FaZe Clan’s Cloak comes incredibly close to breaking Fortnite world record

Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore, a professional Fortnite player for FaZe Clan, came unbelievably close to breaking the world record for kills in a solo game, missing out by a single kill.

It would not have been the first time he has broken records either, as he and his FaZe teammates (Tfue, Jaomock and Tennp0) previously held the record for kills in a squad game, although it has since been beaten.

But he was incredibly close to reclaiming a world record, after hitting 29 kills in a solo game – one short of the 30 managed by OpTic Gaming player ‘Baldy’ back in May 2018.

Admittedly, the 29 kill game managed by Cloak was not in the standard solo playlist, but rather the limited time mode ‘Soaring Solos’, which allows players to use their gliders during the game, when jumping from a significant height.

The mode was previously only in 50v50, but as it was a fan favorite so Epic Games added it to solos too. Other than the glider usability, there is little difference to regular solos, but it does essentially prevent taking fall damage.

You can watch the full game from Cloak below, which as he explains should have been 31 kills, but “2 kills got stolen”.

He was also perhaps slightly benefited by players ‘stream sniping’ him at the start of the game, however, it was bound to be a popular landing area due to the change to Loot Lake.

If he had got the 31 kills, it is unlikely the record would have stood considering it was in soaring solos, although there is a good chance that 29 is in fact the record for the Soaring Solos mode specifically.

Epic Games tease more “exclusive” content coming for Fortnite Crew members

According to a brand-new leaked survey, Epic Games have been asking players what they might want to see added as a feature to the Fortnite Crew subscription service, hinting that they’re open to changing up what’s included in the future.

If you took a look at the Fortnite Crew subscription service and thought that it didn’t include enough or didn’t include much that you’d be interested in, Epic Games may be heeding those concerns.

According to Fortnite leaker ‘iFireMonkey,’ a brand-new survey sent out to Fortnite players might indicate that the developer might be open to changing up what a Fortnite Crew subscription comes with. Specifically, the survey asks players to rank what benefits would be most or least important to be added to the service.

Currently, the Fortnite Crew service includes an exclusive skin, some V-Bucks and a free battle pass.

The question itself features a wide range of choices. Some are simply new ways to purchase Fortnite Crew subscriptions, like the ability to buy the service in retail stores and multi-month options.

There are also more gameplay-centric choices, including everything from custom matchmaking options to cosmetics that show off how long you’ve had a subscription. Beyond that, there’s even a choice for a monthly physical mailer with additional rewards outside of what’s given digitally.

Despite this development, it remains to be seen if the company will actually implement any changes. While this survey might indicate that the company is, at the very least, open to adding features to the service, it’s important to remember that it’s not a guarantee that they will.

Currently, the service includes a free battle pass, an exclusive Crew pack, 1000 V-Bucks and an exclusive Member’s Only emote (at least for a limited time), so the implementation of any one of the features listed in the leaked survey would be a welcome addition, especially after its rocky start.

For any updates regarding new features in the Fortnite Crew service and Fortnite in general, keep it locked to Dexerto.
