swamp.
  • Once you’re there, make your way to the main building and look for the two large tanks lying around.
  • You’ll notice that their tops are missing, which is intentional.
  • Jump inside and take a dip to cleanse them. It’s as simple as that.

Escape

Luckily, the second challenge is in Slurpy Swamp as well. However, it’s a little trickier to spot than the first.

  • First, head to the northern side of the main building. It’s the same one you were in for the previous challenge.
  • Next, look for a wall with a conveniently-placed hole.
  • The insufferable gnome who has been playing games with us this whole time will be hidden inside. 
  • To draw him out, all you need to do is walk up towards him. If you get close enough, he’ll panic and launch himself into the distance.

That’s all there is to it. If you managed to complete them both, you’ll find yourself 20,000 experience points closer to a higher level.

Many players tend to stumble upon these challenges and finish them without even realizing it. However, others aren’t so lucky, and while they aren’t necessarily hard to do, they can be a pain to find.

Who knows where we’ll run into that pesky gnome next, but it’s inevitable that we will again in when the next series of challenges have been released.

Until then, you might want to go back and finish any of the others you’ve missed.
