FaZe Avxry uses Rift-To-Go to pull off crazy Fortnite Victory Royale

One of the most exciting things about Fortnite Battle Royale is the constant evolution and progression of the game, as players like Avery ‘FaZe Avxry’ Lopriore find new and exciting ways to take out enemies and secure wins.

This was on display in full effect recently, when Lopriore used Fortnite’s Rift-To-Go item to pull off one of the smartest and ingenious victories you’re ever likely to see.

The FaZe Clan content creator was playing alongside Exoph, Gank Logan and xd Comikaze, when they found themselves in the final circle, with only one enemy remaining.

With the circle getting smaller by the second, Avxry and his team got above their opponent, when they formulated an idea to eliminate their last remaining adversary without having to fire a bullet.

The team quickly built walls, and began placing spike traps as Avxry eyed up his target. With the traps in position, the FaZe Clan member jumped off the platform, and hurtled towards his enemy below, who was falling through the air to the ground below.  

Avxry had to time his use of the Rift-To-Go perfectly, activating it when he was right beside this enemy, transporting the pair back onto Lopriore’s platform and letting the trap take out his opponent to secure the victory.

“Oh my God!” screamed Avxry, as he got off his chair in disbelief. “He was in mid-air too, you couldn’t make that up. He was falling and I timed it perfectly!”

While this clip is incredible, spare a thought for Avxry’s poor opponent, who likely couldn’t believe the manner in which they lost this match!

Fortnite’s Galactus Nexus War finale event is finally over and it was packed full of a ton of Marvel-themed content. Here’s what went down during the insanely hyped event that closed off Season 4 of the popular game.

For a while now, Epic Games, Marvel, and the Fortnite community have been hyping up a brand new event to close out Chapter 2, Season 4 of Fortnite. Galactus, the Devourer of Worlds, had been slowly inching his way towards the island all season and on December 1, 2020, he finally arrived.

But what happened once he finally showed up to the Fortnite island? Did players have to fight him like we originally thought? Here’s what you need to know about what went down during the Nexus War finale event in case you missed it.

Fortnite Galactus Nexus War finale event recap

Epic Games/Marvel
Galactus wasted no time in destroying the Helicarrier at the start of the event.

All in all, the event itself was pretty short, clocking in at a little over 10 minutes when all was said and done. Still, there was a ton that happened during that span.

Once the in-game timer reached zero, the giant Galactus made his final push to the island. After declaring that he hungered, he destroyed the Helicarrier starting location with ease, sending you and all the other players flying across the sky.

Fortunately, Iron Man-himself flew in as you got close to hitting the ground, handing you a jetpack and telling you that it’s time to stop Galactus. Before you had a chance to do anything, however, the massive villain started consuming Zero Point, which started a “full reality collapse”.

After being transported by Iron Man, you reappeared, in first-person, inside of a Battle Bus decked out in weaponry and explosives. From that point on, your goal was to fly the Buses into Galactus and have him consume them, which ultimately sent him back to “where he came from.”

Epic Games/Marvel
In order to defeat Galactus, players had to drive Battle Buses decked out in weaponry and explosives towards the villain so that he would consume it.

A few Marvel characters even made small appearances, including Thor himself (who was one of the main characters this season) and even Wolverine, who helped you in the fight against Galactus.

After finally destroying a plethora of drones and getting close enough, Galactus got sent back to where he came from, you were teleported away to safety, and the event ended.

Epic Games/Marvel
Players were joined by both Thor and Wolverine during the event, who helped in taking down Galactus.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Marvel if there wasn’t a “post-credits scene.” After the event was over and Galactus got taken care of, players got a shot of Jonesy in his office, who wakes up suddenly before the screen says that the story is to be continued in Season 5.

Re-watch the entire Fortnite Galactus event

Unfortunately, if you were hoping to catch a re-run of the event inside of Fortnite itself, it seems like that’s not going to be possible. Epic Games has confirmed that it was a “one-time-only” event so if you missed out, you won’t be able to experience it again in-game.

However, we did record the entire experience, so can rewatch it as many times as you want:

What’s next?

Now that the Galactus event is over, Epic Games have confirmed that the Season 5 update will be released at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, with the downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans will get to see what the devs have in store for them to enjoy!
