The explosive popularity of Fortnite: Battle Royale has become an inspiration for many of the internet’s creative minds.

Numerous graphic designers and concept artists have put their skill set to use in generating ideas that they hope will someday find its way into the game.

One such designer is Reddit user ‘JJ_Zenyo,’ who has created a concept for adding color edit options to existing Legendary Battle Pass skins in Fortnite.

This falls in line with one of the game’s recent updates, which allowed players to change the color scheme of the Carbide and Omega skins that are unlocked by leveling up the Season 4 Battle Pass.

This concept applies that feature to the Black Knight (Season 2 – Tier 70), Dark Voyager (Season 3 – Tier 70), and the John Wick resembling Reaper skin (Season 3 – Tier 100)

In the provided image, the user generated three different versions of each of those skins, with each one having a different color scheme.

Although developer Epic Games has not shied away from using player created concepts in Fortnite, it would seem very unlikely that they would go back and implement this feature for skins from previous Seasons.

However, the fact that the color edit option has been added for some Season 4 skins could suggest that it would remain as a feature for future Seasons as well.

The search for the next batch of FaZe 5 winners has dwindled down to just 20 finalists, who were unveiled by FaZe Clan on November 29 along with what’s happening next in the process.

Due to its rarity and prestige, FaZe5 always draws a lot of interest as it gives those aspiring to make a career out of gaming a chance to join the world’s biggest esports organization.

Tens of thousands of fans submitted tons of content during the competition’s open entry period, but only 100 survived the first cut when it was announced back on October 23.

Now, that list has been slashed again, down to just 20 – and all of the details for it can be found below:

FaZe 5 top-20 finalists

  • Proze – 22 years old
  • HunterTV – 20
  • Conrady – 20
  • Zenon – 9
  • Lough – 14
  • Zogoro – 22
  • Cannaestia – 35
  • K1ng – 14
  • Montoya Twinz – 20
  • Scope – 21
  • RowdyRogan – 6
  • Flea – 22
  • Faxuty – 22
  • NioRooch – 20
  • Virus – 22
  • Grant the Goat – 17
  • Milliam – 15
  • Stevie – 19
  • Cufboys – 22
  • Absorber – 17

How was the top-20 determined?

There are obviously a lot of factors that go into deciding who gets to move onto the next phase of FaZe5, including in-game skill, mastery of craft, ability to entertain, and wow-factor.

Following the top-100 announcement, those who advanced were given specific challenges to complete, including things like sending in something different than the original submission and making a ‘day in the life’ video.

They were also required to put forth an example of how they’d promote G FUEL, since all five winners will receive a sponsorship with the brand. That was followed by a collaborative challenge, one that paired up similar participants and required them to submit a single piece of content featuring them both in some way.

What’s next in FaZe 5?

Now that the top-20 has been announced, the next step is for them to complete another series of challenges in order to help the org decide who will be crowned a winner.

As things stand, there will not be another in-between cutoff from now until the winners get revealed, so whatever these 20 finalists get asked to do will hold a lot of weight in determining who survives the final stage.

Here’s a reminder of what’s on the line:

  • Nissan Kicks SUV (only for first-place)
  • $20,000 signing bonus
  • G FUEL endorsement contract for 3-6 months

FaZe have not yet announced when the five victors will be unveiled, but if they follow the previous FaZe5, there will be an individual video released for each winner – one per day until all five are made public.
