Week seven of the $10,000 Friday Fortnite competition wrapped up on August 2, with FaZe Clan's Nate Hill and Funk finishing in first place.

For the second time in three tournaments, FaZe Clan's Fortnite World Cup qualifying duo of Nate Hill and Funk have won Friday Fortnite, with this latest tournament being the third straight in which they made it to the grand final.

Below, you can find everything you need to know about today's tournament, including a recap of the grand final, highlights of top plays, the final placements, a complete bracket, and more. 


Grand Final recap and highlights

Having won the Winners Bracket, Nate Hill and Funk came into the grand final knowing they needed to only win one match, while their Team SoloMid opponents Myth and Zexrow had to win two consecutive. 

The first map started off in favor of FaZe, who played a very balanced game to take a 16-10 elimination lead going into map two.

Nate Hill and Funk were two of six players who represented FaZe Clan at the Fortnite World Cup.

Things got really interesting in the second map, as both Nate Hill and Funk went down towards the middle of the match, having just a four kill advantage at that point. 

With Zexrow getting taken out shortly afterwards, Myth was the only one of the four left alive, and had to try and get four eliminations to tie things up, and five to reset the bracket and force a second, winner-takes-all match. 

Unfortunately, a calculated risk went south for the TSM star, as he was taken out before he could get any kills, giving the FaZe pair their second Friday Fortnite victory as a duo.

How does Friday Fortnite work?

Friday Fortnite is a weekly tournament that brings together some of the biggest content creators and pro players of the online gaming community, sometimes even featuring celebrities and athletes.

The tournament is double-elimination, and uses the exciting 'total of two' and 'bot race' format. In each round, the teams that get matched up queue into a public Squads lobby together, where they try to get as many eliminations as possible.

After two Squads matches, the team with the most combined eliminations gets to advance, while a third match is played if the two teams end up tied.
