FaZe Clan Fortnite streamer ‘Cizzorz’ obstacle course, entitled ‘Deathrun,’ has become quite the phenomenon within the community and the newest version of it has a new world record.

Cizzorz’s original Deathrun was made back in December and ended up being quite the hit, with many prominent streamers taking a crack at it. 

As such, when Deathrun 2.0 was finally released, everyone was quick to try their wits at the new course, but given that it was even tougher than the first one, beating it is no easy feat.

Featuring 14 levels filled with traps, obstacles, and various other precarious challenges, few have managed to get through the entire course period.

Of course, nothing ever seems to be impossible when it comes to gaming feats, and that happens to be the case here as someone has managed to blow through Deathrun 2.0 in record time.

It took just 10 days for ‘Eskay’ to finish Deathrun 2.0 with an insane time of 7:18.

Eskay has a long history with the Deathrun, almost winning the first contest in December with a time of 3:19. The winner of the original Deathrun contest, Suezhoo, beat him by just two seconds.

Taking part in these Deathrun contests has likely been a bit of an escape for many players, such as Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop, who have grown tired of the current Fortnite meta.

With the growing fatigue of the meta and the $5,000 up for grabs for those who finish the course with the three best times, you can bet there will be plenty more competition for the top spot before long.

Hot on the heels of Minecraft’s huge arrival in Smash Ultimate, could Fortnite be next in line? Epic Games creative director Donald Mustard has reportedly hinted at that being the case.

Smash Bros. collaborations have long-been one of the most exciting aspects of Nintendo’s popular fighting game. Teasers are always the talk of the town as developers hint at what major addition could be on the horizon in a nearby update.

While the Smash community is still getting comfortable with Minecraft’s Steve joining the fight, it could already be time to look towards the next character.

A recent Zoom call between Geoff Keighley, Donald Mustard, and select fans was kept under wraps at the time. Whatever fans asked, whatever topics came up, it wasn’t for the general public in the moment.

However, as with most things in the gaming industry, certain details have reportedly leaked online days after the fact. Among the topics discussed was a Fortnite crossover in Smash: here’s what the Creative Director had to say.

Throughout this Zoom call, “a few hints had been revealed about the future of Fortnite,” prominent leaker FireMonkey’ said on Oct. 28. The first major revelation is a Fortnite announcement is lined up for The Game Awards on Dec. 10.

This isn’t the first time Epic’s battle royale has made a splash at Keighley’s annual awards show. The Block was revealed back in 2018 and another big announcement could be lined up for the 2020 show. Perhaps it relates to an upcoming in-game event as the new Season draws near. Or maybe there’s a chance we see another Smash tie-in revealed rather soon.

2018’s Game Awards shocked the world with one of the biggest Smash crossover announcements yet. Persona 5’s Joker joined the fight and now Fortnite could be next for a similar reveal. 

When pressed on the subject, Donald Mustard didn’t shut down the possibility. He simply “stated he can’t comment about it,” according to the leaked intel. Funnily enough, last time a dev said “no comment,” their game ended up in Smash.

Obviously, there’s no telling how significant this kind of crossover might be. We’ve seen everything from entirely new fighters to simple Mii skins as well. Given the popularity of Fortnite, however, there’s every chance a crossover with Smash would make waves in the industry.

Keep your eyes peeled over the coming weeks for any additional teasers. Keighley’s 2020 Game Awards kicks off on Thursday, December 10.
