Despite recently leaving the organization, Fortnite pro Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore has praised FaZe Clan for handing their new recruits “great contracts” after the org announced the capture of Kyle ‘Mongraal‘ Jackson from Team Secret.

Back in May 2019, Cloak’s long-term teammate and friend Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney shocked the world when he revealed he would be suing the organization over an “oppressive contract”, which instantly sparked concern that Lepore was on a similar deal.

Eventually, FaZe Clan released Cloak into ‘restricted free agency’, retaining his player rights should he eventually decide to join another team, but allowing him to focus on building his brand without competing under their banner.

FAZE CLANTfue and Cloak both wanted out of FaZe Clan.

Since then, FaZe have continued to bolster their competitive Fortnite ranks, most recently signing one of the world’s top players in Kyle ‘Mongraal’ Jackson who was transferred from Team Secret.

He joins a star-studded line up of players who have qualified on multiple occasions for the upcoming $30m Fortnite World Cup, and Cloak believes all of the new recruits will be on “great contracts”.

“Why would I be mad at Mongraal?” he asked. “He’s probably on a great contract. Every single person that has signed for FaZe recently is on an amazing contract.”

Furthermore, the 24-year-old singled out co-owner Ricky ‘Banks’ Banks for praise and stated he was the reason that FaZe had turned things around after the recent controversy.

He said: “Shout out to Banks for making that happen”.

YT:TFUECloak believes Banks was a key factor in FaZe’s turnaround.

Given Mongraal’s stature in competitive Fortnite, it’s more than likely that his contract will be extremely lucrative as his arrival boosts the org’s chances of having a winner in the Fortnite World Cup. 

The tournament takes place on July 26-28 in New York City, with the Brit qualified for both the solo and event, he must best former FaZe star Tfue in order to take home the $3 million grand prize.

Fortnite’s Season 5 Week 8 challenges are here, and we’ve got all the information you need to complete them all in no time, with some handy tips along the way.

We’re now halfway through Season 5 of Epic Games’ hit battle royale Fortnite, and the weekly challenges just keep on coming to help players earn that all-important XP to level up their Battle Pass.

The introduction of Predator to the island may be taking everyone’s attention right now, but you’ll still want to make time for the Week 8 challenges as they’ll need to be completed by Thursday, January 28.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 8 brings fresh challenges to the mix.

This week features a farming theme, as three of the challenges will require players to visit either a Farm or a Farmers Market on the map. Aside from those, there are some more standard quests like dealing Pistol damage and collecting Gold Bars.

Without further ado, here are the seven Epic quests you’ll need to complete this week, as well as the single Legendary quest that’ll earn you a significant chunk of XP.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 8 Quests

  • Destroy apple and tomato produce boxes at The Orchard Farmers Market (3)
  • Drive a car through the corn field at Steel Farm (1)
  • Deliver a truck to Sunflower’s Farm (1)
  • Pistol Damage (250)
  • Collect Gold Bars (500)
  • Blow up a gas pump (1)
  • Distance traveled Gliding (3,500)

Let’s start with the basic ones: You’ll gain Gliding distance every time you play a match and jump from the Battle Bus. Similarly, you’ll collect Gold Bars in everyday play, but you can speed this one along by searching tills, safes, and destroying washing machines.

There’s new Quests, Bounties and other things for Tfue to explore.

Pistol damage is easy, as you’ll simply need to find a Pistol (they’re very common) and shoot other players. You may find it easier to go after IO Guards, as their aim isn’t great, and remember that using a rarer Pistol will deal more damage.

Blowing up a gas pump should be as simple as visiting a gas station and shooting one of the gas pumps out the front until they explode. We’ll have guides for the Farm challenges when they go live, so be sure to check back then.

As always, completing each of these challenges will bag you a sweet 20,000 XP, meaning there’s a total of 140,000 XP to be earned. And that’s not even including this week’s Legendary quest.

  • Eat Fish (10/20/30/40/50)

To complete the Week 8 Legendary quest, you’ll need to eat fish. You can do this by fishing with a Rod or Harpoon Gun, or by using explosives such as Grenades or a Motorboat’s missiles to blow them up.

Simple, right? Well, there are multiple tiers to this challenge, and if you want to complete them all and get yourself a whopping 55,500 XP you’ll need to eat a grand total of 50 fish.

You’ll need to get fishing if you want to complete the Week 8 Legendary quest.

While finding 50 fish might take you a while, it should be a lot easier to complete than last week’s Legendary challenge, which had some players calling for “trash” vehicle challenges to be removed from the game.

Remember, you’ll have until Thursday, January 28, 2021, to complete all of these weekly challenges before they disappear when Week 9 rolls around.
